Today I have a fun giveaway to share from Massdrop. I’ve talked about Massdrop before, but if you’re new or need a refresher, here’s the scoop: Massdrop is an online retailer, but not in a traditional sense. They’re more like a broker, helping consumers get a lower price on desirable items by negotiating bulk pricing with the vendors. They list a new offer or two daily, called “drops”. The item is only available for about a week and as more people opt into the “drop” the price will go down.
You can order the item by clicking Join Now – this means you are committed to buy the product, no matter what drop point is reached. But if you click the “Commit to Join” button, you will only purchase the item if the lowest price is met by the end of the drop. You can also opt out before the drop ends and you are not officially charged until the “drop” ends. You can read more about how it all works on the Massdrop FAQ’s page.
I keep an eye on the latest drops all the time and I love it for stocking up on items that I’ve had my eye on or use regularly. Just last week I ordered a bundle of Alison Glass’s latest Sun Print fat quarters as well as some Clover flat-head quilting pins that I’ve needed for a while. They frequently have great drops on basics like thread, notions, and other sewing supplies – including sewing machines sometimes. Right now there is an Olfa rotary blade drop – a great time to stock up on blades!
The reason Massdrop can bring great prices is because they don’t order the product until the drop ends and there is a known quantity of orders. The items are shipped soon thereafter, so keep in mind that your item will be delivered about a week or so after the drop ends. Personally, I’m okay with not having the instant gratification because I like the discount and I’m usually buying something I’ve had my eye on for a while or I’m stocking up on supplies.
Today, Massdrop is giving away a bundle of Alison Glass Handcrafted 1/2 yards to one of you. (I LOVE this bundle! – It is also available to buy!) If you’d like to enter, click here to sign up for a Massdrop account to get notified of the latest drops. If you’ve already signed up, just leave a comment on this post, letting me know that.
