Enjoy theChr.Spirit: stocking? another free prize?

  • anyword Thursday, December 3, 2015 11:29 PM Reply
    The game http://www.dx.com/Event/2015christmas-santatree?utm_source=dx&utm_medium=homerotate&utm_campaign=en20151201santatree

    "Rules" button.
    Two oddities:

    2) Decide within 30 seconds if you want to keep the FREE box prize. Not sure? You will get it automatically in 30 seconds! Want another FREE box prize? We will choose a new one for you!
    ... choose "want another", get nothing else but offer to try another boxes (not free).

    6) Collect and exchange Christmas Stockings for prizes in the exchange zone every day.
    ... how to collect it?

    Maybe it's the whole idea to CONFUSE, to desorient, to make stupid, to force to buy IMPULSIVELY - random goods for random prices due random discounts as result... ok i've got this idea, maybe reasonable...

    HUH?
    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    Sorry for bring you trouble forcing to read my stupidity. Please excuse me, i'm just rustic savage. It was my very first experience in computers, shopping, internet, money.... of course i was wrong.
    Thanks for you kindly comment. I'm delighted how wittily! Please do more gags, you are talented, it's really important.

    By the way i have received email "8% off for SKU 355780" when something was found in free box, then "i want another" was choosen, then "Keep calm and come back tomorrow for more" was seen.
    But i'm not sure to remember exactly what was done by me and what was shown to me.

    Still looks meaningless from my point. Maybe i will try once more tomorrow, maybe some interest will be found... shop looks absurd "as is", without clear ways to have significant discount. Waste of time.

    You can either accept whatever is in the box, or try again, but there's no guarantee that you'll get a better prize, or anything at all. I also refused the first offer and got nothing in the 2nd box, 2 days in a row. It's just luck.

    Thank you, captain!
    For you and/or anyone else who's really interested in subj (if any)..

    ... before some moment was:
    DX - You win a Coupon Code, Want it?
    ME - No, I want another prize
    DX - We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Open 1 more box with your DX Points.
    NOTHING new is found in account neither in email

    ... after some moment is:
    DX - 1 GC?
    ME - No, I want another prize
    DX - 3 GC.

    So that issue seems to be fixed "by itself" and/or by special programmer's attention.

    Stockings are collected absolutely the same way as GiftCards (special page in your account) and Coupons (discount codes to email, each code is for the only one "semirandom" product as i know still) - from the same boxes.
    This kind of junk is somewhere between "coupons" and "giftcards": some quantity of "stockings" can be exchanged for one "giftcard", no other purpose.

    It's all nice but i still have no idea what is reasonable to buy here even with such amazing lotto.
    Prices are absurd even after discounts, while i can choose to buy the same anywhere anytime without brainfucking.
    Assortment is, hmmm... i can't see something unique at all, especially which i want RIGHT NOW, IN SECONDS!!!

    Maybe i just cooking it wrong...

    Try to correct misprints - get "You're posting to frequently. But don't try so hard!", what the ass was used to especially design such feature in such idiotic manner.
    Just one more detail of another one "chabudou". Boring. Don't care.

    @anyword

    How did you get any stockings? Is this a way to exchange the coupons of other coupons?

    Hmm.
    English is not my native but am i really so unclear?

    Stockings are found in the same boxes, it is just a third kind of item.
    Coupons are foolish - for example "8% off for the only SKU 262014". Percent is idiotic, SKU seems to be choosen randomly by computer (so it will be mostly idiotic too).
    Giftcards are discounts up to 50% for small sums - that which i know about. If you think you really need even such GREAT discounts for something HERE... i don't.
    Stocking is "a piece of giftcard". One stocking is nothing, two is nothing yet, three as minimum can be exchanged to giftcard 1/3. Maybe you've seen the "stocking exchange zone" button.

    Possibility to exchange coupons like "8% off for the only SKU 262014" for something less idiotic - hmmm... don't you think it would kill the whole idea, the whole STYLE of this promo?

    I can explain in russian if still unclear.

    One more issue: try to post - input symbols shown - get "verification code is wrong". Like porno.

    Thanks @anyword
    I understand it now.

    By the way, I don't think an exchange zone would kill the idea. It would not cost DX more, people would get both a surprise gift and the ability to exchange it for something they want more. And exchanging coupons for gift cards would be nice to, in my opinion.

    My Russian isn't to good though, I know about 5 words :-), so English is fine :-)

    Hehe.

    When you say "exchange zone" - you don't mean existent feature which is so called already.
    You want just the way to get something reasonable instead of junk offered to you.
    But why they offer junk instead of something reasonable at once? Obviously 'cause it is exactly what intended to do.

    Why do not give just simple XX% discount, without that contrived complication of "stockings / email codes / exchange zones"?
    Because, you still do not understand: it is IDEA. It is style. It is overchinese.
    Customer must feel like in casino: all around is flashing, tinkling, luring, shouting, confusing - with the only goal TO MAKE YOU FOOL.

    What they do in fact: set price 200+ percents relatively to the average market, then force you to fight for discount up to 50% in the maximally odd, thru-ass manner.
    As if you are child without calculator.

    Are you novice here too, yeah? Do you understand clearly what kind of product you are interested here to buy for money? Or you hope to get just anything for free or extremely cheap, by chance?
    Long time ago i know this site's name, i know it's very popular, i know many people are using it somehow - but i don't realize FOR WHY... i have the only guess "here's some ways to have some freebie from time to time". But subj seems to be not such way.

    5 russian words for example: ushanka, balalaika, vodka, moskva, putin.
    and some more new words for you: matreshka, medved, sputnik, privet, spasibo.

    If you don't like the game, don't play it. If you don't like DX's prices, don't buy here.

    You see how simple that was? :)

    edit - typo

    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
