HOW TO GET YOUR BUSINESS CARDS FOR HALF THE PRICE

HOW TO GET YOUR BUSINESS CARDS FOR HALF THE PRICE Our digital age has seen the end of many paper supports and advertisement but business cards remain the one compulsory thing needed by anyone with a working business.
This includes me and I realized last week that my last batch of business cards was running very low.
So I went to Vistaprint, probably because it’s easier and because I have been using their services for years.
Anyways I believe that many of you in Europe call on them too.
And I am just going to explain to you how to get a 50% discount from Vistaprint without any code or anything, just patience.

So I uploaded my design, checked on my options, finalized my order and damn, it was simply too expensive ! Understanding that one of the worse point of Vistaprint is their prohibitive shipping fees, the total price of the basket needs to remain low.
So I simply closed my browser and left it at that.


A few hours later I received an email that invited me to finalize my order with a link.
I clicked on the link but the price was still the same, I closed my browser again.

But yesterday after only 3 days of patience, I received a new email from Vistaprint inviting me to finalize my order and this time I think the guys knew I wasn’t going to pay the standard price with my order so there was a 50% discount directly applied.
And I did order my business cards.

Now I am going to tell you why you could benefit from the same discount, by simply doing the same thing.
You can imagine that a big website based company like Vistaprint receives thousands of orders every day and everything is automated.
They surely don’t have the time to review every single order and take the time to respond to them accordingly.
This means that they must have automated a script that runs 3 days after an aborted order, automatically offering 50% off the initial price.
I certainly don’t believe that an operator took the time to review my 50€ order and then waited 3 days with a post it on her desk and then decided to kindly offer me a 50% discount from her own will.
No I believe this is just standard procedure.

So next time you need to place an order with these guys, just finalize the order up to the payment part and don’t pay anything.
Just wait for them to lower their prices to an acceptable threshold.
How long will this technique last ? Hopefully long enough, there is no reason for them to change it, after all, let people in a hurry pay double and reward the patient ones.
