Monday Madness Unboxes Elephants!

Last November the bot came across a listing for tiny elephants specially bred to survive intercontinental flights – yet versatile enough to help out with common household tasks. Trunks are so useful. The bot buys them faster and faster now as subscribers have given the pachyderms lots of thumbs up feedback. Vendors have been hastily squeezing the tiny elephants into packages by the handful as the orders come in.

I mention this as our friends at Monday Madness have released their first unboxing video of 2018. They got some of the better elephant packages, along with quite a lot of tat and some surprises. Halfway through the video an excited woman off-camera exclaims “This is the most amazing day of my life!” Hyperbole? Watch the video and judge for yourself.

Item Of The Day: 100 Antique Goose Feather Pens

Today I went through all the packages ever ordered by the bot and found the most expensive, most extravagant, product bought so far. This $284.05 set of 100 antique goose feather pens was sent to an actual subscriber.

Was it what they were expecting? Did they need 100 goose feather pens in their life? Their only keyword was ‘antique pen’. So the answer is probably yes, although they didn’t leave feedback.

To get packages like this add ‘antique pen’ as a keyword. Depending on your budget, you might not get 100 pens all at once. But unless you are supplying an army of medieval scribes that is probably just fine.

 

 

Left Over Funds

I got a good question in last week by email…

Q: If I cancel my subscription, will I still receive all of the packages that are on there way or not yet purchased? If I had, say, $10 left over that the bot hasn’t spent, will the bot continue to spend that money and send packages after I cancel?

A: You will get all the packages that you paid for. So if you cancel and have $10 left, the bot will continue to spend the money and send packages. This means that you will likely continue getting a package every now and then well after you have canceled the subscription.

January Top Keywords

I got an email yesterday from someone who had just signed up and gotten into her account…

Q: I just got a pw reset email and I’m IN!!  Yay!  What are some really great keywords?? Thanks!!

A: It depends on what you want, all the keywords without an asterisk that you see in the drop down menu are pretty good.

Some of the ‘camping’ products are very useful. Also ‘cat toy’ and ‘dog’ get a lot of great products. If you like crafting ‘beads’, ‘arts and crafts’ and ‘washi tape’ get you some good stuff.
You can also go very specific, like only getting ‘elephant’ packages for a month. There are lots of good ones.
I put together the list of the most popular keywords from the last 30 days and was shocked at the changes from December’s list. First, dinosaurs are now more popular than cats. The top keyword also went from 16% of all addresses (cats in December) to 13% of all addresses (dinosaur in January). This is probably because I added a button. Just click on Surprise Me! on the Keywords Tab to add in random keywords ten at a time. You can of course click on the keyword to un-select it. Some folks without keywords must have surprised themselves in the past month to dilute the top-heavy keywords like dinosaur, cat and Lego.

What has Matt Crawford got now?

Matt is out with another unboxing video. What does he get? I have yet to get an email from Matt. Glad he has given me a heads up in this video! Orders marked as missing are eventually replaced by the bot with a new package at no extra cost… which is possible because very few orders are marked as missing.

As you can see, the bot has lots of tagged keywords for most items to better get you what you want.

Matt Crawford’s Next Two Packages

Matt Crawford is out with a second unboxing video. You can see in the beginning he shows the tab where you can give the bot feedback on items. I just added the little descriptions you can see for each item. Anyone can update those descriptions by clicking ‘Edit’ to tell the bot what the product is actually like.
