Aveyou flash sale will be limited

shamonica38663shamonica38663 Posts: 207Registered Users
An important note regarding tomorrow's flash sale: With the current busy holiday season, the flash sale has been limited to the first 1,500 customers. Please note, the sale will run from 1PM-3:30PM EST tomorrow, Tuesday November 22nd. If we reach 1,500 customers before 3:30PM, the sale will end early. We hope you can understand and we would like to sincerely thank you for being loyal shoppers!


Last flash sale, we had a very large amount of customers, however we are seeing many, many more shopping carts created in anticipation for the sale than our staff can handle within a reasonable time. This is why we have made this decision. We did not anticipate this type of large response and although we are very grateful for our customers, but since we are a smaller beauty boutique, we simply cannot handle that many orders during this already busy time. We hope to make this up to our customers with more frequent sales like this during the new year.

This is all from their facebook page.

    uh-oh...

    Hmm, I wonder how large of a response they had. I think this will cause even more of an urgency.

    Boo! Now I have to figure out how to order on my cell during class. Perhaps if I explain to my teacher how important it is for me to order the $120+ in my cart of curl junkie he'll understand.

    If there really is a ton of people, the website may even start acting up before the sale starts since everyone will want their cart ready by 12:59.

    Ave you told me my groupons need to be used seperately. This will be tricky.

    After looking over all of the sales from other vendors, I noticed that the Aveyou is the most cost effective! I was about to budget for bee mine but I might be able to sub a product (luscious cream) for the curl rehab or deep fix... yeah I need this sale!!!

    My work computer classifies aveyou as a "forum" and it's blocked ( but not nc.com?!) and my BB won't even dare act like it can be up to speed enough for me to shop on it... so guess I am out of the rat race for the sale:tongue6:
  • happyfacehappyface Posts: 845Registered Users
    Ahhh this sucks but i understand. I dont even want hair products. I just want one thing. They can quickly pack it in a box. I will probably miss this sale. :-(

    Not sure if this applies to the brush heads but Ave You said:

    Avenue You Beauty StoreTamala,

    I just received word that Clarisonic will not be available for sale during the flash sale. We are under a contract with them that does not allow us to include their products in any sales. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Ok the best way to tackle this is to create shopping lists based on your groupon or savemore vouchers that you have. For instance I have 1 groupon and 2 save more vouchers (1 $30, 1 $50, and 1 $75). I just finished getting my shopping lists together that get me as close to the amount of the voucher that I have after the 40%discount (and with the $75 I can use the $15 off $75 dollar purchase which means I really have $90 worth of products). You can't use all the vouchers in one big cart so be proactive and split them up ahead of time so you have your math all figured out.

    I like that they said they'll have sales like this through the year; it made me go back and remove stuff I don't really need, and may not get to until well into next year, from the list. I think I would have spent more than necessary if I hadn't seen this.

    I am still working from home tomorrow because I must get in on this :evil4:, but my cart is much lighter.

    Ave you told me my groupons need to be used seperately. This will be tricky.

    Does this mean you can not use your groupon certificates to pay the balance after the sales discount?
  • CocoTCocoT Posts: 5,330Registered Users
    I was looking at their facebook wall and they seem pretty confident that their servers and product inventory shouldn't be an issue on the day of the sale. So no worries! They keep the most popular products well in stock. I've ordered from there many times and curl junkie has never been out of stock. Just get your order in asap so that you can be one of the 1500 lucky ones

    This means that you can apply the discount code for the 40% off and then only use one pre-paid voucher such as a Groupon, Savemore, etc. You may not use more than one voucher to pay.......one pre-paid voucher per order after applying the discount code.

    Hey ladies,

    According to AVEYOU, we CANNOT USE our KGB/Groupon/SAVEMORE/MISC vouchers during tomorrow's sale. In addition to the Clarisonic being excluded and limited to the first 1500 customers. I was planning on using my $75 voucher tomorrow. The PJ in me is devastated.*le sigh* See copy of verbiage below:

    Avenue You Beauty Store Hi XXXX,

    In the fine print of your voucher, it should mention that it can't be combined with any other offers so unfortunately, we will not be accepting any deal vouchers during the hours of the sale.
