As we approach the date of reckoning I figured I would post some of my tips and tricks to having a successful live sale.

Tips and Tricks to Live Sales:

#1
DO NOT USE YOUR PHONE!
You will not beat those of us on computers to those sweet $5 frags. Get on a computer with decent internet connection and you will be fine. At the same time have your mobile ready cause TSA VIPs get some snazzy deals via text during live sales.

#2 I have had great success using Google Chrome as my browser because Google saves all my passwords and can save your CC data if prompted.

#3 Use a browser auto refresher. There is an addon for chrome and you can set the frequency of the auto refresh. I have mine set to 7 seconds for most sales, but will drop it to 5 if needed.

#4 Make a list. And check it twice. No reason to accidentally buy the same frag twice.

#5 Set a budget before hand. Come up with what ever number best fits your personal expenses, and I just use a calculator to keep track and try to not go over.

#6 Buy the mystery frag. If one is offered buy that sucker because 9/10 it is a super quality piece that may not have been revealed during the live sale. TSA looks at your order and picks a frag that is in the same genre of the other corals in your order.

#7 Pace Yourself. This is a marathon not a sprint. Take breaks often and just chill in the chat. Also for every 20 minutes of screen time take 30 seconds and close your eyes.

That's all I have for right now I'll add more if I come up with anything or add some yourself so everyone can have fun during the sale.
Great tips. Love the browser refresher extension!

I hate to be the only one to say...
But your timing is wrong TSA...

It says available from 11pm to 11pm both days...
Sorry! Someone had to point this out!
Wonder how many coral you can post in one second for both days!!!

You must have the whole team uploading at the same time that very second!
Skill! Love it!

Side note! I can’t wait for this to start!
I also signed up for the texting alerts.
My goal is to spend a few dollars... or just not tell my wife!
I’ll ask for forgiveness later:)
