im sorry but I don't get these live sales... any tips for a first timer? I messed up last time and just bought from the website
Just a few tips to surviving a Live Sale.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.
Live Sales take a lot of practice to perfect, I myself have yet to score a $1 coral but I have snagged one or two $5s.
