I don't see how this is a good deal...

Take reeses, for instance.  At walmart, I can get a 2.5 lb bag for $9 (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Reese-Peanut-Butter-Cup-Miniatures-2lb-8-oz/10449925).  That's $3.60/lb.  Your price is 1 coin per lb, which is $4.80/lb.

Am I missing something here?  Are reeses just a particularly bad example?

Walmart is a massive company. They are hard to compete with sometimes. My price should be better than most retailers but i cant beat everybody. Even if i cant beat that price i still have alot of things going on that make me a better deal than walmart. Number one reason is walmart doesnt accept coins. You have to spend money in your pocket. You work 40 hours a week for that money. Bitcoins are generated daily for nothing. Which would you rather spend on your candy fix? Walmart charges tax. They dont have the selection that i do. They wont cut you a break when you buy a few pounds. They wont give returning customers free samples. Im sure if i think about this long enough i will come up with enough reasons why you should buy from me even if my price is $1 more.

I do appreciate tips.       18JgZuNaW8hLV2uMGAcbUhHTVuPGfvA2jC

Walmart is a huge multi billion dollar company. Im small time. They are hard to compete with for certain items. My price should be better than most retailers but im not going to be able to beat everybody all the time. Even if i cant beat walmart for reeses i still have a few things in my favor. Walmart doesnt accept coins. Walmart charges tax. Walmart doesnt have the selection that i do. Walmart doesnt sell by the pound. Walmart wont cut you a break when you buy a few pounds. Walmart wont give returning customers free samples. Walmart isnt supporting the bitcoin community. Im sure if i think about this long enough i will come up with more reasons why you should buy from me instead of walmart.
All good and valid reasons indeed.  Wink  I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something in particular.  People were making this out to be the deal of the century, but then the first item I calculated was significantly higher than a retail store.  Just wasn't expecting it, that's all.  Also, no sales tax in Oregon (I've already been taxed through my income), so no value gained there!

I know i will get some criticism now and then. I understand your point of view. Why buy from me if somebody else has a better price? Its a good argument. I may not always have the best price for every candy against every other retailer. But if you consider everything else i think im offering a good deal. Its really convenient to shoot me a coin or 2 and have candy show up at your door. Who wouldnt like that?

Check out this giant gummy bear i can get you.

I understand. I know i will get some constructive criticism now and then. If you focus on the price of 1 item i understand your point of view. If you can do better somewhere else why buy from me? Its a good argument. But if you consider everything im offering and you actually try my service im confident i will convince you this is a good deal. Walmart wont take care of you and interact with you the way i will. You cant PM walmart and say hey i want 1 pound a lemon heads 2 pounds runts 10 pounds of snickers and a case of air heads. They wont make that happen for you. I will. And if all my counter arguments isnt enough to convince you to buy your candy from me exclusively check out this giant gummy bear i can get you. I think having this in my inventory makes me the undisputed king of candy.     Grin




Uhm, ok, how much??  Cheesy

I can't argue with the selection argument - most of the stuff at wally world isn't sold in those huge 2.5 lb bags, thus less bonus for buying in bulk!

My selection will grow too. What i have listed is only whats been requested since ive been here. I can get alot more than whats advertised.

Im not sure how much for that killer gummy. I stumbled across it while browsing our inventory. I didnt look in to the price. I will find out.

Also, my price isnt set in stone. Price will vary depending on availability. If we get a big shipment of something the price will go down.

Yankee, you can have whatever you want. Just let me know.

I do appreciate tips.       18JgZuNaW8hLV2uMGAcbUhHTVuPGfvA2jC

...those exist? I had half thought that they were just made up for the 70s Willy Wonka movie.

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the culture of naive fools and conmen, the former convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and the latter arriving by the busload to devour them.
