There’s a new service started just a few days ago called Buyapowa. It aims to bring the bulk buy discounts that have previously only been enjoyed by retailers and make them available to you and me.
Robin, who is part of Buyapowa got in touch with me a week ago to ask: What sort of items would I like to see discounts on? I gave him a few excited suggestions and invited him to pose the question to London Cyclist Blog readers.
This is how it works: Each “co-buy” lasts a limited amount of time and once it’s sold out it’s gone for good. As more people join the process the price drops. In the end everyone pays the best price (lowest) that it reaches.
There’s a big social element to this too by getting your friends involved in co-buys of items you think they’ll like too (hence again the importance of picking the right products in the first place). In the end the person who’s invited the most friends gets the item for free!
So what kind of cycling products would you like see discounted? (There’s a good chance Robin will be able to get them so have a good think!)
