Does that really counts as a “Buy one Get one” promo ? it rather feels like “buy one get a free gift” bonus.

This would be a great deal for someone who needs a flashlight and an alarm clock.

edit: I have edited my previous response because it sounded rude. apologies.

It’s becoming impossible to give anything away here. Complaining about free. No worries Barry. Keep on doing what you do.

Deep discounts, coupon codes, group buys, just pay shipping, contest, giveaways, it’s never enough Barry. They won’t be happy till you send them one of everything you make and, it better be to their house in 48 hours or they will start a thread complaining.

This is a clear example of false advertising.

Do you really think we're that stupid?

Don’t forget the language and cultural barrier. Could just be a mistake.

I hope you're right, but the vast majority of other Chinese sellers know what "buy one get one free" means.

Have you read this thread?

"The problem" has been described quite well by several BLF members.

I see this a lot and think/hope this is just a language barrier issue.

I've been on BLF for almost ten years.

During the last seven or so years, I have paid great attention to what goes on here.

I don't think the problem with the OP has happened before on BLF (during that time), or if it has, it hasn't happened very often.

So while I hope it's a language barrier issue, I highly doubt it.

Perhaps I should clarify I didn’t mean specifically with Barry/Sofirn or BLF but with China based deals in general. Either way it’s false advertising in my eyes but I’m not going to get upset about it.

I think that blatant false advertising is insulting to the consumers' intelligence, but I'm not going to get upset over it either.

It is interesting to talk about, however.

It is a nice light had one for about a week now and 15% clickable coupon even without the clock which looks decent.

Mode spacing pretty good though don’t look for low. Well spaced Med-Hi-Turbo.

Well made, straightforward light. Nice mag switch.

Keywords in false advertising, deliberately misleads.

Nonsense, just another reason for people to complain.

I don’t care if you don’t like the deal or not. Don’t buy it. The man is providing a opportunity, nothing more, nothing less. Everyone would be jumping right on in if it was a 30% off coupon.

Ya wonder why GAW’s are becoming less common.

I’ll buy one because I like the light. Wouldn’t have thought about buying one if I didn’t see this post. I don’t need an alarm clock but it’s a pleasant gesture. More than can be said for the feedback on the post in general.

Don’t make this another group people will be embarrassed to be apart of. To be blunt, just shut up and move on. Yes, that was meant to sound rude.

Hi there, please stop arguing about the offer and about other users’ reactions to it. Please just move on if it doesn’t interest you.

I don't know if there's a violation of BLF's rules and I don't mean to offend you or defend Barry here. But INMHO this is clearly NO false advertising. From your link:

"False advertising is the use of false, misleading, or unproven information to advertise products to consumers."

As far as I can see none of these terms apply to the OP. I read "Buy an SD05 set and get a free alarm clock worth $18.99."

 

Sure, the thread title is a bit misleading and should be renamed but some prudence and thoughtfulness can't be wrong, especially with a language barrier. Wink

Anyway, I will check with Barry directly to see what he can do to de-escalate and to avoid conflictual situations like this one in the future.

A great Sunday to everyone! Smile

Barry is a good man, and has been a joy to have around this forum for the last 5+ yrs. We wouldn’t have our LT1 lantern and a few others if not for him helping push the projects through.

The title/OP of the thread used to read "buy one get one free", which was misleading to say the least.

(That's not what buy one get one free means.)

Why do you think so many BLF members were concerned about the OP?

...

Thanks you for correcting the error, and thanks for the offer!  :-)
