Gearbest Points Expiration = March 31st!! (going... going ... POOF!)

This is just a friendly reminder to people who may have somehow missed the notice:



             YOUR GEARBEST POINTS MAY BE EXPIRING ON


                     MARCH 31


Any points that was accrued prior to October 31, 2015 will expire at midnight March 31 (not sure whether this is GMT or local).

Reference discussion: [link]


How to Use Points [reference link]

50 points = $1
When your points reach 50 (minimum), you can use them for discount.
The discount (from the Points) cannot exceed 30% of the final commodity value.
Coupons cannot be used together with points to reduce prices.

The guidelines for using GearBest points
The amount of points awarded is not affected by coupons. For example: commodity value = $10, use 10% off coupon = $9. You still receive 10 points.
Points cannot be redeemed against certain special sale items.
GearBest.com reserves the right to amend these rules and provisions.

Rule 1-1 as it applies to life, take it as it comes.

I was planning to buy a couple cheap stuff but ended up spending $68… just to use my $4 worth of points. Big Smile

Already have 2 BLF D80s but just got myself a third one. Oh…

Lol! I spent about $5 on three C8 holsters. GearBest calls this holster the "C8 Series Durable Nylon Flashlight Torch Holster."

It works well for the BLF Kronos X6, and is acceptable, if not perfect, for the BLF Kronos X5. I am also using one of these for the Sunwayman T25C, which fits well, and the BLF D80, for which it is only a bit long. Ironically, the ThorFire C8 pushes the limit. It fits, but I have to push it all the way into the holster in order to securely fasten the cover.

I sympathize. I guess the lesson here is to spend your points as fast as you earn them.

For some reason I thought the points had more purchasing power when you allowed them to accumulate. If, however, they are all worth two cents each, no matter how many you have, then I will use as many as I can on every order.

11000 points. Yikes! That would have been worth $220 in discounts.

But like MontyPyfon pointed out, you would have needed to spend another $733.33 in order to use up all of those points.

And here I am, worried about losing my $1.60 worth of points. Blushing

Yup. The more points you use up, since you never get to use them all, the more you accumulate.
It’s marketing for lemmings.

What the bright people in their marketing department haven’t figured out, is that the customer ends up feeling a bit cheated by the way they allow you to use (limited) and expire the points.

What they ought to do is declare an amnesty or jubilee every year — use up ALL your points on any and all purchases, this one time each year.

That’ll reel in more suckers than the current method.

I resemble this remark.
