Double lol. Sales tax on most things in Sweden is 25%.

@cyc wid it I get what you're saying. I find the ways people feel entitled to others' struggles annoying (i.e. "They're not willing to operate on insanely low margins for me?" Or, "They're not willing to accommodate my every request while I try to pay them next to nothing?" And so on...) And a lotta the people complaining are annoying. But hounding people repeatedly on a sales thread for asking about discounts?

Not everyone can afford Visvim, SLP, CP, etc. anywhere near retail man. With the people I've been around and worked with, if you can afford it retail and are still saving money at the end of the month, you're "rich" for my intents and purposes. And if someone is curious if they can get their hands on some for cheaper, that alone isn't enough to pounce on them in a sales thread.

I think it's a bit of a straw man to say that people are getting hounded for asking about sales, per se. People ask about sales all the time itt without getting harangued. What draws most of the ire are (a) the crazy coupon lady equivalents of the men's fashion world who very clearly care very little about men's fashion in and of itself as a thing to be enjoyed and appreciated, but rather are just chasing the sale for sport; and (b) the assholes that expect a Per Se dinner for Bennigan's prices. Both are extremely crass and it shouldn't surprise anyone that it would rub a lot of people the wrong way. It should also be noted that these same people very often contribute little to nothing else to the forum (MrPorterBot, for example, literally only posts itt), and at the end of the day this place is a community much more than it's a repository.

To be honest I kind of find your second point to be practically meaningless. If the difference between being "rich" and not is being able to afford a $300 pair of sneakers at full retail rather than at a discounted price of $200 then you're walking a line so thin I could floss my teeth with it. Even Visvim and SLP are affordable to a lot more people than you would think, with earnest financial discipline. In my experience when most people say they can't "afford" to buy the occasional piece of designer clothing, what they're really saying is that they can't afford to do it without reorganizing their discretionary spending priorities. I completely understand and empathize with the many people who are living by the skin of their teeth, but I also know a lot of people that will whine about barely being able to pay their bills and talk about how they could never afford the kind of clothing I wear...and yet...somehow...they can totally afford to go out to the bar five nights a week and smoke half a pack of cigarettes a day.

I fixed your very off topic thread here and you're welcome. Take the "discussion" to the other thread. Most of the bullshit posted here isn't on topic. Again you're welcome.

part of sf's charm is the random tangents and discussions that pop up in the midst of the chaos. as la guy said, stop trying to perfectly curate and compartmentalize everything. this is a forum, not a sales aggregating website.

There's nothing charming about getting 200 alerts a day the vast majority castigating people for being broke or having the wrong fucking credit cards. Take that shit to the SALES DISCUSSION THREAD I'm sure most people won't need a map to find it and you can all whine, bitch and moan to each other quite happily and those who only want alerts can be oh so happy too.

Bumping to make sure caligari gets notified

Doesn't matter. No one's going to the other thread. 

 

I have a Bloomingdale's 20% off code they sent after an item I ordered was out of stock.  PM if you want it.  Can be stacked w/ current sale prices.  

EDIT: code has been claimed

Hey @Caligari, here's a novel idea. How about you manage your subscriptions instead of worrying about everyone else? Oh wait, it's not so novel. Sorry, shore.

See where it says SALES ALERT THREAD? How about you take the fucking bullshit to the other thread and stay on topic here?

Innovative concept for SF but try it. Whiners love being with other whiners, when it comes to whining nothing begats whining like other whiners whining.

You'll love it!
