    To answer your question - that is effectively what they are doing right now. If I didn't happen to sign up at a certain period of time, I am now locked out of sales going forwards, basically meaning I am paying more and have less selection. Pretty much kills my incentive to shop there since I can pay full retail anywhere...

    You are not locked out of sales you just have to wait longer.

    As in crappy selection is generally left - being locked out of anything decent.

    It isn't that big of a deal, I just don't shop at Mr Porter because of it.

    hmm just an involuted sales campaign wherein initial and loyally zealous clients are given status flattering labels like 'founding member' as if they signed some declaration of loyalty for having their ears to the ground when the site dropped this promotion like a secret handshake or whatever, really just a euphemism for the security code on the back of each said members' cc since mr.p marketers know they'll net more from these like niche persons' sartorial zealotry in aggregate purchases than the marginal ppl a few branches removed from the main artery of porter's ad grapevine could have made.

    and yeah, I'm hella jelly, they need to have some kind of second chance offer for all the sleepers.



    that's like saying we're the butcher's best customers so pay less for our fillet mignon than you'll cough up for the gristle and scraps left in the afternoon. fuck it, I'll take a rack of lamb from a different butcher instead.

    Don't worry since they reduced the discount to 30 most everything will be left for you vultures when sale goes public.

    Pretty sure they're phasing out the founding member advantage (see above) for this reason.

    Only post in the last little while, excepting jet's, that makes any sense. Of course, more useful and less assholey than jet's, but that's par for the course. A time tested sales strategy that works remarkably well. Protecting core customers, especially with so many competitors these days, is key to making a successful business. And Net-a-porter is one of the most successful full priced designer sites on the internet. It's pretty much the gold standard. The regular roll-outs of merchandise, the presentation, the sellatorial copy, is pretty well calibrated.

    Incidentally. Ralph Lauren just started their 40% + 15% off sale, including RRL, for their "most valued customers", if you are interested. I'll probably get sucked into a few things.

    ^ If you're getting something < $115 or so, you may be better off using FREESHIPAW12 to take off the $35 shipping charge.

    Beware, they add about 20% in customs fees/duties when you check out.

    Edit: but I still bought something :embar: MIDSEASONUS30 also works
