This evening I stayed at work till about 6.30pm because I was going to purchase a Beauty Box from BeautyReview.co.nz. They were being released at 6pm, and it’s a first in, first serve kind of situation where they only have a limited number of boxes available. So I made sure I was online with my credit card ready when 6pm came along.
Nothing happened and I couldn’t see the box anywhere on the site, so I waited and kept refreshing the page for about five minutes. After five minutes I thought I’d jump onto the forum to see if anyone else was wondering why they hadn’t been released yet. But instead of finding such comments, I found people celebrating that they managed to buy a box.
At that point, I was like ‘What the F!’, went back and refreshed the page again, logged out and then logged in again. Tried a different browser, but I could not find it anywhere. I got so frustrated! So, they sold out and I didn’t get one.
I wouldn’t have been so annoyed if I had missed out because they sold out too quick, but I was annoyed because I wasn’t even given a chance to get one. So I emailed the staff and they were quite baffled as well.
The good news is that more boxes go on sale on Friday, and they seem to have fixed my problem. So I’m going to try my very best to buy a box on Friday. These boxes are pretty popular, and seem to sell out within minutes. They cost just over $50 and contain products to the value of $170 this time I believe. So it’s pretty darn good value.
I was so worked up all night because I missed out, haha. I’ve managed to sort myself out now, and I’ll now look forward to Friday where I get another chance! Time for bed!
Do you get worked out when you miss out on something you really wanted?
