So I suspect we won't see any more freebies. But that's just me.
Buddy codes were awesome when they introduced them! There was no limits, so you could use as many as you wanted to order as many items you needed. I remember placing orders with 10 different items, including at least 7 or 8 of them with buddy codes. HK prices are already good, but being able to use so many buddy codes at once was great (with no limit on individual qty). Sure enough, now that you can only use one buddy code, with a max of 3 items for that single buddy code, it's pretty much useless. So, as a regular buyer, I would be happy if they simply raise those limits (only one per order and max 3 items is really useless) to something reasonable like 3 buddy codes per orders and a much higher qty limit (5 to 10 items, maybe depending on the items)

I wish they'd just do away with the gimmicks and offer their best pricing to so called "platinum" customers all the time. Its annoying that you have to jump through hoops to get a better deal. But that's just me.

Speaking of me... I really have no idea why I'm subscribed to this thread. So I think I'll just unsubscribe now

doesn't everybody know what the freebie "promotion" actually is?!?!?!!?!
anthony hand said it himself - it is to reduce inventory on items that don't move - THAT'S IT!!! the advertisement value is secondary. and no, it is not done as a "favor" for loyal customers LMAO! wait till pre-xmas time when they need to make more warehouse space for items they plan on selling for the holiday season for the next "freebies"

There're some 1ct items. Just order 9 of them, in 9 different orders, and select self-pick up in HK. Oh you need to change your address country to Hong Kong first to get this option,

Then viola, platinum. And you get your 9cts refunded after 2 weeks.
