Hobby King "SWARM" Sales

I was just on Hobbyking, and found this link at the bottom of Power HD Metal Gear Servo 60g/12.2g/.16sec Product. Just thought I would try it out and pass on the info so others could see it too.

Just click on the link below. Find the "SWARM" button at the bottom of the product page. Click it and enter the code shown below in the picture.

I notice there is a time limit on the sale. I also see that it takes 6 people for this sale to become active, so you have to register your email and once 6 people are reached, then the sale is active. There is a screenshot picture of the SWARM registration so you can see what happens what you register a SWARM Sale.

Unfortunately, they don't have it site wide, so things like HXT900's can't be SWARM'd.

BTW: I am not purchasing this servo, I just thought I would pass the info along.

Meh, not that great. So you get 0.43 off if you bug 5 other ppl??

I like the popups when you pause on a page for more than a minute.

I am using Twitter to inform people of swarm sale, unsing hashtags #swarmsale and #hobbyking with the description of item and url to access the swarm sale.

If you use something like Seesmic 2 you can create a kind of monitoring tool to manage new swarmsale on hobbyking.

What do you think about his idea ?

1. Use Twitter : #swarmsale #hobbyking Turnigy DS480 Digital Servo 1.85kg 20.16$

With the hashtag #swarmsale and #hobbyking i can manage automatic search in twitter about this topic. Also i give a product description, price and short url to get access to the swarmsale on HobbyKing.

2. Use Seesmic2 (for instance) : to follow swarmsale announces i manage the searches with his ashtag. I will thus have a permanent list of swarmsale occuring, with date/time of annoucement, and be able to choose wich one to join.

This is a "crowdsourcing" example. The bigger the number we are using this the better our chance are to get access to the right offer in time.

Here is a sample of my Seesmic2 desktop application showing a search on #swarmsale hashtag in twitter.
