Anoher year, another Black Friday, and once again the Black Friday sale was pretty poor. Even leaving aside the whole Fleshbucks disaster, this whole 25% off glass ceiling needs to be shattered by ILF. Black Friday and the holiday season are supposed to be the BEST sales of the year, the time when vigilant shoppers can get awesome deals and amazing discounts on products, not a time when we can all get the discount that customer service will give someone with a complaint.
Yes, I know certain bundles were more than 25% off, but even those were only 33% off, and that discount was only applicable on a very narrow selection of toys. Even the Stoya hasn't yet sold the 500 units with the free DVD. On top of that, none of the bundles have free shipping!
Another thing, I don't need lube, cleaning products or DVDs from ILF. If you want to sell those bundles, fine, great even, but son't make them the centerpiece of a BF sale. All of the lubricants sold here can be found cheaper in bulk elsewhere, ditto for the cleaning products. The DVD prices are a joke, when I can go to other sites and get them for pennies on the dollar. What I need from ILF is that which others cannot provide--FLESHLIGHTS.
I have wanted a Nina Hartley sleeve for a long time, and I will keep wanting one. I tried to buy her mini-lotus, which is finally discounted, but the shipping killed the deal--over $70 for one toy. I could have gotten a Nina Hartley Cougar or Lotus from AdultDVDEmpire for $59.49 shipped during their 30% off sale on sex toys for BF. It's kind of pathetic when a web site that sells your items for a premium price, can discount those products to make them cheaper on Black Friday weekend than they are from the manufacturer.
When other companies are offering free shipping, and discounts of 30%, 50% or even 70% off, it is really disappointing that ILF simply doesn't measure up. Next year, I want to see FLG toys with cases for $49.95 shipped. I want to see Pink Lady or STU sleeves for $10 with any order, or a free bottle of lube. I want to see the first 100 orders get a free sleeve. These are the kinds of deals that we should be seeing on Black Friday. Not 25% off and a shipping charge
