What is Massdrop?
Massdrop is a group buy website that helps you get a large discount on popular items. Once enough interest is shown in an item or group of items they go to the company and negotiate a group buy discount. As more and more people sign up to participate in the “drop” the price goes down! Each drop is open for a certain number of days before they close it and place the order for the items. Then you receive your discounted item in the mail, usually with free shipping!
What sorts of crafting items do they offer?
Recently completed drops include: Aurifil thread kits, Designer fabric collections, Quilter’s Dream Batting, rotary cutters, Tula Pink ribbon, Oliso irons, and Moda precuts. They add new crafting items every week!
I have an idea for a group buy! How do I tell them about it?
Create a poll then you can share your poll with your friends by tweeting or posting the link on Facebook. Once it gets enough votes the folks over at Massdrop look into making it a new drop! You can also check on active polls to see if someone has already created a poll similar to your idea so you can vote on it.
Upcoming deals: Alison Glass Thread and Fabric Sets!
Massdrop will be offering the Alison Glass Aurifil thread set and Field Day fabric bundles starting July 20th! By creating an account you will receive regular e-mails letting you know about new deals so you don’t have to check the site all the time. Once the Allison Glass deals go live you’ll have until July 27th to commit to buy.
Giveaway open to US/Domestic residents. Ends on 7/23/14 at 12:00AM EST. Good luck!
