Only on Wednesdays

Always Wednesday

Translation: Your voucher code: … This voucher is until Wednesday: …

Thanks for the high number of vouchers recently, CDWOW – on top of your prices being quite good already. However, you should work on your mail templates, because (1) there’s a verb missing and (2) none of these days are Wednesdays…

(CDWOW mails Dec/Jan 08/09)


But there actually is some variety:

Only 8 hours! From 1pm to 7pm!

Translation: For only 8 hours 2€ discount on everything at CDWOW – only from 13-19h (1pm–7pm), click here

Now I don’t mind your time-limited discount campaigns at all, dear CDWOW, but you should be a little more careful when creating and advertising them. How long does this campaign actually last?

    Ich finde grundsätzlich beschränkte Aktionen voll bescheuert, weil ich nicht zu deren Zeiten da sein kann. Meist jedenfalls nicht.

      Ja, die sollten da etwas variieren oder gleich 24h laufen lassen – andererseits dürften nur die wenigsten wirklich so oft bestellen wollen, wie CDWOW Aktionen bringt (oder zumindest in den letzten paar Monaten brachte).

All inputs are optional. The e-mail address won't be published nor shared.

  • Moderation: Comments from first-time commentators must be approved manually before they appear.
  • Behave yourself! No insults, no illegal content, etc.! Should go without saying, don't you agree...?
  • Website: I don't mind blogs with ads, but purely commercial links are not welcome and will be deleted. Just like pure spam comments.
  • E-mail notification on new comments: You will have to activate this function once with a link in an automatically sent confirmation mail. These notifications can be disabled again with the link in every mail, of course.
  • Twitter: If you got a Twitter account, you can enter your Twitter name (with or without the @, doesn't matter) which will then be displayed next to any comment (including old ones) that contain the same e-mail address. (Which also means that you must fill in that e-mail field.)
