. . . if you buy the day before a 10% off sale starts. All sales must start and end sometime. Our agreement with consignors doesn't allow me to give you a discount on a purchase you placed before the sale. If I give you the discount late, I loose my consignment
fee and still
have to pay the credit card fees and other costs. I lose money
. . . if you wait until the sale and someone else buys it first. The beginning of every sale is a frenzy of buying
. If you really, really wanted it, you should have bought it before the sale.
. . . if you put a coin in your cart and by the time you checkout someone else has purchased it. Putting a coin in your cart does not reserve the coin. Placing the order reserves the coin. Shipping it marks it sold.
