Micro-distributor StarterKit perk gives opportunities for a group buy for even less than the initial early-bird perk

My referral link (I am a bit short on referrals, actually exactly one)

Edit by dac: Chemist should be full now, as I referred one friend to his link... After chemists refs are filled up by anyone using the link above (chemist, do you have all your refs now?), I can also still use some referral :-) free tablet will go for app development if achieved. (I'll immediately take the following link down when it is complete, roughly 2 refs missing, I guess it is too late to achieve it though...): Get 20 Jolla Tablets with ~30% discount from expected retail price and start distributing them in your own market. You’ll get world-class online marketing materials directly from the Jolla crew. This is your chance to become a local ambassador for the Jolla Tablet and other Jolla products!

Seems not enough people interested, time is running out guys!

You are trying to game the system. That discount is meant for a distributor.

That is the idea!

@chemist Yeah, exactly! I don't really see any meaningful difference between a group buy and being a distributor.

MartinK ( 2014-11-29 17:49:45 +0300 )edit

exactly ... distributors don't pay Jolla for the tablets twice - once to buy them and then a commission on top of it. either they buy them from Jolla and keep the money, or they sell them on behalf of Jolla and keep a commission, not both.

Nice Idea!

You already can choose this perk ... at the bottom of the perk-list :)

i know you can already select it, but this thread is about finding people with whom you can buy it together, i don't know what i should do with 20 tablets...

I could be tempted. How were you going to organize the purchase and distribution among the group?

Pistol ( 2014-12-09 12:22:26 +0300 )edit

Well, I guess someone of us has to take the perk. I'd assume that the money needs to be collected from everyone, and then in May the tablets need to be distributed... Picked up or sent via dhl or similar. We are 3-4 people. But it seems that interest is low, obviously... We need to be 20. and less than 24 hours to go...

dac ( 2014-12-09 12:44:36 +0300 )edit

Mh, okay then.

I guess with more takers this may have worked. But in the end, you have to take a risk and go through all the hassle for a discount of ~30€ on a device you won't even get for half a year or more. Meh...

Also, I am not sure how this would affect the warranty? Double meh...

Pistol ( 2014-12-09 13:09:47 +0300 )edit

just to make it clear, we are 3-4 people plus the ones up there mentioned in the question plus whoever wants to join. But I guess it is too close call...

dac ( 2014-12-09 13:47:32 +0300 )edit

In the question I see "Germany 1". Plus "3-4". Plus me.

That makes 5-6. I stand by my previous statement of "meh".

Still biting my nails whether to get in on the regular perk, though... Especially since I can't see Jolla meeting the target price of $249 for those rather high end specs. I have a feeling it may be more than that in the end.
