WaterLily recently announced they were taking preorders for their new 12V generator turbines. This new model is listed $249 but early orders are $199 without coupon. WaterLily has previously provided a 20% off holiday coupon for the 5V model but you will only be able to use a single coupon on 12V model at full price (so $199 after coupon vs $199 before coupon).
- Discount: The 12V is listed at $249 but selling for $199 without coupon code for preorders
- Coupon: Shopify makes it easy to send out abandoned cart/checkout emails. An additional 15% off is available as a win-back coupon to complete the order.
- Payment: Chase Visa with 1 year extended warranty. A better option would have been Citi Double Cash here for 2% back and 2 year extended warranty
Estimated Total: $199.99 – 29.99 (coupon) + 10 (shipping not free) + 11.25 (6.25% taxes to be paid) = $191.25 + payment rewards
Improvements: Another option for payment would be to use a card where you need to complete a spend bonus (such as a new card). AMEX has previously done points bonuses for spend for existing customers. It is unfortunate that the site did not setup Amazon Pay so we can’t collect 5% using the Discover quarterly bonus.
Wait for and use abandoned cart emails
Don’t preorder unless the deal is likely unreproducible
Use a credit card if purchase protection or warranty is important
