You may or may not have read my previous post, (here!), about working with Cooper and Hill on their #CrowdDesign concept. Simple overview, using the crowd design you can help to create a new product that will then be available to purchase on their website!Cooper and Hill are now introducing a new concept which will help to drive down the price of your favourite products on the site! This is called Crowd & Co and is collective purchasing.
When I first read about collective purchasing and Crowd & Co I thought it meant you and a certain amount of your friends and family had to purchase the same product to get a discount. I was wrong! What happens with Crowd & Co is if you like a product and would like to buy it, you register your interest on the site. Then the more people to like a product the more the price goes down so in effect you could get a purse or bag that normally retails for £125 for just £32, so a massive saving of £93, which personally I think it pretty freaking awesome!
One of the best parts about this is even if you do register your interest but decide the price is too expensive or you have now found a different product you want to buy you are under no obligation to purchase the product you originally registered an interest in! I have included a couple of the products that are currently available in the Crowd & Co line but there are a lot more, from purses to messengers bags to tote bags, there is a choice for everyone. I really love the idea of this new way of purchasing products for a few reasons but mainly because I really do love a lot of the products on the site and also I love finding a good bargain like most people. You can read more about the Crowd & Co on Cooper and Hill’s website here.
Alongside Crowd & Co, as mentioned earlier, you can help to create a new bag for the site with #CrowdDesign, design your own bespoke bag to purchase and there is currently a competition running where you can win a free bespoke bag that you design! All you have to do is follow Cooper & Hill on Twitter, plus a few other bloggers (myself included!), and as it is a rafflecopter competition the more people you follow means the more chances to win. So all you have to do is follow a few people to win a free bespoke bag, it is painless to do and the prize is amazing…I may have entered myself!Check out the competition here.
