The Weirdest Sale I've EVER Had on Ebay
I just returned home yesterday from a few days visiting family to find a large box delivered by Fed Ex from a company called Liquid Gold. I figured it had to be something I ordered since I recently ordered packing supplies. This morning I went to open the box and started realizing I'd already received all of the packing supplies I ordered…so what could this be? The box contained two gift wrapped packages..someone sent me a gift? I could find no card. The mystery grew deeper. The first package I opened contained a box of mac and cheese, then there was an apron and one more package. I opened the last package and was totally thrown to see it was an ebay package that I had sent out and was now receiving back? Hunh? At this point I was totally confused. I opened the package up to discover the Revere Ware pan I had sold a few months back with a note attached. Still confused (I'm slow to catch on and it's still technically morning so)…I tried to look at who I'd sold it to thinking it never arrived but the sale was too old and I couldn't look it up. Then I started googling. Pretty quickly I found these very funny commercials (and this one) and a Facebook page (see the comments on the top right) . Apparently it's a very clever (I think) promotion by Kraft. Read the note which explains it all. I didn't read the note until I'd actually googled and found out what was going on. Yes, I'm one of those people who doesn't read instructions when putting something together...
Cool! So in essence I sold the pan and get to sell it again and got a free box of dinner and an apron and a topic for a blog post! Sure did put my brain to work this morning. Heh. This is hands down the weirdest sale I have EVER had on ebay. EVER. Can anyone top it? What is the weirdest sale you have ever had? Had you heard of this promotion?
