SomethingStore is a fun new website that operates quite simply: We will send you something, selected randomly among many things from our inventory for $10 (free shipping) and you will find out what your something is when you receive it. So, what will yours be?
This is awesome. I ordered “something” today, and will let you know what I get when I get it.
What’s also funny is the page that talks about what you “won’t” get. Stuff like body parts, endangered species, drugs, etc… Good stuff.
So what will I get?
SomethingStore strives to deliver both value and fun with each something. The fact is the merchandise we randomly pick somethings from varies greatly. Depending on your wants and desires, your something may be just the thing you needed or some useless stuff, as it may really be anything. Yes, some items will be more expensive than others in terms of their monetary value, but we believe eventually it’s your perception that will decide what your something is worth.
Can’t wait to find out! If you think about the business model here… It’s pretty easy to see how this could be profitable. You get your hands on some cheap overstock items that are far less in worth than $10.00, then you simply stuff one of them in a box and ship it out. If done correctly, you could make anywhere from $3.00-$8.00 from every order. They pay for shipping so that eats into the cost.
Overall, this is one of those fun, creative ideas I wish I had thought of first. Great work and kudos to their team.
