Pink magic price drop-your voices have been heard!

  1. Anyways, keep the cost coming down and I might replace DTH with PM some day. Just to try it. But for now DTH is king of this man's hill and has knocked it off yet.

    No, the market reacted to GNC's MSRP pre order price. I can't set price to the public that is against the law.

    I sold PM to retailers month ago...

  4. Agreed. I would also like to say that for those of us that didn't want to spend a lot of money on a supplement purchase and didn't need the items that were in the combo deal section, the PM ONLY deal was not that great. It's almost like that old trick to get you in to the door with a free prize and you exit having spent more on items that are viewed to be, "a reward for loyalty." But hey, it's a business, so more power to them.

    Edit: I purchased the PM only option and if loyal customers are treated so well (I’ve spent a ton of money over the years on IC releases), why couldn’t they at minimum throw in some free samples? It’s a good point, in my opinion. So to me, loyalty equals filling their pockets for the more expensive packages.

    Because a consumer may fill in an email and name I dont know why they would get such a large discount but for the other consumers the price seems to be high because of the raw materials?

    Im not trying to knock at USP or whatever so I hope people dont take this wrong, but just trying to see the logic in the pricing with the whole IC deal stuff. Cheers guys

    We can't please everyone.....In terms of feedback it was the most successful IC release to date.

    Feedback noted.

  6. Im not complaining thats for sure.

  7. The biggest thing is that you are not forced to buy the product.

    If you like the brand, you have a good history, maybe its worth it to you. If its a crap product they will lose loyal customers by making them feel ripped off and cheating them. If its a great product, their customers will understand the price tag.

    So its got risks to them as well.

    I wont pay it, but it doesnt mean it does not have its place.

    Its not uncommon to people post cycle to continue to make gains slowly into their PCT, but seeing as even for a 2 week period if im not wrong, you mentioned in the log you used Sustain Alpha LV, Clomid, Supress-C...

    With using PM, post cycle, along with 3 other things...How can somebody judge accurately wether PM even worked or not, or if it did do 'something' ... what exactly did it do, and how effective was it?

    This is not towards you personally but I hope this makes sense?

    Keeping my roots real...

    Did we sacrifice margins, hell yes we did and just about broke even but at the end, it will make us a stronger brand.
    Thanks for the reply/clarification

  10. Damnt, I may shell out 60 buck on PM, I really hope its the best thing since NSYNC lol..

    Haha u read a lot into my statement didnt u. While I agree with all of this. My situation was unique because Idk how the hell I was even picked to log PM. If u go back through the thread u will see I never put in an application

    If it makes any difference to people I picked up option 3 and plan on running PM with Prime as a bridge between cycles at some point or another in the future.

  12. Two bottles for $70 and I'd be all over it like stink on a monkey, much like everyone else I'm guessing *nudge nudge, wink wink*

    Otherwise......WAY to much for Herbs.

    Thanks for not taking what I said the wrong way, wasn't trying to knock you for your log. Kudos to you for just that

    Looks like during your pct phase you had some good progress that you were pleased with. Nice.

    You can get 2 bottles of DTH for that much if you look around... Which is why I can't justify the price for PM. Run DTH at 6 pills a day and you better get a wheelbarrow and a ice cream pale...

    Wheelbarrow and an ice cream pale? There's a joke here, and it's annoying the hell out of me that i dont get it
    A couple of my mates imported DTHC, but didnt get anything from it. But I must admit its always intrigued me.

    But I digress, PM is far to expensive still for majority of us. unfortunately. Because i would like to try it.

  18. Everyone complaining about the price needs to learn simple business. When company A(USP labs or any company) makes a product, they must make a certain profit % on that item for them to even consider selling it. From there, the distributor who buys it and resells it is required to make their profit, and finally a store must buy it and yet again make a certain % profit.

    It's the nature of the beast.

  19. I bought it at nutra lol..

    Absolutely correct! That review had no business there. Only authentic users of a product should be able to post a review on it.

    Hope for the sake of consumers it can come down drastically to a more sensible price in the UK.
    It is hard to use UK prices as a proper gauge. They are usually considerably higher than the US ones, even after adjusting for shipping, import taxes, and a small profit margin.

Larger distributers will not pick up product x if they will not make money on it.
    I already covered that class...

    Like the beta testers that did not purchase the product? No. Censorship at its finest.

    I'd hate to imagine what the Australian supplement stores are going to try to flog this off for.... They were still selling Jack3d for around 90-100 bucks a tub when our dollar was almost equal with the US.

    I do agree that it's rather misleading. U shouldn't be able to post reviews on NP unless u purchased the product from the NP site.

    We respect your opinion but the above will never happen with PM.

    We don't even have enough for the current demand and that will be the issue with PM for at least a year or maybe 2....selling PM will never be the issue but trying to keep up with the demand.

    The are extracting specifically and we need a boat load of herb to produce a small amount of extracts.

    I could sell you the crude herb for $70 all day long....

    Removing a comment by an individual that did not use a product from a product review section has nothing to do with true censorship. It assures correctness and fairness. Potential buyers that want to base their purchase decisions on published reviews should be able to go through genuine reviews, positive or negative, before making their choices. Fake reviews (reviews by individuals that never used the product in question), whether positive or negative, are not only unfair to genuine reviewers (those that actually used the product before posting their comments), but will also ultimately mislead potential buyers. This is contrary to the intended purpose of product reviews. Hence, this is why fake reviews should be removed, and this is also why this removal is not censorship in the classical sense.

    Now to beta testers. If you review the logs of beta testers, you should observe that Pink Magic (in its weaker beta version compared to the current version) received a resounding vote of approval. As is usual in beta-testing situations, beta testers are not obliged to buy the final product. This was not different in the case of Pink Magic. Yet, I do not know of many beta testers that were Inner-Circle members, received the Inner Circle Pink Magic e-mail, had funds at the time, and did not buy Pink Magic. If any beta tester did not buy Pink Magic, it was certainly not because he did not like the beta product.

    I suppose you read it to comment on it?

    If you read it and you believe that was censorship, you are just picking a fight on a forum.

    Did you read it?

    It wasn't even a review on the product.....he is just being silly.
