1-day Plans Biggest Ever Bag of Crap Sale

1-day Plans Biggest Ever Bag of Crap Sale

25 March 2014

For 24 hours from noon today, Tuesday 25 March, 1-day’s super famous $9 Bag of Crap Sale goes live and will be bigger and more ‘pungent’ than ever before.

Similar to a lucky dip, Bag of Crap is a 24 hour online sale whereby consumers pay $9 (plus freight) in return for a randomly selected mystery bag, which has a minimum value of $9 and a maximum value of $999.

Consumers can choose their Crap category: Men’s, Women’s or Random, but aside from that, there’s no knowing what will be inside- you might ‘miss out’ and receive a 2kg pack of gummi lollies or hit the big time and walk away with an Apple iPad or iPhone.

Aaron Greene, Chief Operating Officer for Torpedo7 Group, which owns the daily deals shopping website ‘1-day’, says there’s a huge variety of great products available in this year’s annual Bag of Crap Sale, ranging in value from lollies and make up to high-end digital cameras and mobile phones.

“For 24 hours only, customers have the chance to score anything from a head lamp right through to top end randomly generated items, like GoPros, G-Shock watches and much more.

“The combination of an advanced e-commerce platform with an extensive range of leading brands at eye-wateringly low prices, means this year’s Bag of Crap Sale will be bigger and better than ever before,” says Mr Greene.

Launching in 2007 by Torpedo7 founder Luke Howard-Willis, 1-day began as a way of selling great products and brands at super low prices that didn’t quite fit into the action sports category that Torpedo7 caters to.

From humble beginnings, 1-day has progressed to become one of the country’s largest online shopping sites and the ever-popular Bag of Crap Sale, which debuted in 2007, has seen more than quarter of a million Bags of Crap delivered to customers.

The 2014 annual Bag of Crap Sale goes live at 12noon on Tuesday 25 March until 12noon on Wednesday 26 March at www.1-day.co.nz
