OmieBox by Grouphunt

Together is better than alone. A quote highly applicable and true when it comes to shopping! When buyers come together with a big quantity of purchase, there is power in negotiation. Buyers pay lesser and sellers make more sales. It is a win-win for both. 

It will never be alone when you need buying power. Gathering interests and buyers can be done through Grouphunt. Grouphunt is Singapore's largest group buying platform for enthusiasts. Everyday, the community comes together to discover, discuss and buy the latest products with the belief that buying together is better than buying alone. Every product within is suggested, created and chosen by their enthusiast communities. A browse through it and you will know that they are some interesting and cool products around. Not the usual ones you see in our local shelves.

It has a simple mechanism. If you have a product that you love and would like to hunt it below the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), you may start and share the hunt with friends who are high likely to support that product too. Once that product reaches 25 requests, the buying team enters negotiations by calling manufacturers to negotiate on behalf of the group.

Once negotiations are complete, the Hunt is made LIVE, and you may make your PURCHASE. Payment is captured immediately so just sit back and wait for the item to arrive. Occasionally, there are also hunts with multiple tiers. More orders equals lower prices for everyone! So get sharing even after you have made your order!

To sum, it really is easy! Simply:
1. start a hunt with your product url
2. Gather interest by sharing with your friends
3. Grouphunt negotiates
4. Deal goes live!

If the live hunt doesn't go through, you get your money back and the hunt goes back interest gathering mode. Don't give up! 

Treasure hunted
Heap Thanks to a parent who had previously started a hunt for OmieBox, that I was able to get hold of one. The hunt is already on its second run and currently collecting pre-orders for the next 2 weeks. Grouphunt would usually order a few extra units to make up for case sizes, or to account for lost shipments, missed payments, or late cancellations. They make these products available to us through the Grouphunt Marketplace. All products found in the Marketplace will have no minimum group size, and will be shipped out the next day. So if you have just missed out on a hunt, or would rather not wait to receive a product, the Marketplace is for you.

OmieBox in Pink!

I was on a search for lunchboxes for Jazz, and a friend showed me an OmieBox, I was sold! I love it and I knew it was something I had been searching for. Js love soupy food and this was perfect to combine both wet and dry food, cold and warm in a single box. Only thing, it is bulky and may not be very ideal for school go. I used it most for Jazz's lunches in the car. Judge me not. I just feel that we are spending too much idling time while joining the car line to exit her school's carpark. It is definitely some good use of time settling lunch in car with home cooked food. 

Pasta again!

The box is working well this far with no leak. The lid is extremely kid friendly and easy to open. Best part Mums love is that the insulated container, which looks like a potential place to breed mold is extremely easy to wash and clean. The connecting parts of it are all removable! It may also be totally removed if you prefer to use the space for food that doesn't need to keep warm. A winning lunchbox, isn't it?!!

So here's a deal on how you can get one. Grouphunt has started live hunt for OmieBox here, where all lovely readers will be given a $5 credit upon sign up via the same link. The box is running live and taking in orders (for 2 weeks) at $62.90. After the $5 credit, you may get hold of it at $57.90. It gets auto deducted upon payment. You are most welcome!

Lovely choice of colours! Image credit: Grouphunt

Plonk in your order now! And get more friends who genuinely want this lunchbox to plonk in their love too.

Kids' meals just got more exciting!
