Best bang for our buck with turbo pack during the upcoming holidays?

For those of you who have purchased the turbo pack around the holidays, in your opinion, when is the best time to use the turbo pack in order to get the best bang for our bucks?

I feel like my bucks would get lost around black Friday because from the past, no matter what site I was on, I feel like I remember people are mostly concentrating at the big box stores…

Bonanza support, do you have a suggestion on this based on Bonanza stats from the past (would be very helpful, please).

Hi Sharon!

We’re happy to hear that you’re looking to gear up for the holidays :) Unfortunately, we don’t have access to stats from past years regarding sales here in support, so we’re unable to comment on when the best times to purchase Turbo Traffic.

We’re hoping some other sellers can help shed some light on when they received the best results from Turbo Traffic around the holidays!

Thank you, Jon. I appreciate the post :)


For me, Turbo Traffic hasn’t really done a thing for my booth no matter how many packs I have purchased. I get 7 days of Turbo Traffic around the end of the month included with my membership and my stats are less than 30 Turbo Traffic views on any given day.

I honestly have no idea how to get more out of Turbo Traffic and would love to know the answer. It seems like a waste to me as a seller. I have experimented with changing levels and that also had no more views from doing so. I would love to hear suggestions from Bonanza and other sellers chime in.

Looks like no one else is going to chime in unfortunately (still hopeful though). I raised my advertising percentage from 9 to 13% through the rest of the holidays. We shall see. So far things are not looking too good. Hope everyone else is doing better.

I raised my advertising percentage to 13% also. Right now I am feeling a bit snitty because I have seen 3 TV ads for ebay, OfferUp and close5 in the last 24 hours and nothing from Bonanza.

abigdogmom, I’vve done two turbo packs. The first one was decent at the beginning of summer. At that time I was set up for 13%. The second one I did about 3 weeks ago at 9%. That one was a almost a flatline in sales. So I’m thinking 13% might be the way to go with a turbo pack. I’m just not sure…

when to use the turbo pack for the season. I’m also nervous though to keep investing money into Bonanza for not much sales in return.

abigdogmom says: November 15, 2017

I know what you mean. If you promote everywhere, add new items and network to no avail, it’s hard to justify investing money you don’t really have.

Yes, because time is definitely money :)
