Looks like the scalpers are working hard.
McDonald’s will launch the BT21 Ceramic Set to the public on 4th May. This was
announced on Facebook on 1 May.
Surprisingly, this set was already being hawked at Carousell 3 days before the
official launch. The initial price was $79 and has since been reduced to $69.
The set is selling for $19.90, which is a whopping 200% more than the original
While that itself is jaw-dropping, the fact that it was advertised for sale 3
days before launch and using unreleased McDonald’s photos is a red flag. Since
this set was only launched in Singapore, only McDonald’s Staff would be privy
to the information.
Would this be a case of staff trying to take advantage of the launch, a ‘friend of a friend ‘ kind of arrangement, or a leak in the news? In any case, McDonald’s
should take a look at this and see if there is any intended profiteering by
its own staff.
In any case, the set is officially going for $19.90 at McDonald’s outlets.
Don’t feed the scalpers!
