(Formerly known as CodyandKris' Packs)
Some of you guys reading this know just how far we've come and it truly is amazing. Never would we have thought we'd be building a website and quitting our day jobs a few years later.For those of you who aren't familiar with our story, I'll give you a rundown.
For the rest of this article ill be referring to 'Cody' when I say 'I'.
So I was watching the Superbowl in 2014 at my girlfriend, Kristalins, families house.
You know all the crazy commercials they show and whatnot? Well one of them happened to be for an up and coming game called Game of War. I'm sure most of you have heard of that.. They kinda pioneered mobile gaming if you ask me.
Well, needless to say, I downloaded it. And man, did I get hooked. Many A' argument did it cause between me and my girlfriend Kristalin, whom I mentioned earlier, because that's literally all I would be doing at all times.
Truth be told, It would have cause WAYYY BIGGER arguments if she knew half of what I was spending on that game. I'm sure a lot of you guys out there can relate. >.>
It was crrrazzzy how expensive this game was, but somehow you manage to talk yourself into spending, or at least I did.. So I began looking for a cheaper way to see if it was possible to stop breaking the bank so badly. I was convinced it wasn't possible after some searching.
I FOUND A PACK LOADER!
One day in alliance chat, some of the bigger players were talking about how they were getting cheaper purchases through a 'pack loader'.
I was skeptical at first, but I eventually gave in. I was introduced to a guy named Agent0. Everything went smooth. And I was paying 3/4 the price each time!
My entrepreneurial mindset wouldn't let me rest though. I knew this guy had to be getting some sort of cut somewhere even giving me the discounts he was.
It was time to start digging again..
So I found amazon coins and realized that if I bought in bulk I could actually get them for around the same price Agent0 was getting them for.. I actually started telling my friends in my alliance that I could but packs for them if they needed.. Since amazon coins was only available on android and it was so expensive to get the discount, I figured i'd help out the guys. I was making no profit at this time other than the cash back i got on my credit card for buying so many coins.
Over time I was loading for nearly my entire Game of War alliance..
KRISTALIN IS RECRUITED
I started off with a beaten up, broken screen, falling apart galaxy S4.. Thats all I had. capacity of 10x $99 packs a day. Then It got to the point where I was on that phone most of my days off not even able to actually play the game anymore. Kristalin starts seeing the cash back on the credit cards build up and offers to help! We are now a team and shes beginning to see that my fondness for gaming isn't so bad afterall. ;)
FAST FORWARD 2 YEARS
A very rough but fun ride the past 2 years have been.. Constantly having to change the way we do things to stay on top. But through all the trials we have definitely strengthened and so has our business. We now load for any and all mobile games and our capacity has skyrocketed.
Customers snowballed by word of mouth and here we are.
We've both quit our bartending jobs and work full time buying packs for people... and the best part is that we were able to stay home with our 2 kids that have come since we started the journey. We are blessed to have such an amazing job and to be able to work with our friends every day.
Thanks all for reading and we're looking forward to working with you for many years to come.
-Cody & Kristalin, your loaders.
