    Costco Down Jacket Group Buy.

    Costco Down Jacket group buy...

    update: I just went to the store and found out that there are actually 13 Jackets in total, all in XL size. All slate green. The manager took an additional $2 off the price if I buy all 13, so It will be a $38 grand total shipped to your door.

    I will add a spreadsheet or checklist to keep up with who has claimed, paid, etc. It should be fairly easy to keep up with. If we do not get 13 orders, I will still keep the price at $38 and it will be a late Christmas present from my family to you.

    If you claim, please pay by the next day, so I can expedite this and ship as soon as possible. If you do not pay by the next day, I will try to contact you and see what is up before removing your claim. I hope that this all goes smoothly and that some folks have the magical experience like the first time I wore a down jacket.

    They are 800 fill goose down and weigh around 11oz.


    The color is Slate Green. Size XL

    Here is a BPL link that gives some photos and information:
    http://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/68095/



    Here is the cost breakdown:

    Jacket: $28 plus 8% tax which is $2.40
    shipping is:

    $5.90
    Priority Mail™
    Legal Flat Rate Envelope
    15" x 9-1/2"

    $1.46 paypal fees (Pay Pal payment is required)

    $.24 charge for incidentals/gas/labels/etc according to HF rules.. (Rules say I can charge up to 50 cents...i just used .24 to make an even total)


    So the grand total is

    $38.00 even

    I will buy all that they have and send them out. Orders will be taken and they will be first come first serve. Like I said they said they have 13 left and I will buy all they have. If any of the 13 are sold when I go to pick them up, last person ordering will not receive a jacket but their funds will be refunded via Pay Pal.


    This is my first group buy, so bear with me. If I did something wrong, just give me a holla. I am bad at math, so I would appreciate it...

    just post here with: "I will take one" and you are in line.

    Thanks!
