    CLOSED: Poll: Jacket group buy

    Just get an idea of how many are ok with the extra $9 to get the Jackets.

    I can tell you this, with my 3, and those that have contacted me, we have at least 7 jackets, just need 8 more.

    I voted no but I would still be willing to get a jacket if it means meeting a minimum order.

    I will stay in if needed to make minimum order size. otherwise out. not a big deal, but it seems to me the company ought to cut Iafte some slack considering all he has done to promote their product to HF.

    I voted yes, but would be willing to forgo the jacket to make a point with the company. I just don't want Iafte to get stuck with anything, since he's done so much to make this happen already.

    I voted no but would be willing to get one if the group votes yes. I do agree with all that has been said so far. And no matter how this buy turns out I would like to thank Iafte for all he has done to try and make this happen.

    I voted no. In my opinion, it's a cheese **** way for that company to do business.

    I talked to a rep today, seams it was a mistake because the stiching products are not suppose to get any discount even for bulk orders due to the added costs associated with the process. Since they had a discount up, they are making an exception and having the discount that is up now only for two months then it's going back to no discount.

    At $14, they were loosing money on the jackets, without counting the cost of the stiching. I priced around over the weekend and the cheepest I could find was $27 a jacket PLUS $100 setup fee with a 50 jacket minimum. So it's still a good deal, just not an amazing one like we thought.
