    Hmmm... that's a good point.

    Too true, I didn't notice that post before I posted...it would end up being like a 5 dollar discount which isn't worth it...

    unfortunately I have to agree with Narwhalin. By the time Neo has to pay shipping to each person (and they pay him back) the price is back up to the regular price or close to it.

    I also see Tom's side of it since it will cost him more to mail out 15 tarps to different addresses than to one

    But what if we could all order separately from Tom but put a group code in to get the group discount. His shipping is free anyway. It would be like getting 19 separate orders with the group discount. Does that make sense?

    So what's the verdict? Any more word on this, Neo? It seem like by the time we pay s&h to Neo, there would really be not much of a savings. Not to mention by all ordering ourselves, it wouldn't really be a group buy, would it?


    oops, NCPatrick had a good idea and posted while I was typing. I don't know if there is any way to accomodate this without input from Tom.

    It would be a buy by a group. I guess it's semantics.

    Based on the reports on the quality of the tarps, I will order 2 even if I only save a few bucks. I need one to use with the DD hammock that is coming.

    I guess what I am saying is the price point for the product is good with out the discount. The SG with shipping is close to the Claytor tarp price and I understand it is a much better tarp.


    Just my opinion.

    I fully understand Tom's situation. Lumping all the tarps together and shipping once allows him to bring the price down. If he has to ship them individually, he pays shipping every time. At $40 apiece shipped, there's no way he has a very large profit margin as it is. I can fully see $30 apiece shipped means he loses money on each tarp.

    As nice of an offer as this would be from Tom, I would assume to just pay the $2-3 dollars extra and not have Neo be bothered with reshipping everything.

    There has got to be an easier way to set up group buys.

    Tom gets full brownie point/goodwill credit for being willing to give a group discount. Not his fault if we can't find a way to take advantage of the offer. <shrug>

    I wonder how many folks that want the tarp will be at the MAHHA. They could be given out at the event.
