    CLOSED: Cinch Buckle Group Buy

    Anybody interested in getting a small group buy together for the cinch buckles from OnRope1?
    http://www.onrope1.com/store/index.p...d=118&parent=4

    It looks like the shipping is the same whether you buy 5 or 50 so it might be worth it. Also, we could look into whether they would give us a quantity discount.

    Any takers?

    ---UPDATE:
    The group buy is now a direct buy with a nice discount on shipping.

    OnRope1 will accept orders with a minimum of 4 cinch buckles and will ship them out via Priority Mail for $5 S/H (as long as it's under 1 lb).

    Mention Hammock Forums in the gift comment section of the order form and you should be all set. That is also where you should mention that you only want 4 since the website won't allow you to order less than 5.

    They will email a final invoice when they ship your order so don't worry when it looks like you're getting charged more for UPS Ground.

    For anybody interested, it looks like shipping for a small quantity (2-4) would be around $3 by first class mail and larger quantities would be $4 or $5.

    Final cost for each buckle would depend on the total quantity ordered and any discount from OnRope1. I'd hope that an order of 4 would come in under $17 (incl. shipping) which would be more than $4 less than the OnRope1 price for that quantity shipped.

    If you're interested, PM me with the number you would want. I'll get cost info and confirm that you're in so there's no commitment until I get you some hard numbers.

    You should set up a separate group buy thread for this. A separate thread would get more attention.

    Thanks for that. I wasn't sure of the etiquette for starting a group buy thread. I appreciate your help.

    Link the item you were referring to. I went to their site and saw a lot of cinch buckles. Maybe I'm just confused as to which one you are talking about.

    Unless you got a pretty good discount on quantity, a group buy at normal price or even with a slight discount usually doesn't save buyers any money buy the time you take into account the shipping charges to reship the items to each person and PayPal fees.

    I added the link to the first post to prevent further confusion. Originally, it was part of the Cinch Buckle thread and the link was superfluous.

    You might be right but the shipping for even an order of 4 buckles is $10 from OnRope1 so there could be a chance to save everybody some money. We'll see what response I get from them.
