SALE ENDS Saturday, June 28 at 11:59PM Eastern time

Surplus Shed is having a VIP membership sale. Instead of $50/year, you can get the membership for $15/year..

  • Free shipping twice monthly (contiguous USA only)
  • Ten percent discount on all purchases
  • Periodic exclusive specials
  • Expedited order processing
  • Advance notice of "New This Week" items with reservation privilege
  • First look at new products being developed such as our Wollensak FluxOptic
  • We'll listen to your product ideas and if you have a prototype for an optical product, we may be able to help get it into production.

Emphasis mine. I reordered their list in terms of what I think are more important.

At the normal price I wouldn't bother because I don't spend more than ~$500 a year at SS to make that 10% worthwhile. However, at $15 it means that if you order something more than 3x times per year it's worth getting this. The free shipping (2x per month) also means you can just buy one of their lenses or mirrors on a whim, without waiting to consolidate your order. You also get that 10% off which is nice; it also stacks with their sales.

I got this mostly for the free shipping twice each month. I usually will order at least three times a year during the sales @ $6/order in shipping. This $15 sale will pay for that.

The 10% discount isn't much though and I definitely wait for those sales. The 2x shipping per month will be nice for really small orders of a single lens or a multi-turn pot, or something like that too.

I just did.

They said they did sent notice, and shipped on the 24th. I'm sure I never got notice, and I usaully get stuff from PA withing 4 days. I guess I'll wait longer, but I hope they have tracking numbers if it doesn't show. Has anyone got tracking numbers on 1st class shipments from them?
