I like the all black borders as well. That is always a cool look.

Meant to post something earlier in the day - but had to deal with a shut off valve for the water line to fridge's ice maker. As I turned the spigot on the valve to the 'off' position, it decided to sheer off instead shut off. I had to make a mad dash to the main line to shut the water off and then multiple trips to the hardware store after that. Still more work to do to fix it completely.

Anyways.

I propose the next payment to cover a single week of cards, just next week.
And after that, we'll step up to payments to cover 2 full weeks at a time.
Shipping will still be done after this first 2 week increment of cards has arrived.

I also believe it's good to add some buffer in the payment, to alleviate concerns (of my own and others) of running short before the week is done.
So instead of pre-paying for 6 cards, I'd like to go with 8.

I spent some time at the post office this morning, weighing different configurations of packages, and found a configuration that didn't change anyone's postage (except for Zen), even though there are more cards.

I'll send PM's to everyone with the details, but expect essentially a request of $32 for each 8 card group. There are exceptions with a few folks, so wait for the PM.

Thanks again for all your efforts!  And, I hope your fridge problem worked out OK.

All okay now.  :great:
And in the process, I learned how to become an amateur plumber! Saved a bundle not having to call in a pro over the weekend at emergency rates to fix some pipes. And as a bonus, I now own some new tools to boot - like a propane torch!

I expect we'll see 1 or more Wackys tomorrow

I have hard water(lots o minerals) so all of the old fashioned shut offs pretty much are useless as they get stuck in place, don't shut off the water completely or break when you turn them and start leaking.  I just hired a local handyman who is great with plumbing to replace the shut off valve for all water feeds to my sinks and toilets and to the outside the house water feeds with current ball valves(14 total replacements).  Through the process, found out three of them were on the verge of leaking and wouldn't turn at all.
Contact me at bandaches@yahoo.com as I have tons of wackys for sale!

Patrick, so how are we doing?  Are we still covered or will we need another installment this weekend?

Doing very well. Everyone has a balance for 4 more cards. Which is surprising after last week's 6 card onslaught.
I think we can now get back to the original idea of working in 2 week increments.
My estimate would be for us to cover 12 cards for the next 2 weeks.
Subtracting out the 4 in reserve, that would mean a payment this weekend for 8 more, plus the next postage charge too.
Then there shouldn't be another payment until later in February.

Does 12 sound like a good number for everyone?

at the moment we're right at the 20 card buy level. But possible, if a spot opens up.

a spot has opened up for you. Check your PMs for info.

Impressive work, guys.  I'm not a part of the bulk buyers club but I am inspired by this.  It's great to see the forum community working together and helping each other out.  This is pretty cool, and amazing to see how much you've already saved.  I mean, geez.. you've only just started!!  Kudos to this.

Patrick / Fanatical_and_Sickly,

Can I assume the Bulk Buyers Club is purchasing these three cards today?  They look like WP, although they don't state so.  On the "24 Hours" thread, SlamJim refers to them as WP.

If not, I'll be spending $30 tonight.  On another note,  I feel no qualms at all about spending $10 on Bowie.  The card is very well rendered, and I'm glad to see the Thin White Duke made it into the WP pantheon.







Can't seem to get the 3rd image to load.

Good heads up

The Shammys 2017 are another "Event" set - which are offered for a week, and do *not* have a bulk discount. Same as we've seen with the earlier Inauguration, Christmas, etc. We'll probably see them again for other Holidays and Events (e.g. Oscars)

Since there is no bulk discount, these are NOT part of the Buyer's Club.
 Everyone is on their own with these cards.
