    Exclamation SPT-2 prices - Possible Bulk Buy interest?

    Hey all!
    Just getting my feet wet in the art of Blinky (Thanks again, Jack!), and as I'm gathering resources, I'm doing little things like building extension cords, etc. I think I've managed to get my hands on a spool of SPT-2, but I need the connectors for them (male and female)

    So, being the search-engine expert I am, I went looking.
    It appears that www.noveltylights.com has the spt-2 vampires selling for the following prices:

    0-49 pcs: $0.85/ ea
    50-149 pcs: $0.65/ ea
    150+ pcs: $0.55/ ea

    Shipping doesn't appear to be TOO terrible for ground..

    UPS Ground - 1-5 days $8.65
    UPS 3 Day Select - 3 days $15.00
    UPS 2nd Day Air - 2 days $30.00
    UPS Next Day Air - 1 day $42.90

    My first question is:
    Are these decent prices?

    Second question:
    Would there be interest in another bulk buy? (I noticed the last one finished earlier this year) Just throwing an idea out there.

    -Roger

    Hi Roger. Those prices are not too terrible considering we're at the peak time for the market. We find that prices for connectors and wire tend to be at their highest once we get within a couple months of Christmas.

    In the off-season we have found group buys in the range of $57 per 100 pcs of SPT-2 connectors (including shipping). Last month we found some awesome SPT-1 prices of less than $40 including shipping for 100 connectors (males and females) .. Sometimes you have to be willing to take what you get as far as the color goes.

    Keep your eyes peeled here, and also join up with our local TASL (Triangle Area Synchronized Lighting) goup.. and we'll find lots better deals to help you with next year.
    Thanks,

    Denny,
    Did I meet you at the last TASL meeting? I know I'll be there for sure this week along with the boss.
    Meanwhile, I'm just trying to get everything together for this year. Simple, yet effective is my theme this year.

    -Roger

    Simple. Yea, that's becoming my theme, too...

    Denny was there with the star. I was the guy coming in late. Though not as late as Walter!

    Oh, and, ahem... I might be interested in going in with you on those plugs. I need to check my supply and count how many cords I need, too. Will do that within 24 hours... I'll also post a link to this thread in the wire thread to check interest from that group...

    In the interest of getting the price down for a TASL guy, I'll take 50 of each. I don't need them but what the hey. The rest of Yall should order some of these so the price is cheaper.

    I just talked to Brandon @ Novelty Lights. He has several thousand of these connectors left. I'm going to post a poll to gauge interest in a bulk buy!

    Alright folks. Now is the time and next week will be too late. Does a couple people want to split bags? I think we are in the 65 cent range (plus small amount for shipping) heading toward $0.55. How about it Denny, Scott, Don, Jack (and Charity--where's my piece of cake?), and the rest of you large scale users? I volunteered for 50 of each to bring the cost down. Come on I know you want some. Roger is volunteering to host the group buy too. Attaboy Roger.

    Anyone have 250' extra SPT2 wire they can spare. I probably need 500' but my wife is about to pull my plug... Ouch!

    Donnie - when do you need the wire? I think I have too much for myself, but won't know for a few weeks possibly. Additionally, not sure how I'd get it there. Though I will be in Mooresville for Thanksgiving. If I can get some better "actuals" for myself by then, I might be able to hook you up. Literally...

    May as well... I'll take another 50 of each (male and female). Maybe we'll get lucky and get grey ones to match the wire we just got a deal on!

    Well, I was planning on ordering the green ones.. They come in either green or white on their website. I'm gonna give this about one more day to gauge interest, then I'll place an order.
