Now that I have more time to spend with the tank again I'm in the mood to add some new livestock. Anyone want to get our Group-On with a vendor ? Any vendor that has cool stuff is fine with me. Let's discuss !

Hey kien,

I've been talking with March at fragbox. I was gonna grab a few items from him but this would make him even happier! HAha maybe contact him! Put my On the list either way.

kien
11-27-2015, 10:36 PM
Ok cool. I'll check out his site again. I'm open to suggestions for any other vendor as well.

Sounds like we have a decent turn out so far. I'll poke around the various over the weekend to check out their stock. I encourage everyone else to do the same and then we can settle on some suggestions. Who knows maybe we'll be able to hit up multiple vendors !

What's everyone's thought on venders? I PM'd a few of you guys with March's ( fragbox) offer. Incredible has some nice corals also, maybe hit up two venders?

i'm up i'm up! This Group-On will be up for at least a week I think. It looks like there's a lot of interest ! I'd like to give both vendors and buyers time to suss things out. Was hoping everyone would spend the weekend looking over the various vendors to see what they had in stock and then we can start talking about the logistics early this week :-)

I see some fragbox goodness posted yesterday. When do we want to pull the trigger on this?

kien
12-03-2015, 06:59 PM
Ya I was going to bring that up, thanks for reminding us. I'm ready to go whenever you are. Maybe use this week to order with a delivery scheduled for next week or the week after?

Delphinus
12-03-2015, 07:02 PM
I think I'm OK with more or less whatever/whenever. My contribution won't be huge, with my tank rebooted (and still several things to redo on it), I'm only in for maybe 1 or 2 things anyhow, just to try to get some coral life in there to keep me motivated to finish all the redo's. So just let me know da-plan and I shall comply!

(In case you were wondering - yes I have decided to keep my 280g going after all.)

kien
12-03-2015, 07:06 PM
YAY! I was wondering :-). Thought maybe we might see a new build thread but keeping the 280 is just as good :-)

I'm down for fragbox. Incredible seems to have very limited stock. Let's make a decision fellas.

blackradon
12-04-2015, 04:05 PM
I've talked to march and if we go throught him he said he would offer 10% off the site and free shipping. Would have to confirm again since there are more people.

blackradon
12-04-2015, 04:06 PM
Incredible has some super nice acan!! Frick

It sounds like there are a lot of votes for frag box. I'll PM sometime today to ask for specifics (discounts, shipping, etc).

kien
12-05-2015, 06:59 AM
Well, I didn't hear any overwhelming suggestion otherwise, so I guess we are going with fragbox :-) Again, after this one we could always do another vendor :-)

At any rate, I sent March @ fragbox a PM asking him if he could provide details (any discounts, shipping code, etc). Once I get some information from him I'll drop it into this thread.

hfp75
12-05-2015, 07:44 AM
Incredible would have been my first choice. Why don't we see who offers the best discount?

kien
12-05-2015, 08:07 PM
I got word back from March at fragbox and he has provided me with a Group Buy discount code and shipping code.

discount code: canreef
shipping code: kien $0 (for shipping to Calgary obviously)

March will try to upload some new products over the next day or so. We can now talk about when we want to close this group buy. Suggestions? 3 days, 4 days, on week ?

I don't mind receiving the order (this isn't my first rodeo) but some ground rules:

1. Frags must be picked up on the day of deliver.
2. Issues must be reported to fragbox ASAP.
3. See #1 above.

Roskoreef
12-05-2015, 10:56 PM
I'm good for a few days, do we just check out with those codes? Or do we need to specify who's receiving the shipment, etc..? This is my first rodeo...

So I made my order and I was under the impression that we were getting a %10 discount. Is this not the case because I only got a $1.00 discount.

I would PM March (fragbox) and inquire about that.

Baker
12-06-2015, 06:04 AM
Hey Kien, have we decided end date yet. Should we give it until friday?

kien
12-07-2015, 03:40 PM
No we have not decided. I'm fine with running this till Friday. Then shipping early next week. I'll pM March and ask him if shipping early next week works for him.

kien
12-08-2015, 08:48 PM
Looks like some of us have placed our order already (myself included). I think this entire week is probably plenty of time for everyone to get their orders in. Let's close this down at the end of the weekend coming up and aim to ship out on Monday, or Tuesday (December 15th) at the latest.

kien
12-08-2015, 08:50 PM
OH, and by the way, I used the discount code and it worked just fine for me. I was confused at first though. There is a "total" line (at checkout) under the box where you enter the discount code and an update button. When I first clicked the 'update' button I expected that "total" line to change to something less, but that's not how it works. Your discount is applied and displayed further down below at the total line under the shipping options (again don't forget to use the "kien" shipping method; that sounds weird). Hope that helps. And thanks for the discount March!

Ordered today, keep us posted on the date as ill have to take the day off work.. So the sooner we know the better! And seeing as in taking the day off, kien. If you need an hand picking up the order and all that I'll help out with that if you want.

Cool. The order probably won't need to be picked up, they usually ship straight to the door. I'll be working from home that day so that I can be home to receive the order, whatever day we decide on. This also means people are welcome to come pick up their loot any time that day after I've received the package.

blackradon

Ahhh! Well maybe I won't have to take day off then. I thought you had to pick Up the package from the airport..

curious on the shipping price. Will they give us a price after all orders are submitted and then split it up?

kien

Shipping is free if you select "Kien" as your shipping option. :-)

Hey everyone, I have just confirmed with March that he can ship out early next week. In fact, we plan to ship this order on Monday (overnight) with a Tuesday delivery. That means we are closing this Group-On at the end of business day on Sunday December 13th.

Get your orders in !

Just a reminder that yesterday was officially the last day to order for this Group-ON. Unofficially if you still want to place an order get a hold of fragbox.ca (March) and see if you can still sneak an order in today.

Shipping Details
============

Since this order is so massive, March (fragbox) has decided to ship it via Westjet Cargo. This flight will arrive in Calgary around 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday), with the package available for pickup at the airport around 5pm. I will head up to the airport after work to go pick it up and drive it back to my place. Once I have the package everyone is welcome to come by to pick up their loot.

Alternately, if people want to come to the Wesetjet cargo facility at the airport to come grab their stuff that's fine too. It might be a bit chilly though, and if you're not their on time I would rather not wait there for people to show up. Waiting in the comfort of my warm home is more ideal.

If you are on this order, please PM me your contact information (email or cell#) and I will text you when your stuff will be available for pick up.

btuck887
12-14-2015, 04:42 PM
Do you have his contact info? Or you suggest just messaging him from the website?

kien

Send him a PM (fragbox.ca). You could probably email him too. He's good at responding either way.

kien
12-15-2015, 01:42 AM
Hey Everyone, I just spoke to Darsh at Fragbox and he said that our shipment can't go on the originally planned flight (ready at the airport at 5pm), so the shipment is going to be on a slightly earlier flight (ready for pickup at the airport at 3pm), in case this affects anyone. The rest of the plan remains. If you want to pick up your frags in the cold at the airport let me know ahead of time. Otherwise I'll send out the text once I have the package and I'll see everyone tomorrow evening.
