I got an email telling me I was one of a select few to receive a special Foundry discount. Just wondering if everyone got one, or if I indeed am special.

My mother tells me I'm special.

aecurtis Fezian23 Nov 2009 4:47 a.m. PST

Yep; part of the holiday run-up. I suspect it goes to everyone on the mailing list.


Lowtardog23 Nov 2009 4:53 a.m. PST

Yup still charge postage though so no dice for me

rusty musket23 Nov 2009 5:23 a.m. PST

No, I did not get one. I have in the past but not recently. I guess I am no longer favored.

Tangofan23 Nov 2009 5:57 a.m. PST

I got one and I don't think I've bought anything from Foundry in at least 5 years!!! And I'm apparently a special customer. LOL

nycjadie23 Nov 2009 6:37 a.m. PST

It appears that I am also part of the select few.

Me too! Dunno why I'm 'special' (no, don't try to tell me!) – I don't buy much from them, and that won't likely change until or unless their regular prices become more reasonable (or the rest of the industry catches them up), or their postage charges change from being 'flat rate', which currently makes buying a few packs prohibitively expensive.

Somehow I seam to have gotten two. Two separate emails both to the same address. I've only ever given them one order too (admittedly a large one).


Parmenion23 Nov 2009 8:00 a.m. PST

Yep, I got one. As usual, it'll probably prompt me to spend an hour or so browsing Foundry's site before eventually deciding that I don't actually need anything.

Titchmonster23 Nov 2009 8:20 a.m. PST

What was the discount? Better then the online promo?

bjporter23 Nov 2009 8:24 a.m. PST

Yeah, the part about normal postage rates applying killed any thought of ordering for me.

MiniatureWargaming dot com23 Nov 2009 8:46 a.m. PST

Hmmm. My coupon says post free regardless of order size.

I am special too, according to Foundry at least.

dichelus Supporting Member of TMP23 Nov 2009 9:05 a.m. PST

I got one too.
But their € to GbP exchange rate prevents all orders from my side.

FOUNDRY SPECIAL 20% Discount Offer!
Ends 2nd December 2009
A restricted number of special customers have been selected from our database to receive the offer of a 20% discount on anything they buy from our website between now and 2nd December 2009.
PS. you can also use this offer on any of our new models, like the Ancient Civilians, Zulus and Seven Years War French!!!

To get the discount:-
1. Click on the basket buttons as normal to order your individual items.
2. Click on the ‘View basket' link on the toolbar at the top of the page to check your shopping basket.
3. Enter your special discount code BVS808 in the box marked ‘Enter coupon or gift certificate number' and press the button at the side marked ‘ENTER'.

discount code: BVS808 (you must enter this code exactly as shown here)

Click here to go to Foundry's site!

4. Your discount will be automatically calculated and shown as a deduction from your original order value.
5. Press ‘Continue shopping' if you wish to order more and your discount will automatically be updated as more items are added to your basket.
6. If you have finished your order click on the ‘Purchase for' button and enter your personal details as normal.

We hope that those of you who order will let us know if you find any problems.

The discount applies to all our stuff, models, books, anything currently on our web site, (including all the Christmas offer stuff); normal postage rates apply.

Any orders including FOUNDRY WARGAMES RULES/PUBLICATIONS are post free; no matter how many models (or anything else) you buy at the same time, we will send your entire order post free!!!
You get the discount and get free postage on your whole order!!! Fantastic!
As I understand it, if you include Foundry rules or publications the lot is post free.

Yes, Yes I did.

quidveritas23 Nov 2009 10:42 a.m. PST

yep. Even with the discount . . . No go here.


aecurtis Fezian23 Nov 2009 12:26 p.m. PST

And as always, any order over a set minimum (which depends where you are and what currency you are paying in) goes post free:

For me, that's $147. USD I can't imagine placing an order with the discount that would be less. Fortunately, I don't "need" anything right now.

Pardon the interruption to the gleeful, fact-irrelevant bashing. Pray continue.


Skeptic23 Nov 2009 5:07 p.m. PST

Yep, got it. Still, you could buy a book at 20% off, and then get free postage for it and whatever else you buy.

piper90923 Nov 2009 9:52 p.m. PST

What Parmenion said, alas. Being Special doesn't make up for being out of work, *sigh*. Sniff.

Big Martin24 Nov 2009 4:52 a.m. PST

I did – not that I can think of anything I actually want from them.
