    More often than usual, I feel so used and abused when after placing an order for mixing items and then find I could have saved some significant $ by using an available coupon code.

    Yes, there already is a "Deals & Steals section on this Forum. There ARE some good deals to be found there! Unfortunately, I often spend time there going through many pages of hardware and pre-made juice deals and find little or nothing for mixing supplies.

    Today in my email I found 2 limited time offered deals for mixing interest and am not sure where/how to notify the kind folks here. A new thread? Do a search for the past vendor's deal offers? Life could be easier. :)

    I thought it may be nice to have one Sticky for items only related to DIY. Things like bottles, flavors, nic., pg/vg and such. One place I could go to to find out about good deals worldwide. A place newbies can find the 24/7 365 deals.

    All ideas and comments on this idea are welcome and I hope you participate in the totally un-slanted and unbiased poll.:D

    Ecigexpress has weekly coupon codes on Facebook and they advertise sales on different flavoring lines.

    Good idea!
    Recently placed an order with Essential Depot and forgot to use the ship30 code.
    E-mailed them the next day and they refunded the amount.
    I was surprised, most companies will not do that.

    ECX ecigexpress.com Underground10 for 10% discount. This has no known expiration.
    BCF bullcityflavors.com VU6 for 6% discount. This has no known expiration.
    I do believe those are not case sensitive. And now I don't have to keep typing these out every other week or so... :giggle:

    ECX if you sign up for their newsletter you will find an email in your inbox every Friday with their weekend deals. Usually 15% off certain flavor lines.
    Essential Depot if you have Amazon prime you will get free prime shipping when ordering through Amazon of course.

    Thanks for the thread @RonJS! And thanks for the sticky @Huckleberried :bliss:

    Guys, I need to apologize. I spoke out of turn with having a sticky thread for sales in the DIY, and need to unsticky it. My apologies for that confusion, but please, keep the deals coming!

    You are most Welcome!

    Looking at the ECX website, I see that they also offer..."a price match policy."

    If you join http://e-liquid-recipes.com/ go to resources and then shops USA you will find some decent coupon codes as well. They have some great lists for other countries as well. It's well worth the sign up.

    Added to watch list! I have to go re-register my EMA at some places, I think. Seems like I have dropped off some e-mail promotion lists. Whatever I get I'll post.

    And... with 8 votes it looks like Ron is headed for numismatic commemoration. Whaddya think - 3 dollar bill? :p

    I was hoping for the $1 Canadian coin. :D

    Poll voting remains open and I speculate that the Huckleberried selection will easily surpass all others! (That was My choice)

    But but but - HB un-stickied it. Four posts up from yours.

    Not that I'm encouraging anything... :devil:

    I think that was a good thing.

    My OP, to me, was not meant as a Sticky but to open discussion if one was wanted and/or viable.

    Perhaps before a good DIY only Deals Sticky is in place some questions might need to be answered? To make it a good one I think it should contain new posts only telling us about the deal. Should posts regarding vendor out and out fraud be allowed? Poor customer service? Positive comments?(and Yes...I know there is already a Forum area for that:))

    Should Vendors be allowed to directly post there? What kind(s) of vendors?

    Should off topic posts (like this one? ;)) be simply deleted by our kind Moderators?

    There is a good chance there are other concerns and as I said..."All ideas and comments on this idea are welcome "

    Could mixing newbies reading the Deals Sticky be driven to perhaps read the other stickies? (Like... http://vapingunderground.com/threads/diy-disclaimer-for-eliquid.125/ )

    Could some Forum Members, who have saved money with the Deals Sticky, be considering donating some of those extra coins in their pockets to VU?

    That could get messy if there are no restrictions and might defeat the purpose of it being solely for DIY stuff.

    You mean like Deals & Steals at ECF? I vote no. Self policing - and the occasional OT is less... stressful.

    Since HB says it can't be a sticky I'm good with it being just what it would be: A dedicated thread in the DIY section.

    I guess you would have to ask HB about this, as to why it was "voted down" for sticky status.

    No comment.

    I asked BCF just to send one in case I'm too busy to log into the website. They are quick to respond and I'm so glad I waited to buy from them instead of....Lots of flavors I'm so excited!

    Totally wicked is having a 30% off sale on flavorings as well.

    I'm somewhat surprise other DIY juice vendors are not announcing Easter sales.

    Business must be too good already...;)

    Fortunately, Easter hasn't been made into the big commercial sales fest yet. Unless you make candy or Paas egg coloring kits...

    With Easter this year being so close to the US IRS tax filing deadline, perhaps many vendors are thinking nobody has any $$ left to buy anything. ;)
