Hello everyone, I told Mike from GearUpEurope that he could post some details here about a discount for BLF users. (He respectfully asked me first in a private message.) How about if we let him put those details in the next post that follows this one so it's near the top of the thread, and then we can add our comments afterwards. Thanks!

In only about 2 days of membership I've had the chance to chat with about 5 different members already.  I'm really impressed with the down-to-earth friendly attitude of the community.  I hope your forum will continue to thrive, yet retain its positive feel-at-home atmosphere.  I keep an eye on some of the larger forums but the endless bickering and salesmanship are just too much for me.  I think I'll stick around here for a while and see how it goes.  So far so good.

 

If you are a member of the Budget Light Forum you may use the coupon code BLF5 to receive an additional 5% discount on all items in the GearUpEurope.com shop.

When you place a product in the shopping cart you will see the navy blue Budget Light Forum logo below the Checkout button.  Click the Budget Light Forum logo.  A texbox will appear.  Enter the code BLF5 .  An additional 5% discount will be applied to your order.

 

If there are any questions or concerns please contact me by email: sales@GearUpEurope.com.  My name is Mike.  I also have blog that may be interesting: The GearUpEurope.com Blog.  I wish I had more time to keep it updated.  There are some basic flashlight reviews and pictures.

I'd like to thank the members and your administrator sb56637 for the warm welcome and for putting together such a nice forum.

Take care,

Mike

Buyers in Europe should be avare of the vendors address:

 

"Our Address, Where Are We Located?

 

12 Atzmon Street 
Alfe Menashe 
Israel 
44851 

Your package will be shipped from this address."

 

Getting merchandice from outside The European Union will probably mean paying custom dues!

Mr Admin should change this in the first post. They are not based in Europe.

Cheap quality is good - Expensive crap isn´t

Just as soon as I complete my hostile takeover of Bass Pro Shops, Camping World, Cabela's, and REI.  Should be next week or so.  Laughing

 

On the serious side, if you live in the States, GearUpEurope.com may not be for you.  I can beat the European dealers on price, customer service, and shipping times, and I "help" my customers to avoid paying silly customs taxes.  If you live in the States you have plenty of local dealers that surely offer similar items at similar prices.  Europeans suffer from ridiculous prices and sub-standard service.  My niche is to solve those problems.  Enough blah blah, how's the fishing this summer?

Just visited GearUpEurope.com, it seems they are closed. Perhaps admin could change the thread to [SHOP CLOSED] or something like that...

Keychain flashlights FTW!

Well, that did not last long, did it?

Hope no one here sent them any money recently.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...
