Another Wallbuys 20-50% off sale.

I know we probably don’t need another WallBuys thread, but this is to give you a heads up on a brand new promotion for those that wish to participate:

http://wallbuys.com/crazypromotions

I have been very happy with my three WallBuys purchases so far, and will probably be looking at this promotion to add a AAA keychain light (YEZL/Olight/Fenix/other?), as well as the $32 Sky Ray King.

The YEZL S7 for $13.68 here:

http://wallbuys.com/crazypromotions/3

The Olight i2 EOS for $21.42 here:

http://wallbuys.com/crazypromotions/5

Fenix E01 for $10.69 here:

http://wallbuys.com/crazypromotions/6

Sky Ray King here for $32:

http://wallbuys.com/crazypromotions/4

Any recommendations on a AAA keychain light, or alternative to the SRK?

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

I am STILL waiting for my first order to come.  It was processed through HK on 1/13/13 and that is the last update I have.  No way am I going to order more from them until these show up.

Also, I purchased a King on the last promo, only to have the price go up after I submitted my reservation. To me, that's total crap.  They claimed the supplier raised the price.  Well, that may be true, but they should have honored the price advertised.  It ended up being not much cheaper than elsewhere, so I decided not to get it.

My lights here and here

This one kind of annoys me as well. I am still waiting on an order from last year. I was going to buy a SRK last time but was not happy with the zero communication from my first order. Plus the discount only brought it down to Fast tech’s price anyway. Then they said no more big deals for a long time. So I bought the FandyFire SRK from Fast tech. for $42.75 it was ten dollars more than this sale.

Oh well I probably wouldn’t have been one of the first five and it would probably have taken a month or so to get it. Plus I am still waiting on the flashlight I bought from them back in late December.

I hope to get the flashlight I ordered soon and I also hope that they manage to get their stuff together. For now I am sticking with Fast Tech.

I’m a junky, I mod lights so I can sell lights so I can buy more light to mod so I can sell lights to buy more lights to mod.

They no longer seem concerned about the load a sale might have on their servers (maybe they've upgraded?).

I probably won't buy anything, but it will be fun to shop around. Thanks for the info.

I got two of my three Xmas orders. Couldn’t be happier. Can’t believe the low price I got this stuff for. I got a bike light today that was $15 or so during their sale. It is a nice light. I wish I had bought several to give as gifts. I just didn’t know if they would ship all this stuff.

I got a Nitecore T2s which is a tiny AAA keychain light. I don’t recommend it. The Thrunite Ti is twice the light at half the price.

They have the Olight Eos for $16 in a couple of colors. That is a very nice 1AAA light and if you don’t have one, get one. You will judge all other lights by it. Quality is great, brightness is great. If you drop in a 10440 it becomes a 200 lumen flame thrower.

Out of all my lights the ones that impress non-flashaholics the most are my SRK and my Olight Eos with a 10440. People can’t understand how such a tiny light can produce so much light.

Maybe they expected more people to use the upload your order in advance solution, it’s a very easy way to avoid busy server time. Most criticisms I see levelled at Wallbuys I think are justified. but this really is a none issue when they have provided a workable way round it.

As for upgrades, do you want a fast site that can handle a once every two month peak load or the biggest discount? Somebody has to pay for the bandwidth.

Don’t be a chump, be a chimp!

Well, this one is just a clearance sale, it is starting in an hour, I doubt they have much time to do their price-change magic anyway. And it is on until some time in February or stock cleared.

The “other” Wallbuys big sale (up to 70%) will be unveiled on 7th February. (Didn’t they say no more sale for a “long” time? 2 weeks long enough, haha)

This pisses me off another sale and some of the stuff is discounted more then they said they could do on the last sale!
Example the TR-3T6 last sale was $28 and now $24 on this sale. This is BS!!!!

Edited – forgot to put in there that i bought one at the $28 price. :quest:

Lemme get this straight…you are pissed because there are LOWER prices? Some people are never satisfied.

So if you buy something at a price on a advertised sale that they say they can not mark down any further then weeks later they put it on sale again at a lower price your ok with that?

The question is, were you happy paying the price you did at the time? If so, and it can subsequently be bought cheaper, well, life’s like that.

Anyway, who bought up all the Yezl silicon grease? We know you are out there. Wink

Missed the silicone grease too. And that floodlight, dang, I must have missed that three times already. All gone in 3 minutes! Wallbuys, you better stack those up for the 7th Feb sale, if you’re making profit what have you got to lose.

Well, at least I know there are bigger addicts than me with happier trigger finger, haha. :bigsmile:

There 4pcs left of that 3T6 at $24 anyhow.

EDIT: Aaand they’re gone.

You actually find it worth to get angry about $4 ? I would be glad I got the item at a good price, which I guess you thought it were since you bought it.

Well basically im not angry just pissed off! I had emailed them numerous times before they even put it on the last sale and they said that was all they could do. Its more principal then anything else! Plus i was just making a statement not a discussion. Yes i would rather have my $4 then give it to them.

The stuff I want was out of stock as the sale started. I don’t consider it a sale when they don’t hardly have any stock!

But thanks to the OP for the heads up.

I understand you getting annoyed over $4, I would if the item I bought in the ‘big crazy sale’ was cheaper in the next ‘big crazy sale’ 2 weeks later.

The problem with Wallybuys is that they have very little or even no stock ready for the sale. It’s a bit like when the supermarket advertise half price TV’s only to find out that they only ever had one of them for sale. A sale should apply to all, not to the one person who gets the item.

I bought the TR-3T6 at 28,11$ last time.. Which was the best deal on the market as far as I know.

If you complain about it being 3,75 $ cheaper this time, then you should be happy you did not buy it at 50$ which some sell it for.
I do get your point though.. I really do.. I thought.. “arh.. should have waited”.. But other times I say, “glad I bought it when I did”.
I will just not complain about people getting better deals.
Same thing with the sky-ray. Someone bought it last time for a higher price. Way cheaper this time…

I would be a bit sad to be a store owner.. People complain about “flashlights being to cheap”. :Sp
“People complain about having the same types of deal and not much new stuff”
“people complain about not getting 50% off. Only 25%….
etc etc etc….

“oh no.. This time the flashlight I can easily live without and bought 2 weeks ago was 4$ cheaper on the current sale with limited stock. (Wich is all time low for a 3-XML light as far as i know.)
Its principle. They should have told they would offer it cheaper on a future sale, which they may or may not had planned the prices or inventory for…
If they knew that they might have gotten better prices from the people they buy from, which might have been the reason for price drop, they should have informed me such things was discussed and could happen in the future… Im pissed!
1st world problem

What is the next thread we are going the see here?:“wallbuys screwed us over on last sale, this sale have even better prices on some stuff”

I don’t mean no harm with this if some should take it personally. Just saying. Enjoy the prices. No matter how good deal you believe you do, there will always be something better around the corner. No need to complain about it, you made a good deal on the last sale.

Pretty much ok with it.

Look at it this way. Perhaps they got a better wholesale deal between then and now and decided to pass that along to the customer. I’m certainly ok w/that.

Seriously though…pick your battles. Lower prices is a GOOD thing! Positive feedback and sales ensure more of them in the future. If you don’t like their form of sales promotion, give them constructive feedback (FYI…bitching is not constructive) on how they can improve…or…don’t participate. Pretty simple, really.

Hopefully they will have more of these sales…I have cleaned up and it has enabled me to become a novice in flashlight collecting. Wait…maybe that’s a bad thing…looking at my thinned-out wallet, that is :bigsmile:
