Can the 10% discount be used on the online orders? I see a place to put a gift certificate #, but will the 10% automatically be calculated at check out? Or do I need to email or call in the order for the 10% to apply?

Thanks!

I think someone said to put that you are a forum member in "special instructions" box on the checkout form. Maybe put your forum name too. I don't really know. This is just a guess.

Not to hijack your forum but when you hit 250 posts and you get your $50 GC can you use that in conjunction with your $10 GC... ?

and also what TRACI asked...

Call to link your Scubatoys username to your Scubatoys store acct. Then it's automatic after that. It's explained by Larry here (http://forum.scubatoys.com/about-site/1264-savings-board-members-gift-certificates.html).

Will the same thing apply if you just go to the store? I live close and like to do business face to face, when I can. Do you just tell the guys at the store about being a forum member?

One more post, and I've almost got my first $10 GC.

what a great site this is!

On my last order, in the comments section I asked for them to issue and apply my $10 gift cert. for posting and to apply my 10% discount and for free shipping, as I was spending Xmas cash on Xmas. No problem. No discusssion. ST did all that I asked.

Damn I love that place!

Signing up for the forum I didn't realize I was entitled to a 10% discount on my orders; that was a pleasant surprize! And ST price matches.
I was looking at computers but now I'm putting my list together and it is growing and growing!

MLenyo
01-20-2008, 01:40
wow, i'm pretty pumped that you can use both cert.s together. so hard to NOT use the first one, though.

Nope, every time. Part of why I keep coming back to ST, when paired with great CS, and price matching, why go anywhere else?

That makes sense...they do have a business to run and need to try to make a profit somehow every once in a while, although I'm not sure it's possible at these prices, but I'm not complaining.:smiley20:

I can't wait! I'll be calling in so I'll probably just do the 10% and the GCs because I'll hopefully be doing a "modified package". :) This is truly allowing me to be able to get my own gear. Without this, I probably wouldn't be able to due to being a married college student! :)

I never get the certificates. I don't know how may posts I have either. I just call and order, and mention the 10% for being a Forum member, and they don't check anything(i don't think) they just give it to me. I always like to call because I am question intensive. Calling also gains you good information from the guys. And they also have alot of stuff that is not even on the site. I just called the other day for some stuff and mentioned the exact tank I wanted(unpainted Luxfer 30 pony tank with a convertible valve) which was not on the site, and they had it in stock and for alot less $$$ than anywhere else I looked. "I'll take it".
Shop and fill up your cart, then call them while your looking at it, and figure out what you really want with the guys, is the way to do it.
