    i recently bought a flipbin, and with my correspondence with them, I mentioned possibly trying to get a group rate for VMP forum members.

    Here’s what he responded back:

    Hey - yeah, I’d love to work with the group; I had at various points talked w/ the gang @ VMP about doing a custom for VMP members only kinda thing. Love to hear the forum’s talking about it, hopefully good - it’s hard to keep up (and I work a day job:) but I love hearing that.
    They’re pretty expensive for me to mfg, but I wish that wasn’t the case - I could do a little break for you guys for sure though, maybe a discount code VMP or something? Talk to the crew and let me know and we’ll see what we can make happen!

    So here we are...if you are interested in possibly buying one, just reply and let me know if you’re interested. I will post more details as I learn more.

    For those interested..here is the deal
    A couple options:
    15%
    if you use the code: VMP we’ll knock 15% off the price, w/ a minimum of $75 https://flipbin.com/discount/VMP - use it for a combo 33/45 and you’ll save $18

    FREE SHIPPING / combo: if you pick up 2 of the Model 33’s, you’ll not only save $20(no code needed!) but it will also qualify for Free Shipping, US only (sorry!) if you use the code: WIRED at check out (Wired put us in their best gear of the year issue;)

    For Canada: working on this and hope to have a pre-order w/ Funky Moose for Canada..it’s still gotta deal w tariff/tax/border stuff but we’ll try to make it a little easier on the wallets.

    Chicago peeps: we’ll be at the Chirp Radio record fair next Saturday (14th) and will do a little show discount (and ya get to skip shipping cuz you’re local!)

    NY peeps: we’re gonna start having ‘em available at Rough Trade, starting on RSD...but this is a *secret* so hang tight for more details on Insta (flipbin2000)

    fwiw, this one’s for you guys on this thread... and hopefully it helps to make it a little less painful on the wallet. If anyone has questions or I didn’t do my math right (happens a lot!) just reach out here or hit me up via email hello@flipbin.com and I’ll try to fix it or answer any questions!

    Thanks @bfr

    Yes...I’m not expecting a guaranteed confirmation, but rather a headcount of who might be interested

    I have but if VMP put in a large order we would get a better deal than us doing it because I am betting non-forumers would be willing to buy these and there are way more non-formers than there are forumers

    This would be my strong preference given shipping international, etc

    I'm just going by the response @Crabbers got about them costing a lot to produce, which to me would translate out to them being in the VMP Store for the same amount as they are in the FlipBin store with VMP keeping the discount as profit........not that that's wrong, but bigger isn't always better.

    But hey, I'm just along for the ride on this one, just tossing in my two cents ;)

    That is a possibility, but international members would get a better deal regardless and it might better to get officially VMP designed flipbins

    Well, with VMP getting in...it might cost the same, so VMP can make their share...from my experience with curated Records, the price isn’t always that great, unless you are international.

    Even if we can get them down $10 and shipping, that’s a win in my book ...but we shall see

    I honestly don't know @Enoch , VMPs shipping formula may not work with bulkier items and I can't help but feel that a custom VMP edition would make the price go north not south. But we'll see, hopefully it all pans out for some savings for everyone.
