Ok, so it just occured to me that we should have a thread where we can post special sales and discount codes being offered by our favorite bead suppliers. I know I often have a running list of things I'm wanting from a number of places, but can't always justify buying them all... but if there's a special sale going on, I'm more likely to go ahead and buy them THEN. I JUST happened to stumble across artbeads.com's best price sale. All their items were being sold at their best quantity discount price, so I was able to buy a number of things I had been wanting (chainsta for me!!!) ad a better price than I would have EVER gotten otherwise. Did it occur to me to mention it to anyone? NO, and of course it just ended yesterday.

SO, here is a place to post about any specials you happen across!

Nice thread Lois thanks!

Let's not forget the codes in the mags too, many times those are even better than online codes!

Here's a few:

ahbeads.com:  $5 off your order use code "button"

Beadaholique:  20% off your order use code "BBJAN2". Expires 2/22/10. It says on their page this is for Bead&Button newsletter subscribers but not sure if they can track that.

Artbeads:  10% off $50 or more use code "SCP10P-1F2B-0110" expires 2/28/10

That's what I thought too! I'm STILL kicking myself for not posting about the artbeads special sale that was happening. Ah well. NOW we know where to post things in the future, right?

Beadaholique runs the 20% discount code in stringing and step by step wire too. I'm sure the code is slightly different. Its seems to be an ongoing thing, so when it expires in Feb there will probably be another one in the next issue.

We have monthly specials that feature different products throughout our store and specials on loads of goodies.

Our monthly specials tend to have a theme that fits that given month, so if it is February, you might see specials on pink and red gemstones and wire - if it is July, you might see discounted red, white and blue products.

This isn't an online thing, but if anyone lives in/near upstate NY, Bead Spring, in Red Hook (UPSTATE NY, not Brooklyn, NYC), is closing at the end of March.  They're having sales, and currently their glass stuff (seed beads included) is 50% off, gem strands are various percents off, loose gems 30% off, and various other sales from 30-50% off.

It's worth checking out, if you live close enough. :D
