20% Off at campsaver.com is back. Code 20TWNTY

Order for Kapara placed! Thanks for the heads up!
I ordered the Smock for $130!
Are they about to have them in stock? No other place has yet.
They say, 7-10 days is the anticipated shipping date, but I'm pretty sure that is just their stock answer for anything out of stock. They didn't charge my credit card, so I assume they only do that when the item ships so I'm not really out anything by giving it a shot. Even if they did, it's a credit card, I can wait a few weeks to get the knife. If they end up canceling the order, as someone else mentioned, I'll then be able to use the 20% off whenever they truly get them in stock. If someone else gets them in stock sooner, I can always cancel the order.

Either way, the Smock should be coming out any time now and I don't really want to check various websites every day for its availability.

I wouldn't trust them with these discounts on knives that haven't been released yet either. Every time they offer this deal I see a lot of people saying they used the discount on one. I don't see this working out well.
For what it's worth, I did this with a pre-order for the Kapara back in August, and just called this morning to make sure the order would process. The customer service rep on the phone said he had my order on file with the coupon / discounted price showing, and it would process and ship out today. I haven't gotten shipping confirmation yet, but it at least sounds promising.

They fulfilled my Kapara pre-order from 8/15.

I preordered the Smock during the last 20 off sale. At that time it said “Extended backorder - unknown ETA” and was that way until recently so they do update the status.

I went ahead and pre-ordered the smock this time, but I wouldn’t be surprised if their allotment won’t cover the preorders. We’ll see.

There's a BNIB Kapara for sale for $175 on BF
Taken out for photos only.

Not sure if it's a really good deal but I thought it was less than they were selling for.

Why on earth buy a pre-owned one when you can get the Kapara from from Campsaver for $150 with 20% off?

After I ordered one from them a couple days ago, I chatted with a representative who said mine would ship on the fourteenth of this month. I highly doubt this will be the case, but it never hurts to hope.

Ok, I'm not after one but the quick looks I've seen ($188 knife centre), just posted it up since
you guys seem to try to save a $ or two.

Better to know and not buy than not know and find out after the event.

This thread is for letting the community know about deals available at retailers, not for individuals promoting their personal knives for sale on other forums.

Frankly $13 below MAP on a preowned Kapara isn’t a “deal”.

It's not my knife so stop insinuating I'm promoting my own personal knives.

Saving $1 seems to be a big deal to some.

For EU buyers there are some pretty good deals to be had at Lamnia. Most Spyderco knives are ~11% off now. So i couldn't resist to buy some more knives.

Here are some standouts:
So i noticed they have the yet to be released REX45 Military on sale. Price is now €185.40, which is less than i paid for my REX45 PM2's. It's not likely to have any discounts when it will release so i put an order in for one.

They also have some new stock of the Spyderco Calypso Jr. SPRINT in SuperBlue. Which is now discounted to €91.73. For us EU buyers (with taxes and all) this is a very good price. So i snagged one. There are 2 left in stock there. Might even be interesting for some international buyers that couldn't get a hold of this sprint run.

Just noticed that Lamnia has free US shipping for orders above $114.20 (100 euro) and they don't charge them VAT. Even though our EU prices aren't as close to MAP there might be some good prices now.

We never get free shipping from the US shops to EU :mad:

The sale is over.

But probably a mistake on their part too. Regular price for us in the EU is €223.46 and now it was discounted by ~17% which is pretty big. It was lower than the US MAP price if you removed the VAT! Late yesterday evening you couldn't even add it to your cart anymore, even though it still had the sale price. I guess they sold out on it? The Calypso Jr's were also gone very fast after my posting here. With deals like this you can't wait. i just put an order in with my creditcard so i don't have to pay right away. They will charge me whenever the REX 45 millie gets shipped. And i can always cancel it, not that i want to.

so you paid €185,-?
before the pricing was €204,-
now it’s €223,-
for that amount of money i can’t justify buying another millie :(

eBay 25% off up to $25 when paying with credit card and code PAYWCARD

The unfortunate $25 cap makes this ideal for $100 or less items. Must pay with credit card (not Paypal).

Is there a start time or is it website only? Can’t get code to work.
