Apologies about the mistake I made regarding the Paysan bundle- to all of you and BHQ. I HAVE seen BHQ mess with pricing quite a lot and even on other bundles but I must have looked at the wrong one there.

I guess I got caught in a grumpy moment there - however, BHQ tends to have the slowest shipping around, they were the FIRST to start charging tax online (yes I know this is a legal thing, but plenty of retailers have held out), and they offer no loyalty rewards like many of the other large online retailers do... so they are my least favorite place to buy knives. They're good at social media and offer lots of exclusives so it's hard to avoid them entirely.

I agree that BHQ needs to have a loyalty program.

But their shipping on normal (not crazy crash-the-server exclusives) has always been very fast for me.

I'd rather a retailer offer lower prices than a rewards program. I avoid signing up for stuff like that, whether shopping online or in person.

Well so far KC has given me $150 in gift cards so I’m pretty **** happy with them. I’m in CA and they consistently get me my orders within a couple days where BHQ in Utah takes that long just to generate tracking/have the label scanned.

I think bhq has hands down the best website setup. Especially their search function. You can narrow down by country, steel, blade shape, handle material, weight, price, and the list goes on. Whenever Im looking for a specific kind of knife I go right to their website. Also the salt lake salt series video was pretty cool. A rewards program would be nice but if they keep doing spyderco bundles I feel like that is also a really great deal.

I have opinions on BHQ as well.. But I will not share them here.

I don't think we're anywhere near there yet, but we should probably all take a beat and stop to remember why "Crazy Good Deals" part one was shutdown..

RIP "Crazy Good Deals" part one.. long live "Crazy Good Deals Part 2!" :)

..well, that escalated quickly..

They can't. They have to follow MAP, and for a lot of reasons (most of them beginning with A and ending with Z) that's a good idea. Which means they need other ways to differentiate themselves.

I actually crunched the numbers on the various loyalty programs and DLT seems to be the best for non-exclusives. Since most of my purchases these days are exclusives, though, I have a fair number of different points in different places. I recently used the KC points to pick up a Dragonfly 2 in ZDP as a gift for one of my guys.

Good grief folks, you’re going to get this thread shut down to. Take it to Off Topic! Save this thread for actual deals folks want to know about!

What bothers me about the previous, epic, iconic thread...is the guy that stirred things up and really got it off the rails and locked, was a newer member who doesn't even frequent the forum like many of us do :o

KnivesPlus still has quite a few discontinued models for sale. Not great prices, but very tough to find models if there's something specific you may be looking for.

Honestly guys I get why that was obnoxious to a lot of you. I don’t regret it, although I won’t do it again bc I don’t feel it would be worth it and I already made my point. But for what it’s worth a well-respected and established member of this community messaged me privately that they agreed and supported me 100%, and if you actually pay attention you’ll see I participate and contribute to the forum pretty regularly. So if we could all get along and enjoy discussing knives we love, that’d be great. I’m a troll in many contexts, but not here.
😊

If you guys do wanna talk about me, maybe you should start a new thread and do it there instead of derailing this one... just a little something I learned a while back.
