Hello everyone,

 

I used to shop at a pen store in Kansas City, so I get their monthly emails. They're starting a new website: http://www.shoppenplace.com.

 

To celebrate their opening, they are offering a 25% discount on all of their products using the following coupon code:

newwebsite25%

 

$45.45 for TWSBI mini (with cheapest shipping) isn't bad. Anyone know of a better deal?

 

Tom

Thanks for the heads up!  Do you know how long the coupon code is good for?

I haven't tried the coupon but I have bought in person at The Pen Place.  Nice people to deal with, very patient while I was browsing in the store (several visits over a 2-3 year period).  No affiliation, but I still watch their web site and would buy there again.

Coupon code worked for me too, tried it just now. I didn't buy (yet) but applying the code and recalculating got me the discount!

On all of their products, or just pens? I saw your title is "New Website Has 25% Off Pens" but in the body of your post you wrote "they are offering a 25% discount on all of their products."  I'd love to buy an ink from them but I don't know if I should splurge if I don't get the discount.

According to the email, it says everything, but once you go to the checkout page, enter the code and make sure it works.

Just ordered a couple pens. I added some ink to my cart but the discount didn't count towards it. Very nice price for a TWSBI Vac and a Pilot VP with free shipping. My first pen valued over $100.
When you have pen and ink, every problem needs a piece of paper.

Thanks for the link, I like the format of their site quite a bit.

 

I took this opportunity to pick up a Lamy 2000 at a discount, then.....since I was only $18 dollars away from free shipping I tacked on a TWSBI 580.  $168 total for two pens I've been chomping at the bit to own. :D

Dang good prices! I think I'm a gonna snap up a Lamy 2000... And maybe a VP...

 

Oh boy, the temptation with discounts like this. :)


Need a pen repaired or a nib re-ground? I'd love to help you out.

Just wanted to add another happy customer here!  Picked up the 2012 LE VP with the discount, which was awesome.  Also very happy that I was able to pick the EF nib instead of the standard M nib that the LEs come with.  Even got a call the next day from the store saying that their shipment of EF nibs had not yet arrived, so my pen would be slightly delayed.  Got the pen today (a week after I placed the order).  

 

I also like how they ship via UPS in the United States, as opposed to USPS.  (I have way too many issues with USPS losing my packages.)


Current Wishlist:

Visconti, Visconti, and...more Visconti! (And some ST Duponts too). (Ok fine, getting on the Omas and Montblanc trains now too. Toot toot.) (And maybe on the Montegrappa one too, but only for the Miyas.)

Hmmm, that's odd. Im happy that they did this for you, but I ordered a TWSBI 580 on the 14th and I just emailed them tonight because I havent gotten an email about shipping yet. Apparently it's backordered. They responded very quickly and they told me it would take about a week, but Im still kind of ticked because it still says on the website that the pen is still in stock, but its not enough for me to ask for a refund. Probably wouldn't buy from them again, unless they have a steep discount like this again. Apparently it was a mixture of the huge influx of orders and TWSBI running out of 580's, but I definitely would have appreciated an email. I might be a bit touchy though, and maybe me being upset is a bit unwarranted haha
