A Smug Dill posted a topic in Market WatchI see Milligram Outlet is offering eight units of the Pilot Elabo (aka Falcon) in black, with metal barrel and Soft Fine nib, for A$245 each. Shipping Australia-wide is $8.80 per order (with no ‘free shipping’ spend threshold and no other waiver available). Comes packaged with a CON-70 converter each; I can't say whether that is the newer CON-70N or actually the (older, discontinued) CON-70. Not a bad price, I suppose. Cheaper by >10% than buying from Mega Office Supplies, and I haven't seen Mega Office Supplies offer a ≥10% site-wide discount code for a long while. Cheaper also than buying on Amazon AU, Amazon.com (i.e. ordering from the US), or from PenSachi (i.e. ordering from Japan) at the moment, as far as I can see. Bookbinders Design AU is offering it for A$256 at the moment with free shipping. Well-known site-wide discount codes cannot be applied to bring the price down even further by another 10%–15%.
A Smug Dill posted a topic in Market WatchMilligram Outlet in Australia has just put up 11(?) units of the LAMY 2000 55th Anniversary Limited Edition gift set for A$560 each, with a $8.80 Australia-wide delivery charge per order that is not waived. That's effectively US$400 (excluding delivery charge) each. For Australians looking to get one quickly and/or “buy local”, that's not half bad for a retail offer, if a brown LAMY 2000 is what they're after.
Milligram has been offering its stock of black-covered Bloc Rhodia No.18 80g/m² lined (A4-sized, 7mm-ruled, with blue horizontal lines and a red vertical margin line) notepads on clearance for a week now, for A$5 each [/and/] with a “buy 3 for the price of 2” offer. The effective price is therefore A$10 for three, or $3.33 each when you buy in multiples of three on a single order, and that's if the purchaser is not eligible for any other discounts (such as the "Friends For Life" discount of 10% site-wide) that apply. I imagine it may be obstacle to some (or even most) prospective customers that the threshold for free domestic shipping on a single order is $69 (after discounts); without the FFL discount, one has to order 21 of those notepads at once to avoid the $5.99 delivery charge which would dilute the effective discount on the order, and 24 of them with the FFL discount. However, Milligram just announced today (a few hours ago) that it's offering free shipping for orders of $29 or more, for a limited time only. That means one can buy just nine of those notepads, delivery included, for a $30 outlay without the FFL discount, or get twelve notepads delivered for $36 with the FFL discount, if he/she uses an Australia delivery address. (Since Milligram delivers using Australia Post Parcel post service, Parcel Locker and Parcel Collection addresses are OK, as well as PO Boxes and physical/street addresses in Australia.) When I checked less than ten minutes ago, the maximum number of these notepads the system will accept on a single order is 426 — down from 472 three days ago — so I'll assume that's what Milligram thinks it has in stock and wants to clear. Rhodia paper fans, knock yourself out! Edit: Updated stock level
