    Correct, but you got 40% off 29/38 AT reloads on Wednesday if you were a club member. The 29/38 club discount then dropped to 35% on Saturday. The larger reloads (and CTI) were added to the mix this morning (with >38mm AT reloads at 30% off)

    The bottom line is that there were no items that were on sale for club members on Wednesday that went up in price (club member price) on Saturday. IF you bought any motor that was not priced at "special club member" pricing on Wednesday then you should have waited until Saturday. Even if the item wasn't on sale Wednesday and didn't go on sale on Saturday either, you would still get the standard club discount.

    This year's discount favored folks on the low impulse end of reloads. Last year, AT White Lightning reloads got 40% off. In 2016 Super Thunder was the special of the season:

    As far as kits, the Wednesday pricing for club members was better than Saturday, as it should be. If a new kit was added to the mix on Saturday, Tim offered a Club price that was better than the sale price (3" Punisher for instance).

    Were all the CTI reloads discounted on Saturday? I bought a bunch of 24mm 3 and 6 grain CTI reloads on Wednesday just to get them on the same order as all the other hazmat reloads.

    The special sale ended at noon, so I believe that the $58.50 is the normal club price.

    I got a grip on myself and decided I didn't need another kit (plus additional supplies) right at the moment. Be sure brain is engaged before putting "Add to cart" finger in gear.

    I'm honestly disappointed, I renewed my wildman club membership for Wednesdays sale and found only 29/38 MM on sale. Only thing I need is motors (75/98MM) so to find out when I got home from work today that club members had %30 off AT and also %20 CTI was a shock. Those should of been available for club members on Wednesday along with other other things on today's list. I appreciate wildman for doing this sale every year, I didn't see a perk to being a club member this year, my feedback for next year.

    If
    Can't please everybody! If you were after 75mm and 98mm loads as you describe, you'd likely spend over $600. If you did, you'd save the $30 membership for the year on the spot...let alone future savings for the next year.

    After all, all aerotech HP loads were 25% off for non members and 30%off for members.

    For me,.I was busy with family on wednesday night. I bought some of the same items today slightly higher prices. Do I feel ripped off? No, I'm thankful quality products were offered at discount prices from a great vendor!

    If you've been around hpr long enough, the fact that we get high power motors at 30% off current prices is awesome in itself. And glass kits at these prices...wow!

    Thanks Wildmans!!!!

    I thought just from a planning perspective it was odd that there were items on sale Saturday that weren't on sale Wednesday. Seems like it would be less work for everybody if people only made a Wednesday order and not orders both days and then emailing Tim to ask for consolidation. I'm sure they had their reasons but it seems more complicated that way.

    That's what I said too. Then somehow these two "accidentally" ended up in my cart. :confused: 1130190749a.jpg

    Rockets breed in shopping carts somehow. I don't quite understand it.

    Well said Eric. I paid more for a AT M1315 than what you could buy one today and that was 20 years ago.

    It always seems that the Wildman Black Wednesday/Saturday has a steep learning curve. A few things are on sale to Wildman Club members on Wednesday night. It’s over when it’s over. Lots of stuff is on sale on Saturday with lower prices on some stuff for club members. The sale ends at noon. Deliveries start when they start. It might be spring before you get your stuff, even though you already paid. It’s a great sale. Tim and Jackie are among the best in the hobby.

    Those that know, know. Those that don't, complain. Until they know. Then they don't complain any more. LOL!! Wildman makes High Power, Fiberglass, and hardware affordable for everyone. And he bends over backwards to make sure that everyone gets what they want at the best prices possible. Don't like it? Shop elsewhere, as is your right.
    We all learn. When I first got into high power, people told me to wait until Black Saturday. I didn't. I bought a 3" Darkstar at $200. A month later, they were on sale for $100. Woops. We learn and try again, just like with rockets. (Oh, so THAT'S why people use trackers even on a flat field...).

    This is the first year I made it out with a budget intact, thank goodness. Only took me 5 years to figure out how. LOL

    WOW is all i can say.

    The Wednesday sale is only for club members it's not the only sale for club members.It has always been a presale for the Saturday sale, to try and work out the bugs with the website and give something extra to club members .
    Eric if you would like your money back I would be happy to give it to you. I don’t want an unhappy customer .

    Or even better, after you got home from work and saw the sale prices for Saturday you could have contacted us about giving you the sale prices .( you wouldn't be the first or last )

    After looking over my reload inventory I should have picked up a couple of reloads. Other than that it was a great sale.

    This is true. I sat out the first few years of Wildman sales and read all the good/bad/ugly posts. Once I understood how it works, I jumped in. There is a pattern to it.
