What to do? Help me decide!

So I have a bit of a delimma. I have about $51 worth of points right now. I was hoping to save up at least $59 to get free shipping on my next order. BUT there is a toy on sale that I want-the sale ends tonight at midnight. It's about 50% off, which ends up being more than double the value of shipping. I am leaning towards just placing my order and sacrificing the points for the shipping rather than losing a great deal on a toy I will probably get eventually anyway...but not 100% sure. What do you guys think?

Sometimes with the 50% off, it ends up being discontinued when it goes out of stock. I'd say get it now because you don't know if they'll keep it around.

I agree. I'd definitely purchase the one on sale.

If it's going to cost more than the price of shipping to get it later, might as well get it now with your points.

I'd go ahead, depending on how badly you want it. It's true, you never know if they're clearing out stock because it's discontinued, so if you really want it, get it while you can!

I use the points to help make products more affordable. I don't think it's fair to just use them to get free stuff. I try to make sure it's a good deal for both EF and myself. It takes a fair amount of cash to support non-revenue producing forums and other activities.

In my opinion we should not be simply looking for a 'free lunch'.

Have you considered just adding a little something to your order to push you over the $59 minimum?

It may cost you a couple dollars more but that way your money is going toward a bullet vibe, bottle of lube or something else fun as opposed to paying for shipping.

Either way, I'd definitely take advantage of the 50% off before its gone.

I agree with Miss Debauchery. Often, sale toys go out of stock quickly. People see it, jump in and buy it as soon as they can. So take the points you have now and take advantage of this sale. It probably wont come again for a while anyhow.

Place the order! I've seen too many toys be discontinued after I missed my chance to purchase them!

Chances are that the amount you would save getting it at 50% off would be greater than the $5.99 shipping, so I'd say order it now. Also, as others have mentioned, if it is discontinued, you will be kicking yourself for some time to come.

Yeah I find myself eying a toy and when the points are right in range my impulse to buy before I hit the goal kicks up so sometimes it's like oh hell! Let's just get it now!

This is what I would do! It would be well worth it spend the extra $8 cash out of pocket to get more stuff!
