It depends what you mean by saving money. Wink If you mean saving on sabers, there's no better place to do that than Ultrasabers. I guarantee you I couldn't get a hilt like the one I ordered for the raffle with the options I ordered for the price anywhere else. It's one of the "medium" priced sabers, so I was able to get premium sound, a mixed blade color, AV switch and a heavy grade blade and not clean out my bank account. Plus, if you're really strapped for cash, then there are always stunts and Lite sound. I've entered two raffles previously, both with stunts.  Cool Then there are also less expensive hilts. I was thinking of doing a Dark Liberator with V4 sound and a Tri CREE, until I realized that I could get a saber with a starting price of $159 and get that with Obsidian and some other nice features. I also skipped some features, like a charger, since I have one, as well as going with a two die color rather than a Tri, V3 sound instead of V4 and skipping flash on clash. So, it's just about knowing how to save money when ordering, and resisting the urge to check every box as far as features. Wink

As for saving money, as in setting some back for future purchases, I'm not that good that that. Plus, management where I work didn't help my raffle cause. They cut my hours a couple weeks ago, so I put in for a vacation day to offset the loss in hours. Well, they never approved the vacation day, so Thursday's paycheck was a bit lean.  Roll Eyes

I was referring to saving money in regards to daily life and the adulting aspects.  One of those scenarios where you tell yourself, ok, let’s save up for this vacation or something else but then I get on this forum and see the summer raffle or find out about flash sales and my mind is saying “oooo squirrel!”.  The next thing I know l, I’m building a saber or adding parts to my wishlist.  Haha

Your points are valid though, my builds are dependent upon the specific saber and my wants and needs.  For the most part, unlike to build them myself and there are a few things that I may need need or I have parts that I can throw in myself. This hobby is dependent on the individual and his or her finances so there’s really no wrong way of going about it

I just want to say that no matter how many sabers one has and orders that one has made...  unless you are really clear on the saber or parts that you want the final decision is really difficult.   Undecided

The shock for me and other internationals is the currency conversion and shipping cost... and then custom fees and taxes.   Therefore one must choose wisely.  Smiley

Looks like the Spectre has really drummed up some good raffle business. A great marketing move US. Mine will be here Tuesday, can't wait.

Yeah, seems like it was a great business and marketing move by US. I'll admit my purchasing one so soon was to take advantage of the 10% off and get in on my first ever raffle. So, kudos to US, well played lol.

Yep, US is smart like that. Their release timing usually coincides with a raffle or sale. In fact, I won't be surprised if we see some Spectres among the raffle prizes. Smiley

Good luck to all who entered!  I'll be watching from the sidelines, remember to post pics of your prizes so those who can't enter can at least live vicariously through your winnings.

Hi.  Each coupon that you earn must be entered manually when you check out.  Be sure to place your forum name in the white space for order comments prior to the final stage of making your payment.

If for some reason you enter a coupon and you have not made a sufficient purchase for that level... a reminder notice will come up informing you that the coupon was deleted.  You can then go back and place more purchases in your cart and re-enter the coupon.  You will not get the coupon benefit if you forget to claim it.  Smiley
