Lightbulb Group order of SA24s/SA36s from manufacturer - survey
Hi fellow forum members,

I've recently been in contact with Globos Tuky, the manufacturer of the coveted SA24 and SA36 balloons. As it turns out, they can in fact ship to the US, but the minimum order is $500, which amounts to hundreds of balloons - not something I alone have the space (or free cash) for. Since I know that many other users are interested in them as well, I thought organizing a large group order directly from the manufacturer would be a good idea.

I've created a form to gauge interest in a group order. There's no guarantees yet, but if there's enough interest that we can collectively reach the threshold, I'll look into the logistics of placing an order and distributing them. Right now, I'm estimating the cost per balloon will be about $2 for the SA24, and $2.50 for the SA36 (USD). This should be enough to cover the cost of the balloons themselves, as well as the shipping from Argentina, taxes, and any other fees. Shipping from the US to your address is not included in this cost (They would be shipped discreetly of course).

You can fill out the survey here - it's very quick (should only take a minute or two) and the responses are private. If you have any other questions, reply or send me a private message. I'll let everyone know here if anything changes.

Thanks! I'll leave it up for at least a week for others to have a chance to reply.

I did the survey earlier today. If I was a bit more well off financially, I might have just bought the $500 and sold them to make a profit.

Almost half way to the minimum order threshold already!

On a side note, you can edit your survey responses if you checked the box for an email copy of your answers, and if you didn't you can PM me and I can give you a link to edit them.

I just did the survey again to add to what I said earlier.

Again, I fully intend to purchase the 40 or so that I have mentioned if this actually happens.

Looks like they go for about $30 each on ebay... it's fair to pay extra for someone's work and profit, but 1000% markup is a bit much. lol

Yeah, the absurd pricing and lack of availability is why I wanted to organize this.
