    Hi Guys & Girls

    Recently I had a discussion with Vapor about how we would be able to help the community - give something back for you supporting us.

    We have decided to run a few exclusive member offers every once in a while on products we know you will be interested in.

    This time we have chosen the hard to get hold of Gentle Typhoon fans Forum members can now claim an extra 5% off the price of ANY of the Gentle Typhoon range!!

    All you need to do is enter this code when you go to checkout: xstyphoon

    Please note if you have not used our website before you will need to sign up for an account first to be able to see where to enter the discount code.

    For USA customers delivery is as cheap as $8* for next day delivery

    *Terms apply offer valid until the end of May 2011. Offer "should" work on all aquatuning domains.

    Thanks AT for the offer.
    I tried it on the German site (being a customer for several years now) and it worked, 5% rebate after applying the Coupon Code.

    Haven't ordered anything though, just wanted to check if it worked.

    Unfortunately the shipping is $16 for me which costs more than the fan.

    Straight from there web site:

    Orders intended to be shipped with „ UPS Express fast lane “ must be placed until 01:00am CST (8:00GTM) and all payment must be processed. Only than it is possible to deliver the order within 48h!
    Orders which are placed after 01:00am CST (8:00GTM) via „ UPS Express fast lane “ will be shipped at the next day from Germany.
    Orders with items which are not in stock will be shipped after the missing items have arrived. A partial shipment of orders is not possible.

    net order value UPS Express Saver UPS Express UPS Express fast lane
    2 to 3 days 1 to 2 days mostly 1 day
    0* to 300 USD 6 USD 8 USD 12 USD
    > 300 USD free free 4 USD



    So from the looks of it... under 300 dollars pays a flat 8 dollars for 1 day.
    They had a UPS EXPRESS, which costed 4 dollars more, but its whited out.
    So im guessing its no longer available?

    But its whited out.. and i only found it by highlighting the area and accidentally running across it.

    AT's store is scary.. there like frozen.. they got almost everything... which makes them scary... because i'll start off at 10... then it will go 20... then 40.. then 80... by the time im done checking out... i'll probably be at 300.

    How is it $16? Mine was either $8 or $6 depending on how quickly I wanted it. Now, I was being charged tax, but that wasn't shipping.

    I'm not sure what the deal was... Probably user error, but I could only check 48hour or 72hour shipping @ checkout. 48hour was $18 and 72 hour was $16. Just as well I guess, because like NaeKuh, I start with a couple items and end up at $300. lol

    Edit: this was at the .us site:
    Code:

    Please choose the desired type of dispatch and the corresponding method of payment for your order.

    how are u getting charged tax for a store located outside of the US?

    The only way u could be charged a sales tax is, if the store was based stateside, and have a business permit in your state.

    Which is why i cant do business with newegg, unless im desperate, and usually buy all my stuff from amazon.com.

    yeah... which is why i try to avoid large stores like frozen, ppc, and AT... lol... there is no way im going to get away with a purchase sub 100. :\

    Yeh, it is something we are working with but it does require high order volumes to get the better pricing.

    I'm sure you'd get a higher volume with lower shipping I'd easily spend 100-200€ a pop, but not at 20€ for S&H

    Btw, you might want to let someone over at Aquatuning know that your Polish translation during the checkout phase is a bit...off. You know where the checkbox to accept the terms and conditions is? It makes reference to Aquatuning GmbH "w upadłości likwidacyjnej", which in Polish translates to as a company in bankruptcy liquidation - not very reassuring to your prospective customers

    I am not sure why I am getting charged tax as that eats up the discount and then some. I do appreciate the effort though, it's nice to see a retailer doing something, now if you had the Aquacomputer controller in stock (not your fault) I would be making an order. Hopefully you will get some soon.

    how can shipping from Germany to the US be cheaper than German to Greece? My cheapest option is 17 euros (tried with 1 fan and 10 fans) and its not even the NEXT DAY delivery option...
