    I'm getting ready to bite the bullet and order us a shiny new bator...an EARLY Christmas gift. [​IMG] All of the incubators appear to be on sale directly from Brinsea's site at 20% off. Does anyone have any experience with better sales than this? We don't want to miss out on saving $100, but if I see a 30% or more sale in the next month or two, I'll cry! haha

    I've already had to talk myself out of and back into this thing about 158 times...[​IMG]

    I hope you get a reply to this. I am wondering the same question or also, if this is the "normal" amount off when they run a sale, how often does it run? I don't want to miss the opportunity either. [​IMG]

    I never EVER saw any anywhere cheaper that the Brinsea site.

    Get it with the turner, it's worth the investment.

    I [​IMG] my Octagon 20!!

    I've purchased *ahem* a few incubators in the past 3 months, including the Brinsea Octagon 20 Advance EX - which I just loaded yesterday with the first batch.

    Before I bought it, I looked everywhere and the only place cheaper was a used one on eBay, which quickly rose to more than the sale price on the Brinsea site. I too have never seen any prices lower than at the Brinsea web-site itself.

    Go for it!

    Not trying to steal the thread but I am wondering if they have this $100 off sale often? I don't want to miss an opportunity but it is supposed to be a Christmas gift and if he buys it for me now, I know I will be using it looooong before Christmas! [​IMG]

    That is EXACTLY what's going on here...he said it was going to be a Christmas gift, but why wait if we can save $100? lol I'm going to wait to use it til after Christmas, though. I swear! [​IMG]

    I know there is NO WAY I could wait to use it. [​IMG] I read another thread on here about hatching different grocery store eggs and was looking at the eggs in Walmart yesterday. I noticed that they have cage free eggs and was tempted to buy some to see if they are fertile. Since mine are not laying yet, I was thinking I could do a test run on those! [​IMG]

    So is my $100 off the best bet, then? If these things go for $250 right before Christmas, someone has some 'splainin' to do!
