I went to the site, but didn't see any indication of a sale. Do you have to be a member or something like that?Jan 30, 2009 at 11:23 am #1474071
Jim W.BPL Member
No, just put "kiwi" in the coupon code box during checkout. This is on the payment page after you have specified shipping address and billing address. You can put the coupon code in and have it update before putting in your credit card info, even though they're on the same page.Jan 30, 2009 at 11:28 am #1474072

Right, right. Just like it says in the original post. Sorry about that…should have read more carefully.
Guess I just got excited by the prospect of all that cheap Merino.

I got several pieces. I thought the shipping was relatively reasonable, on par with about everywhere else. $11 and change on a $127 order.Jan 31, 2009 at 9:02 pm #1474395
Maybe we should all email Icebreaker (with no reference to the BPL website), expressing our thanks and suggesting they do this again, real soon!Feb 16, 2009 at 3:12 pm #1478270
@pa_jayLocale: on the move....
Coupon code "kiwi2" is working right now for 42% off.
EDIT: I don't know when it expires but it worked a second ago.Feb 16, 2009 at 9:21 pm #1478374
This is absolutely the best place to buy Icebreaker on the internet right now. I recommend the Atlas short sleeve and half-zips, in ink or black, which can do double duty under a sweater for civilian use.
Note that if you see "available in store", it means you can't order it; i.e., it isn't available at Icebreaker.
Interestingly, no email reached me yet about this promotion, though it may come tomorrow. How did you find out, Jason?Feb 16, 2009 at 11:10 pm #1478388
BTW, this is another indication that, at least in the short term, the world is going down in flames. I'm resolved to go right along with it. One doesn't want to think too closely about why Icebreaker is doing this, but remember that warm clothing will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no clothing, or something like that.Feb 17, 2009 at 2:09 am #1478395

It probably indicates that Icebreaker got caught out with their 8-10 month lead in on production and now have a lot of inventory that they can't sell at their standard prices.
Their options for next year are to run a smaller inventory and or drop their prices. My guess is that they'll need to do both. There will be even less buyers next year, and having offered such deep discounts this year, those buyers will expect it again next year.
The problem with dropping inventory is keeping your suppliers happy and on board.Feb 18, 2009 at 5:54 am #1478631
I figured i'd take some more of it off their hands.
Coupons still works as of last night.

I ordered a bunch of stuff on January 28, and is has yet to show up, and my emails to icebreaker go unanswered. FWIWFeb 18, 2009 at 6:33 am #1478634
Rich, my experience during the first sale was definitely better. I placed two orders; Icebreaker let me know one item was out of stock, and refunded the cost. The two shipments, though they were sent by Fedex ground, actually came by Fedex 2nd day, everything in perfect shape. Have ordered more in the second sale, and will let you know if any problems develop.Feb 18, 2009 at 8:35 am #1478665
My first order definitely took a long time. I received the final part of it YESTERDAY, so it takes about 3 weeks max. I ordered more last night and i'll report back when I get mine. Give it some time. Good Luck!

I ordered several items, but they responded later with an email to advise some items were out of stock. Turned out to be not such a great of a deal for me, since the large shipping fee could not be leveraged over all my items.Feb 18, 2009 at 9:59 am #1478685

Quote from Dana 2/18: "Coupons still works as of last night."
Really? I tried two days after the "24 hour" sale and it didn't work. I just tried again and got the message "Coupon Information ! Coupon is no longer valid, it has been deactivated." That was using "kiwi" or "KIWI" or "Kiwi". When I used a made up text string the message was "Unknown coupon code."
If there's another code please do tell!Feb 18, 2009 at 10:49 am #1478700

The code is "kiwi2". Hopefully it is still valid(it worked for me on Monday night).
