Thanks! Got a killer deal on some merino boxers and socks. It sure pays to wait for these sales to come along.

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?

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.

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.

Maybe we should all email Icebreaker (with no reference to the BPL website), expressing our thanks and suggesting they do this again, real soon!

42% Icebreaker Discount is STILL ON on 02/16/2009 16:12:43 MST Print View

Hey everybody,
Coupon code "kiwi2" is working right now for 42% off.

EDIT: I don't know when it expires but it worked a second ago.

Jason, you are so right. on 02/16/2009 22:21:08 MST Print View

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?

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.

Overblown Inventory on 02/17/2009 03:09:54 MST Print View

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.

I figured i'd take some more of it off their hands.

Coupons still works as of last night.
