A Hill Yessir, sorry about not being available. I have been in NYC this week for meetings on and was literally busy all day without convient internet access to boot. I know we've messaged back and forth today and your package has arrived though, so this is a bit late to post here!

Thanks again and enjoy,

A Hill I agree with what you've said, and my initial thought was there are many varieties of grad school with night class, executive MBAs etc so it would be simpler to exclude it. I also should change the Undergrad to full time UGrad.

If someone is a full time Grad student going for something like their PhD in something and eating ramen 3 or more nights a week you might just qualify, but many grad students I know also live quite well, so it is a bit of a 50-50 split.

I may remove the high school category, but I know that I mostly funded my own hobby while I started with birthday and christmas money as well as random jobs, and other things, so I know that money can be tight for younger people. Plus the fact that it is an unusual hobby and the prices are not understood by most people. With that said, that is why I tried to distinguish it is for STUDENTS not their parents. So if the paypal account is their parent's money I may refund them and say this voids the policy. With that said under 18 you can't have a paypal account so it is a bit complicated...

With that said, I'll see how it works and tune it so it works the best it can and isn't taken advantage of completely. I may only do this randomly a few times a year, I'm not sure yet. Right now I'm going to see what happens as the weekend comes and go from there.

macclellan That's great that you're offering this.

Why exclude grad students? Just curious. Grad school tuition is more expensive than undergrad across the board, and grad students often have less or no parental financial support compared to undergrads (and high school students have no living expenses).

Student Discount Prices.

I have been persuaded to offer student pricing so here is the deal.

This is for Undergraduate students and High School Students only.

Not parents of students.

You will need to verify that you are a student with me personally.

This offer is only valid for up to one set per person.

How will you prove you're a student?
  • Go on facebook
  • find the "Rumford Aquatics" page and become a fan
  • Post something intelligent
  • I will send you a message to confirm your identity.
  • School email or photo of school ID may be required as well.

IF you do not like the above rules, you may have access to the prices but must buy five complete sets or more as one person, so if you set up a group buy for your club that is fine, but I will deal with one person only. This will also have an additional shipping fee that is more than normal due to the quantity and size.

Here are the prices.
Pinsettes $20
Spring Scissors $25
Wave Scissors $25
Nude Scissors $35

Shipping $10 USPS Priority.

Prices are subject to change at any time, and there is no guarantee this will last more than an hour.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I do listen.
