For anyone interested in the mini poker chips (reviewed here:Mini clay poker chips on the cheap (review)), the web site has a 10% off sale going on through 5/11/2014. The discount code is "mom10".

Edit: the direct link to the mini poker chips is http://www.discountpokershop.com/clearance-300pc-gram-suited.... It is in the thread linked above but it was suggested to place a direct link here.

Re: Discount Poker Shop (Mini Poker Chips) Mother's Day discount
Someone else gave this tip before that the shipping jump is at 5 sets, so up to 4 sets should give you the best shipping, if you need or want that many sets or if others go in on it with you.

Re: Discount Poker Shop (Mini Poker Chips) Mother's Day discount
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they have a rotating sequence of 10% off codes that exist throughout most of the year. These are awesome chips (I have 2 sets) but if you miss the 'MOM10' discount then you probably won't need to wait long until the next 10% off code gets circulated. Unless they became stingy with the codes since the last time I checked.

I bought these last December in a similar sale and just wanted to say that I am very happy with them. They have a very nice weight to them despite being so small.

I believe you are correct, this is one of those essentially "perpetual" hot deals... like LdV for $9.99 from CSI used to be

also correct imho... for me, fedex ground always cheapest with...

1 set, + $9.30 ship
2 sets, + $13.20 ship = $6.60/set
3 sets, + $17.40 ship = $5.80/set
4 sets, + $21.28 ship = $5.32/set
5 sets, + $30.88 ship = $6.18/set

these look like they ship from CA and I'm in NH (cross country)... those closer likely will actually get a good deal, for me shipping still breaks the deal

base poster, btw some info you might want to include in subject/etc can be found in the pinned thread

Re: Discount Poker Shop (Mini Poker Chips) Mother's Day discount
Yes I'm in Ca and the shipping jump isn't a lot for me. For 3 sets it's $8.60 shipping to 4 sets at $9.14 shipping and 5 sets about $17 almost double.

In Ca world it would work out as
3 sets, + $8.60 ship = $2.86/set
4 sets, + $9.14 ship = $2.28/set
5 sets, + $17 ship = $3.40/set

I guess when you break it down per unit it seems much different but the $9.14 to the $17 seems like a jump.

Another way for you to look at it could be
1 set, + $9.30 ship
2 sets, + $13.20 ship = an increase of $3.90
3 sets, + $17.40 ship = an increase of $4.20
4 sets, + $21.28 ship = an increase of $3.72
5 sets, + $30.88 ship = an increase of $9.60

Clearly there's a jump between 4 sets and 5 but you have your option on how to present the data.

It looks like they have a coupon code active for one week out of every month. Sometimes it's %5, sometimes it's %10 (though the last 3 months it has been %10.
I got these chips a few months ago (naturally it was only a 5% discount period), and I love them.

I was under the impression that the continuous, rolling discount was 5%. That's the discount I got in March.

Ah, that could be. So everyone checking the site gets a 5% "discount" and they email out 10% discounts once a month.

These chips are so cheap that they don't need a discount. They're really one of my best gaming buys, and I take a set wherever I play. Since they're so cheap, you can buy multiple sets to make a mix that you'll be happiest with.

I can't find where to enter the discount code on the site (paypal checkout). The shipping is $9.30 on these, so not quite the ten buck steal.

I don't know about Paypal checkout. If you use a credit card directly, there is a place for the discount code.

Yes, shipping is expensive; these chips are not light. If you read the linked thread, you'll see that they charge basically the same shipping for up to 4 sets. Find some friends to split an order (that's what I did).

even splitting shipping on 4 it still comes out to ~ $15/set

maybe it hasn't come up often but I got my 300 piece 11.5 gram set for $20 shipped... paying $15 for a set (and having to try to get 3 others in on an order) for me at least isn't a hot deal.. especially when this 10% vs. usual 5% simple saves 50 cents a set

ymmv

There might be better deals on 11.5g chips, but not on these minis. A lot of people, myself included, would prefer these smaller chips for games as they take up less table space. Personal preference though.

In fact, the mini clay chips are really hard to find at all, much less for a price like this. Hot deal IMO.
