I'm a late backer so I can't post in the KS. I know this isn't going to make everyone happy but EGG pushed out an update saying the production costs were cheaper than expected and offered everyone $15 off their next KS you back. I wager this is why they had no qualms selling it for less on their site than we paid in the KS. Of course you have to back something else from them to get this benefit which is going to stink for some. Anyway I just wanted to make this connection as I see it being questioned in the comments.

Thanks for the heads up, I forgot all about that update, 10 updates ago.

Update #11 wrote:
In other news we reached out to new manufacturers for a more competitive quote as we were not 100% happy with the original quote. In doing so, we were able to get costs down for production and as such we want to pass savings on to our backers in the form of a shipping coupon on a future Kickstarter project. We are offering $15 off shipping for the next Eagle-Gryphon Kickstarter that you back within the next 18 months. This is valid for both League Members and Honorary League Members. We hope that this helps alleviate some of your disappointment about the stickers.

It should be applied automatically - when I backed Escape Plan it was discounted from the shipping.

Ruth mentioned that they are keeping track of which backers still haven't used it. Keep in mind that it'll probably not be at the KS pledge stage, only later during the pledge manager.
