  1. I know this coupon was available last year, and they have it again this year. http://www.itasca-mantrap.com/pdf/nov2010.pdf On page 2 of this newsletter there is a coupon for $3.00 off a string of GE LED lights.
  2. I came across this deal on slickdeals.com, and thought I would share this with the PC community. Lowe's has GE 50-Count StayBright LED Micro strings in cool white and multi color for $3.33 per string. Cool White: http://www.lowes.com/pd_20646-25734-90012LO_4294801364_4294937087_?productId=3093061&Ns=p_product_price%7C0&pl=1&currentURL=%2Fpl_String%2BLights_4294801364_4294937087_%3FNs%3Dp_product_price%7C0 Multi Color: http://www.lowes.com/pd_20876-25734-90015LO_4294801364_4294937087_?productId=3093071&Ns=p_product_price|0&pl=1&currentURL=%2Fpl_String%2BLights_4294801364_4294937087_%3FNs%3Dp_product_price%7C0 It looks like you have to order these online and then you can pick them up at a Lowe's near near. They do give you the ability to check inventory online so you know how many they have at your store.
  3. I was also charged shipping this year and was supposed to get shipping for free since I participated in last year’s pre-order. I mentioned this to him on several times and got the typical "I'll get that taken care of ASAP" response. Fortunately shipping for my order was only $13, so I'm probably going to just write that off. It would take way too much time an aggravation to get my 13 bucks back. I'll just be taking my business elsewhere from now on.
  4. If you want Travis to call you back call him and leave a message (I don't think anyone ever answers the phone there) saying that you are interested in ordering some of his lights but you have a few questions. You will usually have a call back within a few hours.
  5. I just received my order yesterday, so it appears that he is still working on getting these orders out.
  6. I have yet to receive my order, so I'm waiting patiently. According to the website my order is "Ready to Ship", it has been on this status for about 2 or 3 weeks. I also contacted him on Thursday and have not heard back as of yet, so I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt until next week.
  7. Not to sound like a broken record, but I think that Creative Displays has the best LED's available for the money. I have been using many of their strings for 3 years have had almost no failures, and Nebraska winters can be kind of brutal. I also would agree that waiting until his pre-sale will save you quite a bit of money. And Paul is close, he is in Kansas City so you can save some on shipping. If you ask nicely he would probably even let you go pick them up!
  8. I think that right now PLUS is kind of on hold until the economy really starts to turn around. I was really disappointed when PLUS 09 was cancelled and hope that it returns soon!
  9. I have to agree, the prices for this pre-sale are a lot more attractive then the past few years. I have kept the price sheets for the 2008 and 2009 pre-sales just so I could see the trends in LED light pricing from year to year. As an example this was the past pre-sale pricing for 50 count C6 Warm White lights. 2008 - $9.43 per string or $113.16 per 12 string case 2009 - $9.50 per string or $114.00 per 12 string case 2010 - $7.50 per string or $90.00 per 12 string case

    Montana Displays

    I live about a mile from Boys Town and there is no Mantana around here...
  11. For those of you that are fortunate enough to live in an area that has a Menards store, they are running their Christmas Decor Sale now through November 15. The ad can be found online here: http://menards.inserts2online.com
  12. I will step in and say that I do use timers even for my Light-O-Rama controllers. I've had the timers for some time going back to when most of my display was static. I just feel that the less time there is live power running outside the better. Besides how many people remember the snail in the controller thread from a couple of years ago? For those that don't here it is: http://talk.planetchristmas.com/showthread.php?t=17953 (Too bad the pictures are no longer there, those were really amazing!) I just feel that turning off the power to everything reduces the chance of something like this happening. Just my 2 cents worth.
  13. Look at the Highlights of 2007 Video at http://andrewschristmas.com/video.htm. I think that this may be the video you are looking for.
  14. I'm in the same position as well, have not received my order or shipping confirmation yet. It is nice to know that I'm not the only one still waiting.
  15. It looks like Spirit Halloween has these online, I have not had the chance to check in their stores to see if they have them there. http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/light-show-timer-with-sound/
