    Well hello everyone! Reading through all this.....frustration is understandable. I don't tweet, never will (I'm not telling anybody what I had for dinner and nobody cares what I'm doin)! I do fb, because of my kiddos. I don't understand the no e-mail notification for those who don't fb or tweet. I would like to think V4L is figuring all this social media stuff out and realizes now that they missed a key segment of their longtime customers. Maybe (hoping and praying) that they'll do something to make it up. Patience maybe, just maybe, will pay off. Oh yeah, I feel like my "buds" are on this forum not the new one!!! AND I still have an old phone plugged into the phone line...for the storms! lol

    I understand folks frustration with the fb/twitter thing, and I agree it was a miscalculated move on their part. Like anyone else, I wish they'd continue to offer really large sales constantly, but I have seen (and seen it noted here) a pretty fair distribution of smaller sales and specials pretty frequently.

    My orders have also dropped off in line with the dropoff in sales, but that seems like a pretty obvious result, and one they must be accounting for in their plan. I'm not sure what their plan is, but mine is simply to stay stocked up and just wait for the sales; they may be farther between, but as long as there is a decent sale once or twice a month, it's just a matter of planning a little better for me.

    I do wish they had remembered to post the special in other places, but everyone makes mistakes and I will remain a loyal V4L customer due to their excellent CS and the 'family'.

    I think they are making up for it big time right now, I'm sure it was just an oversight. They are forced to market where people are paying attention, can't blame them for that at all. I too am curious how successful this approach will be, tradeoff of buying more stuff more frequently due to sales vs buying less stuff less frequently at a higher profit margins. They will find their sweet spot, or keep changing it up, which is what I think their strategy is.

    Well, I'd love to stay and chat, but need to get back to my cart to order a whole bunch more stuff I really don't need but is on sale :-)

    Wader, did you send them to St Louis for the world series? Bet I could send you some of ours!
