    I was a little disappointed as well. I will admit, the staple supplements, Orange Triad, OxiOmega and the Greens were great...rest of the stuff didn't do it for me...also noticed there was a 'cheat' factor going on where interesting products like Fusion 7, Myofusion and VPX Anarchy, the terrible flavors you wouldn't be happy with were listed at the sale price and everything else was full price. That was the kicker.

    To be honest, nutra's previous sales have been much much better than the so-called "godfather of sales'. There was hardly anything to be had on this last sale and to boot that there was only 2 rounds. Ehhh...hate to complain, but the nutraplanet forum has been extremely slow and no talk of anything coming up in the near future. Its almost like its lost its luster to an extent. Thats just me though. To each his own. Im waiting

    Hate to complain? Really?

    I most certainly understand if you feel disappointment, you are completely entitled to that. However, let's at least be real here. Please refer back to the week 2 of the sale thread. You uttered the same sentence about hating to complain. it seems quite the opposite...no?

    Agreed. Hating to complain doesn't start threads like this.

    If you're not happy with a sale then just don't buy anything. Seems simple enough. Nutraplanet doesn't owe you anything. They don't NEED to put anything on sale at all. Ever. Nor does any other place.

    I don't understand what this was supposed to accomplish...just seems like a slap in the face to be honest.

    Yeah it seemed good for some but not for all. its wasnt what i expected and i didnt even buy anything, on the other hand someone else might of got a killer deal on the supps he wanted. Its just how it is, i was very dissappointed but they cant please everyone. I hope a good sale comes soon for APS and a few others at nutra!!! HOOK us UP!

    First of all, yes, i did express sentiment over the sale in the previous thread. And maybe a better choice of words rather than saying "hating to complain" should have been used. To be honest, im not complaining, im just reiterating what my and many other's opinion is. The sale was hyped up as being the end all of sales, but really didnt compare to some of your previous awesome sales. Look, i understand you cant make everyone happy, i do understand that. Did i purchase something on the last sale....i certainly did. Will i continue to purchase from nutra....i certainly will. All i was saying is that the items for sale werent all that great and a lot of frequent posters here at AM agree 100%. Again, sorry to seem like i was complaining, but was just a little discouraged by the big hype of "godfather of all sales", that for the most part was not so "godfather-like". Just got my hopes up i guess. I was like a kid on xmas wanting a playstation 3 and i got a friggin atari.

    Thread wasnt trying to "accomplish" anything. Was thinking perhaps it might spur on the other "rounds" that were I and many others thought were coming down the pipes. No slap in the face intended.

    I thought the sale had a lot of good things in it but I was not in a position to spend a whole lot so I got very little. That said, if there were some items I wanted in it I probably would have bought more. The problem that any retailer faces is two fold: what does the consumer want (sales numbers and metrics don't always get it right) and do the manufacturers agree to drastic price cuts? If they don't, then that isn't going to appear on sale. Sucks but is is the truth. NP is a good company and they continue to bring good items to the masses, no complaints from me.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    As I said, you are entitled to your opinion. Many enjoyed the sale, and others liked it some etc... TO make blanket statements like you are doing is downright silly imo

    Either way...it just seemed like there is a constant for you, which is complaining. Again, it does not bother anyone...I just felt that it was a tad redundant.

    To each his own I suppose

    Just because i brought up my opinion on the godfather sale now means im a constant complainer? Wow, talk about blanket statement.

    Again, ive ordered from nutra more times than most can count. I'll order again. Ive referred at least 10 people to switch their allegiances to nutra. To each his own.

    Of course they're going to hype a sale.... And I picked up a bunch during the sale. Guess it depends what you're looking for, but very happy with my haul.

    Not much to complain about to be honest, give feedback on what you'd like to see on sale, sure, but don't bite the hand that feeds...

    Personally I was very happy with the 1st round...all the Controlled Lab stuff was fantastic! The Genomyx Slin Sane & Protocol deals were also great. I mean 2nd round wasn't as fantastic as the 1st round but still had some good deals i.e. Lean Pro8 & Pump-Bol.

    Overall can't complain...everything I wanted was onsale believe it or not.
