Here's my thoughts and opinions on this. It's challenging to create a sale for veterans at X discount and then it can be seen as disrespectful (it fees disrespectful for me) to then offer a promotion for BF/CM a week later at a greater discount discount.

Iconic Formulations always offers Military Discounts at the following link:

Can't remember the industry ever having veterns day sales. It's about black Friday. Not sure why people get disappointed by something that never happens.

I haven't seen prices skyrocket from brands generally supported on the forum. I can't speak for any other company, but material costs have all gone up (some by up to 50%), min wage (in CA - where I am) has gone up about 30% in the last 3 years. Leases have all jumped (40% where I am over the last 6 years). shipping costs have taken a pretty good hike, etc...a good question, how are companies absorbing these costs while still keeping retail prices relatively constant? That also means that there's not as much room for those crazy sales.

I've wondered how supplement prices have been so stable myself; for example, I really only remember the price of whey protein going up about 5 bucks in the last ten years while gas, minimum wage, rent and everything else had exploded. There has to be a breaking point coming where the only way it will make sense to sell a product is direct to the customer to keep prices down.
