You know, at some point, I feel like It's going to be free to shop at The Butchers, as they keep increasing the discount. This is probably the fourth time I've seen them offer a coupon.

Still. It's a good discount!! Coupon expires in a year.

You have until Sunday evening to make up your mind and buy-in.

pretty bad reviews from RFD people on the Group Buy thread -- way overpriced most said.

All these deals make me a bit worried. They've had 4-5 deals since December I believe.

On the other hand I found the $40 for $100 to be decent value, and this is even better.

But this makes me wonder if pricing is increasing, if they have financial issues. They can't be making money on a deal like this when Webpiggy takes a cut. If they are their markups are incredible and they have a very good deal with the farms.

I recently used my 100$ coupon there from the last deal. There's no doubt that their prices on the steep side; the Rib Eye steaks I got were 63.91$/kg, as opposed to, say, 35.25$ for the Organic Baretta (sp?) Farm ones at Loblaws. That said, they were some of the best steaks I've ever tasted in my life, and way better than the supermarket equivalent. So I guess it comes down to personal preference, and whether you think it's worth paying extra for quality. With the coupon, it probably comes out to roughly the same, anyways.

Hmm, I wonder what regular pricing the butcher uses for $50 vouchers as opposed to $40 vouchers... He probably has a spreadsheet to do correct conversions. And again, you will never see price tags on anything he sells.

Stay away from this deal.

Does anyone know what happens if this place closes before we use our vouchers? Would be get a refund from either WebPiggy or from Visa? I have to assume they are doing this for a quick cash infusion. It doesn't make sense how a little shop can survive continuing to offer these deals, even if they inflate their prices. I see this as a good exit strategy for a retailer... especially since the deals keep getting better and larger.... Is the consumer protected at all?

They do have a second location that opened recently and have been around for a long time.

This was one of my concerns also. I think we are fairly safe but you never know. I plan to contact webpiggy to ask them if refunds are available to unsatisfied customers.
