I’ve sent off two big orders to ScanCafe recently. The first was a box of my Dad’s old slides (about 600) and the second was a bunch of my Dad’s old negatives (including both 35mm and medium format). I sent the second box in while they were having a 25% sale, which saved me a substantial amount of money, given how many negatives I had.
I’ve got one more box of negatives to scan. I was going to wait until ScanCafe had another sale, but I just got an e-mail from them saying that they’re going to raise their prices in May. Of course, they don’t say which prices or by how much. Hmm, now I’m not sure if I should wait or not. I also just figured out that they post their sales to Twitter at http://twitter.com/scancafedeals so I think maybe I’ll just keep an eye on that and wait for the next 25% off sale. As long as they’re not raising their prices by more than 25%, that would still be a good deal.
