Hi everyone. It's time for another group buy. Many of you have participated in my Oakley group buys before and I thank you for your continued support. Some details have changed since I last did a group buy, in particular, I am now asking for a deposit prior to ordering. Please read the info carefully below to ensure we all understand the process/procedures of this group buy.
I have also had some issues with orders being delayed in the past however my Oakley rep now assures me that these issues are rectified. The last order I sent took 4 weeks to arrive from order to deliver.
I used to have an online cycling business through which I made many different contacts. My business closed/ended in 2011 but I still have access to all of my suppliers and their wholesale prices. On Friday, 20th December I am sending an order off to my Oakley rep to get a few pairs of sunnies for my cycling mates here in Kerang, Victoria, and thought I'd once again open the offer up to the BNA community. I'll be ordering them from the US and the prices are usually 30-50% lower than Australian RRP, however with the falling Aussie dollar the prices may not be as good as they were in the past. If you'd like to order anything, or if you would like a price on anything, please let me know exactly what you're after via PM or email ( [email protected] ) and I'll get back to you. The price I give you will include postage within Australia, but you are more than welcome to come to Kerang (about 300km north of Melbourne) to pick them up once they arrive.
I can get most sunglasses and lenses, but I cannot get customised sunglasses. Most items will be here within the designated time line, however items on backorder may take considerably longer and there are usually a few pairs that I cannot get due to them becoming unavailable during the ordering process.
After sending the order away they will take about 6 weeks to arrive from the US. I have made this offer to BNA members a few of times now and the turnaround can vary from 2-3 weeks to 8-10 weeks depending on availability. With Christmas, New Years and a US winter, I'd expect this order to arrive late January or early February.
Before I send your order I will require a deposit of $50. After they arrive I'll require the balance of your payment by bank deposit, cheque, money order or PayPal. I won't be making any money off your orders at all so if you need to pay via PayPal I will be asking you to pay a few dollars extra to cover the relevant fees.
You will need to go to the http://www.oakley.com/ page and choose United States of America as the "region" to see what I have access too. You can use the Australian Oakley page if you'd prefer however each site has slightly different items and the US generally has a larger range.
To calculate the prices, I:
- Take the US cost price
- Add the postage price to get them to my address in Australia.
- Add the cost of the box and bubblewrap that I send them to you in.
- Add the postage cost from Kerang, VIC to you.
For cheaper items this makes the cost quite similar to the US retail price, especially now that the dollar is declining, however these prices are still significantly lower than Australian retail prices (on most occasions).
Any questions etc, please contact me.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
The procedure for ordering is as follows:
1. Find the items you're interested in on the Oakley website.
2. Send me the SKU# from these items either via PM or by replying to this post.
3. I will send you the prices for your items. These prices will including postage within Australia.
4. If you agree on the price and would like me to order them for you, you'll need to send a $50 deposit to my bank account. I'll send you these details at the appropriate time. I'll hold this deposit until your order arrives or until your order is cancelled (due to unavailable items), and then I'll refund your deposit.
5. When your order arrives I'll send you an email requesting you to pay the balance, and I'll then ask for your postage details then too.
6. Then once your balance is received I'll post your items to you.
7. If you don't like any of the above then please don't waste my time. I don't make a cent from doing this and am doing it because I love cycling and love helping my fellow cyclists. Please keep this in mind.
Thanks for the question. Unfortunately I can't get prescription lenses but I can get frames that you could get your optometrist to put the lenses into. For example, I have ordered a few pairs of Crosslink frames for people to put their lenses into.
I've just lost a set of prescription Oakleys. Good timing on the group buy. Will be looking to pick up some frames. Will advise within a couple of days.

Hey, is it possible to get an M-frame FRAME only? I have several lenses sitting around after the old frames cracked and split, would be great to be able to use them again.
Don't care what colour, boring black would be fine. I need frame/earsocks and nose piece but can't find a SKU for this on the website - does it exist?
Whether you can help me or not, great effort doing this again for BNA members.
No worries. Let me know the SKU# for the pair that you're after and I'll get you a price.
They were posted from the US on the 22nd, so should be here by the end of the week (31st Jan) or early in the following week. I'll send you a message when they land in Australia so you can finalise your payment.
