I was thinking - for the American members of this forum, you often seem to get good deals on bulk buying some of your favourite blends. Would it be worth a few of you who live in the same State to club together for a really big order? You might be able to get the price per pound down even more that way. Just a thought . . . :)

Not really. Factor in individual shipping to each member, at say 2 pounds of bulk, around $8 shipping per person. At most places, if you buy about $100 worth, you get free shipping. The biggest discount I have seen is 10% for a quantity of 25 or 50 units. You would save about $8 between two pounds, if everyone reached the 50 unit mark.
Logistically, it isn't worth it to save a buck or two.

That would work only in limited circumstances, as the guys pointed out in the previous post. If you had a pipe club and had even 4 or 5 guys who liked a blend, you could pull it off,since you could have one guy order, and distribute shares at a get-together. They'd have to live close together, though.
