Van Engelen has started their 20% off sale. They often have even better prices later in November.

John Scheepers, the branch of Van Engelen that sells smaller quantities, has some bulbs for 30% off.

Van Engelen's site states they are doing their final 20% off sale. Is anyone thinking they might not be doing their bigger sale this year?
Scheepers now has some bulbs at 40% off.

Looks like van engelen is staying at 20% off..... still good prices, but not 30% off great prices!
I resisted the van engelen sale but fell for the Brent and Becky clearance. 50% off if you''re interested :)
Let me advise on delivery times of orders placed at this time in late fall. I have placed orders with B&B, Scheepers, and Van Engelen and by far Van E. is the best. They have never missed shipping out the same day if you place an order, either the night before online, or early in the morning. When I see a warm spell window and I want bulbs I order from them to arrive before the warm spell is over. If you order from Scheepers they will take a week to arrive. Similar with Brent & Beckys - they never get bulbs out that quick.
I know Van. E's has $50.00 min., but if you enter a min. $35.00 with Scheepers, by the time you pay tax and shipping you might as well pay the $50.00 min. with Van. E. to get fast results. It's just not worth waiting a whole week from the other guys....who wants to be planting bulbs when the temperature goes back down to the 30's!? :-)
Paula, your post was not at all helpful. I received my Brent and Becky order and one of my most wanted items was missing so I thought of this post and I thought of your experiences and I thought there would be enough of a warm weather window to get another quick order of bulbs in!
So this morning I ordered. I'm looking forward to a quick delivery, and the shipping Weather looks ok, unfortunately the days I'll be using for planting look extremely cold, 30 degrees would be a pleasure compared to the 7 degree lows that are forecast.
And I was being so good!
B&B shipped my order out the same day, and I got the bulbs just before a day of pouring rain and plummeting temperatures. I had to emphasize that the order had to be shipped immediately or otherwise canceled. B&B was very accommodating in this case. However, the shipping charges are on the amount before the discount, so in effect, one pays 20% shipping. Ouch!
I ordered Saturday afternoon (they work mon- fri I believe, so no one was there for the weekend) my order was filled Monday, I got the ups pickup confirmation Monday afternoon and the box just showed up on my doorstep Tuesday night Awesome turnaround and the bulbs look great!
