A Startling Discovery, or: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Box

Good news, everyone!

We here at Brine & Dine HQ have made a startling discovery that we believe will shake this project to its very core:  Our flat rate shipping boxes can and will accommodate up to 3 jars of sauerkraut in addition to any other rewards being sent!  This means that if you have pledged $15 for shipping, you may pledge for an additional 1-2 more jars of kraut with no additional shipping cost incurred

PLUS, because we're so close to the deadline, so grateful for the support we've received over the course of this project, and doing such a big collective face-palm at not realizing this sooner, we're going to knock $5 off the total cost for anyone who pledges to receive 3 jars.  We'll also extend this $5 off 3 jars offer to those who've pledged for pick-up.

It looks something like this:

  • If you pledged $40 for a jar and t-shirt, you may pledge an additional $15 for one or $25 for 2 more jars at no additional shipping cost ($55-65 total). 
  • If you pledged $30 for a jar, you may pledge an additional $15 for one or $25 for 2 more jars at no additional shipping cost ($45-55 total).

So.  We're 55 hours away from completing this project and $845 short of our goal of getting everyone who has pledged above $25 with a brand-new, unique-to-backers tote bag. 

We're hoping that this update has blown the lid off a long-simmering suspicion here on Kickstarter  regarding the price of shipping live cultures and senior Brine and Dine officials' ability to effectively stack, sort, or pack items that will create an uproar s oloud that we're catapulted past our goal.  Alternatively, we could just ask you to share this information with your friends, family and networks for one last push towards the finish line and that $8,000 goal.

As always, with a deep appreciation for your support,

Brine and Dine

      I'm pledging more but staying with the $25 reward to get more sauerkraut. Congrats on reaching your goal.
