Does ALN have plans for users to purchase gift certificates? I would definitely buy some and pass along to friends/family. I also know that they would purchase GCs for me since hardly anyone knows what to buy me.

Actually, in all of the chaos of trying to get this company going and growing we had not really considered that. It is a good idea and one we will definitely consider.

For now, if you give me a ring on my cell phone I could create an account for you that would have a credit on it. We could work something out. If you are interested, just PM me and we will discuss it further.

Excellent news. I have friends/family with birthdays coming up in the near future (including my own) so I will be PMing you regarding that in the next few weeks. However, if I want them to purchase GCs for me, what would be an acceptable process or would that just not be feasible at this point?

One other question: Are there any plans to ship sample packets with orders? For example, if I order the Vanilla Nitrean can I request a small sample of the chocolate to "try before I buy?"

Perhaps this can be an exclusive ALN Insider perk for frequent buyers when you begin introducing either new products and/or additional flavors to your Nitrean/Opticen lines.

You can have your friends or relatives call me with their credit card information, or simply mail me a check and I will create an account for you. For example, if they send us $50 and reference your name (without buying anything) I will keep a record of it and you will have $50 credit to be used as you like. All you need do is then PM me here or call with what product you would like.

Next time you order make a note and I can send you a sample of something else. As we do not have samples per se, I will just put some in a bag for you to try.

Perfect. A link to this thread has been mailed to my wife. I'm sure she'll be able to take the hint (subtleness IS one of my strengths). ;)

April 6 isn't too far away!

Thank you.

this is a good idea. people are always asking me "what do you want this year" and I'm like "I dunno...this was so much fun when I was a kid!"

If anyone wants to do something like this, just have them call the AtLarge line (434)973-9892, or they can call me on my cell phone at (434)882-1291.
