Topic tags/keywords: supplies promotion customer service turning pen turning pen making

OK, just wanted to thank The Wood Turners Catalog (Some know them by Craft Supplies USA). Yesterday, 12/29, I placed an order for some supplies. Today I received an email with a 1 day promotion discount of 15% for all orders placed today (12/30). So I called up customer service with a simple question. Since I placed the order yesterday not knowing about the upcomming promotion, was there anything they could do for me?

I did not get a refund BUT they did put the equivalant of the discount on account to be applied to my next order. I was expecting to be told no because, running promotions in my line of work, I know what the usual policies are in regards to retroactive discounts on existing orders. But as far as I am concerned, if you don’t ask, the answer is automatically “No”.

Thank you Woodturners Catalog! From a now loyal customer. So here is some more promotion for you:

For today only, Woodturners Catalog is offering 15% off all in stock items. The promotion code is on their homepage at

I had a some what similar experiance with Craft Supplies. I had ordered a set of small hollowing tools.and by the time I had received them, the little guys were on sale. So I had called to moan and groan. They could offer me a credit, but did offer a 10% discount on my next order. Aw what the hell, give on of those bowl coring tools that I was on the fence about. To make it sweeter they had reduce the shipping by 1/2.

I have used them for several years. They have good prices, great quality, and unbeatable customer service. If you call with a question, the person on the other end of the phone is a wood turner and knows how to answer your question or solve your problem. Try them, you won’t be sorry!
