I'd assume you can become an employee. Knowing an employee would probably get you access via them.

Any way to get those discounts!?

You mentioned you get them "Heavily Discounted". I'm going to assume you're not an actual employee. He's asking whats this method you speak of?

100% spot on. I can fold them and put them in my drawer and not bother hanging them up every use, as the material happens to be "wrinkle free" in a sense. Saving a couple buck on the cleaners adds up, and the fact that they hem for free is nice. I've purchased plenty of dress pants that needed $10-$30 in work done (to be fair, my sizing is unique) and that's after paying $20-$50 for the pants to begin with. I get my Lulus heavily discounted personally and may have a few pairs to sell here (both new & lightly used). Unfortunately I can't get them in bulk but if I ever do, I'll post here.

I think the exorbitant price tag plays a heavy role here. How would you get them heavily discounted? They don't seem to go on sale too often. No one has discussed the quality exactly being they're 100% Polyester. I was always under the impression Polyester was on the lower end when it comes to fabrics with Wool, Cotton, anything else being better. If they were the same price as say BR Traveler Cotton Pants, that would be one thing. but they are about 3x that price. I have never tried them on but want to see the light

I would also add that if you generally send your dress pants to the cleaners, Lulus can be washed in a machine at home.  There's an immediate savings and ROI just in that...

Yes bc they're 100% Polyester. 100% wool you can't do that with. Still doesn't justify why one would pay 3x-4x more for it.

There's also a $20 dining credit to dining advantage.
Does anyone have a kosher place near them that is part of it?

There seems to be a few in Brooklyn. Search your zip on Diningadvantage.com

Lulu is worth every penny

Can you elaborate on what's so special about them that it warrants this exorbitant price tag??
It is 100% Polyester after all... pretty inferior quality

Went up a dollar or 2 before the virus and them again durning the virus and doesn't seem to be coming back down. On that note, I know a great barber in Lakewood who refused to raise his prices during covid. You can PM me for his number.

I feel like the average nowadays is $20-$25 and for a good cut $30+. My guy consistently went up about $2 every year.
Maybe it's time to switch Professions?  ;)

I tip my barber $5, she works with my schedule and does a great job, its anyways $25 with tip.


Do you mean it's advertised as $20 and you gave $5 tip? I've never seen it listed including tip. Where is this place?
As a side note, did the going rate go up dramatically for Barbers or is it just me?

Nationwide starting offering same thing in select states. Plug in device and you pay per mile

Do a lot of people use this? Does it actually come out to be cheaper?

Why does anyone buy or finance is what I've always wondered.
I bought out and sold my last lease, netted 5k. Leased a brand new vehicle, msrp of 48k, for $250 a month, 24 month lease. Rinse and repeat, and worst case scenario give it back and walk away.

Not every vehicle will have positive equity that you can turn it in for a profit. Happens to be the used car market right now is hot due to Covid, and you can flip to Vroom/Carvana for a profit. But that's not always the case.

Any ideas for some condo resorts closer to NYC?
Like somewhere in the Poconos

Same. Lots of us are looking for the same thing. Nice Hotel within a few hour drive, (or short flight that isn't on Quarantine list), Minyan. Kosher food, and on the Water a plus. Any ideas?

what other alternative can I do domestic for a quick weekend getaway (must include kosher food and cheap flying of course)?

With half the US imposing a 14 Day Quarantine, I think lots of ppl are looking for something like this. Unfortunately cant find anything as cheap as $26 to Florida

Frontier will reimburse you for up to $200 of a ticket purchase on a different airline.

Interesting. Never heard that before. I was always hesitant to fly for that reason
