We highly encourage retailers to turn The Weekender into thier own on-site retreat, so pricing is tiered to support ordering mutliple kits. When you order five or more kits, they are only $130 each. 

In order to create fairness, Weekender Kits may not be discounted; however, you are allowed to and even encouraged to add value to the event in other ways. This may include offering crop space, snacks/lunch, and/or other product additions (some examples may include a pack adhesives or an extra card kit).

Standard wholesale shipping rates apply: orders over $300 will recieve free domestic shipping. Since this is a special event, kits will ship on thier own.
