Since the first day of Spring was March 20, 2011, it might be time to retire the WINTER2011 coupon. With that suggestion, I'm wondering what the next awesome coupon from Limestone will be?
As me being a Texas resident, and with Limestone being in Dallas, TX, I know that I'll have to pay the sales tax on my (potential) server, which puts me and other Texas residents at a slight disadvantage in terms of final monthly cost.
Now, I've been doing my homework. I've been checking out Softlayer, SingleHop, and other dedicated hosting service providers, and when I compare apples to apples in terms of hardware and bandwidth, Limestone comes out on top -- each and every single time. What can I say, you guys really do offer awesome hardware.
So, the point.
The point is that right now I'm on a VPS. But I have my eyeball on Limestone. My purchasing finger is on the trigger to grab a dedicated server. I know that there are "exclusive" specials that get announced from time to time, so I'm following Limestone on Twitter too ... just in case.
I'm looking at this setup, at a cost of $182.90 per month with the current WINTER1011 coupon. But with 8.25% tax, that jumps up to $197.99.
I know that there will be people out there who will hoot and hollar that even at $197.99, this server is a great deal ... but call me "thrifty," "crazy," or even "stubborn." (My reply to those people, "But I know that once I purchase the dedicated server, I'll be locked into an agreement, and future coupons cannot be applied to my account. Therefore, it's in my interest to save as much as possible BEFORE beginning an agreement because the monthly cost will not change for as long as I keep the server!")
Just wanted to let you know that I'm watching ... and waiting.
