As of late March 2018, Ultrasabers has hiked up the prices on their Grab Bag Blades, including both Initiate Grab Bag Blades (24 inch) and Full Size Grab Bag Blades (32, 36 or 40 inch blades). The Initiate Grab Bag Blades (24 inch) used to be $5 each and they are now $8 each. The Full Size Grab Bag Blades (32, 36 or 40 inch blades) were $10 each and are now $12 each.

In addition to the price hike, Ultrasabers has eliminated their “Buy 5 Grab Bag Blades get 1 Free” deal. The deal used to give customers 1 free Grab Bag Blade for EVERY 5 Grab Bag Blades that they ordered. For example, in the past you could have theoretically bought 50 Grab Bag Blades and gotten 10 Grab Bag Blades free (that’s A LOT of blades!). Ultrasabers notes in the Grab Bag Bag description, “Effective 03/20/2018 there is no longer a buy 5 get 1 free deal on grab bag blades.” [Grab Bag Blades description; RETREVIED 4/3/2018]
The Ultrasabers Grab Bag Blades price hike and elimination of “buy 5 get one free” deal went into effect near the end of March 2018.
Despite the price hike, Ultrasabers Grab Bag Blades remain one of the best deals on lightsaber blades out there. The blades may have some minor imperfections, but you’d still be hard pressed to find lightsaber blades within the $8-$12 range anywhere else (if you know of somewhere, please contact me!). So Ultrasabers Grab Bag Blades are still a good deal, just not quite as good of a deal as before.
