I'm an owner of Butterfly Labs hashing power and as many others I'm faced by the ASIC pre-order decision.
I'm more interested in preserving my current value than expanding my mining operation, and BFL honors dollar-for-dollar trade-ins up to 50% of the ASIC purchasing price.  

So I'm offering 9 BFL SC (ASIC) Singles up for pre-order (usually priced at 1299$) directly from BFL.  
With my trade-in I will be able to sell 9 units for 1120 USD each (that's a discount of 13.8%).  

If someone's interested in having all 9 available units, we will do this directly through BFL (your funds go to BFL, they will be told to send 9 units from my order directly to your address).
US Shipping is paid by me if all 9 units are bought (then they are shipped from BFL directly to you).

Actual shipping dates are at the mercy of BFL of course.

This offer will give you a serious discount if you are thinking to pre-order SC Singles!

PM if interested, buyers of the whole lot are preferred.  

Cheers!

So you have 9 BFL Singles (FPGA). You're going to trade them in for ASICs, and then sell those ASICs for a discount. I don't get it. Why not mine on the ASICs? Or sell them for a profit (rather than a discount) like i'm sure a bunch of other people are going to be doing?

That is how I read it, very strange indeed.

I am also fairly certain BFL will not allow you to drop ship your order to someone else. You will need to receive them and then remail them to the buyer.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

Because it's a pre-order. He's getting the funds now so he can use them to order the units. He's keeping his BFL exposure in check this way.

This is basically true.

@ crazyates: In fact I have the processing power of 15 Singles, and I'm willing to give someone 9 (and 6 for me), as an incentive to take my offer. The total price for those 9 ASIC Singles is what BFL quoted me as a payment for 15 ASIC Singles upgrade (subtracting my trade-in).  So you basically get 9 for the price of 7.5 by paying my upgrade. I believe this is a better deal than ordering from BFLs web-page if you don't own a trade-in now.  

@ sadpandatech: BFL has shown the flexibility in the past to ship partial orders to different addresses (several posts of people selling ordered FPGA Singles before they got them). I will of course make sure that this works before finalizing any of this, and have the buy-in of everyone involved.

Ah I think I see now. You want to upgrade all 15 of your FPGAs to ASICs, but don't want to spend another 10k USD in the process. So you're selling 9 ASICs to cover the cost of upgrading all 15. Thanks for the clarification.

Since there were several individuals interested in less than the whole lot of 9, I have created a GLBSE listing to facilitate the sale to those that are interested:

Have a look!
