Since there will probably be a huge price spike of glyphs after the expansion comes out and everyone is getting a new set of glyphs, should we buy glyphs now that we plan on using later? Or will they not transfer over like that? For example, I plan on using the glyph of mangle once Cataclysm comes out; should I get it now while the prices might be low and apply it once 4.0.1. hits, or do I have to wait until Cataclysm and get it when prices are high or wait until the prices have settled?

Get the glyph now. I suggest you read the post that basil linked, it stated that all glyphs will now require 3 inks. There are some glyphs that will be changing, and others will be destroyed with the cataclysm. You may be able to find a deal on that glyph a few months after cata, but in all likelyhood, it will be cheaper now. I'd just search the AH for a week and see how cheap you can get it, and if you find a cheap one, snatch it up.TL;DR: If you find a good deal on a glyph right now (say 5g or less), buy it.

Or have a friend that's a scribe.

Perhaps easier than buying now, is gathering materials now (ink, or herbs) and waiting until the expansion hits to have the glyphs themselves made. Inks stack. Glyph pages don't.Have a friend that's a scribe, or call for one on trade chat, if you need help converting herbs to inks. (Herbs stack, yeah, but not as compactly as inks.)

Um. Glyphs do indeed stack but if you are talking about each different glyph you could just put them in your mailbox.
