Hobby King -- Kinda Funny II

Just got notice of a 12 hr sale since the 4 hr one was a bust. I assume due to the short notice. Poor folks like me can only check email once a day if I am lucky....

Cool Re: Hobby King -- Kinda Funny II

Like most of us , I was out flying Sunday when they sent the 4 hour sale.

By the time I checked my e mail it was over.

I don't think they thought that over to much. Especailly the 12 hour one.

I like how Busy Bee tools has their sales, Monthly.
Their retired customers get paid once a month so they have a chance to budget a purchase.
They thougth it out.

I think you are right.

From listening to others, it seems everyone was sent a different offer. Sure the price was excellent, but for something I would never want or probably never even use. That aspect alone would make the return on such offers very sparce at best let alone a time limited offer that was given that most folks wouldn't have even discovered until it was too late.

Even the wording was suspect. "We have greatly overstocked on this item so are offering it at below warehouse cost. Hurry, limited quantities available!" Huh?

Well, maybe their new marketing personal were trying to make an impression!

I do have to say, I have ordered a number of items from HK and all that I have gotten from them has been good quality and very affordable, good prices. I will continue to be a customer for as long as I fly electric aircraft and their prices stay so very reasonable!
