Prices

Postby mo'wind » Tue Feb 08, 2005 6:00 pm

Gumball,

Get real. prices have gone up significantly since last year. I paid about 1550 for three kites and a bar with lines after a discount code was used. Now you can't buy three without paying retail for one. Also the SELECTION is far less than last year on the buy one get one deal. It is just not as cheap as it was. Not to mention increased board costs. I am looking at other companies now for purchase. Its your loss. Don't insult us with this talk about how prices havent changed. We can perform simple addition.

The greatest deal of all is Windwing. You get 05 S.A.F.E/relaunch systems and incredible flying kites for cheaper than any other company - except chinakites of course. http://WWW.WINDEXPRESS.COM

Well I hope I don't get in trouble for this since I do plan on buying a banner as soon as I'm given more info on it... so here it goes...

I'll have kites up within the next 2-3 months... check my site often because I'll have the basic design up shortly and I'll have a prototype made within the next month and a half with pics and a few people testing it...

I'm not going to link my site because it's obviously in here...


*hoping he doesn't get in trouble for this*

yeh buts its not going to be available on the new rapture, apparently, just like the 3 for2 or 1 for 1 isnt available on the new 05 bests.

bottom line, the basic unit prices havent changed just the availability of deals, there will be more deals.

So Simon the new business model "sell direct to the customer so they save money" was just a scam to get market share after a late start in the business? C'mon be honest you guys were late to the party so you came up with 3 for 2 deal just to shut out your competitors. Don't give me unit cost bullshit were not your suppliers. Your prices went UP. simple as that.

we'll agree to differ then, at the end of the day the prices are driven by demand, its as simple as that.
