Is it my imagination or did their MSRP prices actually go up? Seriously, look at something like the Senn RS180... $500 regular price? Yeesh, even at half price the amazon.com price is still lower than that.

Future Shop is infamous for this sort of thing. They mark their MSRP up and then a couple of weeks later they post a supposed huge sale with some limited number items actually on sale while others are just marked as on sale but they're actually just being sold at the old price before the MSRP markup. They do it this way because then technically they can call it a sale and can't get in trouble for false advertising. There was a huge hub bub a few years ago concerning their computers when the better business bureau was pushing that they be investigated for false advertising. Apparently they were running flyers with systems slashed at ridiculously low prices but what the flyer didn't tell anyone was the advertised system was only of limited quantities Canada wide. People would get there hoping to buy the for sale system and would find out the system was sold out. Salesmen would then show them something else and give them this system is a far better system for the money story. In short they were playing the bait and switch game. The next time you get a Future Shop on sale flyer check some of the advertisements more closely and you'll see they now have the limited quantities disclaimer print on some of the sale items to avoid anymore legal hassles. I've noticed they're not as bad for this sort of thing anymore since BestBuy took them over.

yeah prices are definitely "more than full" ones. But some of the deals are still decent, assuming that you can find someone to get it with- at least for Canada. S4- 60 bucks, HD558s 125 etc.

Don't ask questions.  Hurry and fill your cart and check out.  Can't believe it also works with Grado which is very rare indeed.  Crazy - coupon works for all headphones including the RS1i, Edtion8, and T5p.

Newegg has the A151 for $40 again with free shipping  I looked earlier this week and this was not the case.

post #1813 of 9235

In California, Fry's Electronics (a warehouse style electronics retailer) pulls the same stunt with their weekend ads. They'll have a few outstanding deals but maybe only a dozen or so available at each location so you drive out there only to be told they're sold out and are subsequently offered something else. Also, they tend to have a lot of returned/refurbed items on the shelf, which in many cases are not quality checked to see if they actually work, so you drive home with some defective piece of kit (gpu, hard drive, cable, etc). I've taken to shopping at newegg, even if fry's occasionally has better prices.

 

Also, $40 bucks for the A151 is a great price. I was very happy with then for $50 a few months back
