    Default Gear purchasing stategy

    Hey Guys,
    I thought that I would mention something that I tried this weekend that actually worked. These days we are all trying to bleed a dime to save money but we still need gear. Here's what I did:

    I went to MusiciansFriend (yeah, I know some of you hate them; I've had my moments too) and got my shopping cart ready. I noticed that MF has pretty much watermarked all of their site photos with "Will match any price." This being the case, I did internet searches for everything that I wanted to buy. A lot of these items came back on Amazon. As many know you click on an item and there is a typical price, but below that price is something to the effect of 'X number of sellers from X price.' Well, I drilled down on each item that I wanted and found the lowest price on each product. I had a different tab in Firefox set to each item and then I made the call to MF. I gave the CSR all of my product numbers and I was given the price. I, then, pointed the CSR to all pages I had prepared. MF actually honored the prices and I saved $15 on a $75 order. It really was cool to save 20% on my order and still get the exact same products. I thought that I would mention it if you have any gear that you need to pick up. To me it was well worth the extra effort.

    Sweet move chipstar!

    I'm surprised they actually gave you 20% off!

    Doesn't it say they will beat any advertised price?

    I've got to try it next gear purchase!

    Thanks for sharing!!!!!
