Hey look, the price just went up ten bucks. Not as bad as the Buc's $25, but damn it, is there any reason we can't get a little head's before the change? Just as a courtesy to anyone who might be on the fence about ordering now or waiting for a bit, which is kind of what happened to me with the Buc. If I'd known about an upcoming price increase I would have ordered one before that occurred, but I thought 72 hrs wouldnt make any difference.
Doing that usually works out for the retailer too, because it generates a little spike in orders; the wise business owner understands it's like a sale you don't have to reduce prices for.
Things worked out with the Buc 'n me though: picked one up locally from a private seller, blue with the fancy milling, for only $100.
