    I got a set of codes that are for international orders only. They are actually worth more than the typical codes but arent "gold member" codes... I tried to use them and have some stuff shipped to a US address and it wouldnt let me. I dont have a set of standard codes for january yet.

    Welcome to the after christmas season. Tower jacked most of their prices by 5-10% at the end of November and now that the holidays are over they're back to normal. For example in Nov Savage Fluxes were $629 and had been all year. They went up to $679 for the holiday and are now back to $629. I love tower and I love their coupons but price gouging for the holiday season really makes me angry.

    This is how GP/Hobbico works. As far as I remember they have had questionable business practices.

    supply and demand...... no price gouging there. If you don't want to pay the price and/or use their coupons, simply buy locally or from 1000 other online stores. Even with the so called "price gouging" when you applied their coupon codes you still came out ahead. Just my take on it, I see where you're coming from but just do the math.

    parokya, shoot over to towerhobbies.com and search "super saver club" pay the $9.95 and you get membership for year. That will include monthly emails where you get codes for purchases, ie: $50 off orders over $300 , $40 for orders over $250 etc..... they also offer free shipping on orders over $150 It's a no brainer deal if you buy a lot of RC stuff, most of the forum reg's belong and it'll save you some cash in the long run.

    I just noticed today that they dropped the price on the pede 4x4 20 bucks since i bought mine at christmas. Kind of ***** but after 60 off you still cant complain.

    Called tower this morning. I didnt know this but they have a 30 day price guarantee policy. I paid $324 for my KB on December 27th... I then bought a 2nd on Jan 4th for $314. They are now selling for $316. Oddly enough, tower refunded me $8... which is the difference in price of my #1 KB car VS the current sale price. But only 9 days ago they were $2 cheaper... the prices are all over the place. But at least they gave me the $8 back. Thats good.

    I tried to convince them to give me $10 back for my original rally I bought in november. I paid $299 and they are now $290 but its over 30 days so they wouldent do it.

    How do you find these specials on the Tower site? I get the specials they email me but cant find the complete list of specials on the website.
