DEALS AND STEALS

Recommended Posts

I don't deny that people might have missed them, but for others who are interested, they've been up for a while, so maybe the prices are negotiable.

That Devils used practice jersey is way undervalued. $60 is practically giving it away of coarse.

Now if it was a green Devils practice jersey, it would be priceless!!!!!

Is there any way to check all of Craigslist in the U.S in a single search? I bet there are FHL jerseys to be found.

I found that using searchtempest. You can set a mile radius from you and it checks all of them within that.

Thanks Joe, I will have to try it. Another question for my fellow collectors: Any word on new additions to the Meigray clearance page? I emailed them yesterday but no response. Last year they had some amazing jerseys up right after the expo.

RCS sent me an email -- US customers are getting 40% off this weekend with a coupon code.

I went to their website and ordered a $299.99 CDN Edge 2.0 -- the coupon knocked it down to $179.99 CDN If I spend over $100, free shipping. Cool.

So I put in all the info to pay, clicked Pay -- and now when I look at my orders page, it says $179.99 US.What the heck?

I emailed customer support and I also called the toll free number -- customer service people only work Monday through Thursday?

If I get an Edge 2.0 for only $180 US, that is still a good deal, but $180 US is way more than $180 CDN. Like, $40 US more.

Has anyone else gone though this with RCS?

You can't order in $CDN if you have the order shipped to the US. You get billed in $US, same dollar amount but with no conversion. You can order in $CDN only if you have the order shipped to a Canadian address. But then you get hit with Canadian tax, which wipes out a lot of what you saved from the discrepancy between the US and CDN dollar.

Not sure if this matters or not but you can browse the site in $CAD and it's the same price as the $US. I think they just charge the same amount in either currency. I think this was brought up before.

Yes, that's exactly what we are saying here. Just reiterating for the benefit of the OP who didn't seem to understand why he got charged in US dollars instead of the same number of CDN dollars.

Gotcha, sorry your post made it seem like you can order for less in $CAD.

You can order for less in CDN, but you must have it shipped to a Canadian address. I actually did this once when I ordered a Leafs 2.0 and asked for it to be sent straight to SLC in Canada to get lettered. That way I would avoid having it sent to me in the US, then having to send it back to Canada (SLC), and having them send it back across the border again after it was finished. I would have gotten a great deal on the whole thing, but my plan got screwed up when RCS told me they couldn't find the size I ordered in their inventory, and they had to cancel the order.

So you can pay in $CDN on the site, but only if you have the order shipped to a Canadian address. But when you add the Canadian taxes plus the cost of having it shipped to you from Canada (which would have been free from RCS for a $100 order), you really don't end up saving anything.

I am not being charged for shipping. So what I am hearing is that I got a deal but not nearly as good a deal as I thought I was going to get. okay.

Well then the website is super confusing because I don't see that listed anywhere that you will actually be charged $CAD by entering a Canadian shipping address. When you toggle between $USD and $CAD at the top right of the site, the prices do not change but this is before any shipping information is entered.

That info is not listed anywhere. Whether you are browsing in CDN or US price mode, when you check out, the price will switch to $US if you list a US shipping address. If your item is listed as $100 CDN, it will simply be reset to $100 US when you check out. They simply don't convert the currencies to current equal value.

How is the customization at RCS? Would like to get my 40% off jersey and not have to send it someplace else.

Cheers

This may be a little late, but I have had three Stars Jerseys done by them and they have all been top notch. 2 were back in 2001 and the most current was on a 12 home. Quality was the same for all and they were much quicker than they said they would be.

You can even ship Jerseys to them to have done, but with them being in Canada, it is pricier to have done.

I hear good things about EPS as well.

Thanks for the heads up on the MGG clearance blanks -- looks like mostly 1.0s and white styles for the teams you mentioned. Did they have any of the home (color) versions when you first saw it?
