    Anybody ever did a price match with those yahoos? Man I tell ya, not worth it! I did a price match on a scope. Opticsplanet were selling the scope for $319.99 free S/H( Millett 4-16x50mm Tactical Rifle Scope FREE S&H BK81008, BK81001A, BK81001. Millett Rifle Scopes. ) and I wanted to see if they could beat cheaperthandirt's price $289 + 11.00 shipping( 38974 - Millett TRS-1 Tactical Riflescope 4-16x50mm Mil-Dot Illuminated Reticle Black ) and this is what opticsplanet emailed me:

    Money talks and BS walks (not implying that your post is BS BTW). If you don't like the price, don't do business with them.

    FWIW, I have got some pretty good deals on sunglasses from them. I wear Serengetti's pretty much exclusively and they have had the best prices I have found on any searches I have done. Bought a couple of pairs of sunglasses from them.

    YMMV.

    Can't tell ya! I have seen some pretty good deals on Midway from time to time on scopes.

    From being in the business years ago, prices on scopes can vary widely based on particular purchasing packages companies may buy into. On any given day, Midway, Cheaper than Dirt, Brownell's, etc. may have a great deal on any particular scope depending on some kind of package purchase deal they may have signed up for with any particular reseller/distributor. They're not trying to screw anybody, just taking their base price, adding their acceptable profit margin, and putting out there to see who bites.

    Capitalism at it's best! :D

    SO, let me get this straight- OP offered you a 5% discount on your order. Their price, $319.99 and free S/H minus 5% would be a total cost of $304.00

    Cheaperthandirt's price is $289.00 + $11.00 S/H, for a total price of $300.00.

    So essentially you're here vetching over a measly four dollars.

    It is what it is. I'll take any discount in this day and age. Especially with the prices in the classifieds, I'll take anything lol.
