Early season discounts??

So I'm gonna pull the trigger on a 14/15 Gnu Billy Goat but they're the same price ($539.95) on all the major online sites. I was hoping to find coupon or promotion that would maybe get me a small discount (5-10%) but haven't been able to find anything. I know that it's hard to find discounts on current season gear this early but I figured I'd ask and see if anyone has any tips or ideas.

Have you asked in your local store? Don't know if it's store/brand dependent, but I did get an advance order discount of 17something% last time I've ordered pre season. Don't remember till when it was valid tho.

No guarantees but take a ride to LesMoise in Brookfield or Meqoun ask for Justin (not sure what days he works and he splits between Brkfld & Mqn so call first) and tell him I sent you. Not sure how much of a discount but he has always treated ppl good that I have sent him.

Just wait until next spring and get it for 40-50 percent off. I have picked up gear totaling about $1200 msrp for around $500 this spring/summer.

Yup, I want the C3 Billy in the 159. I saw the one on eBay but I want the 14/15 graphics. I'm don't usually let the board graphics decide what I purchase but this years design is one of the best I've ever seen.

Prices are fixed by contract and set by GNU, no one else is allowed to list it cheaper. No point looking. You have to talk to shops who are willing to deal.

i doubt u will find any heavy discounts for a 14/15 model. support local business and keep the industry in good hands, buy it from a shop
