Default Buy Now or Wait??

I have an offer from an online retailer that will give me 10% off the T. Rice board which sounds like a pretty good deal. It is getting towards the end of the season though and I'm thinking it might be onsale for more than that in a couple weeks. What does everyone think, buy now or wait?


Thanks

I dont follow lib and I just noticed theres a $150 difference between the normal and the more eco friendly one? Jesus christ!

Is that all the h.p. is? A more eco friendly board? F that noise.

Is the board you want the 550 or 700? Either way i'd prob wait. But keep an eye out before they get sold out.

Yeah, I'm can't ever imagine shelling out $700 for a board, can't really believe I'm buying a $540 board. I did pull the trigger on it because they only have 2 left and the 10% was going to run out on Sun. I rationalize it by paying $485 for the board and getting $175 for my old one.

$425 was better than what I paid.

I thought I got a killer deal paying $390 OTD for my NS Evo in the beginning of the season.

Yep!
Funny story actually...
I had that A -Frame in my sight for a while, and I knew it weould go down like that in summer. I get it for $305..Good deal, I'm happy. I get out in the blazing sun, and see the mark of bindings on the topsheet...WTF? Look under and see 2 light long scratches on the base...start looking on the edge and see two small nicks..one semi-warped the top sheet.


I go back inside and tell the salerep that probably the shop guys used the board at the end of the season and then put it back as new, and that they should be crucifixed for that...well I thought that, I just said "This board has been obiouvsly used, I would like 70% off over a used board price"
The sales rep thought a second and said " how's $198 sounds? "
"sounds awesome ma'am"

That's how I got a $600 board for $ 198, plus some scratches
