Have any of you seen this site? Whiskey Militia Deal Tracker on GearScan.com

It tracks WM, SAC & the others, just helps you get an idea of the rotation they have & when an item may be back up. You can also track the price of any item, whether its been dropping or raising. Kinda fun if you're addicted to the site like I am.

SAC/WM have been kinda of weird lately. Lots of times they're showing items that you could get Backcountry (or Dogfunk, etc.) for less or marginally the same price. For example they had something up not too long ago that was like $55 on SAC and $65 on backcountry. When you factor in shipping (which is free on backcountry), that's only a difference of probably $3-4. I'd rather just buy it off backcountry at that point.

They are just additional distribution channels for BC/Dogfunk to dump overstocked inventory operating on the principle of a timer and rotation to get people to impulse buy a deal before it "runs out". Deal hunters love that shit. Most people won't even bother to check the warehouse retailers to see if they have the same item for a comprable price because they are too distracted by the limited time "special".

True Story. If you are going to buy something from WM or SAC definitely check to see what other deals on that item are out there. I have to admit though, Steep and Cheap's customers service is phenomenal. I had a problem with an order not shipping for 3 weeks. They ended up refunding my shipping, taking money off the order, and giving my free shipping for my next order.

Even so, the pricing used to be much better. Perhap 30% off on Dogfunk/BCoutlet and 50+ on SAC. Nowadays I've seen a few instances where it's more like 55% off on SAC, and then 45-50% on DF/BC.

They will better relative to each other when they aren't furiously trying to dump retail goods off DF/BC to both create warehouse space for inventory and whip people into buying frenzy.
