Yeah, I suggest you quit being so fucking cheap. You want allstar treatment and to get comped free shit? Try supporting your local shop. The money you spend there will be returned to you in kind in the form of maybe free wax/sharpening jobs, better features in your park, more support for local riders, a better shred scene at your home hill, and yes, free shit for being known. You'll also get a fuck of a lot better service if something goes wrong with your board.

free shit is not as good as unconditional satisfaction guarantee. if you must buy online, go through Backcountry.com or Dogfunk.com; they will literally let you ride the snowboard and return it if you decide you don't like it. Dogfunk's prices will be the same as anyone else's since these are generally set by the manufacturer, not the retailer, and the only freebie you'll get is peace of mind.

You're dropping $430 on a new snowboard, better be either damn sure you like it, or you better be able to return it if it's not what you expected.

Edit: FWIW I've gotten some of those freebies from the-house.com before, generally speaking they're garbage. Sunglasses you've never heard of and don't really want. Another pair of ear buds that are just as uncomfortable as the pair you already own, etc.

REI has the same sort of guarantee on everything they sell, but I know you're looking for a Machete and they only carry Burton, Arbor, Jones, and a few other brands but not Ride.

But just in case you're looking for other stuff, if there's an REI in your neighborhood you can at least visit the store & check out the products in person which is always nice.
