I have no luck. I buy something and then a week or 2 later I find it for a cheaper price.

Picked up an arbor draft for $150, a Volcom jacket for $50, and a new pair of pants for $40 from a Sport Chalet. They had 50% off all last years stuff so I was pretty stoked off that deal.

Maybe Kwanzaa will give you a penny for it.

Haven't bought much snowboard gear lately, didn't even get on the mountain last year. Scored all my deals back in 09 when I bought the majority of my gear.

Lib Tech Dark Series for $199, brand new when Board Paradise closed.

Capita ScareMaster for $110, brand new from EvoGear during a huge sale.

Oakley Crowbar Seth Morrison goggles for $60, brand new from the Oakley Vault.

Those were my best buys but pretty much all my gear was bought at least 25% off.

That is exactly how I got my pants for $60 and my jacket for $50.

I might get laughed at, probably was ripped off, or maybe not.....but in 2002 when I was working on an east coast resort a co-worker comes to me with a brand new board with bindings that he won in a staff raffle. Now being completely new to all things snowboard related, about 2 days total on a beat up K2 rental, I buy this new board for $200+a case of 30 16oz Keystone lite cans (like sex in a canoe....fucking close to water...need to drink the whole case to get only mildly drunk), but he wanted that beer in particular and the case cost only $11. The board was a Heelside Glide 160. Apparently Heelside went out of business years ago, but at the time it felt a whole lot better than the rental, I did feel like I scored on that

I've gotten some pretty good deals in my day but by far the best was a Bern Carbon Fiber Watts helmet at Evo's warehouse scratch & dent sale for $25. Yes, that's $25. One small scratch on the logo, that's it. They had two so both me and my buddy picked one up.
