Sez they have 4600 to give away. If their cost for the package is $250, that's still a million ducks. Just to have a bunch of boards out there with their sticker on them. Smells....

Like admiral Akbar said "It's a trap"
You'd think a free board with a sticker would be too good to be true, but adding the boots and binding just make it waaaay too good to be true.

To answer the OP's question if you bought that setup it would probably be all bottom of the line stuff, so not such a good setup. However if it is free how could it be bad?

I feel that this was a marketing ploy. It's actually an old marketing trick at that. A deal that sounds too good to be true. You call about the ad, they say it's all gone, and give you a discount for mentioning it when you go into the store.

Why is there a bar code on the add??
Isn't false advertising illegal??? Yes not worth looking into unless you ARE an attorney but question still stands.

There are supposed to be laws about bait and switch, but there's usually ways around them (or it's just not worth pursuing).

Plus, it wouldn't be worth any attorney to take this job in my opinion... unless you could get a class action lawsuit going and even then, still probably not much money in it for them.

According to the website address of the photo, their facebook page, a member says that the snowboard shop did something to piss off the owner of their website. This is a pathetic photoshop (since they are too stupid to realize a bar code has nothing to do with the ad), and is an attempt to flood the shop with phone calls and angry visitors.

Comments like "guy did not seem too pleased when I asked him about a free snowboard" and "What's the story behind this? What did Function 4 Sports do to piss David off?"

Delete this bullshit thread.
