Does anyone know if NWS Online Gaming Store is planning to have Black Friday sale tomorrow ? I'm interested to get GMT Ardennes '44 2nd Edition. Any other on-line store that carries this game for a good deal ?

Thanks

Peter

CoolStuffInc has 2 in stock for $35.99 with 10% off, as opposed to NWS for $34.99.

Miniature Market has 3 in stock for $35.75 with 8% off, but their sale doesn't start for a few hours.

As GMT have sold out of the reprint, I'm not too sure how long they'll be available.


Also, I seem to remember reading that NWS posted that they'll match any Black Friday offer, so it may be worth emailing Chris Dean.

[Edit: Can't seem to find the link to where I read that, but I think it's correct.]

Wargame Depot: http://wargamedepot.com/catalog/ardennes44-p-1813.html

Similar price and clearly the 2nd Ed.
Where NWS is concerned make contact and ensure they have what you want.
My experience is that he does not necessarily have everything their webstore says they do. Additionally, he has two locations that he ships from and wanted to send stuff to me from both locations. No thanks.

Edit: splellinging

I do know that he said they'd match MMP's Black Friday (on Black Friday) sale.

Given their low prices, I wouldn't expect them to have a lot of room to drop prices even more.

I emailed Chris at NWS about Black Friday sales and because of their low pricing and price matching they don't have holiday sales.

A couple/few years ago I asked for a price match from NWS with an item for sale here on BGG. He quoted $5 over the price advertised here and then he bought the last one off of BGG before I even read his reply.


Hmm. Similarly, I once found a price discrepancy between an NWS ad here on BGG and their webstore. The nice man from NWS thanked me for noticing the error and took the ad down. I was a little surprised there was no offer to price match their own ad. It was only a $4 difference, of little consequence to me and probably not a deal breaker for them, I would think, but I still believe "if you're gonna talk the talk, walk the walk."

Hi everyone,

We do not normally have a "Black Friday" sale as we try to offer our best prices at all times and also try to match competitor totals (shipping, game prices, rewards, etc..) whenever possible. I did post some sale prices for MMP and DVG to help match their sale prices.

I do try to keep up on our prices as much as possible. Note, if a title runs out a publisher, depending on sourcing, then we have to switch to distributor pricing which can be a few dollars more. To Mo, you might have caught us in the middle of a price change, my apologies for any possible confusion.

As to our inventory - we do our best to keep as many products on hand as possible but if there is ever any need for a delivery by a certain time frame please do not hesitate to contact me anytime and I can give updated information via email or phone as needed.

If there are any other questions please let me know and I can be reached by email anytime at nws-online@nws-online.net or 1-407-925-7782 24/7.

Thanks and take care friends.

Just to clarify, yes, we have arrangements to have games sometimes shipped from different sources or suppliers - however - this does not normally effect the shipping rates for a combined multi-game order. The only exceptions might be if we have to special order an OOP or rare title from an alternate source, or, if ordering $100+ of VPG titles for the shipping discount applied to their titles. (Note: This specific exception may be changed soon).

If there are any questions please let me know.

Thanks
