Actually it says at least 50% off everything. Since they claim everything is always 35% to 70% off usually that's not that impressive of a sale.

why does it seem like the trend on this forum is responding to every post with a grammatical correction or some other nit picky response? Can't people just say thanks for the heads up and move on?

I think I'm set for the year in terms of gear, but 1/2 off sales are always tempting.

I found a cheap pair of 200cm Fisher E99's at STP-online. Originally $300, marked down to $180. I drove out to the Cheyenne store to look before buying. After I supplied them with my zip code, they took another $50 off. Probably out of sympathy. I ended getting the last pair in stock.

hey thanks mr burns i already knew and bought some stuff yesterday.
On you comment about people and their need to correct things I notice that to, not sure why they feel the need.
I read some stupid comment about golf and the original poster was just talking smack about golf not being dangerous and somebody had to chime in with it's dangerous because of the strikes that occur blah blah blah.

You used the wrong "to". . . :wink: LOL!

Yeah, I agree with what you're saying, though. Can't we all just get along? [-o<

I picked up a pair of convertible hiking pants for 25 bucks. Not a bad deal, and I've been looking for a pair. Thanks for the link.

You just made it sound like everything was 50% off their prices. It put me under the wrong impression. Sometimes they do 25% off sales that allow you to take 25% off their discounted prices. I was just trying to clarify the sale. Just posting a response that I felt was appropriate for others who might be disappointed when they read the subject line.

IMO, that's not nit picky at all. There's a huge difference between "50% off everything" and "up to 50% off everything." Typical marketing ploy, that really makes it sounds better than it is.

I sometimes get fooled initially by Moosejaw with their wording. Like the recent "Buy any 4 Moosejaw items and the 4th one is free." What the fine print really means is "any 4 Moosejaw brand items."

The devil is in the details.
