Not sure if there is already a place for this, if not, post current sales and coupons that will help fellow members. I’ll start with MCI Racing. They have a 20% discount for this weekend. I wasn’t aware they made repro RC10 plastic parts and tires.

Regards,

Great idea limestang. I'd guess this thread would likely be better suited placed in the "R/C Off-Topic / Chit-Chat" section.

Amain always has coupon codes: https://www.amainhobbies.com/discount-coupon-code

And Tower Hobbies always has coupon codes: https://www.towerhobbies.com/coupon-codes/ You can also get "Super Saver Club" rewards through Tower by paying $10 to become a member. The Super Saver discounts are explained here: https://www.towerhobbies.com/loyalty-club-sign-up/?cp=home-bottom-five&cp_campaign=joinssc If you are looking to purchase a $370+ vehicle, and Tower carries it, it can turn into a pretty nice deal.

holy crap, this makes me want to return the Optima Mid to HobbyTown (which they ordered for me without my consent) and get it through Tower. That's a $65 savings, plus the bonus of being in the super saver club for a year.

Yep, I used that $65 savings on a Grand Hauler and was very happy with the deal.

Tower specifically states that you can't use the coupon codes on pre-orders, but when the Optima Mid was on pre-order, I could apply the code without issue. I ended up removing it from my cart when I ordered the GH so not sure it would have worked in the long run, but it seemed to.

I asked Tower Hobbies customer service who confirmed coupon codes can certainly be applied to backorder items. I ended up keeping the Optima Mid purchased from my local HobbyTown store. I brought up the situation to the store manager who verified anyone, included non Tower club members, can use the $55 off coupon code on a $370 order. He then offered me a $55 in-store gift card which I gladly accepted because I really enjoy visiting the store and the crew are typically very helpful.

I would take a wild guess that most members of this forum are on MCI's mailing list, but in case you are not. They are having a 25% sale this Thursday 11/24 @ Midnight until this coming Sunday @ Midnight.

I paid $50 just for a set of wheels about a month ago! :shock:
