banana free shipping

Hey All, I saw that an airframe at Banana was back in stock, and tried to order it and use the free shipping advertised on the webpage.

It didnt work but I contacted them online and now the free shipping code is working!!
Good Job!

the code is
HappyNewYear

that is how I typed it, with CAPS and No spaces

yes i did see that, the airframe i wanted was $119. I even tried the RTF to see if maybe it only applied to RTF's but the code wasnt working for that either.
BUT NOW IT IS!!!!

Well that is actually good, because they fixed it. Before you would be waiting for it to arrive 2-3 weeks later and they would reply that they didn't have it in stock, so I am glad they can find out within the processing time. I lost out on the f22 kit but got the a10 one.

How long does it normally take BH to update the order status? Decided to make a purchase and don't want to be bummed if it was OOS after getting my hopes up.

Well, I just went there to order the airframe I've been wanting for a while and they jacked the price up $20. So mush for free shipping.

I think a lot of online retailers do that. It's all based on supply and demand. It's no different than at Amazon but less noticeable since there's millions of items sold. The plane I got was in stock at BH with free shipping so I jumped on it. Now it's $10 more but OOS. Hopefully it arrives in one piece.

Does anyone know if BH offers holiday or seasonal big discounts (15%+) besides free shipping?
