Banana Hobby is not always a bad deal.... sometimes the deals are great....but they are very FLAKEY when it comes to pricing games. Always have been.

The bottom line, buy what you want from whomever you want if the TOTAL price delivered is right. My money is spent with the best deal and best service. Loyalty is a 2 way street....and as you can see most distributors don't care much one way or another..... Thus I am happy to return the favor at any given time.

Yes. PerlAddict is correct. Banana Hobby is no longer splitting up the prices.

I would also like to inform you guys that the Early Black Friday Sale is not over; however, a new promotion had risen. Banana Hobby is currently have the Winter Sale, which you are able to see by going onto our website at http://www.bananahobby.com/holiday-season-sales.html.
Please also note that to obtain Free Ground Shipping, the minimum purchase amount is now $50 instead of $100 as seen on the Black Friday Sale.

Sincerely,

Fire your Marketing Team, they're ruining it for BH.

Tried to place an order with free shipping over $50. "doesn't apply to Florida". Probably doesn't apply to most places. BH is driving off customers with fake "specials".

Thanks for your response!
Good evening Althorpe1.

The Black Friday Sale had ended but Banana Hobby did decide to extend the Cyber Monday Sale. So please take advantage of it.

Sincerely,
Nancy P.

Do you notice that when they do the free shipping, they are out of stock of 50-70% of their items!! Now they pull this stunt of jacking prices.way above of what you would have to pay for shipping Just in time for Christmas, now that's poor marketing tactics. Old expression, what goes around will come around. Still boils down to each one of us and what we will accept and what we will not!! They know if you want it bad enough you will,pay the price!!! Complaints do not solve issues, only action!!! Up to each one of us, then perhaps they will come around.

Does BH read these posts? Or do they just respond with an automatic BS response?

You guys are waaaay out of touch with modern shopping habits in this hobby. FREE means FREE, not a hidden price increase. Do you really think we don't figure this out? You are taking advantage of the less experienced buyers.

Not the way to expand a business.

............more Banana Insanity........ how can they not get the price that is shown is the list of planes...the same as when you click on a plane to order?

Banana continues to amaze.....and not in a good way.

Maybe if we are lucky the joke will end and 2013 will be better. Good Luck.

I agree with you BH does have nice stuff, However you just like I proably have a hanger full of their jets as well as warbirds. But Its just upsetting when you patronize them like we do then fell mistreated by them.

I'm not a BH fan but you all have to be the biggest bunch of idiots on the planet!! First do you really think that UPS is going to give a vendor free shipping because you do volume. HELL NO there not. They give a slight rate deduction but that all. So the vendor has to cover cost and the models in china are not penny on the dollar. You are lucky after you ship it here pay customs there cut and sell the model to make maybe 20% and out of that you have building rent, payroll, Insurance,advertising and other cost and you act like a bunch of little girls NOTHING IS FREE!!! Yes free shipping is not free you pay for it just not directly
GET OVER IT ALREADY!!!

Hell yeah Free. When you say FREE SHIPPING that does not mean add $30 to base price. With the profit margins and price games and advertise a sale...make it a sale.

Try paying attention to what they do....talk about a circus.

Yep you are right...if you are stupid enough to cope with their games.... then you are the sucker.

This little girl will continue to whine about LOUSY Vendors. If you don't like it... move on... this thread is about the issue we see.

BH might have forgotten - CONSUMER IS KING.
