Ok.... to help explain some price changes... I see the increase on prices, but now no oversize charge.... Funny Marketing Plan from BH. NEGATIVE IMPACT as far as I can tell.

That's what I thought at first, too, but prices didn't go up - they just aren't splitting out the oversized charges now. Which I personally prefer. The P-38 I bought was showing as $189.90 the day before, but then when I clicked through, adjusted to $199.90 due to the $10 oversize fee. Now it just shows as $199.90 on the front end, so I can see the actual prices of items without having to click through to find out what the oversize fee (if any) will be.

I definitely prefer the new approach versus the price updating to the final price after clicking through to the product page. What you pay is still the same, but how the prices are presented was improved.

Nothing ingenius about adding oversize fee to the cost and then not showing it
oversize fee is still added. BH made this move in order to stop the complaining

I'LL let BH keep all that very over priced EPO and help them with shipping by not ordering anything from them.

Ok, the FMS pitts sport 3d biplane was 239.00 yesterday and now it's 259.00, glad I ordered while prices were 20 dollars cheaper, maybe they figure they are loosing to much money with the free shipping so they have to raise prices. First time ordering from BH so far so good package was shipped quickly so I'm happy so far....... Can't wait to get plane and check it out. I know as a hobby shop it's very hard t o please everybody so I don't believe a lot of the complaints, but I guess I'll find out for myself.

Hello pilots.

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,
Nancy P.

Nancy,

I thought the Black Friday sale was just free shipping, sorry did not realize it affected the prices of the plaines, my fault!

Thanks for your response!
