I'm surely not impressed at all with Towers & Horizon's sales this year,

as for Tower's, $10 off on a $150 plane is not much of an incentive to get my Card out, then what did they do with that same plane's price today, they dropped the price $20 yet said I had to pay the shipping unless I join their club, I want it but I'm not going to play their game, you see on Friday I Emailed them and asked a question about that plane's price with the sale, then they lowered the price today and said only club members get shipping free, I tell you, these people have more tricks than a jack rabbet,, 

as for Horizon, I would have spent $500 but there sale is very-very restricted, I can wait or buy elsewhere

I guess the margins must be tight. Twisted Hobbys was playing a game with shipping. Last spring, I purchased one of their planes and if you spent $300 you also got free shipping. I noticed early in November the free shipping mark had jumped up to $350. Interestingly, on Black Friday the discount was 15% but you had to spent $400 to get free shipping. Today, it's back to $350.....

I ordered a few small things from Tower last week, and as ussual i opted to not get a membership. A member ship "club"? Really? Are we all going to meet up at Dunigan's bar to toss back a few cold ones and talk about how the amazing Tower Hobbies membership has changed our lives? How Tower carefully selected each of us to be members of bonafide elete exclusive group of extrardinary gents? Irresistable to women, and the envy of RC sportsmen world wide? Decoder ring perhaps?

The main thing that annoys me about memberships is having to give my information. The funny thing is i placed my order without doing the 5 dollar membership that would probably have saved me 10$ recieve a couple free magazines, free shipping for a year.... and then to complete my order i gave them all my information, which they already had from several previous orders. Sigh. Anyway, I understand your frustration at changing deals... , but next time i will reign in my pride and sign up.

as for the Towers membership, I don't see myself buying from them much more than $50 to a 150 a year for the most part, I don't buy RC cars, Trains or toys, and I have 2 new planes I'm working on now, so I'm not going to worry about joining a club to save only $5 to $10 a year
