Special Price FOR EEVblog Members
« on: April 04, 2013, 05:54:58 pm »
Everyone.  I would like to set up some special EEVblog member pricing on tequipment.
Would that be of interest?  I dont want to spam the boards so I thought I would just post this.

Thanks everyone and Dave,

Also I know you guys dont like our international credit card requirements.  Well we dont either.  If you use paypal internationally most of these requirements go away. 

Note we cant ship Fluke, Tek, or Flir overseas.

I appreciate the attempt here to try to provide a service to us specifically. I  am interested in better pricing of course.

My biggest problem is that I do not receive paper copies of my card statements, which you required for proof, and I had a Paypal account that had a different country for my shipping address than was for my billing address. Paypal has now fixed my account so I do have a separate country, that of my residence, than my billing address country.

Do you allow shipping to me in the case were I have Chile as my shipping country in my Canadian Paypal account?

Someone was trying to organising group Rigol buy:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/group-buy-for-the-rigol-ds2072-dso

I think it may be easier if Evan simply provides a discount coupon code for forum users?
Or perhaps, if enough people agree to buy a single item Evan can provide a temporary discount code to them that isn't made public?

It's certainly an interesting proposition.  Something is definitely better than nothing.

I'd be very interested since I'm really jonesing for a DS2072, but just can't bring myself to that cost. Anything would be awesome. =)

The prices I saw on your website are already interesting without special discount. The problem is that you charge much more for shipping than Batronix or ebay sellers. That's the problem for those who are on this side of the world (Middle-East) I guess.

It is because those companies have dealer agreements with the dealers in other countries and tequipment is not allowed to ship outside of its dealer territory. This is to protect the dealers in the other countries from competition so that they will carry those makes/brands.

I'm scared to ask, but why?


Same reason we had zones for DVDs.

Lightages is correct.

By contact sometimes we cannot send it overseas.
Thanks

I will set up a coupon code today to give a flat discount.  Its a bit complicated as some manufactures have a min sale price that we cannot go below that applies to certain items and with our current back end its not as sophisticated we would like.

Its also possible we can do better than this flat discount.. sometimes there is margin and sometimes there is not.  It depends on the brand or item.  Sometimes a quote is better but I think the flat discount would work for most items.

PM me for the code.  It was set up as I typed this.  This would also work on all clearance.  We are moving a bunch of items out below cost right now.

Thanks for the business,

One thing:
One thing I forgot is with paypal it skips the coupon code spot.  So if you want to order you can either 1.  get a refund for the discount or we can send you a discounted quote that you can convert into an order.

Soon you will be able to sign in and I can assign a member EEVblog tier and all the pricing on the site will be special for you. 

Thanks
Evan

That sounds great. Can't argue with a discount!

This is a nice idea.  Thanks for setting it up for us, Evan.
 
Unfortunately, as you know I've had what I'm calling some "bad luck" with you a few times (I emailed you on this April 5, 2013).  Even so, I have read many good experiences and opinions of Tequipment's service from people on this forum.  So I must believe that in most of the issues my experiences have been the exception, not the rule.
 
My experience does show your staff is friendly and does aim to be helpful, and the idea of giving this discount is another proof of your good will and desire to earn and keep our business.  For some reason even with my string of bad luck I find myself wanting to keep ordering from you, haha.
 
Thanks again for coming up with this discount!

Oh I just ran across this thread. I already had made an account on tequipment.net last month because I knew I wanted to start upgrading some of my test equipment. The first thing I wanted to get was a Rigol DM3058E this summer. I'll give this discount a shot when I'm ready.

I just got a quote for a DS4014 this morning. In the email request, I mentioned that I'm an EEVBlog member, and the quote I got back was noticeably less than retail. Not hugely so, but definitely worth asking for.

Everyone.  I just saw I had a pile of messages to reply to.  I gave access to my account so there will not be a delay again. 

In about 8 weeks I will have the ability to give you a login to the site with custom EEVBLOG pricing.  Once you login the pricing would be specific to eevblog tier. For now please pm me for the code.

Ive been working for 2+ years on a new system. More to come soon.
Thanks
Evan Cirelli
