Orange PPC412 HP Biggest deal I have seen?

I enjoy looking around in this bad economy for great deals online.
I have found a 2 New Fender American standard Telecasters at great deals in recent months.
2 days ago I saw a NEW Orange PPC412 HP for $749 with free shipping from a small online music store but i really
didnot know if I wanted to pull the trigger since these are going for $1000 -$1100.
Yep I thought it was a great price
But I called MusiciansFriend.com and see what they could do,well a few Mins wait on the
phone and the salesperson from MusiciansFriend.com said that he can match that price and give me a better deal of $598 with free shipping.
I really don't see how these people make any money butttt I bought it and felt it was
a great deal.
Now there is no need too look for anymore guitar cabinets....JT

Yep that was the place when I saw the $749 price,,,It had free shipping until I called them
and the free shipping was gone on their website while I was on the phone.(guess they took it down,buttt they had a 14% instant rebate so the price was $755 with shipping....

I felt lets give Musicfriend a call just for kicks and felt that they would not come close in price.
Guess I was wrong
A few mins of waiting and the salesman came back and said he can give me the cabinet for
$598 (the people from MF sound very professional}

I still don't get it why I got the cabinet so cheap???
Yes they Match the $749 and gave me free shipping
Yes they even Matched the 14% discount
But for some reason I got a extra $50 - $60 discount,,,makes no sense but I know I am getting one this week in the mail lol.......JT

They matched the $749 and took off the 14% so it was $640 with no tax and free shipping. Dunno how you got the extra $40 off.

I agree
I don't have a clue about the $598 and was wondering that you got the same deal.
Butttt at $640 thats also a great deal
I think they screwed up with the $42 I guess lol.Even at $640 I would have bought that Cabinet and glad I was able to help a few lucky folks out there...............JT

What? How on earth does this work? Looking on UK site's the best price for a new 4x12 with free shipping is 729.00, well probably not the best price but all the reputable sites seem to be exactly that. 729.00 in dollars is apparently $1168.73, this is above normal in UK to US prices, US always seems to be a lot cheaper but not half the price.
But on top of that the cabinet is made in England than shipped across the Atlantic...and comes out the other end at half the cost, am I missing something here?

Oh. Looks like they'll also add 10% of the difference but you've normally gotta ask. That would bring it down to $598.

Yes, gear is always cheaper here, even cheaper than the country of manufacture. America!
