    I hear guys mentioning these all the time but I never seem to get any. Is it a phone-in only deal or do they come by mail?

    Thanks in advance

    You phone in your order and tell them that music123 is offering 15% off with this code 15off4u. Make sure that music 123 carries the same item and they will beat the discount by giving you 20% off. They are aware of the competitor's discounts and product offerings. Check out the other online retailers and you may find even bigger discounts which they will match or beat.

    Just tried this to no avail! They had me on the hold for about 10 minutes and then said they couldn't offer me the discount.

    Very odd as MF and Music 123 are one and the same. In fact their inventories are identical.

    If you get on their mailing list and give them your e-mail address they send out special offers periodically. They do usually have a "phone only" special around this time of year but I don't remember seeing one this year.

    Last time I got one was over a year ago in the mail. It was to boost the phone orders so you had to call it in. It was like trying to order from a chimp.

    I do all my buying I possibly can from one guy, a sales rep at sweetwater. When I want something, I email him and tell him what it is and ask what price he can give me. Because of our ongoing sales relationship, he gives me great deals on everything, so I stopped shopping around. That's the way to do it, imho.

    Could have been because of what I was ordering, a couple of george L's cable kits.

    Sweetwater is great, I usually order from there but I ended up with some musicians friend gift certificates.

    I have definitely had these kinds of relationships before, but I find myself buying retail less and less just because there are so many great deals to be had in these forums. BUT, in this case, I want the great deal and the safety of a return policy- that and the fact that a nice fellow from the internet sent me a $20 MF gift certificate for helping him.

    The product I'm considering is Digidesign's Eleven Rack and I'm just not sure if it's worth the money since I already have a PODX3, Flextone III, and 2 POD Pros. I'm telling myself it's next generation stuff, but who really knows...

    Thanks for all the help, guys.

    Hey dognmoon, I haven't seen the 20% off sale in a while but last year I got my M13 using that promotion. This year they seem to keep it at more like 15%.
