1. What does SSTB mean? See our glossary of acronyms.

Is there a specific place in these forums to post found deals?

    Maybe it is discouraged for good reason, but if I find a notably good price on a piece am I allowed to post it for others to see? Would it just go in the thread for that particular model or is there somewhere to dump info like that?

    I could see how it could be abused by merchants trying to drum up business.

    I already submitted a post with a found deal in the Counterfits area because it seemed possible, considering the price, that what I found wasn't the authentic product. That particular deal jumped out at me because I wasn't expecting to see any legitimate vaporizer gear for sale on that website, although they have had ecig junk on there for a while amongst the cheap electronics, kitchen knives, flashlights, etc. that litter all of the "daily deals" clearance type sites out there.

    It seems that as the legal landscape for MJ is changing we'll start to see more of this stuff show up for sale at dealers who never carried it before, so sharing found deals might be beneficial.

    Or possibly you guys are already doing this and I just haven't found that part of the forums yet. :)

    I think I remember Sears selling the launch box online a few months ago

    They do found the link :

    http://m.sears.com/search=magic flight launch box vaporizer

    Edit: They have a water pipe adapter but i can't find it on the MF site?

    http://m.sears.com/magic-flight-launch-box-vaporizer-water-pipe-adapter/p-SPM8654482932


    Edit 2: they also have a book on vaporizing medical mj.
    http://m.sears.com/search=magic flight launch box vaporizer

    They also carry other vapes like the solo. No in store pickup though.

    There you go, vaporizers at Sears. I never would've even checked Sears.

    And some of their prices are better than what I found on that daily deals site.

    We have reliable and recommended dealers here- http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/retailer-discussion-discounts.1802/

    And supporting dealers here- http://fuckcombustion.com/forums/supporting-retailers.19/

    We don't really want a 'best deal' section. Extra low pricing usually means no warranty and/or service. We'll stick with proven providers.


    m.sears.com - Have you really looked at that site? Does Sears, where you can buy anything from tires to underwear, accept only PayPal? Do they accept PayPal at all? It's no to both and this website would clearly like you to think it's the real Sears and Roebuck. Buy here at your own risk.

    It seems like it is the real sears, "m." is just mobile.
    But the vape is just being hosted on sears like amazon 3rd-party vendors.

    "Sold by: Low Pro Deals"

    They have 400 items including some boro. For sale through sears.
    The point still stands, that you'd probably have to get your warranty through this obscure 3rd-party vendor - which is surely a case of 'buy at your own risk'.

    edit: The seller only has 1 review, and it's 3/5 stars. Yikes!

    That explains it. I didn't realize that Sears has also gone the 'sell your shit here' route. I still say buyer beware if you want warranty or service.

    I have never bought a Vape from Sears and agree with max. @combust stated "It seems that as the legal landscape for MJ is changing we'll start to see more of this stuff show up for sale at dealers who never carried it before, so sharing found deals might be beneficial." Never thought Sears would allow stuff like this on their site so I thought I'd share. It's a step in the right direction I think.

    With PayPal you have protection, as far as getting the product, or your money back, but vape makers do vary in their warranty rules, so sometimes a low price comes at a cost, if you need service.

    It's not like it's the ol' Sears and Roebuck we knew and loved. Just an internet marketplace that is now a part of the Sears holding company(no more Roebucks). It's more like ebay and it's "buyer beware ... and If it looks to good to be true ..." despite the sears name.

    Isn't that the national motto: "Let the buyer beware!"
    Not a bad philosophy. Pay attention when you give up money. Doesn't seem negative to me.
    It is no "Abandon Hope , all who enter"
