      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Reveal your internet pro deal codes!

Recommended Posts

Correct me if I'm wrong, but revealing/bragging/outing bro-deal codes/savings/etc. is the single best way to have the deal jerked from you. Why would you want to do something stoopid like that?

It is indeed - and every retailer tracks who uses said pro codes!

Oh, I don't know that it is the best way... you could always wander in to a retail location, try on a bunch of stuff and then loudly brag that you won't be paying these prices because your organization XYZ has a pro deal. That would get you swiftly booted as well.

 

Having said that, yes, farming out your pro deal access is definitely a very good way of getting placed on the vendor's shit list.

Recently, companies have been rather quick to yank pro deals from vendors, guide services, university outdoor programs, and even avalanche centers. I don't really have a problem with people trying to circumvent high retail prices, but I would recommend being as discreet as possible about it.

Yes, mk, that was essentially what I was getting at with the "bragging" reference in my first post. Gotta be pretty dumb to pull a stunt like that.

It's a good thing no manufacturers and stores read cascadeclimbers!

Since this board is sponsored by companies you would essentially be deceiving (in an overt, public way even), anyone posting codes here will get the boot.

 

everyone loves to get the bro-down, but this isn't the place to rip off our sponsors and put worthy pro deals in jeopardy (such as avie center or rescue club discounts).

 

Sorry, but I'm sure you can understand why!

Jens, I apologize but I've removed your post. I think everyone loves a good deal, but in light of Grivel NA ceasing to exist and numerous other ventures finding themself in an increasing perilous state I think we have a responsibility to protect their interests whether they show ads here or not.

Jon, no need to apologize. Jens' request was misguided to say the least. He should have known better in the first place. Thanks Jon.
