HL is having 1/2 off Estes kits & Starter sets this week(Dec.15-20). Here at the Alex HL they still have a few sets of AT Econo Jet 2pks F motors for $20.00. Should I buy them at this price or hope that they will eventually discount them? #### BlueNinja ##### Well-Known Member I think you should wait. It'll go down eventually. #### Johnnie ##### Well-Known Member Go Hobby Lobby, Go Hobby Lobby...gone! I wonder if this includes Quest? Lots of Estes I need to pick up anyways. #### Rocketman35 ##### Well-Known Member Says Estes but usually they just ring'em up. They don't know the diff most of the time. This sale right before xmas too, man i guess the wife not going to get those earrings she wanted. Sorry honey HL having a sale #### Stones ##### Well-Known Member Originally posted by Darian Rachal ... Here at the Alex HL they still have a few sets of AT Econo Jet 2pks F motors for$20.00.

Darian...
I hit up just about every HL in our state when I found out that they wouldn't be carrying the AT line, due to the fact that they couldn't be reordered. I picked up quite a few Econo's for half price.
This didn't have anything to due with a 1/2 off sale. Most of the stores had them marked down when I got to them already and the others....well..I helped persuade them a bit.
Oh, and the salespersons told me they never run motors on sale, at HL.
But, like most people post here, they never seem to pay attention to their own policies and usually, if it's a rocket related item, and it's a 1/2 off sale, they'll give you the price.
I'd bring them (the AT motors) up to the checkout and if they don't give you 1/2 off, I guess decide if you still want them or not.
Either way, HL will not be carrying the AT line of products, according to them, and Joe Burger from AT, in the future. Although Joe says they plan on trying to have HL carry their products again, possibly. At this point, I'd grab the motors at any HL as you more than likely will not see them there again. But, it doesn't hurt to ask if they'll discount them as they are a discontinued item.

Just curious, did they sell you the motors at 1/2 price also? I'm always amazed from store to store how they handle sale policy.

Darian...
You forgot to mention........ roosters on sale again too.
I'm amazed at the differences from cashier to cashier. I stopped today looking for an Executioner for a friend. They were out. I picked up a Screamin Mimi, pack of D12's, and a pack of E9's. The girl didn't give me half off the rocket at first, till I pointed it out. Then she gave me half off of everything. Look for the youngest, newest, cashier that looks like she's worn out.

Stones, I'm surprised anyone remembered my "rooster" comment.

Hey, if roosters are 50% off, does that mean you can go off half-cocked?

I love a 'deal' as much as the next guy, but cannot find it in my heart to intentionally try to sneak some extra merchandise past the check-out people for an extra 50 percent discount.

Don't do this to me! I already spent all my money....WHAAAA!!! Jason #### airforce ##### Well-Known Member Carl!!!! You almost made it. Up until now you haven't mentioned this addiction but here it is, Friday and you had to spear me! I have news......I have not, that's have not, visited any of the 4 H/L that normally suck me in during every 1/2 off sale. I would like to have those 2 kits you mentioned but I will not stop at any H/L stores.... It also helped me because I received my shipment from Fliskits yesterday which contained 2 of Mr. Jims latest offerings. So, I will simply say, thanks for the reminder but I'm not stopping at any H/L. I hope to have Christmas paid for by the next 1/2 off sale.... Merry Christmas!!! #### KenParker ##### Well-Known Member Gee, Randy, who are you trying to convince? You know you WANT to stop at a Hobby Lobby. Go ahead, it's Christmas, indulge yourself a little bit. You still have credit left on that good ole credit card. [Yoda voice: At a Hobby Lobby stop you will. Buy kits you WILL, deny yourself you will NOT. ] #### loopy ##### Well-Known Member Originally posted by KenParker You still have credit left on that good ole credit card. Yeah, and if not, you can always get another one...lol #### airforce ##### Well-Known Member Ken, Take a note.....please do not let Carl stay at you house in the future.......he has obviously infected you with the same virus! My plastic is still hot from Christmas and the therapist, WOW!, have you ever went to a Rocket Therapist???? Very costly. It's diffinately cheaper to admit your problem and indulge!!!! A #### Austin Rocket Therapist???!!! At probably$100 hr, you could have applied it to REAL therapy and bought HL out!!!

ooooohhh...Randy...I hear it calling you...
