    Not a problem.. We'll allow you to use $30 of the gift certificate on a 300 purchase, and save the other 20 for a 200 purchase later.

    Larry,

    Maybe you should edit the FAQ statement to address this and curb some questions or misunderstandings down the road, it could make things easier for Joe. (Did I just say that?) You know how he gets with that complex math stuff...

    It is a shame that some feel the need to take advantage of a good thing. Props to you guys for trying to keep the offer out there for the real customers.

    Good thought... Just did. Added this:

    Since we've made this change, we will also make it that you do not have to use the entire certificate at one time. Let's suppose you've earned a $50 gift certificate, and you want to buy a $400 BC. We will allow you a $40 credit (10%) of your certificate, and you can save the other $10 credit to use toward a $100 purchase later.

    See now I'm wondering if I should be feeling pangs of guilt. I MIGHT have had a 100 dollar order for my 10 GC (actually, yeah, it was 2 of the 2008 model shockwave LED's when they were closing out) but I know my 50 GC was on a 300 order, Hollis reg for the wife, and booties for the daughter (damn feet grow too fast, at least she's in the wife's size now).

    I'm one of those deal scavengers, and I like to stack discounts. I'll use gift cards and 10% forum deals, etc. I'm pretty sure that until recently I was getting the 10% off even on items that said "no other discounts apply".

    I went into the shop one day a year ago and found a SL960 strobe loose in a box under a pile of crap (no offense guys, but I've compared it to shopping in your grandparents attic, there are treasures you just have to dig), we got down to 99 bucks for it, then I still had the guts to ask for my 10% off too!

    But that's how I am...I'm a deal dog, I sniff, dig, scratch at a deal, and EVENTUALLY BUY.

    However - multiple logons for 10 dollar gift cards, that's just ridiculous. You could save the 10 bucks by investing that time hunting for a good deal, or waiting to buy when something REALLY comes on sale. No need to be dishonest. I'm not saying that my integrity isn't for sale, I'm just saying if it is, it costs more than 10 bucks. Now if you ask me to hold onto your winning powerball ticket for you, hmmmm.

    Thanks for keeping the incentive out there for the customers who appreciate it. You guys have earned my business, you keep earning it, I keep giving it to you.
    Slowly exhale, relax, your brain will kick in...and if you can breath and think calmly, there's not too much you can't figure out, in any part of life.

    I guess there will always be some that will try to take advantage of a good thing. Thanks for not letting a few sour grapes ruin it for the rest of us honest people.

    I say kill 'em all and let Foo (2) sort them out.

    But I agree. too bad. Everybody is trying to screw "da man". Unfortunately here, Larry is the Man.

    I was thinking, maybe 500 posts give them a gift card. Skip the 10 for 10. After 500 I suppose if they don't become members of the community at least the man behind the curtain can get a lock on them.

    I have to agree with Splitlip. People are less likely to take advantage of the situation if they actually have to work for their gift certificates.

    Unfortunately I probably won't use the $50 gift certificate. It just doesn't make any sense to spend $500 to save $50. I'll still buy from Scuba Toys and use the forum but it's a shame that some people will not even think twice before taking advantage of others.

    Yeah, but remember.

    You can break out the GC. Buy $50.00 and get a $5.00 discount.
    Over the life of your diving career, you will get the $50.00.

    And the nature of the activity, I would be surprised if you did not redeem the $50.00 within months.
