Subject: BL Enlighten Serger Price Date: 12/1/12 10:15 AM

I went to my local Babylock dealer with all intentions of buying either the Imagine or Enlighten that day. I read through all the information on both machines, reviews, and pricing before I went to the store. I settled with the Enlighten due to lighting and some other things.

When we started talking pricing they quoted msrp of $3499 and a 'special' price of $2199. This includes a trade in and the 6 accessory feet, inspirational guide, and 4 spools of Maderia thread that BL is currently as a promotion. When I look at the reviews here and elsewhere this price seems to be about $400 more than others have paid.

There is another dealer about 30" away that I can contact but I just wanted to get the opinions of others regarding the price. $2199 just seems to be really high. I asked about the Evolution and they said that was *about* $3500.

HELP please! Thanks Martha

I live in Canada, I bought today an Enlighten for $1699.00 and I got 6 feet. The price are supposed to be highier in Canada.

The dealer I purchased from also quoted the MSRP of $3500 and a sale price with promo of $2200, same as yours - however I had no trade-in. This was in Oct., shortly after the current promo started. HTH's What blew my mind was the sale price of (I'm almost positive) $2900 for the Evolution. I was tempted.

Unlike many other things, the prices for Babylocks, Berninas and Pfaffs tend to be less expensive in Canada than in the USA.

Congrats on your new Enlighten! I love mine to pieces, best serger I've ever used by miles!

Thanks Lynn, that helps explain the gap between the US and Canadian pricing. There just seems to be such a large spread even within the US. Martha
