Is $4399 a good price? My dealer won't budge.

What is included? USB stick? BSR? The description of the USB stick is a little dicey....does it have to be a Bernina USB stick?

Are you set on a Bernina?

Have you checked with other dealers?

I think its in the ball park. I checked my notes for when I was pricing last June and full list at that point was $4699. Bernina had increases of 15% - 25% on 1/1/08. Using the 15% increase, list would be $5404. Your price of $4399 would then be 19% off list. Now that is a lot of assumptions, but it makes me think its in range. Bernina does have special promotions through the year, you might be able to get a better price during one of those. The 630 is a wonderful machine!

I think that is a reasonable price for the 630e. It's a terrific machine!

Thanks for the info. I decided to go ahead and purchase it. So, I'll be checking out the boards for tips since I'm a super novice! Thanks again for the quick responses

When does Bernina typically have sales? Specific holidays? Seasons? I am also considering a higher end Bernina and am choking at the full price.

jbtambien - I'd sign up for the Bernina newsletter or call your local dealer for information. I don't know if it was a national sale for President's Day weekend but I bought my Activa for 25% off MSRP prior to President's Day weekend (I just asked if they had a special going and the man said they would next weekend. I explained that I was visiting and I only had the rental car for the day. He went and asked if I could get the discount and the answer was yes.). Check the berninausa.com website.

Speaking of sales, as a Leap Year Special..my local Bernina dealer is offering a free Activa 210 with the purchase of the 730e. I don't know what the price of the 730e might be.

If you live near a large city that hosts one of the big quilt shows or sewing expos, often a local Bernina dealer has the Bernina vendor booth and has great prices on machines used in the workshops.

Otherwise, just go talk to the dealer, tell them you cannot afford full price and to let you know when there will be a sale.
