I recieved an email from Amazon .I don't know if these prices are really 50% off so you would have to check them out for yourselves.

Oh my gosh, I just bought a Brother PE770 this week so I would have died if it was half off but when I checked Amazon, the price of it actually went up! Thanks so much for the alert!

The website camelcamelcamel.com is excellent for checking Amazon's prices. They track what the prices have been over various periods of time.

The CS6000i (which I think is a great beginners machine) is an excellent price at $145, but it is NOT 68% off. The list price they have is ABSURD- it has been listed for most of the past year at about $160, not over $400! Most websites have it for around the $160 price.

Very misleading sale. (But thanks for the alert- I've been looking at the coverstitch, but it is still a bit too expensive for me.)

Yeah, Amazon does this, it's of the MSRP, which NOBODY sells these machines for.

I doubled checked the 1034D (which is the one I want, but can't seem to pull the trigger), and it's still the same price it's been all year, which is "59% off" the $400+ price. I've never seen it higher than $250-ish. Amazon and Walmart have always sold it for under $200.

I'm guessing the other machines are the same. I had a similar email for "National Sewing Month" and the prices weren't any different.

EXCEPT..

1. When the dealer is big into playing *the trade-in game*
2. When the dealer is playing the *trade up* game
3. When the dealer doesn't have any significant local competition

IMO, of course.
