Well it's no secret that SS Staff has been getting pretty creative with the end of season sales (cinco de mayo and the wish list sale to name a few) and with the way things are going I don't think we've seen the last of them. Trying to get rid of last seasons stock to make room for new inventory (inventory cost) and I heard you guys are moving to a new warehouse (moving/restocking cots)????? :)

Well I got a sales idea just for food for thought. How about a sale for returning customers that have purchased a board from SS in the last 6 months gets some type of deal on their next board purchase within a short time frame...

"2 days only! Buy a board in the last 6 months get an additional 15-20% off your next board purchase"

Type of deal...

Anyway just an idea!

Wow, relax. Sierra is all about sales this season, it doesn't hurt to share ideas on the next possible creative sale idea dude. Obviously you can't find sierra's prices anywhere else as is but we've been spoiled...like it or not.

And re-read my post, no one's "asking", just food for thought.

lol panther.
and Vick, its people that come into these forums and make threads like this just looking for something even cheaper that annoys people, its not just me. stuff like this is just bad for these forums.
also i doubt sierra needs help with sale ideas from some random dude.
they just had a sale YESTERDAY, do you really think you should be giving "ideas" the day after a rediculous sale?

No, you think about my thread, it's about the NEXT potential sale, due to the last two...

And not every sale has an effect on everyone. For example if you own just a pair of EST bindings and the sale is for disc binding boards(non-burton)...

SIMPLY a thread for an idea on the potential next sale blown way out of proportion!

wow stoked getting your points for the day?  i agree with ice; these threads are getting tiresome.  Enjoy the 50% sale and if they discount later enjoy the price change and credit.

you should stop asking for more sales, they have the best prices anywhere to begin with. its only human to want more discounts but give them room for some profit also you know.

for my creative sale idea-- 1point per 5$ isntead of 10$

I might be wrong, but isn't "The Staff Pick Sale" going on this week? Which means Cinco de Mayo was just a coincidental overlap? Maybe they made the sale sweeter since it was Cinco de Mayo, but there was going to be "The Staff Pick Sale" regardless of Cinco de Mayo.

In my opinion, here is a problem with your sale of:
"2 days only! Buy a board in the last 6 months get an additional 15-20% off your next board purchase."

From a business standpoint, Sierra would want to bring it new customers or customers who hasn't been shopping here for awhile. The sale you purpose only rewards recent customers, which doesn't expand the customer base. It is a great idea for their current customer base, but they already have the point system to stay here.

I personally think these types of thread is a double edge sword. It is great because the more collaboration you get, most likely the better the ideas you get. But in the other hand, it might be a place to ask too much, be unreasonable, and/or spiteful. 

I also think it is hard for a person not working with Sierra know what kind of deals they are able to make, and what deals they cannot afford to make. Just my 2 cents.

Calm down people, it was just an idea!
Great ideas can come from collaboration (even between a business and its customer base). Sierra has displayed a willingness to collaborate and I don't think Vick was out of line making a SUGGESTION.
Obviously Sierra would want to draw new customers in but they have shown that they care about keeping people around and already have a lot of incentives for long-term customers.
I'm not 100% on board with the original idea - I think it needs some work and that's where the collaboration part comes in...but on the other side I think it's more valid than "give me points/discount because it's my birthday/mother's day/chinese new year"

Meh...TGIF I guess!
