    Secret Prices? Why only list the retail price?

    I have decided to venture into the surf to hunt. Need to get a water detector. So I did some research and found that the Whites Surf PI Pro appears to be a decent detector. OK, so now I would like to know what it costs.

    I just spent over an hour searching the web and all I see is the suggested retail price if any price at all is listed. Most sites do not even post a price. What is the big secret? Do these dealers NOT want to sell their detectors?

    Yes, I could call, but it is almost 10PM and most likely no one is open at this hour and besides, why do I have to make a dozen phone calls to find out what the item costs?I thought the idea of having a web page was to show the items for sale and then tell the prospective customer the price of the merchandise.

    Frustrating to say the least.

    Does anyone know of a site that actually has the price listed or is eveone selling it at the suggested retail price?

    Thanks.

    Re: Secret Prices? Why only list the retail price?

    It's most likely a deal Whites has negotiated with it's dealer network so a cut-throat battle doesn't begin that would only end up hurting the manufacturers good name.

    If you can use a local dealer, it would sure be best, if at all possible!

    ...LoL I know a guy who sold his house and moved to a rental... He made up a list of what he needed for the new place and faxed a request for bids to a whole flock of local stores.

    Might be worth a try

    I have done business with Kellyco before. They are about 40 miles from me. I have considered contacting them also. Can't say much for the freebie items, but I have not had any problems with my purchases from them.

    Thanks for your input.

    That would make sence, but makes shopping for a new Whites detector frustrating.

    Catfishjk1,

    That is very good news. Not that Kellyco can not beat the price, but that you actually have a real price. Thanks for taking the time to get this informtion for me. I have been very busy with work the past week and have not had a whole lot of free time. Definately will keep Clevenger's in mind when I am ready to buy.

    Re: Secret Prices? Why only list the retail price?

    I'm pretty frugal so shopped around when I bought my MXT. The price was the same, msrp, everywere from what I was told. I ain't afraid to ask for the "managers discount" that I made up. Payed full price but got him to pay the tax, 8.25%, got another 4x6 coil for $40, a pinpointer and headphones free and a 12" loop half price. Also sometimes the White's website has E coupons.
    Truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but, in the end, there it is.

    Urban Prospector,
    That is a good idea, about the coupon. Will have to check around to see if there is one for the surf PI. Thanks.

    Re: Secret Prices? Why only list the retail price?

    Just to let you know, all dealers are under contract not to show prices online for White's detectors that ix why you have to call... I will only say that the price that is shown in the post above is the actual sale price on a normal daily basis and contrary to the post above, we can go lower. Just give Kellyco a Call... 1-800-898-6673

    Check it out on Kellyco's website. I personally just combed through 10 reviews for that detector *alone* - http://www.kellycodetectors.com/whit...tes-Pi-Pro.htm <--- Select the "Read Reviews" link under the picture. Good luck!
