silver ticket website question

So, I was just curious about the format of the pricing on the website. Are the screens currently on sale or promotion or this is just the format they use to get you to purchase their product? The this is what you pay this is what you save method of advertising? I have been on other vendors websites that use the same technique, it's hard for me to tell because I have no other website to shop to compare their product to.

Yeah, I’d ignore those blue “save x amount” icons. I just checked and those are the prices they’ve been charging for at least 5 years. They’re a great company with great value and good quality. I actually have had their 120” screen for about 3yrs now. That said, I’ve gotta admit that’s a pretty cheesy marketing tactic.

LOL That's what I figured. I'm going to wind up in the 110-120 range myself not sure if it will be white or high contrast but there seems to be tons of info on here I'll just keep reading 100's of pages of conversation on comparisons. Thanks for the heads up!

I wish they offered a few larger sizes in acoustically transparent screens.

Consumers are addicted to sale pricing. Retailers just feed consumers what they crave

In some states/provinces it’s illegal to advertise something as “sale price” unless the item is sold at the “regular price” at least some of the time. Note, however, in this case they use the term “save $xxx” to mean relative to “comparable products” from brand name manufacturers.

Some of the Silver Ticket screens are also sold on Amazon.com, in which case you can use a price tracker to check the price history, for example

Thanks, I’ve never heard of that site before. Pretty interesting.

Haha. Yea they do, what ever gets people to spend their money. The fear of missing out. FOMO as my wife’s friend says. We had no idea what it meant and had to google it. I must be getting old.
