    Which Stern distributor has the best prices on LEs? I’m in Indiana and would like to avoid sales tax (if still possible?) and would need the game delivered/shipped to me. So, which distributor should I be contacting for the best overall deal?

    Thanks!

    Your best bet is to call around and get prices. Then you will know the real math without being mislead.

    I use Gameroomguys! JJ at GEX is also a good bet! You want good delivery,and someone to stand behind your purchase!! Sometimes the best price isn't always the best deal!!example,a few years back I wanted a GB/LE,but they were sold out,also couldn't find a Pre either! So,a dealer from Pinovators,(they do the best headphone mod) told me he had a nib GB/PRe with everything,and a great price to boot! Ok,purchased it,was delivered ok,but no shaker motor I had paid for! And a week later node board #8 blew and I had a hell of a time getting Stern to recognize my warranty! So go easy and do the research! have fun,B safe!!!!

    Or just wait 2-4 weeks when people start selling them for 7800- 8200. Every single time this happens.

    Is that because his inventory is so large?

    Everyone neglects to remember the fact that if you keep the box in pristine conditon you can later sell it for “new out of box” pricing

    Someone has to buy NIB at some point in order for us to get those HUO deals.

    Yea, there are a lot of people (myself included) that are just going to be skipping out on NIB sterns for the foreseeable future and just buying used. Why pay the premium or risk playfield defects or them cost cutting by using smaller cabinet hinges or something else. Why pay the sales tax that comes with NIB purchases? I think the NIB market is in trouble.

    I think Stern needs to beef up the Stern rewards program. Offer the $1,000 discount to the 3,000 IFPA people and not just the top 1,000.

    I’m always glad to see new distributors pop up and make a splash. Did he buy out another distributor or just get his own distributorship?

    Ive never heard of this program!
    Doesnt seem fare at all. I also cant believe they would even offer a discount.

    I think he took over Larry Kitchen’s operation.

    $1000 discount from MSRP or from actual street prices?

    It’s not cut and dry. Ime the rewards program, if better than street prices, it’s not by much.

    Good question and I’ve always heard mixed reports on that. Best I can tell from friends who received the discount and used it is it’s about $500 better than street prices at the end of the day.
