Forerunner 305 from buy.com for $209.99 after $50 rebate (Read 804 times)

    I just bought my Forerunner a few weeks ago so I can't take advantage of this deal, but if anyone's interested, buy.com has it for $209.99 after a rebate: http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=202233907&adid=17662

      Seems the rebate applies to the Forerunner 205 also. See: http://www.heartratemonitorsusa.com/Pages/GARMIN/garmin-form.html

        I wished you didn't post that because now I'm compelled to buy one. As if I don't have enough running toys already. Thanks Derek!

              It's been a while since I bought mine but I paid less than $190 without a rebate. Try bizrate.com. You should be able to find someplace selling it at a decent price.

                  Yes, right now it is listed for $186. The 205 is listed at $138.

                    That price which I assume you saw for BuyERetail.com is the after-rebate price. It is a bit cheaper though. I would much prefert o buy it from someone like Amazon.com that IS an authorized reseller and their after-rebate price is $209. When you factor in shipping, Amazon.com is only $10 more.

                      Do you know what difference it makes? Does it effect your warranty service or something? I didn't even think of this when I bought mine from RoadRunnerSports.com last year. I would have assumed that a major running supplier like that would be "official" but apparently it's not on the list! Oops! Shocked

                        I've heard some people say that it affects your warranty, but I've heard about people that still got warranty coverage even though they didn't buy it from an authorized reseller. There may be no or mininal risk involved, but I guess my point was that for $10 extra, I would go with an authorized reseller. Now, if the price difference were much larger, then it may make a difference.
