Anyone know of any good helmet sales out there this weekend?

Equus Now is offering 20% off helmets on the 11th! I highly recommend them - I've made several purchases through their website and they've been a pleasure to deal with. Generally free shipping on $100 or more.

I got an e-mail from Dover at some point in the last few days... I did not really pay attention to it very closely, I just know most helmets are going to be on sale.

I talked to dover this morning. The response I got was interesting. Something to the effect of "GPA is not offering a generous discount" so to give a "bigger" discount they are going to roll back the prices to the black numbers on the website and offer the discount on the full MSRP- pretty much eliminating any worthwhile discount.

Socrjul, that is likely not Dover's fault. Some manufacturers set minimum prices and the store can't go below them, it is in their distributorship contracts and very common, and legal. GPA is well-known to do this.

A tack shop by me is offering 20% off including GPAs. Not sure what their original price is though.

When I chatted with a Dover CS rep online yesterday, she confirmed that teh GPA discount is 15% off the List Print (normal "black" text price in the catalog; not off the coupon/discount/"red" price). It's still less than the coupon price, but don't forget to add back in shipping (+ tax depending on your state).

I didn't ask specifically about other helmet brands, but I believe they are honoring the discounts from all manufacturers that are participating.

Unfortunately, our local tack shops aren't participating (boo!), but their in-store regular price is the same as Dover's catalog List price - and they give a number of "local" discounts (pros, some specific barns, etc).

Just to clarify, for the National Helmet Awareness Day, our GPA discount will be 20% off MSRP (black price) which is the lowest price allowed by this manufacture for this day only.

Jun. 10, 2011, 06:20 PM
Sounds like a holiday to me! Think I may have an excuse to finally get a new helmet! 20% off and free shipping have been the best deals I have seen as well.

Jun. 10, 2011, 06:46 PM
