I saw a commercial for SOB of battery powered OPE and they were offering buy a tool with battery and charger kit and get a second battery at half price. Seems like a pretty fair promotion.

Michael, SOB = some other brand. OPE = outdoor power equipment.

Thanks for clearing that up, was thinking something different than "some other brand."

I was thinking that SOB was the brand name.

Ego already gives you a free power tool when you buy a battery...

Steve, I suggest going back and reading what I wrote. In addition to purchasing a tool, battery and charger kit, the other brand offers another battery that can be purchased at half price when the kit is bought.

Mike
a) does the other brand give as large a discount on the kit as Ego does
b) I took Steve's comment as a bit tongue in cheek as we have all commented on the crazy pricing discounts with Ego kits

Szwoopp, 
a) don't know, don't care. A half priced battery with kit purchase would sell more EGO products IMO.
b) agreed about pricing. 
Edited to add: But, individual battery pricing is a bit of a problem for many so if they can get a second battery at half price I think it might encourage more folks to buy EGO.

Yes my comment was tongue in cheek.  

I haven't ever seen any EGO sales. I'm sure they happen, but I have yet to see even a $50 off promotion myself. That said, if a sale like this ever were to occur, there are still a few tools I need to complete my collection...

Steve, you really have to keep an eye out on the Home Depot ads, Ace ads, things like that. EGO does have sales but you really have to watch for them. We try to mention them here on the forum when we see them, but since we aren't EGO employees we aren't privvy to all of the sales so we can surely miss some.
