    Question Shops increasing price on X-Maxx once they get it in stock?

    When a (large) Swedish webstore with mutiple physical stores got it in stock they raised price from 8300 SEK including Swedish tax to 10000 SEK including Swedish tax. Pretty large % increase just because it went from preorder to stock?

    Have you experienced this as well in youre country?

    Thanks.

    $1149 CAD is the equivalent to $791 US dollars. And your original price was $708 US?

    Supply Low. Demand high. Price high to control demand for the allowed supply. I think yall will understand.

    Ive orderd one for 8265 SEK including tax which I should get before weekend.
    Looks like the store I purchased it from will increase price to 9995 SEK at some point in time because its now listed as (special price).

    Some shops are actually honouring the pre-order price if placed prior to price jump, which is good of them.

    I pre ordered in November at 649. It was supposed to arrive 21st December. In between all this, the UK price went up to 769, but my pre order price was still honoured. IT got to the 8th of January, still no truck so I cancelled my pre order. As far as I know no UK shops have them yet.....

    I walked out of my LHS for 788.06 after tax. Guy I deal with in Maine gives me a little off here and there on trucks. Last year I carried 19 trucks out of his shop, most had been used.

    I paid 720, no tax, and cash. You always do better paying with cash.
