I was really fustrated with Amain coupons. Their codes are generally less than Towers and plenty online sellers sells parts for 20% cheaper thanthem anyway.

When the codes werent working, the advisor was unhelpful to the point of ridicule me the customer.

I'll avoid them from now on. They used to have the best services but getting big makes them complacent and arrogant

I haven't made many RC purchases online for about a year (unusual for me) but have generally been very happy with them over the years. I got a $20 voucher when my RC10 re-re pre order fell through (not their fault that the production run was ALOT smaller than widely speculated) - they didn't have to do that. But they did.
Sure, coupons are small, but their snail mail rates are generally ridiculously low ... Often for stuff $50-$100 the postage to Australia is between .60 & $2-$6 .... surely that's got to be below cost ... ?
I'm not promoting Amain over Tower;or visa versa (Tower:great coupons which offset somewhat pricey shipping - at least relative to Amain)
So in short, unless things have dramatically changed with their customer service I'm quite happy to throw some cash their way and get a small store credit to use a month later .... just waiting for the new codes to come out (patiently taps fingers)

Bad news on the Amain codes guys. I wanted to place an order and was waiting like all of you for the January codes to come through. I sent an email to customer service to see what was happening. Here is their reply. This was followed by an email offering Free shipping on Local orders. Pity i'm in Australia and free shipping to me is not valid. Looks like stormers and Towers are going to get more of my money now...

Very disappointing from amain!

First stopping their 10% codes, now stopping these lame savings also.
Tower must be loving it, I know myself and others have significantly scaled back purchases from amain and try purchase elsewhere.

I think it would be cheaper getting it through Tower with their coupon. For January, they have $20 off over $200. So you could get a B5 for $219.

Towers has two codes that would work if you are a member; one if you get just the buggy, another if you grab a couple parts to bring up the total. Kit is 260 shipped on towers.

$235 $35 011T4
$300 $45 011T5

Wow, that is very disappointing. I still will shop with AMAIN, because of their great customer service.

Yeah, towers only good if your a AE guy. They havent much of anything I use. TLR or Serpent.

So I still use Amain, Stormer or Absolute hobbies.
