Default amainhobbies any pros or cons when ordering from them

I am considering ordering from A Main Hobbies for the first time and I was just wondering if anybody had any input as to what my experience will be. I have a large order and just want to make sure I get everything in a timely fashion. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

Amain has really great customer service and rewards points program. My son and I order most all our RC parts and kit from there. The only stuff I don't is Tamiya stuff that I have to get else where because Amain doesn't handle much Tamiya.

I got cut from the thread for being too bold, but had positive stuffs to say. Since I can't be completely honest and say what I feel, the pc correct version is above. Haha.

Not really, it went up and Matt mod didn't like the reference so he took it down. He said it wasn't necessary. I felt it was needed at the time when I responded.

No biggie, I just hate when people put someone down, but don't clarify and be clearly objective about what's what. That kind of post should be removed imo. All posts putting someone down are fine, as long as they come with objective reasoning that makes some kind of sense and/or leaves enough for some resolution or arbitration.

If we don't back our sponsors, they could back out at any time. Having spoke to some of the sponsors (the owners), I know what their thoughts are about forums, etc. We should be grateful they are here.

Have a good weekend, guys.

The only thing I disliked are the wine vouchers they keep sending with my orders lol. It'd be nice if my doc let me drink but unfortunately a case of wine is not possible for me

The vouchers are bogus. Never cared for those.

I have made several purchases from Amain and I appreciate the prompt and low cost shipping. Prices are competitive.

I am however disappointed that as a Canadian customer, my purchase points expire when they do not for US customers and that the monthly discount codes can be a bit confusing at times.
