Any rules for the WEB25 code?

25% off 5 items or more.

I was an item short of 5 items, so I bought a brass tubing insert for 40 cents :p

I always take a look when I see these sales.

As usual, EVERY ITEM I looked up at MSC was also at Enco, at least 30% less expensive before any Enco sales. So, with the discount, it's STILL more expensive to buy the EXACT SAME item from MSC. Am I picking out items that are unusual in some way?

Example, this is a 10x10x10 angle plate:
MSC, 00140103, $131
Enco, 418-4340, $101

Kurt D675
MSC, 09215070, $499
Enco, 425-7760, $409

I have noticed the exact same thing. You might as well wait for one of Enco's amazing sales... seems like every other month this year, they have run a 15% off coupon... which stacks on top of their existing sale prices.

Also, alot of times it seems that the MSC "25% off coupon" is selective and doesn't apply evenly ... for example, their Phase II 8" RT wouldn't give a full 25% off in the online shopping cart.

Heh, quoting myself:


Kurt D675
MSC, 09215070, $499
Enco, 425-7760, $409

Apparently this engineer can't do math - that would only be 22% more expensive at MSC, and the 25% would drop it to slightly less than Enco.

I do thank both Dan S. and Lazlo, as I did find some items I needed at MSC that Enco didn't have.
Regards,
Aaron

Aaron, I think your math is still off by a bit. :)

The Kurt D675 is on sale for $409 at Enco. MSC lists it for the retail price of $499. I just applied the MACH25 coupon to the Kurt vise at MSC, and it's $374.48
So MSC's price, with the 25% off coupon, is $34.52 less than Enco's. Unfortunately, the free shipping code expired 30 minutes ago (11:30 EST).

I bought a bunch of Tygon fuel-line for my surface grinder. Same retail price as McMaster, but with the 25% off and free shipping, it's a bargain.
