    Default MSC, 30% discount and free UPS....

    Anybody else get this?

    mscdirect.com/join-onestop

    Supposedly if you join everything is 30% off and orders over $49 are shipped UPS ground free.

    The mailed offer said for loyal customers, but I haven't ordered from them in many years.

    I got the same letter. Wonder if they are feeling the heat from all of us previous enco customers not using them since msc is so high priced and not cost conducive for the small shop/ home shop people.

    The key is "up to" & they are still double what Enco was but if you want to believe DR that's OK, we'll still respect you in the morning
    Many got the BS as we're all special & I bet we all get participation trophies too.MSC what a joke!

    Somebody must be buying their stuff. There is counter service at the Harrisburg, PA warehouse. That place is big enough to be it's own country.

    Yeah, to the tune of about $700,000,000 per quarter! I don't think they are sweating the backlash on this forum

    I "get" the frustration, but it was probably a good business move for them.

    OOPS, I missed the "up to" part. So much for speed reading.

    I would like someone, anyone to post and say "YES" I actually did get 30% off of something that they purchased. I have always seen things like the discount doesn't apply to that item or that vendor. I am still trying to find an item that I need or want that is entitled to some sort of a discount. I think its sort of misleading.

    Looks to me like they were feeling it to some small extent.

    Never had any luck with MSC but last month - for the first time ever - I did manage to get 27% on a Travers 30% code. I'm sure it will never happen again. Recently scored an 82% discount from Amazon though... hahahahahahaha
