Trion price drop 20%
« on: May 31, 2011, 01:51 PM »
This is a real bummer!!! I just bough a Trion on the 2nd of May. A 20% reduction is a lot of money is that any protection under the 30 return policy?

Bummer.  I could not wait any longer for the Carvex and purchased a Trion on May 6th.  In fact I had asked, on this forum, about a price decrease and was told no.  For those that had ordered a Trion in the past month, they should send us the Blade Promo pack as good will, just saying!!  [laughing]

The price drop doesn't mean the Carvex is any closer than
Before the price drop.
Before anyone returns the Trion under the 30 day return policy,
why not ask your dealer to refund the difference?

Bob is correct.

I can say with certainty that the Carvex launch is not imminent.

  No worries Brice. Dealers would be on the spot only if they chose to be. ;) It's our choice.

Look at how long the drill have been selling at a reduction. The new drills are still several month away.

I have been VERY happy with the Trion. It is the first barrel grip jigsaw i have owned. I find I'm intuitively using it upside down as it is easy to hold and see the blade. Trying to see the blade through the plastic dust extraction sleeve is almost impossible.

The Carvex is a huge improvement on the Trion but if you are happy with it then that's good.
