Festool Outlet Store
« on: September 17, 2022, 06:54 AM »
I was searching for ideas for some sys-a storage ideas and pictures and came across this.

Doesn’t seems to conform to the normal sites, looks like it’s located in Las Vegas

A few tantalizing cues.

1.  New items with a retail price of $500.00, are selling for $95.00 with free shipping.
2.  No vendor reviews anywhere.
3.  They show a physical address, but when I google the address (without the store name) and look at the street view I get this:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/201+N+Nellis+Blvd,+Las+Vegas,+NV+89110/@36.1645913,-115.0628712,3a,75y,317.93h,103.82t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1skz1aeZ9v3YPTvio9IKbEaQ!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!4m5!3m4!1s0x80c8db63cdda03a5:0x6bd18499d871d013!8m2!3d36.165022!4d-115.0635138

If you slide the image to the side, you will see that the address is for a Walmart Store.

I would query Festool America and ask if they are an actual dealer.

Totally fake website. Don't ever use it.

All their sku's are for Australian packages,while they list their address in the States, and is fake also.
And Festool would never sell for discounts, and there is no way any vendor could make any money selling new tools at 20% list price.

I am sure Festool are happy  to be informed about these shenanigans.

You would never get 20% off, much less 20% "of" the retail price.
At least in the US, there is no discounting allowed.  A legitimate dealer would lose their ability to get any more inventory.

It definitely feels like it's not legit and can be reported to Google as a phishing website.

If you want a legitimate US based online store for "all things Systainer", the Systainer.Store is a good option, carrying the full line and also having a good close-out/scratch and dent selection, too. (content varies with that obviously)
