Price seems to good to be true
« on: August 02, 2022, 02:05:43 AM »
Has anyone bought from beyondtheinfinity.com?

They only want $468.38 for a HELIX 7 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G4. That seems suspect because of how low the price is. Have any of you bought from them?

Humminbird requires dealers to price current product line as MRP (minimum retail price)  ... or they won’t be a Humminbird dealer for long  ...

Current HELIX 7 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G4N is $719.99
https://humminbird.johnsonoutdoors.com/fish-finders/helix/helix-7-chirp-mega-si-gps-g4

There is a somewhat cheaper HELIX 7 CHIRP SI GPS G4N at $519.99

I would be wary of any place selling at less than Humminbird MRP  ...

I thought Humminbird only had MAP pricing on their new models but I guess that could include the MEGA unit since (I think) that is the newest model. Will probably buy from Cabela's or Hodges. I believe Hodges is authorized? And they want $661.44 for the Helix 7 MEGA SI.

I mis-spoke  ... it is MAP like you noted  ... minimum advertised price  ... but it should be the same price as Humminbird advertises  ...

I do know of one well known dealer that advertises the Humminbird MAP but can quote a cheaper price by calling the order in instead of buying from the website  ...

BTW, I checked out beyondtheinfinity.com with the BBB & they are a total scam despite their paid advertising. They never deliver.
