Buyer Beware (Motorcyclesuperstore)

I have caught them several times raising their prices, so they can make you think you are saving money. Here is the most recent example of this fraudulent practice.

Wen I asked them about this on Facebook, they replied with "we have to raise the price to be able to offer the discount" I asked why not just offer your best price, the blocked any further postings from me. This is Blatant fraud, they are saying I am saving 10%, but they raise the pricing temporarily to give the discount. When the coupon ends the pricing will go back down to exactly the same price as with the discount. I have seen this many times over the past few years, and have reported them to the Attorney Generals office for Fraud.

Michelin Pilot Powers

Current Pricing (inflated)

180/55-17 $127.99
120/70-17 $98.99

Then with their BS 10% off Coupon makes the Prices

180/55-17 $115.19
120/70-17 $89.09


For a much better deal without the BS coupons or Smoke and mirrors go to JakeWilson.com or Rockymountainatv.com for this pricing.


180/55-17 $110.99
120/70-17 $86.99


All of the above offer 3 day free shipping!!!

Although that is fuct up, I don't think its fraud. Retailers can charge the MSRP or below if they wish and change their prices at will. They could probably even charge above MRSP (correct me if I'm wrong.) While its a shameless consumer deception tact, its probably not issue for the attorney general. Its called marketing.
