*** Canadian Excalibur Customers Beware ****

Excalibur Summer Sale Promotion Email

Is this sale available to Canadian Customers buying from Canadian Retailers ??????
"Apparently Not" :thumbdown:

I got an email today about an exciting New "Excalibur Summer Sale Promotion". ( Accessories Savings) today.
Only after reading the very small fine print thinking why would Excalibur send this promotion to a Loyal Canadian Customers if they are not eligible.

After becoming drawn in and clicking on eligible offical Excalibur "Local Dealer's " and almost making a purchase to only be kicked in the teeth after thinking "a deal too good to be true usually has a catch" guess what ? decided to review of the email again too be sure only to find buried in the very small fine print in the email promotion the following. disclaimer.

"Offer Only Available in United States "

Ya, it's a pretty crappy thing to do to us. Maybe I should check the fine print on the draw I just entered.

It’s worst when you live in Quebec. Many times companies have a contest stating open to canadian residence but when you read “the fine” print it usually says ot open to Quebec residence! Why cause here you have to apply and Abide to the rules government department of gambling. Bummer!

Wow, that’s really crappy, considering Excalibur is a Canadian company—or at least was, until it was bought by Bowtech. I guess there’s your answer!

Doesn't really bother me much. We can't get 80% of the stuff available in America. There will be times Canadians get better deals or sales that Americans, no big deal really.

For what it's worth, I didn't get the email.

I remember when l was a kid and worked at the Kawasaki dealer. Your Canadian carburetor needles and some jet work would really "wake" an American bike up for a cheap investment.

We understand why Canadian customers are upset about the recent summer specials promotion however it was not intended to offend or alienate anybody.

This consumer promo is only applicable in the US market because we do not currently have a Canadian E-com site where consumers can redeem their promo code. We do intend to have future promos that will be applicable in Canada – sorry for any confusion.
