No longer Maching out...
With this post 100%. Being in retail, everyone in retail loves this type of customer.So let me get this straight: you wanted to buy a $145 set of gears, and wanted the 6% forum discount, which would have saved you a total of $8.70 (or $15.60 if you wanted the whole kit for some reason). Literally the only thing you have to do to earn the code is post a few times on this forum, but you were too lazy/uninvolved in the community to do that. So you demanded the rep give you the discount anyway, and when he declined you asked for $10 off just because? Then when he declined again, you go public to try to bully AM into giving you a discount you didn't earn.
Hmm, call me a cynic but I don't feel sorry for you. The code is a GIFT for being an ACTIVE member of this forum. Btw, if $15 is enough to piss you off enough to start a thread bitching about it, you need another hobby.
