How to Get The Best Deal on Metal Detectors - B.Y.O.B - Build Your Own Metal Detector Gear Package
When you get ready to arm yourself with all the gear you need to efficiently and effectively metal detect, most likely you will begin your search online. Quickly you will realize that you may not be able to find the exact metal detecting bundle you are looking for.
For instance, a lot of people who metal detect with a Minelab Metal Detector prefer to use a Garrett Pro Pointer AT as pinpointer option. You won't be able to find those two products bundled because neither Garrett nor Minelab allow other technology products to be bundled with their respective brands. In fact, if you are using Google Shopping or Amazon, you most likely won't really see any custom bundles as most manufacturers do not allow you to sell custom bundles on 3rd party platforms.
So, how do you get the best deal on a metal detector bundle with exactly what you need? You gotta get old fashioned with it and pick up the ole telephone. The best way to get the best deal on a metal detector is to speak to...wait for it...a real human being. Not only can you customize your bundle to get exactly what you want, you can also get the best deal.
The good news is, with High Plains Prospectors, you will actually be able to connect with a real liver person (unlike a lot of our competitors that seem to have forgotten how important good, live customer service is).
When you are shopping online, you will notice that all of the metal detector dealers have the same prices for certain items. The differences only varies in what each dealer is offering as "free" items within their bundles. There is a reason for this. Did you know that a lot of the products out there (especially electronics) have different prices that are listed?
MSRP - This stands for Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price. This is the price the manufacturer sets and is often the price you will see when you go to a big-box retail store like Scheels, Bass Pro, or Dick's Sporting Goods.
MAP - This is the Minimum Advertised Price. This is the reason why you will see very similar price points from each detector dealer. We have to sell their technology at a set price. If a package is offered below this price point the dealer will be in violation of the manufacturer's policy and could lose their license.
Their are laws preventing manufacturers from setting the price a dealer can sell a metal detector at. Doing so could be considered price-fixing. However, when you enter into an agreement with a manufacturer, you contractually agree not to violate their MAP price. You can sell it at whatever price you want to, you just cannot advertise it at a lower price than MAP. Make sense?
