SteepandCheap Oakley's

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I saw the Oakley's on www.steepandcheap.com today and read the description. The picture shows black frames but the description says "Electric Blue frames". (I checked out the Oakley website and didn't really like the blue frames.) HOWEVER, under the color/size selection, it says "Jet Black/Ice" which does correspond to the picture shown. So I ordered a couple of pairs as the fiance needs sunglasses and the price is right especially for polarized lenses.
I'm just posting to save others the time of trying to figure out what color really is being sold. Throughout my entire order it said "Jet Black/Ice" so I'm assuming that is what I will be getting and that the description is incorrect.
BTW, there is a long narrow block under which the color is listed. Does this block get filled in as inventory is deleted?
This was my first day on this site and I can see how it can be expensive!

steepandcheap is a wonderful thing, i really get a kick out of what they put up there. i've bought a couple of smith sunglasses that i use mostly for biking (skiing occaisonally), giro fuse helmet, k2 apache skis/bindings for my daughter, and some more mundane clothing. i'm lucky as i'm on the left coast so sometimes see the stuff at 11pm when it comes up, but i always look at 430am when i get up for work...

When was the last time there was a decent item on SAC that didn't sell out before morning's end? Should I even bother checking in the morning anymore?

that's an increasing problem for them...i don't think the quantity of each item they offer is going up or not as fast as their subscriber base is....there was a debate this week on sac about limiting quantities you can buy, especially for 'hot' items like these oakleys or an arcteryx jacket they had earlier in the week. part of the debate was about resellers, which the consumers don't like but makes it easier for sac to sell out...personally i'd like to see sac use some judgement by varying the max quantity you can buy. when they have an arcteryx jacket for $140 (msrp of $375) and only have 70 for sale you shouldn't be able to buy more than one, at least imo. when its hundreds of nixon watches, buy up to 3...

I totally agree with lowering the quantity available for purchase on hot items. SAC should up the quantities on Nixon watches or provide combo offers so they don't clog up the works for better items. I've seen two arcteryx jackets within the last month that I couldn't close out on. May have to start setting a late night alarm clock!

Yes. I can't sleep anymore because now I have to stay up until 02:00 every night to get in on the big action like camping chairs and nalgene water bottles. It wasn't that way 6 months ago. : Any thread intended to funnel more goggle crackheads like me there should end up in Davey Jones' locker.
