Now offers instant savings of 20% off every purchase, eliminating the automatic rebate checks.

"Our original model was to send customers a rebate check for 20% of the purchase price in 14 days of purchase. We listened to the marketplace and made a change that now gives our customers an instant 20% rebate when they purchase from us. That's in addition to many different manufacturers’ rebates our customers can also take advantage of," says Mike Maas, President and CEO of “Our company prides itself on being quick to react to the marketplace. We utilize focus groups that give us feedback on a continual basis, so this, coupled with actual customer feedback is why we decided to give the savings immediately to the customer," continues Maas, who has been known to personally speak or write to customers to obtain constructive feedback and deliver personalized service. In fact, one satisfied customer recently made a comment on a popular consumer rating site, saying “It is a shame all businesses do not stand behind the products they sell in a similar manner. The company went over and beyond any expectations. I would recommend very highly.”’s focus and attention to listening to their customers has proven to be effective. Since changing their marketing strategy and value proposition, sales have increased dramatically and customer feedback has been tremendously positive. “Many consumers are wary of rebate programs as many rebates take up to 3 months or longer to receive, so they thought there was a catch. But once we changed the rebates to be instant savings, customers were excited to get their savings at the time of purchase because our prices are already below retail. Plus it is a more simple and effective way for us to pass along these savings,“ says Rick Clear, Senior Vice President of Operations. So taking the advice from customers is not only proving to be beneficial to the customer, it is also more cost effective for the company. “Sending rebate checks to our customers was a concept that many of our customers liked, but giving them the savings instantly gives them immediate satisfaction, while reducing our costs for administering the program and sending the rebate checks. It’s a great move to benefit our customers and a smart business move. It’s a win-win for all,” says Todd Truax, Senior Vice President of Finance. features a wide selection of best selling, name brand electronics such as big screen TV’s, cameras, home theater systems, video games, audio/video equipment, electronic accessories and the like to suit anyone.
