Whistler WS1065 $222 on Thursday 02-22-2018 (one day only)

#1 Post by trp » 21 Feb 2018 15:23

For those who might be interested, Whistler will be offering for sale BRAND-NEW WS1065 scanners on Thursday, 02-22-2018, starting at 12:00 noon Central Time. This scanner is a phase I desktop/mobile and is essentially the same exact scanner as the Radio Shack PRO-197, Radio Shack PRO-652 and the GRE PSR-600. The nice thing about this Whistler version is that it includes the USB computer programming cable in the box with the scanner. The previous Radio Shack models required you to purchase the computer programming cable separately for an additional $25-$30.

Here's the fine print copy-and-paste on what Whistler is offering:

THURSDAY 2/22 @ NOON Central time!

BRAND NEW WS1065 - $222
We only get to run this deal once a year so you better act fast!
(These are NEW units. These are NOT refurbished units.)
Limit 2 per person/household.
All orders will ship on or before Wednesday, February 28st.

The item will not show for sale until NOON Central time on Thursday, February 22nd. This is automatic.

Here's the link to the WS1065 scanner on the Whistler website:https://whistlergroup.com/collections/s ... nner-radio

FYI shipping charges will be added to the $222 purchase price above. I checked the shipping charges to my zip code in Massachusetts and the two cheapest methods were UPS Ground at $17.13 and USPS Priority Mail at $17.58. I believe those will vary based on your delivery zip code.

It's now Monday, 02-26-2018, and the above link for the "one-day" 02-22-2018 sale on the WS1065 is still active. You can still add the WS1065 to your shopping cart for $222 (plus shipping) and proceed through checkout: https://whistlergroup.com/collections/c ... ws1065-222

Perhaps they didn't sell as many as anticipated on 02-22 and decided to extend the sale to further clear out their remaining inventory?
