Went all the way through the check out process to see if it would actually work, not only did they quote shipping at $50, and then sneakly add ANOTHER $75 to the shipping when i was to enter my CC info, the code did not deduct anything.. a word to the wise...

for the removal of a thread. Not sure if the original poster was trying to drum up business for the company or make it look bad. Or maybe was just misled. Either way, this thread should be taken off.

To be fair to Annemarie, she did say it was an upcoming sale. Looks like it will be a great opportunity to pick up some stuff.

Shame Shame not that I would buy from you I can get what you sell wholesale I am in the Costume & Party business. as well amoung other things. But thats neither here nor there. You ad on HauntWorld stated 100.00 or more save50% not 399.00 or less! Thats just wrong to mislead people like that. Oh wait! This is the Haunt Industry you can do that!

out of stock right now. Maybe they just want to clear out some inventory and then redo the website with just the best sellers?

I called them today everything is upfront! Just not 50% on anything over 399.00. You buy $100.00 you pay $50.00. Good deal if you buy the right stuff.

It probably has something to do with the fact the manufacturer raised the prices 20% this year and they would loose money big time at half off.

A notice onm the front page of the site says the sale is extended through Sunday. Better hurry though - every time I have revised my shopping list another item turns up out of stock.

My 2 cent...if you can mark your items down 50%...well, your mark up is just............ wrong.

My 2 cents, I agree with Frightners on the mark-up, if you know what you are doing, you will look to see where they got the product and ck FrightCatalogs price up against the distributor price. I will say this, anything other than the costumes at 50% has a HUGE mark up, one product can be bought from MorbidIndustries for $6.50 an item and FrightCatalog sells the same item for $34.95. Most costumes at 50% come to close to the same price as the costumes are sold for at Transworld; however, by getting them at FrightCatalog 50% off, you can get close to the same price but not have to buy the item in bulk. Do your homework before you buy, they did have a few GOOD deals but you had to research.

Wow,
This is very interesting.
Your statement makes me think about something.
What if you were not able to go to transworld. Would you know the wholesale price of that item?
This is why the halloween market didn't want haunters to attend a wholesale show, INFORMED BUYERS.

What's that smell?

is the best price (assuming quality and service are equal among sellers). Wholesale price has nothing to do with it, if I can't get it at wholesale. Everything I have ever bought in my life has had a big profit built into it by wholesalers. That's just the way it is. What I care about is what it's going to cost me, and where I can get the best deal. With that said, FrightCatalog does some to be overpriced on many items, while others are very reasonable with the discount. I comparison shopped before I placed my order.

It seems there are a few misconceptions about retail pricing. Most retail items including Halloween have a 100% markup. Most people who have never owned a business look at the markup and cringe. The fact is after we buy the item for wholesale, pay the very high freight charges, pay someone to list the item online, take photos, pay fees if sold on an auction site, pay credit card fees, pay someone to accept the orders and then pay someone to ship them, you have very little margin left even with 100% markup. Wholesale prices is for retailers who by the way have to order in large quantities. Just because you see an item for $5.00 marked up to $10.00 don't assume that is all profit. I may have to buy 20 of the damn things to get that price.
