A&S out-of-stock freebee?

Rant
I get an email from A&S with a hat promo if you purchase anything. Cool. Nice hat. I order a couple things I've been meaning to get. I receive a follow-up email that they don't have any hats so the entire order waits. HUH? How can they offer something they don't have and then hold up a purchase? I have yet to have an order from them go through cleanly. Probably just my bad luck or it took me a while to finally get it. There's no such thing as a free (hat) lunch.

Re: A&S out-of-stock freebee?

I have had the same problem with A&S. Not a single purchase has gone through without them having to order something to complete the order. Not only do I have to wait for the order, the shipping is 3 times what the manufacture of the item will charge (A&S wants $32 manufacture wants $11.95). My solution was to unsubscribe to their emails so I do not see their specials and order from directly from the manufacture.

Re: A&S out-of-stock freebee?

My business now goes to http://www.bmwmotorcyclesofcountryside.com/.
First of all, they're new and local to me. This was a real nice option to happen for me, since my dealer closed shortly after buying the LT. They also throw in a 12% discount from list price on parts.
Anyone know of a better parts deal? I like to support the few dealerships there are.
