Early on in 2012 I was in the market for a 8x42ED roof prism, living in Canada it meant a trip to Toronto to see what was available, I ended up walking out of the store with a Vanguard Spirit, reasonably priced though not a cheap as if bought in the USA however with purchases in the US by the time you pay shipping and brokerage, taxes etc you can end up no better off.
Just before Christmas I noted on the Eagle Optics USA web site that Vanguard were offering a rebate but it was for the US only and the claim had to post marked before the end of 2012,as it was nearly Christmas and the postal service would be flooded with mail and its for the US only I decide not to bother.
A couple of days later I though "whats to lose for the price of a postage stamp?" in went the claim though I wasn,t expecting anything back.
Last night while checking the post I found a cheque for $50,well done Vanguard, most impressed, DA. :jump:
