    UUGGH! I'm sooo bummed!

    I just went on the husqvarna site and see that if you buy a Sapphire 785Q you get a free quilter's set with it. I bought my machine in January and asked the lady if I should wait to buy it in hopes that there might be a special soon and she told me that they would only do a special for the lower model and not have any offers for the model that I wanted. If I had know that if a waited a measly 2 months I would have been able to get the quilter's table with my machine I would have waited! I'm so bummed now. Too bad I can't take it back and rebuy it lol. Has this ever happened to anyone here before. It just really stinks that she told me it would never happen and then it does so soon after I get it.

    she may not have known about the upcoming special. don't be too hard on her. it is, indeed, a bummer to miss out on a special.

    Check with her to see if she can cut you a deal since you missed the special. Can't hurt to ask.

    I would also contact Viking, see what they say. Remind them that word of mouth from quilters will sell them more machines.

    I understand that most of the major companies don't let the shops know of any specials that are coming their way. It could be that they have never done a special on that model before. I would definitely contact the shop owner and see if there is anything they can do for you. They may not be able to give you one but maybe they can make a reallllllly good deal on the table for you.

    Call the big cheese and ask if you might get a table or at least a discount

    I was really lucky. When I talked to a LQS about purchasing an mid-arm the dealer told me that the new models was coming out in a couple of months at the same price. Needless to say - I waited. And when I decided to purchase it was definitely from him.

    I'd go back and ask them as well. If you get no satisfaction from the shop, check with Viking. I do know that when I bought my Viking I got a ton of extras and when my friend bought hers about 2 years later there were no offerings. Granted, most of my stuff was little - extra bobbins; needles, etc. - but I had coupons for all that kind of stuff for each month for a year. Not sure how much of an incentive Viking was giving the shop but it was definitely a Viking promo and not a store promo. Doesn't hurt to ask.

    I hate when you buy your machine and 2 months later they come out with a newer improved model. I wish I would have known that when I bought mine

    Hate to be nosey, but I really want an 875, but don't want to go into the dealer until I am ready to buy. Would you mind sharing what you paid for yours?

    Sometimes dealers will let you upgrade to the newer model and use your present one as down payment. I know my Bernina dealer does that. Of course, once you take possession of your first one, they will probably depreciate it a lot.

    ​I hate it when that happens! Even on a small purchase it bugs me. I agree with everyone else, go back and see if they can do something for you.

    This happened to me when I bought my Singer XL6000 embroidery machine. For Christmas one year they offered a CD with 4000 designs on it when you purchased the machine. Of course, I bought mine later & when I saw this CD I asked my retailer about it & he arranged to get one for me so I was very happy. Maybe your retailer will do the same (if she wants further sales from you) she just might.

    Remember the squeaky wheel..... contact the company... if they say NO, tell them that answer doesn't work for you. It worked for me last year with an airlines that didn't want to pay to repair/replace damage they caused. I know it is a different scenerio but........

    I'd go in and explain, showing my receipt, maybe they would honor the deal to you.

    I think what I'm going to do is email viking and see what they can do. I understand that these things just happen sometimes, but I was just annoyed when I found out. I would have rather her told me she didn't know than to tell me she did and that they would never do any offers for this model. Oh well, maybe the email will help, maybe not. I'm just not in the mood to be confrontational about it just a little bummed. DH is the same way... says oh well it might take more time trying to prove my point than its worth sometimes.

    I work for Husqvarna Viking and we don't know about future promotions like the current Sapphire 875 promo in advance.

    I know how you feel. I missed saving $150 by ONE DAY!! I bought a Bernina yesterday and found out after that there are coupons available to save $150 on machines in the same price range :-(( Bummer! I think the store owner should have told me. As I was leaving she gave me the flier and said that if I wanted to order the BSR there would be a $50 coupon for that.

    It's like seeing the coat selling for $220 in December reduced by 75% in February. A total bummer if you bought in December! (But I didn't--I was raised by a DM who shopped fornext Christmas on the day after Christmas toy sale.)

    Cut the saleswoman a bit of slack--we don't know if she knew....or what she knew....and if you were happy with your new machine---be happy with it still!

    I don't think it would be confrontational to ask the dealer if she would be willing to match the offer now. If she says no, you're not any worse off. And you might gain something.
