So what is the most popular deal for Black Friday 2013?

Recommended Posts

1.  I suggest the FlightBeam's 35% off sale may be near the top.  I picked up KIAD

2.  The Drzewiecki New York City X is at a super low price - Many places for 50% off retail

3.  The Orbx sale of Legacy stuff is thru the end of the year so plenty of time to shop there. But good prices.

4.  Some good deals may be found at PC Aviator with an additional 10% or 15% added at checkout.

5.  I'm disappointed there are no sales on FlyTampa.  Bummer.

 

Is the new Avsim Store having any Black Friday specials today?  I wonder. . .

 

Any others out there?

There's a few things I'm stewing over:

 

- Aerosoft's F-16 & Bronco X are both very cheap at PC Aviator, will most likely pick them up.

- The Just Flight Lightning F.6 is on at a very good price at Flightsim Pilot Shop, again, I'll likely pick that up.

- FSDT's CYVR

- Flightbeam's KPHX

- Oryxsim's Canadian Airports package at PC Aviator for $15.00... will be getting that as well.

 

- I might pick up all of the Cloud9 landclass to use in P3D as a stopgap until the FTX OpenLC products roll out, it's 70% off.

 

There's actually a ton of stuff on sale that hits in that $15.00 range - lots of other things I'm interested in, it's just a matter of having to pick and choose.  I can't afford it all, especially with the Orbx stuff going on sale!

Yep, there are lots of reduced prices out there.  Some too lite, some too heavy, and some just right.  SimMarket has double-digit pages of promotions also.

I pampered myself with quality sceneries, KSFO and KIAD. Latter was bought for patriotic reasons, the architect Eero Saarinen was born in Finland. Also the Bronco was accepted to my hangar.

As far as what i have so far, i see good deals on the flightbeam and ORBX stuff. What's up with FlyTampa with no black friday deal?

My best buy was the JF Bae-146 200/300 for $8.00 a few days ago and today I added the FMC and Livery Exp Pack for $4.99.  Quite a deal. 3 Models, oodles of liveries, weather radar, and FMC all for less than $13.00.  I flying between Brussels and Manchester now using the tutorial.

Well, after a fashion Ray. Starting at midnight tonight and running for 7 days, we will be putting some very popular producer's items on sale for 50% off. Look for a tower ad to appear at the right sometime around midnight...  Producer remains secret and products will be shown at midnight. I hope I can stay awake long enough to bring them online - all that turkey and what have you.... :lol:

That is great news, Tom.  I hope my credit card is thick enough to last through the weekend.  I love a good sale.  I guess this will be the 'Day after Black Friday Sale'  Why not, nobody else seems to be doing it.

Loads of stuff on sale at SimMarket, including all the Flight Replicas Pipers at 50% off. I'm finally going to get these!

I wanted to get a B2 Bomber for FSX, Area 51 price is too much for a basic model and so..so VC panel. But hey, it went down to 50% off, from 30 bucks to 14 bucks. Not a bad deal and i finally have a nice B2 Stealth on my FSX.

I messed up. That sale is scheduled to start TOMORROW night at midnight, not tonight. I am trying to move that forward to today however.

Thinking of getting FeelThere ERJv2 and maybe, quite possibly their E-Jets.

 

The E-Jets really don't wow me in the slightest... so I'm doubting those.

I'm thinking FSDT YVR is calling my name.

 

Is the discount PC Aviator is adding on checkout on top of sale prices already?

Well Tom, if it is going to last for a week and they are downloads I might just wait 'til the sun comes up to check them out - either morning will do for me.  Not much chance of running out of stock, I guess. -_-

Yes, the additional 10% at PC Aviator is in addition to the sale price, but they have that Hawaiian special that lowers the total. 

 

FSDT has a semi-complicated sale for those that buy 2 or more at the same time at their site.  You just have to keep your Ducks lined up and follow the instructions to the letter - a hard task for a flight simmer, I know.

We just announced the sale. 50% off ALL DCS products in the AVSIM Market Place. Excellent deals if you were waiting to purchase any of these great packages.

Musta been using one of those surplus Russian submarine clocks, eeh?  Midnight, tomorrow midnight, maybe sooner, right now.  Nice countdown.  I like it. :lol:

 

Bottom line is you did good.  Now, how about calling up FlyTampa with a deal for midnight, any midnight?

Ray, all I can say, you must have some pull at high places to have Tom speed up the Avsim sale (lol).  This has been one of the best BF in some time to have so many folks offer sales.   I keep having to change my list on what I plan to buy because there are new sales popping up so often having my list to get  longer and longer..  I first had KPDX, CYVR, GSX, Airbus 320X a few Megascenery,, and now I see Orbx is having a sale, which makes it pretty good with my senior discount,  When I arrive back home off of Thanksgiving vacation tomorrow I plan to put the plastic down on a bunch of FSX stuff. 

 Yep, I am still waiting on FlyTampa, although I did pick up KBUF two weeks ago at Simmarket on sale.

 

Oh, before I forget, Tom, thanks for getting this forum back to the old fashion way.  Just in time for FB , and then Christmas.

I did the Avsim review on the v2 E-Jets and I thought it was outstanding, especially on those 50% off sales.

Only problem PCA provided the old 1.11 installer and not latest 1.2 and since this is the weekend they're too busy and I can't enjoy my addon.

 

Also found REX Latitude for 7$ !! on fs-pilot store! :)
