Recommended Posts

Big sale on Carenado products at SimMarket. Some marked down to 80% off, most at least 40%. As far as I can see, it includes all of their products. Sale ends 12/17

Sorry to be a downer, but sadly not  the latest products, same sale as everywhere else :(

Also, due to the magic of exchanges rates their prices are a lot higher for UK buyers than the US suppliers :( :(

Cheers

I agree, from euro to USD is also very high.  Haven't purchased much from them since the exchange rates are higher than average.

Worth having a scout about on several sites, as many of them are knocking Carenado prices down at the moment and there is some variance in pricing, but it is not as widely varied as a first glance might make it seem and there's not a lot in it it, thus it's invariably still worth going to your preferred vendor.

For example, the Carenado Cessna C337H Skymaster HD Series, which works in FSX and P3D V3 and V4 is one that is certainly worth having out of Carenado's catalogue and is one of those currently discounted. Comparing Sterling prices for it, normally it is £21.45 on Just Flight's store, but is currently down to £10.72 in their sale (so about half price), whereas it is normally 38 Euros on Simmarket, but currently down to 11.48 Euros, which in Sterling means that's £33.50 down to £10.50 (ish) for Simmarket, so it's a bigger percentage discount at Simmarket, but somewhat misleading since it was more expensive in the first place. Then you also have to figure on Just Flight giving you 53 Reward Points for buying it from them, which is worth an additional 53 pence, since each JF Reward point equates to 1p, taking the price down to £10.19 at Just Flight in real terms providing one intends to purchase something else from JF at some point.

The upshot is, it was when at full price cheaper at JF and is cheaper at Just Flight than it is at Simmarket in the sale too, even though it's confusingly 50 percent off at JF and about 70 percent off at Simmarket.

Either way though, if you are looking for one worth having for about a tenner which works in P3D V4 and FSX, the 337 is a good shot.

Minor price/exchange rate variations aside, the only key difference between retailers I could see was flightsim's pilot shop had the 690 Turbo Commander marked down (US$27.97), whereas it was full price everywhere else.

There's a $7 difference in the price of the C90Gtx depending on which retailer you choose. Compare PcAviator with the other sites.
