Again fact or assumption? Do you have some inside info to share?

I wonder if one (or more) of Uniden's distributors complained to Uniden about someone undercutting the market and Uniden made a phone call to have this low price situation corrected. I used to run a retail store and some manufacturers can enforce minimum advertised price policies, depending upon the agreements they put in place with their distributors.

Either that or FactoryOutletStore got a bunch of orders in a short period of time and realized they were on the wrong side of the supply/demand curve.

Incidentally, has Uniden always had an MSRP of $549 on the 436HP, or did they just increase the price on their website in the past two weeks? I thought I remembered seeing it at $499 a few weeks back (and the 536HP was at $599).

Might just want to do some research before ordering from this outfit. 408 BBB complaints last 3 years. Other sites out there saying they are trouble.

I just assumed that it was the Uniden outlet store. But I did go back and sure enough it isn't Uniden. I'll retract my statement above.

The price for the BCD436HP was $439.95 (no tax, no shipping); and Amazon did not have a better price for that one.

GRE might have HAD the best digital encode in the past, but on P25 my 536 sounds better than my Pro197. The Pro197 does a great job on P25, but the 536 sounds even more natural.

I had thought the same thing when I ordered mine from another company. I got the 436 shipped overnight for $526. so this is a good price you paid.

Looks like the $439.99 is no longer!! Very short lived.

Did the "sale" end? How is $499.95 a "sale" price for the 436?

It was 439.90. So not much of a sale or savings but a dollar is a dollar now a days!

I looks like they have removed them from the "Sale" page.

Default No Longer On Website

FactoryOutletStore no longer has the 436HP or 536HP listed for sale on their website. And, of course, they already ran my credit card last week when I placed the order for the 436.

Could be that they took the items offline temporarily until they actually get in the shipment, but I'm starting to get that queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach..... (Can always dispute the credit card charge if necessary.)

dlkesler76, let us know if you happen to get any other updates. Thanks
