I ordered the Torrey Smith Super Bowl jersey last Tuesday from NFLShop.com, and the price dropped $40 on Thursday. I sent them an email asking if they'd be kind enough to credit me the 40 bucks, citing the fact that I didn't even have the jersey in hand yet (it arrived Friday, and looks great, BTW!) and the price had just dropped 33%. To my shock, they credited the $40 to my CC account (didn't even make me use "store credit"). They certainly didn't have to do that, but I thought it was very cool of them to do so.
I've seen prices dropping left and right on a lot of superbowl gear so I plan to wait until the summer and snatch up everything I would like including the DVD that comes out in a few weeks.
Only thing I've bought thus far were a couple of superbowl T-shirts for my wife and I in New Orleans a few hours after the game. Paid $35 each at airport, the same shirt was selling for $42 at the NFL store down the street from the superdome. Wish I had waited. That same shirt is now selling for $20 at nearby mall LOL.
I'm still trying to avoid subscribing to SI for the football, DVD and Commemorative Book. Question:
I've seen NFL DVD highlights elsewhere, are they the same as the one you get with the SI offer????? I found a football I actually like better than the one SI gives, so that leaves the Commemorative Book, which may not be sold separately. My Mom picked up a couple of different Commemorative books at a CVS in Frederick, I wondered if they're wnything like the one in the SI offer, which is hard cover.
I'm out of town, so any help is appreciated.
The SB46 bluray is $12 on amazon. The SB46 program is still on sale at nflshop for like $6 I think. So you can expect those prices in a year for certain comparable items. Right now the SB47 bluray is $18.99 on amazon, and the program looks to be $15-20 at various sites.
Not really much savings.
I think the clothes will be slashed much more than memorabilia will be. The AFC Champions stuff was reduced soon as the SB stuff hit.
J C Penney has the gray SB sideline hats on sale for $20.
Oriole way-not sure about online. I was at the JC Penneys in Owings Mills. They had lots of them in different sizes for $20 a piece.
