    ACR Electronics just released their summer promotion. They said they are moving away from the mail in cash rebate form of promotions. :(

    For a new PLB the promotion you get is 1 year free subscription to 406Link.com. I'm not impressed!...

    For an EPIRB, a free OLAS tag and 1 year free subscription to 406Link.com. Still not impressed!...

    Too bad SB doesn't have a dislike button :wink:. I have to agree, not impressive. I still would like to upgrade to a full PLB from my nautilus radios... but I'm waiting for a sale.

    Why would we need 406Link.com?

    Here's a mistaken listing for the ACR 2921 for $53. I wonder if they would actually ship it or notice their mistake and cancel. ACR ResQLink 400 Personal Locator Beacon without Display 2921 ResQLink 400 Personal Locator Beacon without Display

    If I didn't already have one, I'd try it.

    Doubt very much that is real. They would probably be losing close to $200 selling at that price, LOL

    I tried to order the car 2922 for $12 more, but I get stuck on the payment page. This box keeps flashing and will not respond.

    It looks like the site is some sort of buyers club that would order the goods after the sale, so I doubt that it'd go thru. The site seems to be bad reviews as well.

    coatien.club was only registered as a domain on 3 April 2020.

    I would not trust them with my credit card details.
