Escort 8500 X50

I don't know if anyone is interested or not. Another board (FJR) has a group buy going on right now. $269.95 no tax - no shipping and includes the direct wire cord. This is for the red display. I think the blue display was $30 or $40 more. I purchased one today and I bought the extended warranty for $30.00 - 2 additional years. Total delivered to my door $299.95 I don't know if this a good deal or not but I like the idea that I did not have to go shopping. If interested call Escort at 800 433 3487 ext 8532 and speak to Jack. Mention the group buy for the FJR group and he will take your order and ship right away. You do not have to wait for a large amount of orders for him to send it out. I did not mention that I ride BMW and he did not ask, he was happy to take the order. This group buy is good until the end of the month.

I called to see if the deal was still going in May

I told Jack that i had seen the announcement on one of the bulletin board. I asked him if the deal was still going. It is a very sweet deal:

8500 x50
Hard Wire Cable
2 Years Extended Warranity
Free Shipping
No Tax.

Total 299.00

He did not ask me what type of bike i rode and didn't really care. So, If you are in the market this is a sweat deal.

Should get it this week.

Glad to hear they are still offering at the group rate. I really don't know how good of a deal it is, but it was good enough for me. I really hate going to Best Buy or similar store listening to sales people who really don't know what they are selling. I rather do home work on our site from people who have the stuff. I really like the unit. I have never had a radar detector so can't compare. This thing works very good and I can't say if it has saved me from a ticket as of yet but it sure has gone off a few times in places where I was just about to drop the hammer.

If you do the math it is as follows:

299 for the detector
10-Hard Wire Cable
30-Extended Warranity
10-15-Shipping.

Total 350

It is a good deal and i look forward to using it on my new GT. You saved close to 20% on the package.

Good Luck and thanks for the post. Jack was a really nice guy and could care less about waht type of bike you ride.

P.S. Not sure when the deal ends but it seemed like the end of the month-May

Cool I just ordered mine

Thanks for the heads up. I just placed my order with Jack. It's going on the truck today. I just may get lucky and get it before the Holiday weekend! That could be a very good thing.
