Discount Golf Bags to Save You Money

By: Mike Pedersen

There are basically two types of discount golf bags. You can purchase cheap bags at cheap prices, frequently described as 'discount' but in fact you get little more than you paid for. If you pay a cheap price for a brand name you do not recognize, you can generally be sure that you are purchasing a cheap, low quality, product rather than a real discount golf bag.

Keep Your Eyes Open Not All Discounts Are Real

The second type of inexpensive golf bags are true discounts: they are well known branded bags which are available at reduced prices for one reason or another. However, even if the brand name is well known, you must still purchase with your eyes open and enquire as to the reason why the price has been reduced.

The golf bags that are inexpensive may be substandard products which have failed quality control and have been made available for sale at discounted prices. They may even be substandard products which have been scrapped, but are being sold by employees at cheap prices unknown to their employers. This practice is more common that you may believe.

Another reason for golf bags being sold at low prices is that they may have been damaged in some way. Transit damage and fire damage are two common reasons, but they may also be ex demonstration models or even returns from dissatisfied customers.

Look Out For New Launches

If you want to get a real bargain through the purchase of golf bags that are discounted, you should keep an eye or an ear out for news of the launch of a new range. This is when the old range may become available in retail centers at very low prices. These golf bags usually come onto the market when stores have to sell off their old stock quickly, to make room for the new models or designs.

The shops are normally given a price by the manufacturer at which they can sell the old range, and while there will be a tendency to sell at as high a price as possible for maximum profit, they can often be beaten down to a lower price, as long as it is not below that which they have been authorized to sell at.

Golf Bags Have The Discounts Built Into The Price

Corporations frequently build discounts into their budgets and original product prices for the launch of new products. They realize that their distributors need to sell off the old stock before they can stock up the new models, and give permission for price reductions in order to achieve this.

So, if you are looking for discount golf bags, wait until new models are due on the market, normally at around the same time every year, and you will usually be ably to get a top class product at the same price that you would normally pay for an unbranded cheap golf bag.
