Where are you along your path to a hammock purhcase? I have a pesonal "stock" of HH's which I can explain in a PM. Meanwhile, to answer your question about sales: The Hennessy website rarely cuts the price on new hammocks due to agreements with brick and mortar stores. Instead, they can offer free shipping, free Snakesins, extra tarps, a second hammock, etc., as promotions. Sometimes there will be a special promotion at a location, such as the PCT Kickoff, a Scout Jamboree, or Trail Days in VA (each May). At this last one, Tom offers HUGE discounts. I've been a HH user for over 10 years and have helped at shows. Let me know if you have more questions.
