A wonderful week ahead as we get into the Thanksgiving holiday in the USA. I know my friends and family in Canada have already celebrated Thanksgiving in October, so consider this a late holiday greeting!
I am very grateful to all of our site visitors, our clients, and our YouTube viewers. You have made this such a fun industry for me to be a part of. I absolutely love being in the massage chair industry.
Lots of stuff to talk about today, most of which I will discuss later today in my biweekly Massage Chair Industry Update video, which you will able to see on our YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/massagechairrelief/
1. New IT-8100 chair should be available for sale this week. I will be getting images and details later this week to share with you. This much I know: it will be a full featured chair that looks much like the IT-8200/It-8500 models. It will be price in the mid to lower $2K range. I hope to have it up on my site very soon after it has been released to the public.
2. Osaki OS-5000 has been discontinued and taken off my website.
3. The dark brown and ivory Osaki OS-7075R are back-ordered until December 5th or 6th. This upgrade model to the OS-7000 has become very popular, very quickly thanks to the foot roller feature. There are only 6 dark browns in this shipment coming. So, if you want dark brown, call and order ASAP or else you’ll be waiting for the next shipment and I have no idea when that one will be coming.
4. We now can offer the “Bill Me Later” feature on PayPal to give you 6 months no payment/no interest for your massage chair purchase. Just check off the PayPal option for payment on our checkout form and you will be redirected to your PayPal login page. Once you login you will be given the option to use “Bill Me Later.” Just answer the questions and, once approved, pay for your order through PayPal. Much easier process than with GE Capital, our other financing option.
5. Osaki OS-300 bank ordered in black and brown, with no estimated date for a new shipment of these colors. Are they discontinuing this model? I don’t know, but no shipments of this model on the horizon smells of a discontinue.
6. Osaki OS-1000 in black and brown is back ordered until November 24th, still plenty of time for Christmas shipping.
7. Speaking of Christmas shipping, I would get your order in by December 17th if you want to get your new massage chair by Christmas Eve. Of course, the state you live and the chair model you order will determine a more specific shipping time, but to be safe I would suggest getting your orders in by the 17th (of course, that is no guarantee either, but a pretty good estimate).
8. Lots of stock available on most models right now. After Black Friday, that may change. I’ll keep you posted each week before Christmas.
9. The Osaki OS-7000 is being discontinued now that the OS-7075R is available. And, folks, let me tell you, people love the foot rollers in massage chairs. I suspect that is why the IT-8200, IT-8500, and Osaki OS-7075R are suddenly so popular. A very nice feature.
Well, that should just about do it for today. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. I’ve always felt that the most grateful people are the happiest people. At least that is what I have witnessed in my life.
