Every could of weeks there is another Sport Chek friends and family event, this has to be killing their margins. Does anybody buy at regular price there anymore?
You would be surprised. Saw a dad/child in line in front of me at sportchek the other day. They had a hockey stick/puck they were picking up. The staff scanned the hockey stick and came up as regular price. The dad politely mentioned he saw a sign that showed 15% off all hockey sticks ending in .97 or something. The cashier said she would call someone to check but the dad said Its fine, don't worry about it and paid the reg price it scanned in as.

As a RFDer, I was surprised but not everyone out there waits for sales or is aware of these types of promotions

There are always people who are willing to pay regular price. You just do not know their circumstances. It could be because they are in a rush to buy something for the next game starting in 30 minutes, or it could be because they make tons of money so the time spent on tracking these sales/promotions is hardly worth their while. It is no different from having cleaners come over to clean your place every week if you are busy and can afford it.

As for code begging, I can completely see how reasonable someone who has 4000 posts and has been around since 2006 (e.g., Zaidyboy) can ask for a code. This is someone who is very likely to have contributed meaningfully to RFD. As for others who have been around for 5+ years and have fewer than 100 posts? If there such a thing for those who do not deserve a code, it would be such other people.

There's of course an additional reason of parenting by example. And that could have any number of reasons. Maybe this is a gift for his child or someone else and arguing over a few, dollars in the grand scheme of things spoils the nature of a gift. Maybe by this point he already committed to buying it and has decided he'd be happy with it, so fighting over the price is the wrong "hill to die on", so to speak. Or maybe he's just enough well off that the sale intrigued him, but at the end of the day wouldn't have stopped him either way.

Of course, you're right too that perhaps he just didn't know he could've gotten an even better price. We don't know. But my point in the end is that RFD/deal hunting is almost a little hobby on the way of getting stuff I need (at least for me). So for me and perhaps others it's a little more than juts getting good prices, it's also, good fun.
