Pricing and Payment
We present our lowest price everyday to everyone.
About Our Prices -- We want all our products to be a great value so we present our lowest price everyday to everyone and we are proud of our five-star quality customer service. We do not have coupons, promo codes, reward points or "preferred buyer" discounts. You also never have to "call for best price." In a few cases, where diving equipment manufacturers prevent us from showing you a price in the U.S. below their specified fixed minimum amount (known as a Minimum Advertised Price or MAP), you may see a lower "in-store" price in our shopping cart if you first Register and/or Sign In to your DGX customer account on our website. Once you Sign In to your free DGX customer account, our prices are the same good value whether you shop online, our physical location, or call us.
