Sorry we don't. Its not that we don't appreciate your guys' business, WE DO! There are several reasons we don't do forum discounts. The first is our pricing policy that's in our dealer agreements, which forbids it so that our dealers can all compete fairly against each other and against us. The second reason is that almost all of our clientele is a member of at least one of the forums we're active on. To offer a discount based on being a member would mean that everybody
gets a discount, in effect making the discounted price the regular price, which would in turn have to be set accordingly in order to cover costs and pay the bills. Then you get into raising the regular price in order to give everyone the discount and still keep the lights on. We'd rather not play that game, so we just set our prices where they need to be so that we and our dealers can earn a living.
One group that we do make an exception for is Active Duty Military. We figure we'll bend our own rules a little for the guys who are off in some foreign crap-hole, away from their families and getting shot at on our behalf. Once you look at it in that perspective, it almost seems silly to offer the same discount based on being a member of an internet forum.
Sorry for the long-winded response, but we get this question a lot and instead of answering "no we don't" I sometimes give our more in-depth response so everyone knows where we're coming from. We love you guys and appreciate your business, and we hope you find that our products are worth the asking price without some phoney discount scheme.
BTW, for the bargain hunters out there, here are a couple of tips. First of all keep an eye on our Garage Sale page. When we clean out the closet its usually some pretty good deals, but they go quick. Second, check with some of our dealers to see what they can do. They are also held to our minimum pricing policy, but some of them have shipping specials that can save you some money on heavy parts.
