• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"

    http://www.snowestonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=269222

    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.

Any Snowchecks still waiting and any word?

I received an email from polaris on 11/25 saying that my snow check shipped 11/19. My dealer called and said it arrived 12/1 without shocks. Seems to me the snowcheck program was a big mess this year.

Still waiting on my shocks. They were suppose to arrive this week but now early next week. I have sent an email to Polaris customer service, I'm not expecting anything but I could be surprised.

that's a joke. I believe a snowmobile requires shocks to function no? Doesn't seem like they held up their end of the bargain if unusable/unsaleable product is shipped. How can they pretend they did right by you snowcheckers? You folks are legit the most loyal part of the buyer base and it baffles me they aren't making it right particularly since they shipped out a LOT of non-snowcheck sleds. Should be the other way around.

ive had my khaos for 5 days now and just got a email this morning from polaris that it shipped. It showed up without shocks but my dealer said it was bulls#&t that he got his in stock khaos 155s before all the snowchecks so he pulled a set of shocks off his showroom sleds!!
i ordered a khaos 165 red/black QD2.

My dealer said I am getting a voucher for $500 . My sled is here but no shocks.
Problem is you can't use it on the snowcheck unit. But I can and will use it with the golden ticket for the 2022.

You have a good dealer if they are going to make sure you get your coupon. Some people don’t think it’s a big deal but $500 is a cover and belt that isn’t out of my pocket when I am already spending $30k in sleds this year.

I agree. Fortunately for them and me, I ordered new shocks which arrived before the sled. So I’ll get my sled built and delivered before most, all for the low price of $4k.

If you do get the voucher I wouldn't use it for parts or accessories those are on a 35-70% markup so you are losing half of your money .

So if I used a coupon for $500 of accessories instead of paying cash vs using it for $500 off my next sled instead of using cash I am losing less money? Lol

Whether I pay out of pocket for one or the other it’s the same amount out of pocket.

Well at least you guys got shipping notifications. I order a Black with blue rails Khaos 155 QD2 April 1st and I haven't got any notification us dealer said it has not shipped. Dealer did some research friday and found out they didn't have the shocks PLUS they run out of the new 2.8 155 tracks. They informed the dealer they should have all parts first of next week and ship by Friday. I really hope that is true my super charger and all the other parts are setting here patiently waiting to be installed. The sad part is the dealer has had 2 of the exact same sleds that I ordered setting on the floor for over a month. He overed one to me in place of mine but bothe are missing interactive garage. I will just keep praying it gets here along with more snow
 
Mine supposedly shipped out Nov 20
They told me my shocks went out on the 30th, so I don't qualify for $500 which is fine
I still don't have the sled
Today I get an email offering me $500 because it missed the Nov 30 deadline.

not sure where my sled is or even if it got shipped... guess i'll keep waiting ...

I just checked with my dealer in the Twin cities and my new ship date is now this Friday the11th. I think that’s the third ship date I’ve been given so far.

Shouldn’t be any debate on the $500. I snow checked fairly early in the process.

You should get $500 for each failed ship date they gave you.

I got an email at 6 am last Saturday that my 155 Pro 2.75 had shipped. Funny thing is the sled had already been delivered to the dealer on that Thursday and they too were never told it shipped. Ship happens. The seasons doesn't get good until January. Big deal if you miss a couple good rides. Run 2 sleds. Or just act like a whiney liberal and cry that life isn't fair.
 
I got mine 2 days ago ... didn't come with shocks but my dealer had my back and sorted me out in that department .... also got $500 from polaris even though my sled was shipped nov 20 (and supposedly shocks sent nov 30) .. mine just took a freaking long time to get to my dealer, multiple truck stops and swaps and what not ..

anyway .. my wait is over and engine break in starts saturday :)
