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.
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.
I also wondered how people like VOHK and Boondocker, would feel about loosing turbo kit sales. Gives them a year to ramp up / change their business models and adapt to factory turbo support vs. turbo kit production.
Nah, it just really sold out that quick. Faking SC wouldn’t improve your allocation. Probably the biggest bomb drop sled reveal ever in the heat of Covid craziness retail, with limited quantities. It’s legit
vohk did a video yesterday on the new models and said the turbo's were limited and would sell out within a day or so , btw he said they already have new products for the turbo models in development . i'm perfectly happy with my 19 side kick 800 so no rush for me to buy
I just received my 2021 snow check on December 24 two weeks on a boon docker recall about 45 days on sled then new one comes out maybe the limited production will help my resale value, but it’s sure to upset a lot of people
Dealer in Gallatin Valley sold out entire Boost allotment in the morning, line out the door when they opened. Every dealer is getting full MSRP. They may have underestimated demand, and will end up pushing some peeps to the doo turbo. Might be tough for some to be ready to drop +20 large and walk away empty handed for a year.
I've seen some here say that they only sell 10k sleds a year. If so, that's a big chunk of their market share. IF it's more like 30k, I'd bet they have an accessory kit to add the turbo once they figure out if it's going to kill their bottom line on warranty.
They also probably didn't expect that many people to spend the extra $4k. I'd take the NA model for my type of riding and skip the extra $ 99% of the time.
