• 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.

I know its not skinz factory but I just ordered the skinz next level handlebar bags from Dan Adams next level shop and I had them within a week. I know the next level shop has lots of skinz products maybe give them a try.

I am not looking for any product. It's for a warranty issue. Not sure if they close shop for summer holidays, or any of the other bs going around these days. Sent a few emails as I know that's the easiest way to get ahold of them. Been a few weeks with no responses, so I thought someone on here might know if there even open.

Watch some Burandt videos and see if you can manage to impersonate his voice. If so, leave a message: "Hey, this is Chris, my friend ------ has been trying to get ahold of you; please get back to him ASAP." Couldn't hurt!

I've never bought any Skinz product because I hear so many stories about their poor customer service, yet guys on YouTube seem to have no trouble getting their latest/greatest. They make some good stuff, but I'll take a slightly less flashy product from a company with good support and service, even for Joe Blow from Tokyo. Not trying to run them down, it just seems they're living up to their reputation here. Just keep hounding them, that's about all you can do.

Well sent another message. I always follow up, just incase there having some issues. It's happened to me before where I have missed messages. Trying to be on the optimistic side.

Just act like you want to buy one of their high $$ items. They’ll get right back to you😃

So I felt it appropriate that I let everyone know that Skinz did make everything right with the issue I had with one of there products. I took a little to get ahold of them, but once I did they were very accommodating and professional. They are experiencing the supply issues just like everyone else. It has to be hard to have all this demand for product and not being able to products manufactured. My take is. It sucked having an issue, but they did stand by there product and then some. Let it snow!!!
