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 picked up my 2020 850 snow check on 9-21-19, and still haven’t seen the Polaris snow check monies.
supposed to be getting gift cards I believe.
I sent in and used both codes for the $500 and $200 deal.
Anyone received these yet?
It was an email sent from Polaris Snowmobile's to the email address of the person that snowchecked the 2019. It had a voucher code in it for $500 to use on a 2020 snowcheck and a $200 voucher code you could refer a friend with and get if they snowchecked a 2020. I received the email on March 6th this spring.
Talked to polaris customer service today , they are running a couple of weeks behind.
he verified that both my codes were entered correctly, said I should see the gift cards in the next 2-3 weeks.
so only 6-8 weeks late. A different program this year for sure, they should go back to letting the dealers take it off at the time of picking up your sno check.
make sure you follow up if you received the voucher and ordered a new sled. Call the number in the earlier post and it will start a “case number” to follow up with. The representative actually called me back today to follow up and give me the info.
i appreciate that type of customer service .
If you snowchecked a 19, you should have received an email last spring. I got my email on 3-6-19 as well, it sounds like that was the date polaris sent it out to those who checked a 19 sled.
hopefully that helps.
