• 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"


    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.

Wasn't sure where exactly to post this but with the traffic in this area and it being specifically "Polaris" related, I think this is a good start.

For the next few months, December, January, February and March, I'll start a new thread titled "Pic, Post & Prize, Thanks Polaris". Every month and I'll be looking for just that.... A pic of your Polaris machine with a brief notation about your sled, or something as simple as "Thanks Polaris" with the pic.

At the end of the month, I will draw one name from those who have posted in the monthly thread and the winner will receive a gift package courtesy of Polaris and myself. At the end of each month, I'll contact the winner via private message to request your address and then ship the items out.

So yes it's that easy, make a post with pic and you are in the running for a prize at the end of the month!!!

This thread will be for the December drawing so post away boys!!
