I just ordered a bunch of parts from NPD because they seemed to be cheaper as they always have their lowest rates. I asked around for a code and looked on the net but couldn't find one. I buy all my stuff from Classic so its disappointing I couldn't this time.
I also understand why you wouldn't want to give one group a code to always use. If you did that you would have to do it for everyone to be fair. In essence, you would be dropping your prices by 20%. The profit sinks and you may undercut competition to the point that they are no longer in business. That's not good for the consumer.
I did pay less than I would have from you but not 20 per cent which is what I was just offered in my email. I ordered the stuff 2 days ago because I need it by next week. I should have known you guys would do this as you and year one have sales almost every month between you so its my fault not yours and I don't expect a permanent 20%. However, is there any chance the guys on this board could get a group purchase now and again as we all don't always need to order a massive amount of parts like some guys would to get the price brake at I think it was $1000 but I could be wrong. So could we do a group purchase discount or would the sticking point be separate addresses?
Thanks for the comment. I think you are referring to our volume discounts program
which is designed to reward the customer who consolidates their purchases into one volume purchase instead of placing multiple smaller orders. The philosophy is that it is less costly for the company to take one large order, than it is to fulfill multiple smaller orders. So, the company can pass these savings on to the consumer. Here is how the program works.
Orders of $500 or more, receive a 5% discount.
Orders of $1000 or more receive a 10% discount, plus FREE* ground shipping. *Some restrictions apply, click this link
We understand your interest in discounts for forum members and group buys. We like the idea of implementing a discount for members of our sponsored forums, but currently, there are limitations to what we can do from a technical standpoint. You mentioned the separate addresses being a problem for group purchases and you are correct, this does create a problem for us. At this time, our computer system cannot process an order with multiple shipping addresses. But in addition to that issue, there are also security issues to consider involving the sharing of an account, credit card verification, the handling of returns and crediting back charges for returned merchandise, etc. that makes the proposal much more difficult to implement than one would imagine at first glance. We do appreciate our relationship with the members of this forum, so in the meantime, we invite each one of you to please sign up for our eblast
so you are always the first to know when we have a promotion. And if we can be of any further assistance to any of you, please let us know.
