MBc $ Discounts.

Tom,is it possible that if enough MBc members get together wishing to purchase the same(or the same + additional) items from the SAME vendor an OFFICIAL MBc stereo-typed email can be sent to that vendor beforehand requesting a discount?

I think it's up to the vendors,kinda like a sale you find in the store.
The Wheelman for example offered me an MBc discount in the forum,however much of a discount that is.

Well if you think about it, in the end someone has to pay for the discount, and I don't think it would be the purchasing companies.

The Wheelmaster is not a particularly good example cos he's known to MBc...i'm more talking about vendors who don't have a clue who we are or what we represent.If a vendor sees a potential number of customers all with the same interest and roughly wanting the same comodity it's in HIS interest to attract us.....$ discounts attract,so the more he sells the more $'s he makes......Capitalism at it's finest. :)

No-one pays....the vendor would sell more items hence more profit.

Only discount I'd like is for the NuVinci hub...

Tell Staton-Inc we'll take 100 of them!!

That's an example....i also would be interested in the NuVinci but not just yet cos i have too many other things on the "go" and don't have the spare dough(at the mo)
Say for example however u found 4 other ppl wanting to buy a NuVinci then Tom(or whoever) emails David at Staton in an Official capacity and sayes "what's your best percentage discount for 5 NuVinci hubs for 5 MBc members"
David knows MBc but most other vendors don't and i'm sure they would like to hear from us...$'s for them,cheaper prices for us.......win win.
PS...it would be up to the individual vendor to decide what the minimum purchase would be to qualify for any discount.The worst they can say is "go away" :)

A discount on some true tuned pipes would make them much more affordable

This would be a good example to follow-through AFTER Tom has given it his official sanction.
Decide exactly on what u want and a few places where to get it,then place a thread in MBc Buy/Sell/Trade asking for ppl interested in buying the same pipe.
After u have collected a number of DEFINATE orders approach Tom to email that vendor/vendors and see if he can get all of u a discount......if u don't try you'll never succeed.
BTW...There's nothing stopping u doing it yourself but i feel it has more clout if MBc is behind u.

HI All,

Fetor has a good point about quantity purchases....FWIW I'd be good with a discount for multiple purchases.
