    Saw on a previous post (from Navig8r):

    "I was at an Exmark dealer today (actually there to look at a blower) and he tells me that Exmark has a financing incentive right now (through Sheffield) for NO payments or interest until April 2003 !! "

    Has anyone else heard of this; I don't see anything about it on the Exmark website. I was at an Exmark dealer Thursday and the salesman didn't mention anything about it.

    The dealer in Winston-Salem told me it was 90 days same as cash or, no interest for a year. You still have to make payments though. Apparently, if it's not paid off in a year the interest goes back to day one. He told me that a lot of guys get new credit cards with low intro rate and swap cards for new ones with no fee balance transfer when the intro rate is over. Gosh, that's a lot like kiting checks isn't it?

    I don't see anything on the Exmark website about same as cash for a year. Is that something only certain dealers offer?

    I heard on the radio that a dealer around here is offering 0% for 12 months, 9.9% after the first year...
