    Did anyone take advantage of this and if so, how did it work. They extended this promo until the end of March and I wondered if it was applied instantly at purchase or do they make you jump through hoops and meet deadlines to get your money. I would not do business that way because it seems to me like it would be hard to get the money and there is no guarantee that you would.

    Anyone done this?

    No rebate to wait for, it comes right off your price.

    Call multiple dealers because they are all a bunch of sand bagging full of crap liars that wont give you the full fleet price if you trust them.

    I will pull my notes from last week and let you know what prices i have so far.

    Everytime we step into our friend's shop we feel lucky. This quote just gave me a greater appreciation for what we have; what you said is the truth though - bummer.

    I just bought 3 v-rides and got fleet price. 20% off for each. Scag is offering fleet for buying one v-ride but u also qualify for fleet with purchase of two or more mowers of any type.

    they all tell you fleet price is set in stone, decided by the factory. Yet i call 10 dealers and get 10 different prices ranging over 1,000 dollars between the low and the high.

    Fleet price my a$$

    I can imagine - In fact, I know it to be true. I hear horror stories all the time. We lucked out, to be honest. Happen to have a really good friend we grew up with in the industry - It most definitely helps.
