    Have anyone ever bought a mower over the internet?????????

    Wright has their mowers on their web site for sale at big discounts???????????????????????????

    I was playing on the WEB last night and saw it!!!!

    It's called the cannel partner Program.

    Has Any One bought a mower from them??

    Their showing something like 20% Discount until the end of the month.

    I've never heard of anything like this.

    Don't get me wrong I've bought stuff from the internet before it is a first as far as I know.

    You acutally pick the thing up from a local dealer from what I got form the site?

    Dealer must be thrilled (NOT) cause he's getting no commision. Only thing he can hope for is warranty work and parts. BFD.

    I went and looked at their cHannel partner thing. They don't have the new WB on sale, though. :(

    Actually the dealer must be getting something out of the transaction as the program states you select which dealer you want it delivered to to complete the transaction. However, I would bet it is not that big of a commission as it is stated that not all dealers are participating.

    You're really not buying from a website. You are just placing order. You are buying from participating dealer. Olfart could've been a little more clearer.

    That's what I was thinking also. I'm sure Wright and their dealers have something worked out, I hope.

    Yup, the "velke mower." Someone mentioned it on another thread a while ago.

    The first time I went on the site a letter from Bill Wright explaining the deal that we all do better.

    Every one must be making money (and we get to share with better pricing for us) or they wouldn't particiapte would they.

    There are participating and nonparticipating dealers so they must have a choice in the matter.

    The deals seem to be good through the year I found a page on the site showing diffirent discounts during diffirent periods

    I'm still trying to figure it out my self so if some one has more info let me know
