Re-Tooling an Entire Shop

I am retooling a shop—20" planer, 12" jointer, SawStop, edge sander, band saw, lathe, dust collection, etc etc— the ticket stands above $20,000.

I am in search of the elusive 10% off coupons from Grizzly.
Any help here will earn my eternal gratitude.

They sent me a 10% discount thing for veterans this month, if you are a vet you can use that


Or if it is that big on a purchase I would call them and I would bet they would give you a discount or at least free shipping and that is always close to 10%


I will be doing the same thing shortly if we ever get our farm sold, I was going to move all the machines but decided to just sell and buy new, but my bill will be close to or over $50,000 just to replace most of what I have, there will be somethings I won't replace though, don't use them enough to justify buying them again

There is no app for experience

@ Catpower —

I did call them. They offered 535 off if I paid by wire, 135 if I paid by CC. So... 2% on the high-side, less than a point on the low-side...? Seems kinda lame. I'm just gonna pull the trigger on the order, but I am generally pretty unimpressed with the lack of customer care on their end. If someone's dropping that kind of money into your business, seems reasonable to give them a break... especially when its part of your annual routine. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

It's their business. They can run it how they see fit, I guess; still a sorta free country.

Never be satisfied with the first No. Keep on trying and go up the management ladder when the first no you get is from a lower level employee.



It doesn't seem right to me either. Maybe a relative has a military discount? I don't know how that works, but if it's just a number, that should be easy to use.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
