Anyone starting this yet?

There was a thread somewhere, but didn't get much traffic nor gain traction I guess.

But, I'll drop my "I'm in" with this thread as well.

I could be in for a StarGazer Wake Edition if the deal is right.

There might be a group buy on planetnautique in mid-march if anyone is interested and this one doesn't get going. Link here.

If not put me down for a stargazer here as well.

In the past what has a "group buy" done to the price of stargazer?

Here is a link to the group buy I put together last year with Florida Inboards.

Group buys aren't allowed on this site, unless they advertise on here, so you will have to look at the other sites for an organized group buy.

Is the group buy still valid?

It looks like you can get in through Planet Nautique. There is a link in the 9th post of this thread.
Every time I have tried to organize a GB on this site it gets deleted.

You've got "group buys" going on all over the place - on manufacturer-specific sites everywhere. Flag holders, perfect pass, quick-release mechanisms.

Not sure - but it seems like you've got some skin in the game. Smells fishy . . .
Old    Michael Allen (TeamAllen)      Join Date: Feb 2013       01-28-2014, 10:02 PM Reply   
Skin in what game? Like I get a commission or something? I like saving $$. I am a contractor with a family and money is always tight. I have an older boat and try to save where I can. When I find a good deal on a desired product I like to pass it along, with nothing extra worked in it for me.

I have found with a GB you need a group. One forum doesn't seem to get the amount of participants required, so I spread the word. Here is proof of it on the PN Forum.
http://www.planetnautique.com/vb3/sh...Group-Buy-2012
They couldn't get enough in 2012. The GB was closed down in post #40 of that thread. They only had 5 participants. The next year I contacted the same dealer and spread the word through inboard specific forums and 40 boaters benefited from the discount.

I have only set up 3 GBs, as you mentioned. One for PP last year, one for Comptech trick release and a flag holder. I have asked for permission from the sites admins (including WW = not allowed). It takes me a lot of effort to keep up with all the sites. I have benefited from others setting up a GB and appreciate their efforts and don't mind contributing my time. I guess I have been too aggressive in marketing? I just don't want another boater to say, "How come I didn't know about that deal?"

I have never met any of the dealers of these products. The ONLY benefit (other than saving $ like the other participants) I have received from organizing these three GBs is from the flag holder. The owner sent me a flag holder for free of his own generosity. I did not ask and was going to buy it like everyone else.

I don't have anything to do with this years PP GB, but my hat goes off to the guy that does!

I had been wanting a flag holder, found that group buy. 20% coupon worked for me. Was only about 6 bucks, but I was going to buy one anyway, why not save some beer money

I'm working with Jody and setting up this group by. check out my posts at Planetnautique and the crew. this post will probably be deleted from here since dave hates saving money

Thanks for trying to get something like this going it seems like a good idea but a little shady. So I'm out. Good luck.

how does it seem shady. you work directly with jody at Florida Inboards and send him all your money. you get the same great customer service from PP as if you bought from them since Florida Inboards is an authorized reseller. PP actually called me last year to confirm my gauge color b/c they thought it was wrong. To each his own but saving this money buys a lot of gas and beer and has no risk.
