Default Any Discounts From Tirerack for NASIOC Members?

Just curious if Tirerack.com offers any discounts for us since they are a NASIOC supporter.

I always thought it was funny that they sponsor the forums but do not offer discounts. I've bought from them several times and always mentioned the forum and although they can find discounts for other forums they never have any for us

I placed my last order at discount tire instead, at least they had free shipping.

They only give discounts to those of us who have actually contributed to the forum over the years. If you have a member number over 1000, you're out. Sorry.

They do? I've never seen that. Maybe I need to join some more forums.

Not sure how it works out for you up in the frozen tundra of Canada, but from what I've seen, TR's price + shipping is typically a couple/few bucks per tire cheaper than DTD's price with free shipping. But I always check both, as it's close enough that sometimes DTD comes out ahead.

And I was just kidding about the member number thing. It's actually 121, not 1000.

yea i work at a dealership and can get a discount on tires, but tirerack is a buisness after all and if they offered discounts to everyone who is part of a forum there profits would take a huge hit.

I think they give have a deal setup where they help sponsor the fprum when we mention that we are members. We may not be putting that money back into our pockets, but it is going to keep the forum going (and make money for the guy(s) that run the forum)

Really? You think that they should give a discount to all 230K+ members that say they're a member of a web forum?

Unfortunately we do not offer discounts on our items due to the pricing structure we set (we offer you our best prices every day, regardless of volume), and in fairness to the numerous auto enthusiast sites we sponsor as well. Management feels its not 'fair' to offer discounts to one forum and not another.

However when ordering through this link and referencing "Luke" as your 'previous contact' a portion of the proceeds goes to support the NASIOC site.

Hey, it's not like we let just anybody join this forum! After the rigorous vetting process that everyone goes through - filling out the application, getting the 5-member panel convened to review the application, the 18-page thesis, etc - it only seems fair that people deserve a discount for being a member here. And they should give discounts for members on every forum that TR sponsors or is involved with. And the discounts should be cumulative, so I could go join a bunch of forums and end up getting tires for free.
