    Ahh well some places do it. Take Morimoto (aka The Retrofit Source). So a week before Black Friday they allow dealers to get a little bit of a discount. It's not much usually (about 5% or so) but it's not bad. The problem is that during BF this particular brand typically has 25% off direct to consumers. SOO us dealers are kind of forced to match that. The 5% helps but let me tell ya, it still sucks to have to take 25% off without us getting massive discounts as well.

    So usually there are not a lot of dealer incentives during Black Friday week (or the week prior), at least no where near the savings you'd think. So with Baja taking care of 100% of the rebate it REALLY helped us dealers. We got to keep our same profit margins AND sell more AND not worry about having to do a rebate ourselves. Baja handled it all.

    Hey guys!

    We are doing our best to get these out as quickly as possible. The stack is huge, and please keep in mind, we don't hire additional bodies to process these. Lots of data entry, cross referencing data to verify, following up with people that left out key info, etc.

    Those that sent out their info in the first week got theirs within a week. if you submitted in the first couple weeks after Black Friday, you should have already seen the check. If you submitted later, you are looking at 30-60 days to get your check.

    If you feel yours has been delayed beyond a reasonable time frame, please email me at [email protected] and I will do my best to check your status.

    Thanks for your patience!

    -Chris F.

    Thank you for the support and for the nice words!!

    We don't offer many discounts, but we feel this one is pretty generous. Automating this process would open us up to fraud and hence would still require manual cross referencing anyway. This is a HUGE annual undertaking for our team. We are happy to absorb it and are happy there are plenty of gracious and grateful people taking advantage of the deal.

    OK, I’ll admit, that’s a truly legit justification for MIRs. I’m all for helping out small businesses.

    Sent mine in first week, still waiting for check.
    I'm just going to let this go now, makes more sense than fretting, sending multiple emails, watching this thread, etc.
    Probably not going to buy from BD on any BF sale again though.

    I received my rebate yesterday. I mailed in my rebate on 12/12. No complaints here.

    Can't remember when I mailed mine in, but received my check this past week.

    We probably need to just not be in a hurry while waiting on the rebate check.
