You don't need suspension to rid ein the winter. If you are getting a good deal on a bike that will work well as a Winter Beater, then go for it. Winter is hard on bikes, so getting a used / good quality bike is definitely a good idea. That way you won't feel guilty when you see tons of salt and grit get on your drivetrain.
If you do get the bike do add descent fenders!
