Performance Bike rocks!



Today, I got my order from Performance that I did for the double points weekend. Along with that, I received two pieces of mail from Performance, and I assumed they were flyers or something. Imagine my shock when I opened the first and counted up that I received 10 (TEN) $10.00 coupons, and the second envelope had an additional $10 coupon. So I got $110 in coupons, and I spent about $400 at the store, so I got my 20% back in spades! Whoa, Performance rocks!

Along with those coupons, I still have all the coupons I've saved since I joined. I must have at least $400 in coupons by now, so I'm now trying to figure out what big ticket item I want to purchase. I have to say, I like getting money back from Performance, especially after I bought everything cheap because it was on sale. I am really liking Performance right now!

Performance bike rocks! Whooo hooooooooooooo!!!

Well, I'm glad someone's having a good experience with Performance. I certainly never did. OTOH, the owner of my FBS just called me up and said he's holding a free ticket for me to go with him to Interbike. I estimate that if I added up this, that and the other thing, I've received around $300 to $400 per year of stuff from my FBS... everything from ride tickets to random gifts and free service.

There is no consitancy with Performance. Sometimes the deliver, other times they really suck eggs.

Would you like cream with that?


No thanks, just the coupons... There are a couple of Performances here in town.

PriO, are you a member of the performance bike club? In order to receive the coupons, you have to be a member, then when you spend at the store, on the site, or use the catalog, you get points, which accumulates into the coupons they send out. If you're spending money there, it doesn't make sense not to become a member. I think you pay like $20 for the membership, but I've gotten that money back about 2 mailings into my first membership. Everything else is just gravy from here on out.

I get the Team points, but have never received coupons. Why do they bother sending you out paper when you can just accumulate points in your account? Are you really special?

I think it depends on where you start your team performance account: if it's in a store, you'll get the coupons mailed to you regardless of future purchases being online or in-store (you can see your current total online though). If you start online, your points remain digital as the accumulate.

At least this is what I can tell - I signed up in-store and have only made web purchases since, but keep getting coupons sent to me.

I get the coupons sent and I registered in the store, but when I log in online, I do see the points I've accumulated too. I'm not sure what that's all about.

I see them online too - and kept getting mad that the numbers would go up and then suddenly drop (since they had sent me a coupon in the mail that explained the drop ).

However, if you try adding your points to your cart at checkout, I think they only account for 1% off, instead of the expected 10% - so your 1000 points online are good for $1 off your order, as opposed to the $10 coupon you'd get in the mail.

At least this is what I saw when I tried to apply the 820 points I had online at the time - came to a whopping $0.82 off my order, so I cancelled that transaction!

Yeah, I've only redeemed my points once- I got nothing for it, so I just don't bother doing it that way anymore. The coupons are definitely more lucrative.

That has been my experience also. The 20% off has kept me around, though!

I signed up online and can only use my points online. But it should be 100 points per $1. I ordered some stuff last week and used 6000 points. They took $60.00 off. Must have been a glitch in the system if you only got $0.82 off.

I called them, & they said they have "online" memberships, & "instore" memberships. Since I signed up in the store, they send me coupons, if I had signed up over the internet, my points would just continue to accumulate; they also said I could change to an online membership if most of my orders would be by phone or the internet.

My last order I used like 482 points (they don't issue coupons until they reach 1000), & it amounted to $4.82. The rest of my coupons have already been sent from my new bike purchase (double point), so I'm pondering using them to make a really good purchase of another bike for my wife.

Redfooj,
I got the SE's too (ordered the comps). Are the SE's any good? I had already put them on my bike and hadn't looked closely. Anyone have any experience with this type?

I agree, since they bought out my LBS I get some great experiences, other times poor. Lately though, they are on the upswing. Though, I feel I'm seeing way to much of thier product other than other man. products now. No more Cannondale in So Cal at Pref.
