If you had $500 to spend at a dealer, what would you get?
So, I'm closing the deal on a new V-Strom, and I'm pondering the Suzuki "bonus" offers... I'm doing the financing through my own bank at much better rates, so I avoided the Suzuki financing option completely... Another option is to add a 2nd year of financing onto the original year... and the last is a $500 in store credit to spend on basically anything, which is the option I'm leaning towards.
Now here's the thing, the dealer will give me a 20% discount on stuff, but not stuff bought with the $500 credit... I'd like to get a center stand and engine guards, but after checking, they didn't show any engine guards from Suzuki. Not to mention that the price on the center stand seemed a little high... So ultimately I'm wondering if I should just stock up on a bunch of low margin stuff that they wouldn't be able to discount that far anyways?
I'm thinking of things like tank protector stickers, helmet bag, bike lock, lube, plastic cleaner, extra visor, etc etc etc... Just stock up on a bunch of the small items that add up over time.
Is this a good strategy? I've already got a jacket, helmet and gloves on order... So what sort of items would you recommend to get on a deal like this?
