RFD discounts for Schluter products

Hi,

Given the popularity of Schluter products amongst RFD members, someone suggested in a previous thread that we look for a discounted source of Schluter products. I was picking up items from Argyle Flooring (GTA) so I approached them to see if they'd be open to such an arrangement. I asked them for their RFD pricing for several common items (in particular ones that I had ordered) and they came back with the following.

(Note, obviously prices may change) I will double-check the numbers for typos.

I'll let Argyle know that we are interested and establish this discount. Note that I'm not associated with Argyle and am not receiving any referral or commissions. Just say that you're from "red flag deals".

I may approach other retailers as well, but Argyle is currently the only retailer that I have dealt with, and in my judgement, they are reputable.

OP, how would the buy work? Can I go in myself and pick up what I need or do we need a minimum purchase? I'll be redoing two bathrooms in the next couple months and ditra, ditra heat and kerdi shower kits are what I'm looking for.

It'd be everyone on their own. They don't carry too much inventory - I ordered, faxed CC info and picked up about a week later. I assume it'll just be mentioning that you're part of RFD, etc.

Great idea t3359. Wish this existed for a lot of other supplies too. e.g. Plumbing, electrical, hardwood, laminate, windows, etc.

These guys are mainly flooring guys - I saw hardwood at least in the showroom when I was there. Yeah, maybe I or someone else can approach another retailer for those other products. I'll ask if they are willing to discount flooring materials for us once we establish this deal.

Well, not as much expressed interest as anticipated, but it costs them nothing and us nothing to establish this discount. I'll let them know that we're interested in starting.

OP, if you can establish the discount, that would be great. As you said, it doesn't cost anything but there would be considerable savings for some that will start projects later down the road. If you can/want, could you let me know what the pricing would be for:

1. 32x60 shower kit (KK81152ABSE)
2. ditra membrane (DITRA150)
3. ditra heat kit (DHEK12040)

Thanks!

I know some shops do - I've been to one which had a huge spool in the back. I'll find out.
