What is the BLADE® Promotion Incentive Program?
If you purchase a set of BLADE Carbon Wheels®, we will provide you with your very own promotion code (ie., only you have this code). This code can be given to friends, family or other local riders interested in purchasing BLADE® wheels (word of mouth, social media, etc). Upon purchase of a set of wheels where your promotion code is entered, the purchaser of the wheels receives $50.00 off the wheel-set purchase price. At the end of the year, we tally up the number of times your promotion code was used and multiply this by $100. For example, if 4 customers used your promotion code, you would receive a $400 cheque at the end of the year in gratitude for your time, effort and investment in BLADE® Carbon Wheels.
