    Default Perkopolis?

    Anyone have this, is it good?

    Shopping for set of all household appliances. While reading reviews came across RFD mention that Bosch appliances are 30% off thru Perkopolis. That's significant savings if it's true.

    Thinking of getting the WE Triangle MC to get Perkopolis.

    Wondering if anyone has direct experience buying appliances using this program?

    Sounds too good to be true.
    What's the connection with Triangle WE? I have that and I've never heard of Perkopolis. I'd think they'd be cramming that down my throat if they were partnered.

    I have triangle We, and have never heard of it, but if it requires you to buy appliances through a captive site, I'm sure the "out-the-door price" is not significantly better than other options. Certainly not anything close to 30% less.

    The Bosch Staff and Partners program is what they are talking about, and yes you can sign up through perkopolis and yes the Triangle WE gets you a perkopolis account. The Triangle offer was in their welcome package, I dont’recall much info on the the website. I have helped my MIL buy a 300 series dishwasher and it was about 20-30% off retail price. Discounts vary, the more expensive the line, the bigger the percentage discount.

    It’s direct from Bosch, nothing scammy about it, free shipping and all. I also have a Whirlpool VIP account from a RFD fiasco from years ago that I managed to keep, same deal with all whirlpool brands (kitchenaid, jennair, etc.).

    Dug up my invoice, bought a SHX863WD5N old model number now, towel bar handle, 300 series. $780 before tax. Free shipping.

    How do I get a Whirlpool VIP account?

    I've narrowed brands for appliances down to Whirlpool, KitchenAid or Bosch. Definitely Bosch or Miele dishwasher....

    If you look up the Triangle Roadside assistance program, that's where it lists Perkopolis as a reward in the program.

    *Kitchen Aid is made by Whirlpool, just for reference.

    Apparently you need the MC (which I have), then separately apply for the road side assistance, and then I didn't get past yet...

    I don't have an answer for this. They've since renamed it to Whirlpool Inside Pass. The RFD fiasco was when someone posted a code for a private event to sign up, it was a 300 page thread within 2-3 days and it seems like Whirlpool honored the orders but then basically disabled all accounts made in that period. I kept resetting my password over the 2-3 days and I managed to keep my account active to this date. I haven't bought any large items, in total I've purchased 5 stand mixers for friends and family and a couple other small kitchen appliances (food processor, hand blender, etc.).

    Perkopolis is a workplace/group discount provider. Some employers will participate in these programs. My employer gives me access to Venngo which is a very similar offering, but no Bosch with Venngo. Co-operators insurance I believe also gives their clients access to Venngo.

    This doesn't sound particularly compelling unless I'm missing something. I don't think I signed up for the Triangle roadside either. I should probably do that.

    The Bosch Staff and Partner discount is cheaper than most retail store discounts I've seen that are not clearance/blowout/floor model/last one type deal. The Bosch dishwasher at Costco warehouse people like is not even as cheap as this site.

    Brand new, free shipping. No hassle. Once you get the Bosch Staff and Partners account through sign up link, it's completely separate from Perkolopolis. It's a standalone Bosch Staff and Partners program. What's not to like if you are buying Bosch appliances?

    For the skeptics, post a price you find online for a Bosch appliance and I'll compare it with the Staff and Partners price.

    Sounds good. I like Bosch. I kinda hate the other dishwasher I bought this month and wish I had bought a Bosch. Might be swapping sometime.

    Anyone interested in a Whirlpool family of products, there is someone on Reddit giving away free passes to the Whirlpool Inside Pass program.

    Just search Reddit for "Whirlpool Inside Pass".

    They literally had emailed me an invite about 5 minutes after PMing them.

    Username: Izicial

    There seem to be some serious discounts on the Inside Pass website....many out of stock, but apparently stock is replenished and goes OOS again often.

    Will take rep charity points if it works out to savings on your purchase.

    I just went through the sign up process for roadside and they'll offer you 2 packages, personal or family i think were the choices. Go the family and they will tow any vehicle you're driving vs the personal where its only the vehicle registered to you.

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    Not dudes who buy shitty replacement dishwashers, obviously!

    How would you even put a dishwasher on title for a car, anyway?!

    I think the only true wrong move is having two names on car registration. That’s a nightmare.

    Then again. My wife’s car is in her name only. And it is the only car that seems to have issues with expired registration.

    I wonder if there is a correlation there.

    What is this thread about again?

    Thinly veiled brag? in a normal market i wouldnt want my name on 2 depreciating items but with the price of used cars now that could sound ballerish to some

    In regards to the family plan its basically a free tow for any car as long as you "say" you were driving it.
