If you’ve ever been frustrated by heading to your local tool dealer to get a hands-on look at the latest new tool reviewed in Popular Woodworking Magazine (or in one of our online reviews) only to find they don’t have it on the showroom floor, then Jet has the guarantee for you.
As of yesterday (June 9, 2014) Jet has implemented it’s new $50 Showroom Guarantee. What that means to you is, you can go to the Jet website (JETTools.com), check out any category or tool on the site. If you click on the “Where to Buy” or “Find a Dealer” button, you can look up your local JET Select dealer. If the web site says they JET Select dealer has the tool on the showroom floor and it isn’t, JET will give you a $50 Visa gift card (all you need to do is submit a claim).
Personally, I think there’s no better way to decide whether to purchase a new tool than to look at it in person. And nearly everyone has experienced seeing something online where the vendor claims it’s “in stock” in their showroom only to find a great big empty once you’ve trekked half way across creation to get there. Fifty dollars would go along way to take the sting out of an experience like that for me.
