    **ends April 20th, 2016**

    A few of the guys on T4R.org have requested me to do this again, figured id post it on here and see if anyone needs one.

    If the group size you want isn't available, please put your request in!

    Northstar battery group buy!

    [​IMG]

    This one took me forever to get started. I tried contacting Excide, they expressed NO interest in this. I contacted Optima and they pretty much ignored my constant requests for a discount.

    I couldn't get a vendor to provide discounts on Odyssey.
    Northstar, on the other hand replied and directed me to a distributor that's more than willing to work with me with this one.

    For those that are only familiar with Optima, here is a little more information from Northstar:

    http://www.northstarbattery.com/1/2/3.php

    Here are the group sizes PER Toyota's website:

    [​IMG]

    Group size sizing:

    [​IMG]

    The groups sizes that will be included in this group buy are:

    24, 24M, 24F, 27, 27F, 34/78, 31M and 35

    See more here:

    http://buy.northstarbattery.com/

    Please make sure to do your research here:

    http://www.northstarbattery.com/northstar/engine/literature.php

    and here:

    http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/154-1303-battery-bashing/

    [​IMG]

    So what is the discount?

    1-10 batteries ordered, regardless of type:

    24F/24 MAP of $299 - $24 off
    24M MAP of $314.99 - $24 off
    27F/27 MAP of $339 - $24 off
    35 MAP of $269 - $19 off
    31M MAP of $379 - $39 off
    34/78 MAP of $299 - $24 off

    11-20 batteries ordered, regardless of type:

    24F/24 MAP of $299 - $34 off
    24M MAP of $314.99 - $34 off
    27F/27 MAP of $339 - $39 off
    35 MAP of $269 - $34 off
    31M MAP of $379 - $64 off
    34/78 MAP of $299 - $34 off

    21+ batteries ordered, regardless of type:

    24F/24 MAP of $299 - $50 off
    24M MAP of $314.99 - $50 off
    27F/27 MAP of $339 - $51 off
    35 MAP of $269 - $45 off
    31M MAP of $379 - $74 off
    34/78 MAP of $299 - $50 off

    We don't need to achieve every tier level for every battery group. The tier level is per quantity, regardless of how many batteries per group get ordered.

    So if there is a total of 16 people signed up (ASSume, one battery per person), your discount is:

    24F/24 MAP of $299 - $34 off
    27F/27 MAP of $339 - $39 off
    35 MAP of $269 - $34 off

    FREE SHIPPING TO CONUS (ALASKA, HAWAII AND CANADA - will be custom shipping quotes) for ALL TIER LEVELS

    How do I sign up? Here!

    If you are interested in this:

    Sign up by replying to this thread. Don’t chicken out. You are either in or you aren’t. NO maybe, no waiting on the wife, gf or bf to get permission. There is enough time to make up your mind or find a doctor to sell your kidney or pawn your wife’s jewelry. If you are on the fence to see if it’ll go up to max discount before you jump in, you are HOLDING the group buy back. Don’t be that dude.

    Guys, List has been updated.

    The vendor and I have discussed, due to the large amount of interested people, he will start accepting payments on Monday or Tuesday of next week.

    The order will be turned into Northstar as a WHOLE on Friday the 15th of April. Everyone will have about 4 days to make payments, this is plenty of time!

    Purchasing starts tomorrow and will need to be finalized by Friday around noon.

    Vendor lives in the same town as the Northstar factory - He will submit the order to Northstar on Friday.

    The following week, Northstar will slap all the batteries on a pallet and the vendor will pick up.

    Batteries will then start shipping.

    It is not too late to join

    It doesn't help Tundras.com if the group buy is on a different site.... IMO.

    oh.. I think I know what he means.

    @csuviper is on Tacomaworld and 4runners.com. What I meant is he missed it on there since he is active there to.

    I didn't post the Northstar group buy on Tundras.com

    The last group buy was last month, but on other forums that CSU is on. That's what I meant.

    Subscribed for when this pops up in the future. Wouldn't mind starting out fresh with my new (to me) Tundra, but every 3 years I buy new batteries for the boat - it takes 7 batteries....and this is boat battery year come spring. :confused:

    I'm in the market for a new battery. Any idea when this deal will come around again?
