Aire Discount?

So I’ve decided, well my wife is allowing me, to buy a new raft. I’ve decided on an Aire 156R. We won’t be hitting the water till spring so I do have some time but I was wondering if there are any known sales on Aire boats. I know they rarely go on sale but obviously, even a 10% discount would be pretty huge. Thanks for any advice!

Check with The Boat People. I got a discount by buying with check instead of CC.

Outdoorplay.com has a storewide 20% promo code every now and then. I checked it on their Aire Lynx IIs recently and it worked. No idea when the next one would be though. Worth a shot.

Not sure if the shipping would kill the benefits of the deal, but the Aire factory store often runs discounts around the holidays. There might be some options on how to get the boat to you. If you call the Aire store ask for Sarah, she rocks!

I'm local so take it for what its worth but DRE has sales around this time of year on certain AIRE boats. I've screen shot the deals the last several years. In 2017 they had 160D which retailed at the time for $5,149.00 and was on sale for $4,376.675. Just to give you an example of discount levels that come up.

That was December 8, 2017

The last few years Aire has done a 15% promotion that you can get through all of their dealers. It was different times of year...and no guarantee when or if they'll do it again but its something to think about.

I bought my first Aire during one of those promotions from Outdoorplay. They do free shipping and no tax...so that can save you a ton too. Their 20% off deals they typically DO NOT include Aire stuff...or at least not the rafts. Trust me...I tried.

My last one I talked to Matt at Four Corners Riversports in Durango (and Cascade and Outdoorplay too) and he gave me the best deal. I was happy with both deals.

A lot of places may not do a discount on the boat or not as big a deal, but they will give a discount on all of the gear you buy with the boat so that may be worth it if you need frames, oars, straps, etc.

If you don't need a brand new setup... a used one is always gonna be the best deal especially if you can find a package that comes with everything you need to get on the river.

I'm pretty sure sotar is doing a 15% industry appreciation sale right now on gear and boats. They also have an overstock of some 13' boats that are supposed to be discounted pretty heavily. I'm not sure of the exact details but I got an email from my outfitter about it. They were asked to let all of their guides know. I guess they're boats from some race that they sponsored. 13' is too small for my liking and I get prodeals so there's not really any reason for me to go in to the store. Figured I would pass it on if anyone is interested.

Backcountry (yeah the sue happy retailer) does offer their discounts and coupons towards NRS and Aire boats (they just sent me a 20% off one item) and you can often get up to 15% cash back through ibotta on top of the discount. Don't think they sell the R series but they do have the D and DD as well as the puma series.

Given what BCDC has done to small companies, why would ANYONE use them!!! But go ahead, sell your soul.
