Got an invite in the mail last week for a VIP Event at my local Rockler. It says they’ll be giving away “prizes” and have some special sales deals.

Has anyone been to one of these events? Trying to decide if it’s worth stopping by.

I’m still trying to figure out why they are sending me catalogs, since I’ve never bought anything from them ever, or even been in one of their stores. I doubt I’ll get a VIP invite, but you never know :)

I have the super-coveted “VIP” status with Rockler. I get extra special treatment like free shipping with $35+ orders and a catalog every month.

No store within about 400 miles, but I’m still special enough to qualify.
I value this relationship more than even my Homeowners Club of America membership!

So to all you unwashed masses, neener neener! 8^)

I got an invitation also. I went ahead and registered. I’m curious how many people get these. I do have a “Pro” account with them as I have a state sales tax waiver and business license. Might be interesting.

An old post but apparently Rockler is having it again. I signed up for it and got my ticket. It’s next week here.

Bumping an old thread…but I just got my first VIP invite.

Any feedback from any of the past events?

I guess the $1500 I spent there last month got me special treatment….better not tell them I’m completely tapped out before I RSVP.

I’ve been to the VIP event and it wasn’t anything spectacular, but it was fun. Free snacks, drinks, specials outside of their normal sales, 20% off entire purchase, demonstrations, etc. If it’s close by, it’s worth it to pop in see how yours does it as I’m sure each store is different to an extent. Like my Rockler will have sales on the 30” x 60” 3/4 Birch Plywood and that’s not even listed on Rockler’s website.

It’s about 30 minutes away, so might be worth the drive just to see if I can score a door prize.

My wife says she’s game to go, so might as well give it a shot.

Thanks for the reply, I’ll post back how it goes.

Bumping this again.
I was thinking I’d go for the door prizes, wondering if anyone who’s been can say if the prizes are worthwhile, or if so many people showed up that your odds of getting anything good were nil?
