If you are in the horse community, you know buying and operating necessary machinery can be expensive. It’s stressful to think about where you can get the proper equipment and how much it will cost. As an APHA member, however, you can access substantial discounts with America’s No. 1 best-selling tractor brand: John Deere!
Ways to Save
After 30 days of membership, APHA members are qualified for one of the two discount programs: the Cash Discount Program or the Full-Time Discount Program.
John Deere Cash Discount Program:
- Available to all APHA members
- Discounts from $35 to $3,700 off select equipment
- Cash discount can be used with low-rate financing from John Deere credit
John Deere Full-Time Discount Program:
- Available to full-time horse operations, professionals, breeders and trainers.
- Up to 28% off
- List price discounts off retail; customer is responsible for freight and setup
- Financing through John Deere financing using standard rates
How to Start Saving
Before purchasing, call an APHA member representative with John Deere at (877) 462-2294 to confirm which discount applies to your account. Remember to say you are using your APHA Xtras benefit!
What Members are Saying
Listen to what Randell and Melanie Pace from Circle P Farm in Heflin, Alabama, had to say about their experience.
“The APHA Xtras benefits of just being an APHA member gave us a huge discount on our John Deere Gator. Not even realizing the discount applied toward something like this, I asked our salesman so he could check on it, and we received $1,500 off! Thank you, APHA. We love being a member. Make sure you’re a member and take advantage of all the Xtras benefits—we love them.”
