Mon, Jul 7th, 2014
Posted in All Agriculture

Farm Bureau is pleased to announce that a new FB Member Advantage! program with Polaris Industries Inc., is available to eligible members in Minnesota, effective immediately. The roll-out of the new three-year program with Polaris, the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles, demonstrates Farm Bureau’s continued investment in exceeding member expectations.

“Our commitment to providing our members with exclusive access to superior, high-quality brands, programs and products remains a priority,” said AFBF President Bob Stallman. “It’s a pleasure to introduce this special purchase program, which will help our members save money on high-quality, all-terrain vehicles that can stand up to rugged use on farms and ranches. This program provides another outstanding example of how it pays to be a member of Farm Bureau.”

Through the new program, eligible Farm Bureau members receive a $300 per unit discount on all Polaris Utility and Sport Vehicles, $200 per unit on all All-Terrain Vehicles and $300 per unit on all GEM Electric Vehicles. Members are eligible for the discounts 30 days after joining a participating Farm Bureau. Discounts are available for the purchase of specified Polaris off-road vehicles without exclusion in states that participate in the Polaris program.

To take advantage of the Polaris program discounts through FB Member Advantage!, members log on to fbverify.com/Polaris where eligibility will be confirmed once a membership number and zip code is entered. A certificate will be made available online that must be printed and taken to the dealership of choice for presentation to the sales person. Certificates expire after 60 days.

FB Member Advantage! increases the economic value of membership in Farm Bureau by teaming with leading companies to offer special incentives that demonstrate strong support for agriculture and rural America. FB Member Advantage! is the member benefits program of the American Farm Bureau Federation, America’s largest organization of farmers and ranchers, and those who support them.
