Important update from Festool about $50 vouchers

Customers can go to www.festoolpro5.com and claim their $50 rebate. To qualify for a voucher redemption, a customer must purchase a second qualifying tool and submit the proper information via the website www.festoolpro5.com to receive the $50 reimbursement. The voucher may not be used for PRO 5 LTD sander, accessories or consumable items, and cannot be used in conjunction with ongoing promotions, closeout or discontinued items.[/i]

Now, or November?

@Michael Kellough, sorry I wasn't clear. This is for redemption of the voucher. I will clarify in my previous post. Vouchers will be included in the Systainer with the sander.

Vouchers will be included in the Systainer with the PRO 5 sander. Customers can go to www.festoolpro5.com and claim their $50 rebate once they purchase a qualifying tool. To qualify for a voucher redemption, a customer must purchase a second qualifying tool and submit the proper information via the website www.festoolpro5.com to receive the $50 reimbursement. The voucher may not be used for PRO 5 LTD sander, accessories or consumable items, and cannot be used in conjunction with ongoing promotions, closeout or discontinued items.

"qualifying tool"??  Does this mean there are only certain tools the voucher can be used on?  Seems to imply there are exceptions   [eek]

The only tool that does not qualify is the PRO 5 Sander, 201234. You basically can't use the $50 to buy another one.

SysLite, MFT, and Systainers are listed under "Power Tools" not "Accessories". Do they qualify? Or is it only for actual power tools?
Sorry for nitpicking. Thanks.

Hi Shane,

Long time Festool fan but new to this forum.

There seems to be a high demand on these units and I also placed an order yesterday with Toolnut as well.  Is there any concern that Festool USA won't have enough stock to fill the current pre-orders and there is only a limited space in a warehouse/production?

No, no concerns. I have live feed from Festool PRO 5 Sander new manufacturing facility in Wendlingen. Here is today's 3:00 am snapshot:

@Svar, good questions. A power tool is considered a product with a serial number by Festool, generally speaking. MFTs and SysLites have serial numbers, Systainers do not. The WCR, for instance, also has a serial number and is considered a tool. But, basically, it's battery-operated, electric or pneumatic tools.

@mrt076, welcome to the forum and thanks for the order! I cannot offer any insight into Festool's warehouse or production capacities as they relate to demand for this promotion. That would be a question for them. Sorry I don't have more info to share on that.

Shane, thanks for your reply.  I guess we will see.  I have been a Festool user for a little over 5 years and I have never seen this much interest/demand so this is going to get interesting.

Can you use the existing ETS125 pads with new PRO 5 Sander? I apologize if I missed this question before.

@Rustys, yes, you can use all of the ETS 125 EQ accessories with the PRO 5 with the exception of the old Turbo dust bag. I don't think it would work because of the new dust port's outside diameter.

Important Update

Festool has asked all dealers to suspend taking orders for the PRO 5 sander until further notice.

Well that keeps me from spending more money unnecessarily.  Probably gives me a bit of more precious time back, too.

I guess Festool was right all along...it was indeed a limited time offer, as in a 3-day limited time offer. [eek]

I feel bad for the brick & mortar stores, you know the offer comes out mid-week and the average Joe thinks I'll just go to my local Woodcraft, Betterleys, fill in the name, this weekend and order my sander, but the party's over before he gets there. Who'd have thunk...3 days.

  Is that not the truth or what.... I spoke to my local dealer, who says they had multiple commercial shops buying 5-10 of the sanders at a time. I think it's the multiple buyers that Festool didn't plan on with this sale.  [eek] [eek] [scared] [scared]

Not sure why you'd wait on something like this, when it doesn't charge until it ships.

When in doubt with deals, buy now, think about it later.

I'm pretty sure many were bought for resale. Watch Classifieds and e-bay in a month. I think the deal was too good and had this unintended consequence.  [sad]

Shane,
Is the voucher transferable to another person? Not sure I'll buy another tool, could just give it to someone else, add a follower the green cult.  [big grin]

@Svar, there was nothing to say that it wasn't transferable, so I would assume that's fine. @TylerC can confirm.

I feel Festool and dealers should figure out a way to limit sales to one per person.  The goal of this promotion was to get people to try festool.  Being that's there is a limited supply it doesn't allow for multiple sales to a single person.  The sanders will sell out before everyone gets one if people are buying 5-10 at a time.

I agree, a bit of a stupid school-boy error on Festool's part if they were allowing people to order 5+ units. Should have limited it to one per household/business.

Perhaps, this is why preorders are suspended while they are rethinking the strategy.

Let's hope that is indeed the case and that this promotion can proceed in the direction it was originally targeted for.  [big grin]
