Is festoolsales.com legit?
« on: March 21, 2019, 08:02 AM »
I'm considering purchasing some Festool items and saw this site, https://festoolsales.com, says they are an authorized dealer and have an attractive option of financing up to $10k with 0% Inerest if paid within 12 months.

Even better they let you split purchases up to $1000 over 4 payments.

Their social media is blank. Anybody purchase from them?

Cool, they have a "malfunction table"  [eek] (In the semi-stationary section under tools).

Just asking the question, I'm on mobile and don't see any typos. They partner with Klarna, for payments I guess.

Again, just wondering if anyone has purchased from them or heard from them. Don't know what's funny.

I know of someone (not me) who bought from them and used their third party financing options.  They are listed as an authorized Festool dealer with a physical location outside of Atlanta, GA.

Sorry, I don't have any experience with the site. I actually thought your post was spam, it being your first post and mentioning a webshop.
But I really liked the typo in the dropdown menu [smile]:


/edit: made a typo of my own [embarassed]

If you're looking to finance, consider using Amazon instead. Hartville is a retailer on there and you can get an Amazon store card with 0% for up to 24 months depending on the purchase. It seems to me this would be a safer route than an unknown retailer.

I removed my comment as it was clearly worded poorly and has caused confusion. Excuse me for making a fool of myself while being the clown. I certainly had no intentions of degrading anyone.

Best,

Reed

I was looking for "festools-online.com" which is the successor to Bob's store, but accidentally ended up at "festoolsonline.com" that redirects to festoolsales.com, because of the confusing name w/ and w/o a dash.  I purchased a vac-sys hose from them and the transaction went smoothly.

Frankly I am shocked this post isn’t spam. That said, it’s good to know what @Bob Marino has been doing with his time since “retiring.”

I'm slow...help me out with the Bob Marino connection. I don't see one.

Just a poorly worded joke that lost most of its humor after it left my fingertips, sorry.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't even think to look on the official Festool site to see if it was listed...I do see that it is. Thanks again.

I ran across festoolsales.com a few weeks ago thru a craigslist listing.  I tried to locate them on the Festool site and failed the first time.  I later found them there.

They are part of a company that also does rentals.  So if you are in the Atlanta area and need a Planex for a project as an example, you have the ability to rent one from them.
