Minelab Discount For U.S. Military


Recommended Posts

Just a reminder. Minelab USA offers a 15% discount on any Minelab metal detector from the MAP (minimum advertised price) to U.S. active or honorably discharged members of the military. Proof of past or active service is required and must be verified by providing a copy of a DD 214 or Military ID to qualify. The discount applies only to a metal detector purchase - parts and accessories do not qualify. This discount is not available in conjunction with other special promotions or individual dealer concessions. 

With discount the $899 Equinox 800 is only $764.15. The Minelab GPZ 7000, normally $7999, ends up being $6799.15, a savings of $1199.85 :smile:

A little odd don’t you think that the companies that tout Made in America are not the ones offering the military discount? They need to get with the program with actions more than words.

Many factors, but for new product it is usually supply and demand.  Also, you must realize we do have dealer contracts we sign.  If we undercut the product pricing, then we could get canned.  Also we

I think there is a fine line when a true military discount is used for someone who is not military----- kinda feels like a slap in the face to me. It cheapens the discount  Minelab has graciously

This discount is when buying directly from Minelab or one of its dealers?

I've recently divorced and God know's where my darn DD214 is. I'll keep digging, but worst case scenerio, I'll get a copy from my department, they'll have one on file...

Never could find my DD214, but I located my DD256A, Honorable Discharge Certificate for picture frame display, anyhow Kellyco had no problem excepting it in lieu of my missing DD214...

Does anyone know if a VA card will work?  I'm about ready to pre-order an 800 (for Hubby).  The only thing I worry about is if I pre-pay for one then for some reason Dealer #1 doesn't get enough on the first shipment and I have to wait for mine.  Meanwhile, Dealer #2 gets a whole pallet-load of them, only I can't get one because Dealer #1 has my cash tied up.

I ordered mine from Kellyco and they were very flexible when it came to what information was needed for the veterans discount. I can't say they'll allow the VA card or not, but it's worth a try and it would surprise me if they refused to except it, but who knows. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful...

Gerry........ ive got to ask, i know its not likely the first batch wont sell for MAP..... but after that ..... if someone say im not military but would you discount me that 15% if i buy one...... would you?  With this being a ML discount youd be dealing with less discounts out of your pocket..... and now days, we all like to deal.  At this point Ammie im sure ML USA had a distribution plan.   So.... ordering now may not get you one for awhile.  Rumor has it Kelleyco has a 1000 on order.   I know its business, but wonder how ML and Kelleycos relationship is?  Ive got  one on order...... if i dont get one of the first..... that might not be a bad thing.   We'd still be in line, BUT would have more information for our specific area of hunting.   I didnt have to pay anything to get on the list....... that might not be a good thing lol.  I have Xcals and CTX and im not expecting to get over run by the EQ on the beach YET.

      Just letting everyone overseas in Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania,Canada and everywhere else outside of the states know that I got the shipping rates corrected  for The Nugget Shooter's Field Guide, and reduced. Even the rates for ordering in quantity is way less.

      Minelab has just applied for an Australian Design Patent for a "Tray".
      Anyone have any ideas what this would be?

      Sorry for the cross post in meet and greet.
      New to the forum, just wanted to say hello before I started to ask questions here haha. Several years ago I bought a junker metal detector to test out the hobby, it died a couple years later now I'm back.
      Wondering how good Kellyco customer service is. Ordered a new MD from them and after 10 days of patiently waiting, I was sent what Is obviously a used machine. I paid for a new one so I'm a bit irritated about it. It's Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow to call. I could have ordered one through Amazon, but thought I'd give them a try. Any issues with Kellyco before? Not looking to bad mouth anyone, just wondering if this is common business practice. They have been around a long time I see, so I guess I expected more from them.

      Got word recently, that both Tim Mallory and Mike Scott have lost their jobs at 1st Texas.  I think it was, maybe 2 years ago when Gene Scullion and others lost their jobs too.  That makes me wonder about Lupe, who is one of the workers at the main plant.
      I guess Covid has affected more than just a few businesses.

      An intrepid forum member passed this along. Interesting, as the name does not sound “recreational” to me, more like something for geologists or exploration companies?
      November 29, 2020 note: We know now this is related to the new GPX 6000 introduction.
