I wonder if the 15% off is off the MAP (Min advertised price) which is the retail price as some call it. Now Minelab is letting the dealer advertise 15% off that price to the veterans, not a 15% off that Minelab will send you back like a rebate. To tell this is make the best deal with your dealer without telling that you are a veteran, then after you make the deal then mention that you get a 15% off as you are a veteran and see what they say.
I know Minelab will not let any dealer advertise their selling price as you notice they all say call for the best price in their advertising as you can sell for what they want, but they can advertise no less than the MAP price in any advertising to make it fair for all the dealers, so now with the 15% off for veterans has been OKed with Minelab to advertise this for the dealers they can figure this in on their selling price when making the deal.
This is the way I look at it anyway and can be very wrong too,

I personally would like to thank ML or the dealers. I spent 22 great years serving our country. Every time someone offers me a military discount im humbled.

U.S. Army Afghanistan combat vet here. My "discount" is the pride I have from my service. I'll pay the same price everyone else pays, thanks.

Thank you, sincerely, to all of you who served. Without folks who perform that thankless task, there would BE no "America..."

If the 15 percent comes off the dealers profit I would not press for greater discount. I want the dealer to also stay in business and make a little. The starting price of the 800 is low compared to my other detectors. If I pay mid 750 and get free shipping no tax i am happy:usaf::clapping:

I called my dealer that I’ve bought about 10 machines off of over the last 3-4 years and he said the list prices are the best prices he could do. Anyone else get same answer from their dealer?

To be expected. High demand & cant fill orders for a while.
Hopefully they dont pull a Sony on us. They never built as many high end sets as they could sell. Keeps inventory way down
& profits for the dealer & Sony good. Happens with houses & cars too, can sell above MSRP if a hot product.

The first buyers may be in a position to make $100 $200 quick profit by re-selling their machines if the pipeline doesn’t fill up fast.

I called minelab. Yes, you can get a15% veteran discount from minelab at your dealer on minelab's including the Equinox. I talked to Tracy and she said it would be fine for me to post this infomation.

“15% veteran discount from minelab at your dealer” what does that mean?

Is it 15% of...

The Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) or....
The Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) - or....
The actual price your dealer and you agree on?

And is the 15% deducted from what you pay the dealer or does Minelab send you the money?

Sadly, it seems like Minelab is very reluctant to explain anything in clear plain language.
