Updated Commercial Program Promises Growth

As announced in August, we’ve made several exciting updates to the Commercial Program. Some of your commercial accounts may notice changes once the new year begins, so here’s a quick review of the new program.

Free Shipping
Commercial accounts receive free shipping for orders totaling $350 ($450 Can.) or more. If the order total is less than $350 ($450 Can.), a flat shipping rate of $11.99 ($13.99 Can.) will apply. Lift-gate fees and Canadian interline fees still apply, even when meeting the $350 ($450) threshold.

Simplified Discounts
We’ve also simplified the discount process and made it easier for accounts to receive higher discounts faster. Accounts receive a locked-in discount for the entire year.

At the beginning of each year, an account’s discount is locked-in based on its purchases over the previous 12 months. Accounts that purchase enough to qualify for a discount are granted that discount immediately, and continue receiving that discount for the remainder of the year.

U.S. Discount Levels
Spend Level                 Discount
$5,000 - $9,999.99         5%
$10,000 or more            10%

Canada Discount Levels
Spend Level                 Discount
$6,000 - $11,999.99       5%
$12,000 or more            10%

In addition, new accounts will receive an annualized rate for purchases so they can earn their discounts at the end of the year regardless of when they registered. Our goal is to help your accounts earn a discount as soon as possible and make it easier for them to plan their spending.

To spread the word about these updates, we’ve increased communication to commercial accounts. We mail a letter at the beginning of the year that notifies accounts of their discount level. To ensure you’re in the loop, we’ve enhanced the reports in the Dealer Zone ( to provide a better understanding of how your commercial accounts are performing and the discount they’ve earned. Find this information in the Active Personal Customers section of your Enhanced Reports. Simply click the CA section to view your accounts.
