Pay By Check

Yes, credit cards are convenient. And the frequent flyer miles or the 1% cash discount is a tantalizing reason to use your card to pay for your generator*.

But most shoppers don't realize merchants already increase their prices by at least 2% in order to cover the credit card fees.

So instead of giving 2% of the sale to the credit card companies, some creative merchants, such as, are actually passing the savings on to the consumer if they choose to pay by check.

The discount can really add up, especially on larger purchases like standby generators. For example, you can save between $20-$200 on your purchase by simply deciding to mail a check.

How does it work?

Follow these three easy steps and you will be on your way to saving money:

1. Place your order online for a generator more than $1,000.
2. Choose "Pay-by-Check" as a payment option.
3. Confirm and Complete your order.
4. Mail your check to:
