I know that Chowhound might not be the best place to post this, but I figured I'd give it a try. My husband and I are moving and renovating the kitchen in our new place (first time homebuyers so this is very exciting). He's an architect and we've heard lots of stories about the discounts he can get on certain appliances through their 'trade discount' or 'personal use' programs. Has anyone ever used these for their kitchen appliances, and if so, what kind of discounts did you get? This information is not readily available online and I'd love to get a rough sense of which companies offer this and how much the discount was, before I start sending him on wild goose chases calling all the reps for these companies.
