    *Coupon Codes

    NFI has a new procedure for determining member pricing. Previously, there were 3 price choices when you select items from the website: HPBA Member price (30% discount), NFI or CSIA Certified price (20% discount) and Retail price. Moving forward only the Retail price will be shown and you will have a coupon code to enter if you are an HPBA Member or NFI/ CSIA Certified.

    Once you enter the code during checkout the price will automatically be adjusted to the same price it has been.

     HPBA Members can get their code from OHPBA. Call 503-585-8254.  NFI Certified Technicians can get their code from NFI. Please contact NFI if you have any questions at info@hpbef.org
