Basically the equivalent of a 10% off coupon, and pays for itself pretty easily when you are doing hefty shopping. Details are on the Performance website. Otherwise, I've not seen a coupon.

I agree with JT about Team Performance. The membership will easily pay for itself. Although Performance doesn't always have the lowest prices at any given moment, they frequently have sales and very good buys on clothes, components, tires, etc. Performance also has the best return/exchange policy of any store I have dealt with. I buy a lot of cycling stuff from them for that reason -- I always know I can return something if it doesn't fit or work out. This is important with cycling gear because you generally don't know if something (eg, a saddle or shoes) will fit you right until you try it a few times.

If you shop around you can get better pricing than Performance, even with the 10% team discount.
If you are shopping Shimano go to - this will also give you links to many other on line retailers.
Also, as you say you are a newby - you might want to consider the cost of installation and good will from the LBS. It might make sense to get some pricing there before buying on line and building a relationship with the shop rather than with a web site.

Get a membership with performance for $20. Then they'll send you $10 coupons for every $100 you spend. They'll even let you do it right at the store when you make your first purchase. Not sure exactly how it works online. I'm assuming it's pretty similar.
