Default Re: Cabelas is out to get us!

I'm a little envious. The "Bargain" Cave at the Cabelas closest to me has too much yard sale quality stuff at only 30% off prices. Some of it I am amazed that management would even offer for sale...dirty, broken, missing key parts, etc., which would be okay if it was offered at a bargain price. I did find a nice rod tube for about $8 one time though.

I'm saving a couple hundred bucks a year spending my Cabela's points. Should be able to retire soon if I continue to save so much money on fishin stuff.

Flytying material suppliers are my weakness lately Jay.

Last year I find whiting Hebert hen saddles I didn't need on sale for $4. I bought 8! :-)

I give thanks to God every day that there is not a Cabelas in my town. Their gun room with all those beautiful SxS shotguns just begging to be taken home? Visa would own my house.:-)

I'm not a hunter, or even a fan of owning guns, but the gun room has some sweet shot guns for sure

I have a Cabela's, BassPro, and two independent fly shops within 20 minutes of home. It's not good for bank account, but I rack up a lot of rewards and Amex points!

Another trick is to put items you want to buy form Cabelas in your shopping cart (make sure you have an account set up) Go all the way through the check out EXCEPT dont pay just close the page. Generally with in a week I start getting coupons in my email for additional discounts. I bought a couple frly rods and a bunch of other stuff like that. I was getting 20-25% off coupons.
I do it with the websites and most of the time I end up getting a discount.
BTW love the bargain cave! We are such suckers for that ****

I love it...turning all that consumer tracking online around and using it for your own advantage. Simply brilliant.

I hope that works because I have a roll of leader, a headlamp and a redington CT all lined up at just the hundred buck point to get free shipping. We'll see if I get a better offer.

PS I don't feel the slightest bit of guilt doing it either as I have spent, welI I prefer not to think on how much I've spent there.:-) If I get a few bucks back I'll thank them.
