Just thought that I would let you know about Cabela's discounts. For the month of May, every Tuesday they are giving a 10% discount on everything that you purchase. If you are a veteran you will get an additional 5% discount on everything EXCEPT guns and ammunition.

I think this is only valid if you use the cabela's credit card. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
And also I’m guessing only “in-store purchases” not online.
Do have to use your card. I happened in there Tuesday. This discount does apply to ammo but not firearms or anything out of the bargain cave. They also usually give first responders 10% off everything (except firearms) everyday. The little gal checking me out was having enough trouble I didn't pursue the extra discount.
Yes, you have to have a Cabela's credit card. I have a black card. It's suppose to be in-store purchases only BUT, they didn't have the Swarovski Z5 3.5-18x44-P-L BRH that I was wanting to purchase. So, I called the main office and they had it in stock and shipped it to the Thornton, CO store and I had it the next day. I paid for it at the main store but the Thornton store gave me my VA 5% discount. I purchased the same Z5 last year and put it on my .308 and this new one I put on my 7MM Rem Magnum. I had trouble entering the warranty information and they helped me enter both of my scopes, my model 65 20-60 angle spotting scope and my older 8x30 binoculars. They went above and beyond with their service to help me.
Cabelas service went down the pooper here after BP bought them. returns/exchanges are attempted to be made as large a hassle as possible, suddenly they can't find my discount, employees no longer have discounts for working there...prob not getting any better.

All of that crap started not too long after they went public and it will probably get worse now with the BP buyout!
I laugh at Cabelas. You have to have a 30% off sale for it to match everyone else's regular prices here in Utah. Other than Ammo sales I really don't buy all that much from them. Prices are better just about anywhere else. I was hoping that Bass Pro would straighten them out and make them more competitive but not so or at least not yet.
Cabela's used to mail out $20 off $150+ purchase codes all the time. This seems to have completely stopped. I received a Cabela's gift certificate for Christmas and have been waiting to use it until I find a coupon. Between Cabela's high prices and the fact that I don't really need anything they have, I'll just keep waiting.

I miss those $20 off $150 cards. I used to the think they were a pain when they kept sending but they were nice. They did away with the employee pricing night for the black card holders as well. Always liked that.
