Saw the new ad:

Looks like the new $399 XD offer is for the "full kit" with the holster, mag pouch, loader, etc..

Last week it was for just the Essentials package..

If so I have to ask.. what the heck? I would be a little ticked if I jumped on this three days ago only to have a better deal the very next week.

Oh wait.. I did jump on last week's deal.

Am I missing something here?

I bought an XD9 on tuesday. I saw the new ad and called my local store an hour ago.

Since I haven't DROS'd they said switching to the full kit would be no problem! :)

Edit: I went on Sat ( the day I have off work) to Turners and they told me they where all out and could not switch to the full gear pack. Oh well.

If you have DROS'd we have a fix for that, too. But you'll have to move fast since this new deal is a limited, and surprise deal from Springfield that is limited in number of guns.

Contact the guys at your store and they'll get you taken care of. Remember that the free mags/mag pouch deal from Springfield applies to all XD's so no one gets left out.

DavidR310- thanks for helping us spread the news- we appreciate it.

Folks, Springfield gave us a limited, (but unexpected) offer on a few guns.

If you bought an XD Essential and you want to swap it into the standard package at the same price, we can help you out. Keep in mind that supplies are limited, so move fast and get with the staff where you bought your gun.

Also, keep in mind that if you take advantage of the Springfield update, either package will net you 3 more mags and a mag pouch.

Sorry for the confusion, this all came together too fast to sort out the overlapping offers on back-to-back ads.

No, you are definitely IN. Contact the store and if you want to switch, they'll take care of you.

Contact Carol or one of her asst. managers at Rancho and she'll walk you through it. You don't need to re-do anything; we'll handle the rest.

I went by the Orange store and they switched me over NO PROBLEM.. it was easy since I hadn't started DROS..

As a bonus they had the regular XD kits in stock so I could start my 10-day tonight rather than waiting to get more Essentials in stock..

The poor employees had genuine "WTF" expressions when I told them.. lol.. very nice about it though.

I went by Turners in Orange and since I didn't have a serial number.. and hadn't started DROS they were more than happy to move me to the new deal.

As a bonus I was waiting for more stock of the Essentials to come in.. but they had the regular XD kits in stock so my 10-day wait started today rather in a week or so.

WIN/WIN

I felt bad for the employees.. they had no idea until I told them and had a real "WTF was corporate thinking!!" look on thier faces.. they are now bracing for the slew of phone calls starting tomorrow.

In my case they provided great CS.. so "thumbs up" to Turners!

Something went out to our crews this evening so they are up to speed; this came together so fast it just caught our purchasing dept a bit off-guard.

I went in tonight at 7:45.. at first they didn't believe me but then they went online and confirmed when they opened the packet they get with all the little yellow sale signs..

Very nice about it, but they know the phones will be a ringin..

Look at it this way.. it's an opportunity to provide great service.. I know I'm a happy camper.

Maybe stop your crying that you got a great deal and that there was, later, another great deal? No doubt that a great deal is better than a good deal, but you're ahead either way...?

Just wanted to mention that I took advantage of this offer first thing this morning at the Kearny Mesa location and I couldn't be happier with how smooth it went. Thanks for making it so easy.

Same with the Rancho Cucamonga store. Dissappointing they sold out so fast. I wish they would have said Limited Quantities. I may not have waited a day!

I went on Sat ( the day I have off work) to Turners and they told me they where all out and could not switch to the full gear pack. I even called on Thursday ahead of time. I guess they didn't hold it for me. Oh well.

Is Turners out of the XD deal that is in this weeks ad? I wasn't/won't be able to get to Turners until today but if they are out of them what is the point of making a special trip.
Am I correct in assuming that they source all their stuff from 1 warehouse so if they are out at one store they will be out at all of them?
Any help would be appreciated.
