A history of Cabela's 10% off sales...
 
I had this in another thread, but figured I'd throw it up here in case peeps wanted to try "planning" for the next sale.

Looking back, the 10% sales line up pretty well. The real question is will any of the ammo you want be on sale at the same time.. and will AJ still be at a decent cashback %.

Like they say with the stock market, though... past performance does not guarantee future results. Especially with the merger now complete.

Great info, thanks. Hopefully if they keep the pattern we should expect a general 10% coupon in a few weeks, though people with the Visa card get those special deals every now and then also.

lapua 09-26-2017 11:38 PM

Thanks, tagged. Hoping for another 10% in Sep.

aspire727 09-27-2017 2:07 AM

Looks like you were almost spot on. 10% off and free shipping for Card Members...

AnakinFoxe 09-27-2017 8:35 AM

Good research man!

Syntax Error 09-29-2017 9:31 AM

Veteran's Day 2016 was November 11th, and Veteran's Day 2017 is November 11th, so did you mean November 12th for the next 10% coupon?

Thanks for catching that. I meant Columbus Day.

I was talking about Veteran's Day at work, while typing, so it was just a brain-fart.

Lets hope the merger wont kill a good thing....

Let's hope the next 10% coupon is October 10th. You were spot-on with the September 27th prediction.

Well, this was the Calguns thread on last year's sale:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...ght=cabela%27s - "10% off + Free Shipping on orders of $99 and up"

Of course past performance does not guarantee any future performance...

dennis9288 10-04-2017 3:57 PM

This is great. Thanks for the info.

If they tie a discount to Cabela's Club Visa holders only, it won't be of any use to me :(

You can apply for a card online and, guys said here they qualified for the discount on the same day if you don't close the browser window.

Whether to apply for the card or not, your call. I'm also reluctant to have too many revolving credit lines.

I found out I was affected by Equifax giving out my info to the Hackers so I have everything locked down. Don't really want to deal with the hassle and pay possible fees to do a temporary unlock in order to apply for a Club Visa.

Nice to see Cabelas advertising on the baseball playoff games today. No sales announced, but good to see BP is spending money on their Cabelas division. I sort of think they might later on be trying to make a big splash later in the holiday buying sale season more than usual, just to rev up Cabelas as a brand name to all of America.

I was watching football on ESPN I think it was and was very surprised to see Cabela's add during one of the breaks. I don't think I've ever seen a C's add on TV before. This was last weekend or the weekend before that.

imjustaguy 10-08-2017 9:17 AM

I wanted to bump this thread as the next projected 10% off deal will be this Tuesday.

goshishi 10-09-2017 3:03 AM

wow, pretty spot on!

acepilot55, could you put the firearms exception in your post?

Hope todays 10% does not replace early november. :)

Hope not. Because by early November, we should have already got our BJs . . . or cards from BJ's.

Some will. Maybe some won't. :oji: :eek:

Let's hope not. I also hope BJ's remembered to enter these numbers into C's system before they mailed them out, or whatever they do so they are GTG. :)

More data points to add, please acepilot55.

November 2, 2016: 10% off + free shipping for $50+ - http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1249507
November 11, 2016: 10% off + free shipping for $99+ Club members only - http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1252739

Seems from the threads that both sales covered ammo, but no one mentioned firearms.

BTW, anyone notice there are subtle differences on Cabela's website when ordering ammo? Clicking a box, something about being 18 years old or older? Hope this is not an indication of Bass Pro marketing team taking over.

Also, next time you make a purchase and go to "order history", try to find the UPS tracking number. They stopped listing it. Now you have to depend on getting your ship email in a timely manner. I received my ship email with the tracking number the morning after I received my package. I had no idea it was being delivered. If it weren't for my "watch dog", the package would have been on my porch all night till I went for my morning newpaper. If it was still there I mean. :facepalm:

imjustaguy 10-28-2017 8:09 AM

Yeah, they removed both the order status column from the order history list as well as the shipping tracking. Super annoyed with both of those changes.

holt7153 10-28-2017 8:18 AM

I just ordered a scope from them and on my shipping notice it said it required a signature. No mention of this at all when I ordered it or I would have had it shipped to my work address instead.

As I've said, I've chattedd with those bimbos at CS for three days. It's not on their screen so it never was. :chris: :chris: :chris:

I still remember when I used them to change the address of an order I made a few years ago. That was when many items were available but not on their rimfire screen.

They said they couldn't do it as it wasn't available. Even though I placed an order I said. They ended up canceling my even though I didn't tell them to. :chris: :chris:

Actually it worked out well, as I went back and reordered it with the correct address. :)

Beware folks, the changes are coming. Tax next?? :chris:

If you have a UPS account, you can look up what packages are coming to your house. I think USPS also has a similar feature.

Yes, I'll have to check that out. At one time I use to receive emails from UPS about upcoming deliveries, but I haven't in quite a while now.

I'm confused. both of those threads look like they're from Oct, 2016. Not Nov.

Did November 3 come and go without a 10% coupon? Hopefully we see something good for either Black Friday or the immediate week after heading into December.

ENVYGREEN 11-17-2017 9:20 AM

it was one day only on the 30th or so

There was a 10-25% off employee pricing event on Nov 3-5 in the stores, followed by a 5-10% off veterans/first responders sale Nov 9-12. Both included firearms.
