Gander Mtn. Low Price Guarantee

20 posts in this topic

I saw a reel I've been meaning to buy on an internet sale from one of Gander's big competitors. Would they honor their low price guarantee with this, or is it only print ads? Thanks....

Most places wont price match Internet offers. Most wont even match there own price if its lower on the net.

I beg to differ!!! This last winter I was in the market for 2 ATV covers. The place I found them and the price was right, so I ordered. "Item not available" for like 45 days. I copied the internet page and took it to Gander, Came home with the IDENTICAL item that was in the catalog! AND, that was with the salesmans' supervisors blessing!!It was a $50 saving!! If you're in "doubt", I can show you the ad and the receipt. Go ahead, copy the internet ad and take it in. The worst that can happen is one may say "no", go back after that shift ends and your "luck" may change. Phred52

Scheels also told me they would match internet prices. I did not actually try it though to see if they would follow through with the offer.

Print off the add and bring it in. They should match it.

Cabelas and Sportsmans Warehouse price matched trail cameras from the internet. I don't see why GM wouldn't price match from online.

Bass Pro will match their own internet prices at their retail stores. I did it just yesterday. I'm not sure if they'll match competitors internet prices. It's worth a try, what do I have to lose? Cabelas just opened a new store here last Friday, so their prices on the net would be easiest to justify matching by Bass Pro.

Cabelas just matched a Reeds internet price for me on a new reel. I printed off the add & brought it in; they just called Reeds to confirm the item was in stock & matched it no problem.

Just 2 weeks ago Gander Mt. EP priced matched a lowrance x135 for me on an internet only sale from cabela's, saved me a $100 bucks. The cashier explained to me that this was a new thing, that they never used to do this in the past but now they do, something about new management. Needless to say I was very impressed with GM. smile.gif

Since when did Cabelas start to price match?

Sutty,

I have not been to the Bass Pro in Branson as I understand it is about 40,000 square feet.

I know the one in Springfield is larger than that, I just found that it is 310,000 square feet. I've been there, it's HUGE. It really is like nothing else! It also has a catalog outlet store next to it.The store in St. Charles, MO (closest Bass Pro to me)is 72,000 square feet.

Cabelas just opened a 130,000 square foot store in Hazelwood, Mo which is even closer to me. It opened alst Friday (the 13th) I haven't been there yet.

Dang it I should have made the trip than. I new it was bigger but did not know it was that big. I thought is was kind of funny though that the aquarium in Bass Pro had trout not bass...

Sutty,

I'm sure that the aquarium had trout in it because of Lake Taneycomo. Lake Taneycomo is pretty much a trout fishery. Bass Pro's website says that the Branson is a tribute to the White River, Taneycomo, Bull Shoals, Table Rock etc. Sounds like they are keying in on the trout fisherman.

I was in the new Eden Prairie Gander Mtn store for their grand opening event. I have to say that I was very disapointed in the store. I live very close to the Lakeville store so maybe I'm spoiled, but their selection was so limited on so many items!

I just got back from GM during my lunch hour and was looking for a baitcasting reel and all I can say is "what selection". Sorry but I just have to say it. Normally I don't like to criticize about a business but it was not looking good. They seem very competative on the clothing but when it comes to reels, lures, and terminal tackle they fall a little short. Well look at it this way there's always room for growth.

Gander matched the price on my Aqua view from a Cabelas internet ad. I told them about the ad and they looked it up on the computer right at the customer service desk.

It would seem that price matching has relaxed quite a bit. It did not work for me but that was over a year ago and have not tried since so I will try again sometime.

Maybe with all the competition around now the stores were kinda forced to start being a little more relaxed on this.

I do know that when I receive sales offers from cabelas in my email some are for Internet only and some are in store only and some are for both. Go figure.

Gander in Maple Grove this spring honored the sales price on Rapalas from Fleet Farm and yesterday I brought in the sales flyer from Joe's that I printed off the internet to Cabela's in Rogers and they matched the price on the Berkley crank baits. One thing that I really like about Gander is their return policy on their products. I have two of their guide series rods that have broken while fall trolling on Mille Lacs...I no longer had the receipts for either rod, but they took them back and replaced them at no charge. This kind of customer service certainly makes me want to continue to shop there. Now if they only would restock their fishing supplies after the first two weeks of the season, but that's a whole nother story!!!

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
