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!!!

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
