MUDMAN,

How did you do that? Their policy is to double the difference up to $50.00.

Nice deal.

Gander will double the difference in a competitors price (up to $50). So in the case above, the difference in price was well over $50 ($349 @ gander vs. $299 @ cabelas). So what they do is match the low price and pay you double the difference. In this case, matched cabelas at $299, then since the difference was greater than $50 they doubled the difference of $50 to a total additional discount to $100 off, bringing the final sale to $199.

Man you got a steal! Too bad gander doesn't recognize galyans prices right now! I talked to a sales rep at Gander over the weekend and they said they don't match clearance or closeout priced items (ie Galyans). Too bad, because Galyans had a chronograph baitcaster on clearance for $100 (plus additional 20% off) and Gander was on sale for $150. Could've picked up the reel for basically free! Oh well. The reel was left handed anyway... frown.gif

I am confused on the dicount given above. Here is Ganders policy:

Our promise to you is low prices on every item we sell every day. If you should find a lower price on an identical in-stock item at a local competitor, let us know about it and we will match that price and give you that difference again up to $50. IT'S OUR GANDER GUARANTEE! *Discount Double limited to actual difference in price plus up to $50 over and above price match.

Now with a fish house that is $350, they would match the $299, and then since the difference between Gander and the competitor was $50, they would give you another $50. So basically they match teh price and give you the difference.....so how did it come to a $199 total?

Should it not have been $250?

The deal I got was someone had the Otter houses on sale for 10% off. Gander said they would match that and give me the difference.....So the house was $450....they matched the 10% which brought it to $405, and then gave another 10% which brought it to roughly $365. The guy just actually gave me a strait 20% though..so I got a few more $ off..

Maybe it's that sunflower heater getting to my head...but maybe you got a REALLy good deal???

Hey mudman,

I have been checking the cablea's website and they don't have the fish trap guide listed...so how did you know/prove that they had it for $299? This sounds like an awesome deal and i would really like to pick one up for that price too...

Nope, Gander Mountain does have a double the difference policy. When I was working at the Duluth, Gander MT. We made darn sure that the product in the store matched the ad prices for the week from the competitors in the area. Otherwise had we not, double the difference on an item up to $50. Of course that only worked for the customer and not the workers...bummer wink.gif

So the deal that the Gander gave you for giving you 10% and then bringing down another 10% wasn't a true interpretation of their policy. What they should have done is matched the price of the competitor's cost on the product and then given you double the difference. They give you a double up to $50, so the most a guy could get off would be $100.

Ex. If say....Cabela's had a reel for $30 and Gander had the same reel for $40. They would bring the price to $30 and double the difference. In this case you would pay $10 ($10 x 2)= $20 and then $30-$20= $10 your cost! Pretty sweet deal huh?

Gander had line for $1.99 and Fleet was selling it for $1.49. Gander called over to Fleet to check the price and they brought the price down to $1.49 and doubled the difference (.50 x 2= $1.00). So I got a packs of mono for .49/.50 cents!

Not a great steal like the fish house, but it all adds up---I just bought more lures.

I'm pretty sure I gave you good examples....maybe I need to get away from that sunflower heater too ooo.gif Or maybe I need to get closer grin.gif

Well unfortunately it seems like you got the only great deal there mudman...I tried going to the Forest Lake Gander today and doing your deal...It didn't work because they said it doesn't count on items that are on sale, and the 299.99 price from Cabela's is a sale...so they would give it to me for that, but no less...

Well, on the reciept I have it says "Find a lower price on a identicle instock item at a local competitor, we'll match it and take that difference off again, up to $50." I am still thinking I should have gotten more off if it was the double the difference deal. It's still within 90 days so I should be able to talk to them I am assuming... who knows..

Also...the Otter I bought was one sale...and they price matched it plus the additional. I told them it was on sale for 10% off and I got it.... That was the Fridely store.

Well 5 Gander Mountains later I finally found one that was willing to give me the deal, the bloomington store gave me their price down to Cabelas (332-299) plus then took 33 dollars off of the 299 and then an additional 5% because of their sale, after tax I got a new guide for $270...not quite the deal mudman got, but I am content with it...

      My prediction is that Pike Bay will open by May,4 and Big Bay will open by May, 12! Cliff
    • guideman
      It is much warmer now and after watching 30 ice outs on Vermilion, I think Pike bay will be ice free in about a week and Big bay typically follows about 10 days later.  Warm weather and wind can melt ice faster that you can believe. There might still be some ice floating around by the opener however I plan on going fishing like always. "Ace"  
    • guideman
      I know from living on Pike pay for 27 years that this will be one of the latest, if not the latest start dates that I have seen. Good news my neighbors boat lift broke though the ice today and that typically mean that Pike bay will be open within a week. ;) "Ace" ;)

      No wake is in effect currently and will be for the weekend opener.  Spread the word.

      I wouldn't read too much into the open water in Oak Narrows. There's been open water there for more than a month. There's clearly forces other than air temps or sunshine at work there. With that said, considering the data shared by delcecchi, and the current 15-day forecast I am not without hope.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Enforcement Division has promoted four officers – Chelsie Leuthardt, Brandon McGaw, Jen Mueller and Brett Oberg – to the position of regional training officer. They’ve been in their new positions since April 18.  The Enforcement Division’s six regional training officers are responsible for training the state’s conservation officers on topics such as defensive tactics, firearms and use of force. In addition, they train and work closely with the 6,000 volunteers who are integral to delivering the division’s education and safety training program. (The largest number of volunteers, about 4,000, are firearms safety instructors.) Regional training officers also spend a portion of their time performing the traditional field duties of a conservation officer. Following are brief bios of the newly promoted officers: Chelsie Leuthardt has been a conservation officer for four years and most recently patrolled the White Bear Lake area. “I’ve made strong connections with many instructor groups and look forward to working with them more closely,” said Leuthardt, whose area includes the southeastern part of the state. “I enjoy working with our user groups and helping to form how we train our next generations of outdoor enthusiasts.” Brandon McGaw has been a conservation officer since 2007. For most of that time, he’s been stationed in the Mora area. He’s also been a Conservation Officer Academy instructor, field training officer, firearms instructor and use of force instructor. “I really love teaching,” said McGaw, whose area includes 10 counties north of the metro. “I enjoy connecting with the students as well as the older adults who take safety training courses.” Jen Mueller began her career as a conservation officer in the Hutchinson-West station in 2012. Mueller, who was promoted after serving as an acting regional training officer, said she learned quickly that participating in the Enforcement Division’s youth safety programs was one of her favorite parts of the job. “I’m amazed by our volunteer instructor groups and how passionate they are about what they’re teaching,” said Mueller, whose area includes the southwestern part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching our officers and helping them become better equipped to deal with situations they may face in the field.” Brett Oberg has been a conservation officer for 13 years and spent much of that time in the Hutchinson-East station. He’s also been an armorer, field training officer and use of force instructor. “I really enjoy training others and seeing youth get excited about the outdoors, especially firearms and hunting,” said Oberg, whose area includes the south metro and south-central part of the state. “I also enjoy teaching at the Conservation Officer Academy and helping the new recruits become conservation officers.” The four officers join Regional Training Officer Mike Lee, who covers the northeastern part of the state, and Acting Regional Training Officer Greg Oldakowski, who is responsible for the northwestern part of the state. Bruce Lawrence is the Enforcement Division’s statewide recreational vehicle coordinator. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
