About a week ago, I got an e-mail from Bass Pro Shops offering a $10 discount on any $30 online purchase. Well they had Federal/American Eagle 9mm 124gr on sale for $10/box 50. I bought three and took the $10 discount. The made the ammo cost $6.67 box + tax.
I got an e-mail from them this morning that my order was ready for pick up.
I went to the store and picked it up.
While there, a young lady approached me and asked if I would be interested in becoming a "Club" member. Translation.. would you like to apply for a Bass Pro Shops Credit card.
I told her "no". She then said "You know, there's an immediate $20 reward on any purchase you make if you apply for, and are approved for the card." I asked "even if I get your card and never intend to use it, you'll give me an immediate $20 reward?"
"Yes" was her answer.
So, with no intention of ever using it, I applied. I was approved and got the paper work for the $20 reward.
I immediately went to the ammo shelves and picked up a box of 45ACP 230gr ammo that was on sale for $20.25. With tax, that made my purchase $21.67. I used the reward and got the box of ammo for $1.67.
Once I receive their card, it will go into the drawer with the other cards that gave me a great deal for opening the account and were never used again.
I just love when people want to give me things..
Oh, and I got a free "Bass Pro Shop Club" Baseball cap as well.
