|Cabelas||Cabelas is extending its employee exclusive discounts to the Veterans on Veterans day. Its not clear of how much dsicounts for individual items are.
You can expect following discounts :
"Offers their employee discount to all veterans, active-duty military and reserves, law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel November 11-12. Discounts vary from 5% to 50%, depending on the item."
From Cabela forums the other employee discount details.
"Much depends on the item you are purchasing. I used that same discount and found I recieved 20% off on smokeless powder, 10% on primers, 30% off on Cabela's branded clothing, 10% on one piece of clothing not labeled Cabela's and same for snowshoes, 15% on scope caps, and 10% on guns, new or used. Sale priced items do not get a discount so one may be better off with the sale price rather than the employee discount as that is taken from the regular price.
I ended up buying powder, primers, and scope caps usingthe discount but passed on a gun as that was the same "best price" they quoted me the last time I was in. I'll wait until the next $100 or $150 off purchase promotion before I see about the gun again. Then the best price with discount would be in keeping with the value of the gun."
|DollarGeneral||10% both in-store and online. No Coupon required for in-store discounts. For online 10 percent off their purchase Nov. 11 through Nov. 13 using the code VETERANSDAY at checkout.
