Invite only, as the paper in the mail says, but who else is going?

In Buda from 8pm-11pm.



If I go, it'll be after work and I'll likely be there for just an hour.

Supposed to be one in Allen soon. Haven't received my invite yet.



It's a closed store event where card members are offered employee prices on various merchandise. REI does a similar event.
Sell crazy someplace else, we're all stocked up here!

I got my invite for the Ft Worth store. It is on November 24. I usually go if I don't have anything else's to do. It is usually a decent free meal.

Isn't the Buda store on 11/27? That's what my invite says.

I went to the event last year. I can't make the Friday showing, but I might be able to make the Sunday
event. I'm scheduled to work both days. Decent food and live music were present at last year's event.
The "employee discount" ranges from 5% to 20% depending on what you're buying, according to one
employee I asked last year.

I was thinking it was Friday 11/22 and Sunday 11/24. I can't check my invite
right now because it is 220 miles away from me.

Pretty much what I heard when going to the contractor's night pre-opening at the Allen store. The bigger discounts are on the Cabela's branded merchandise. So it wasn't that great, but at least for the contractor's night the manufacturer's reps were there and had some other discounts up their sleeves.

Check carefully because it says the event day and then some other info on those days...

I don't have it in front of me, but the event itself wasn't the big days mentioned. I looked twice.

No, the one last year was a disappointment. The main things I want to buy won't have any real discount. Esp stuff in the gun section. They did have some decent discounts on Cabela's brand clothing, but I'm not a big camo guy and most of it was too heavy for South Texas.

I must not have spent enough money there this year. I've gotten invites in the past but have never went.

Is there a discount on guns? I got the invite for the Ft Worth location, but don't know if it's worthwhile.

You don't want any part of me right now, I'm full of bitterness, Scotch, and impure thoughts!!!!

No. Pretty much nothing in the gun dept. As mentioned above it's mostly clothes and such. Esp Cabela's own label stuff. Some minor savings in areas such as camping and ATV accessories.

Thanks--looks like I'm gonna file this one under the "do not care" portion of sales....hopefully Academy will have something worthwhile for black friday.
