They are having their big spring fishing classic coming in the next couple of weeks. I think it starts on the 29th and goes for like 3 weekends row. I think the reel trade in is 1st or 2nd weekend in March. Thats usually when i go and load up every year. They have their best deals of the year during this sale. Make sure you get there early cause the good stuff gets gone quick! It gets worse than wally world in there.
Any reel will do! Last year, i seen some guys turn in reels that didnt even work! When you turn in your reel, they will give you a discount certificate to use when you buy a new reel. The amount of the discount depends on the price of the reel you buy. You can get some great deals this way because most of the reels they have are on sale at this time anyways. Last year i bought one of their Extreme baitcast reels. They retail for around $80. I got to use my trade in discount plus the sale price so i ended up getting the Extreme reel for $45 i think. Cant beat that! If you are wanting one of those high dollar $200 or $300 reels the discount would be even more. I've heard of people going to walmart and buying a $10 el cheapo reel to take to BPS and trade in to get the discount.
So it doesn't matter how new or old the reels your trading are or anything? Does the reel you trade in effect how much discount you get, or just what new reel your buying? And can you do this for multiple reels? Like bring in three old reels, and get the discount on 3 new reels?
The reels are supposed to be in good "working" condition. They donate these reels to children I think, I'll post back when I find the link.
The discount varies based on the price of the new reel. From $5 and up. The higher the new reel, the better the discount.
I'll go look for that link.
Thanks Momma ,have been on there,just wondering if there were any in store deals.Sometimes they have some in store deals.
Thanks, I've got a few that I should be able to take in. Can you just get this discount on one reel each visit, or can you do, say....3 used reels for 3 new reels?
