Guitar Center 47th Anniversary Kickoff
« on: August 03, 2011, 09:20:14 PM »
I was initially excited when I received the $47 off coupon from Guitar Center via email yesterday. It was to be useable on items over $347. That is...until I read the excluded manufactures via the exclusion link in the fine print!! I wrote them and told them what a stupid promotion this was...virtually worthless.

im picturing that scene in the jerk where navin johnson explains to the guy what he' can win if he fools the guesser.  something like, "everything below the cupie dolls, but above the teddy bears, between the pencil erasers and the sunglasses, but not including the chiclets, pretty much anything in this 2 inch space right here"

A guy I know on another forum said if you really press them, they will give you the coupon even on the non-included items. He said a GC employee told him they do that to keep certain manufacturers happy but GC will usually deal with you. They just don't announce it. FWIW.

Most of their promotions are like that, but seldom do their staff ever follow them.  Buy whatever you want, they'll allow it.
