    Default Re: Orvis 25 off a 50 + spend

    Tried it on a Clearwater rod, didn't work.
    Mustn't be valid on stuff that's already on sale.

    That's the first thing I tried as well!
    Would have made it quite a bargain.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.

    It's only a bargain if you actually need it. The entire idea of sales and money off vouchers is to get you to buy stuff you don't need.

    Of course I don't need a Clearwater rod but if I wanted one it would indeed be a bargain.

    None of us needs any fishing tackle at all in the same way as I don't need any bargain golf clubs because I don't play golf. There a umpteen other hobbies we could all do instead, and buy the kit to do them with but there is no 'need' involved, only 'want'.

    So if it's all down to want, and if Orvis or anyone else wants to tempt me to buy something by lowering the price, then I'm all for it. It's still my choice.

    I'm sure though that retailers would much prefer sell to everything at full price without having to discount at all.

    Presumably in Orvis's case the offers are either to help shift stock and increase turnover, though at a reduced profit margin, or they want to induce new customers who otherwise might not become customers of theirs.
    Or maybe they are hoping for both of the above.

    Funnily enough.. I tried this... Added a reel and with that you get a free line... Code worked as there is a full price reel in there. So Rod reel and line at 197. 95

    Nice one.
    Suppose you could say you got the reel and line free.

    We all do it. Today there's a big fishing auction in Romsey, Hampshire, which is only a few miles from where I live. About 500 lots. A few things took my eye, including some Orvis stuff, in the online catalogue but I decided it was wiser not to go. Once you go to such things your chance of being hooked and landed is very high
