    I posted this same exact thing during their sale last month. It happens with every sale. These manufacturers do not allow discounts from any retailer. It would make more sense to list the brands that will honor the discount. The list would be shorter.
  4. Despite the many exclusions, they generally will apply the discount to any item.

    on top of the holiday coupon they sent me a 20% off my next purchase till 12-29 from buying a jazz bass there last month....that coupon didnt work either.

    You have to actually call them and talk to a customer service rep.

    Did you speak with a person? They'll usually give it to you if you call and ask nicely.

    Also, almost every other retailer will give it to you if GC won't. Sweetwater will not only match the coupon, but they'll beat the price too.

    You just bought it today online? Call them up right now and ask them to give you the discount on an order you placed earlier today.

    They can sell the items for whatever they want to, the catch is the price that they can advertise the products of certain (most) manufacturers for.

    Rather than condemn the practice of listing exclusions in these ads, I think we should celebrate the MAP agreements. If it weren’t for MAP agreements the few remaining independent MI gear retailers still in business would be completely exterminated.
    The big box retailers could easily mass advertise brand items for a lower price than the small retailer can buy the gear for from the manufacturers/distributors at wholesale; and even at those prices the big boxes would still be generating a profit.

    Bye bye Mom and Pop, and with them for the most part bye bye personalized, knowledgeable and professional service. :atoz:

    IMO that would be a sad day indeed…

    I called GC customer service and got the $200.00 off on an Ibanez 1205e. Picked it up from my local GC Friday night! Call, you won't be sorry!

    They gave me $50 off a $600 cab.....paid for the tax anyway so I guess I cant complain now....even though it was less then the coupon.
