    Differences I've noticed: Almost all are bad.

    1. Bass pro logos all over the Cabelas Catalog. Almost to the point of tin foil hat wearing conspiracy. We get it, you paid a lot for Cabelas..... show some respect for their name and family tradition.

    2. Call center: Terrible now, used to be a sweet ole gal in Nebraska would answer the phone and be super helpful and nice. Now its a recording prompt and button maze to get a real person..... no longer in Nebraska. Very sad.

    3. Products not in stock, deteriorating warranty life, difficulty with exchanges moreso than in past.

    4. Credit Card service calls now much more difficult for Club Card holders. Although I do like the Capital One statements better.

    5. One good thing now is that when someone gets me a Bass Pro Gift card by mistake, I can switch it to a Cabelas one.



    Feel free to chime in. If this thread gets deleted, we will all have to buy some Tin Hats..... probably from Bass pro though.

    I just redeemed some points to obtain a pair of Danner boots through Cabela's. Did not notice any shifts in the buying experience. Will take the note.

    Fine with me. Will be purchasing EVERYTHING from Kittles, Sportsman's Warehouse, Guns and Gear, and/or any other local sporting good store (except Dicks) from here on out. We need to keep those guys in business since we no longer can buy ammo online and if they go under we are going to have serious issues.
