They're having a big gift-card promotion right now, and I'd like to share with you their disclaimer:
Some uninteresting rules about the Free e-Gift Card thing...
- It's just one free e-Gift Card per order. So if you order two $261 items you still only get one free $51 e-Gift Card.
- If you order an item and get the free e-Gift Card and then return the item but don't return the e-Gift Card, we'll deduct the amount of the e-Gift Card from your credit. Sorry to be so mean about it.
- Qualifying item value is after any other applicable discounts and before tax and shipping charges.
- I love crunchy Peanut Butter.
- The deal cannot be combined with other promos, is good for in-stock items only and cannot be applied to prior purchases.
- Excludes products from Patagonia,Yakima, Western Mountaineering, Baby Jogger, Merrell, VIO, Scarpa, Chaco, MontBell, and select skiing and snowboarding products.
- This deal is good through December 4th, 2011, so please snap to. Marmot ends 11/28.
From their e-mail confirmation for my order:
Way to go. You've won the best email receipt we've sent out all day. We recommend either printing this receipt and framing it in your foyer or using it as a screensaver. It would probably also be nice for you to forward it around to a couple friends and maybe even an enemy or two.I will most definitely shop at this website again when I need outdoor stuff. The slight snarkiness (this is just a very small sampling, the website is full of it) appeals to me in much the same way that Southwest Airlines flight attendants' patter does. Or the item-description writers at American Science Surplus. (If you're in or near Milwaukee, this store is a must-see. I'm so sorry my daughter doesn't live there any more. But Nashville is closer to the Middle of Nowhere than Milwaukee was.)
Do you like it when a company adds a bit of humor when they take care of business? Or do you prefer your communication to be more on the straight-and-narrow side?
