Dicks Warranty And Shimanos

Recommended Posts

Ok was looking for a crucial and my Dicks finally started carrying them.  I have been fussing on phone past 2 weeks with Dicks about the score point crap, I haven't got any the past 2 years. So today they sent me a ton of 10 buck certificates and a 20.00 off  100.00. So I can get one for about 70.00 Ok a bit confused on shimanos warranty. so the over counter says that for 5 year or life time I can take it back to Dicks and get a new one, right? but that is only for there error in rod breakage

 

Also the Dicks instore warranty, the way the manger explained is, that it cover idiot error(me) as well as any other thing that happens to it. As a shore fisherman I try but sometimes my stuff gets a tad banged up. IF you was me would you get he Dicks warranty aswell. She also explained that; say you break the rod 6 months in, you get a new one, you  still have 6 months left for that one.

sometimes its worth it...i just bought a motorola blue tooth headset from best buy and their warranty covers everything...dude said it doesnt matter if i break it on purpose and take it back they will give me a new one..also if they dont have the model that i bought they will give me the next newer one as replacement

 

but check with dicks to make sure it covers like that just make sure fully what all it covers due to your error before hand

Read the bottom of those dicks score card coupons. They say you can't use them in conjunction with any other coupon or offer. They got me when I tried to do the same thing. Had two of the $10 score card things and a $20 off 100+. They only let me use the 20 off 100+. Lately I've just been throwing away the coupons they send. Not worth it to drive out there and get $10 off a product that is already 20% above retail.

the 20$ off 100$ can't be used with shimanos :(. The DSG has carried crucials for a while now. I personally wouldn't buy the Dick's in store warranty for shimano rods. I'm pretty sure the Crucials are covered by a life time over the counter warranty where you can take the rod into any shimano dealer and they will give you a new one. Others that have used it could give you a little more insight.

well took the plunge except dicks warranty, they let me use all my  10 buck gift cards. and the 20 off a 100 wouldn't work at beginning but manager did it manually and it was about 70. said I had 30 days to decide on the warranty, this manager is the bomb :) on the back of receipt there is that do the survey and get 10 off of 50, she actually told me to go home do and bring the rod back tomorrow return it and buy it back at 70 plus the 10 off. Which is odd, but I have been hitting up the clearances there and it was my only store id go to till academy opened a block away :) so maybe she is sweet on me lmfao

Higher up shimanos have the over the counter warranty, the dicks one isn't worth it for those.

Also I've never had a problem with their coupons with others and sale items. Every Dick's I've been too has treated me great.

I've been to 4 different dicks here and they all have been great.

I actually just exchanged my mojo for a crucial and I got my mojo crazy cheap.

I returned my rod plus warranty I purchased with the mojo. I had a 20% off that brought the mojo down to $128. After using my score card rewards, I exchanged the rods at no addition costs.

Love the store, althought the closet one to me is the least stocked. The better stocked one just got a shipment of GYCB hard baits. Picked up a few and used the coupon as well.

Be careful with the store warrantees. Most are just money makers and do not hold salt. I had a couple of the "no matter what happens" warrantees and the claims were refused because of owner neglect as it was put. There is also a article on the BBB that says never buy the extended warrantee.

I say it depends.  Had I listened to what the BBB says, and not purchased an extended warranty on a transmission, I would have been out another 1700 bucks.  Or I would have spent another $250 on a weedeater that I purchased. That warranty cost me $10.    

 

Some warranties are worth the money.  Others are not.

$10 means so little now a days that it is very worth it to buy extended warranty on items that do not come with over the counter replacement built in to the mfg warranty. I mean really, the cost of a good crankbait to insure that your expensive rod/reel will be replaced instantly is WELL worth it.
