The worst thing about TW

Recommended Posts

Those darn stickers they send with every order.  They are a constant reminder of just how much money I waste on their site.

:-[

They just keep piling up.  It won't be long I'll be making a shirt from them.  ;)

I have not ordered from them yet.  But I have a list of things to get from them before the ice melts.  My kids love stickers.

I am getting my first (of many I am sure) sticker Friday with my new Powell.

That place is way too awesome for my wallet.  I got 60 bucks I know I should save but I just keep thinking about all the combinations of different baits that would fill my cart.

I also need to stock up on P-Line too....so maybe I will have myself a 3,000 yard spool sent my way.... ;)

The good part is is that soon you'll get free t-shirts, hats or sweatjackets.

A Tackle Warehouse hat?!?!?!

And combine that with free shipping?!?!?!?

;)

I gotta start ordering stuff from there more often.

I agree, I threw away my bass pro catalogs. Why pay those ridiculously high shipping fees and TW's costumer service is hard to beat, plus better prices.

All my orders from TW have been complete and prompt.  Prices are reasonable and free shipping for orders over $50 is great.  

If some of your stuff is backordered, they will ship what they have right away.  Then they will wait until everything else is in and ship it via 1st class mail when it arrives at no extra charge.   The hard part is waiting for the backordered stuff.  I've been waiting for the rest of an order I placed in late January to arrive.  I ordered a bunch of Norman Suspending DD22s and Suspending Deep Little Ns.  3 of those were backordered.  The delivery date has been pushed back twice now.  Now they say they will ship on 2/13.

I really love how fast they are about orders.

Like I mentioned before, I ordered a Powell around 12:00 pm on Monday.

It was already on its way to me before the day was done and I should have it in my possession by Friday.  And the shipping was free.  

I will gladly display that sticker for sure.

Bass Pro cannot match this at all.  I have placed orders on their website that took two days to process.  There is no reason for that in my opinion.

TW is great. I also just had a great experience with Hookeduptackle. Thought I would share.

Basspro shops isnt any better with backorders. If something is on backorder just cancel it and order it again latter. Trust me.  ;)

At either place it is better to leave it backordered if you really want the product. At least you will be first in line. I must admit I have spent way too much at TW, anybody want some stikers  ;D I love that place. I better go, just remembered there was something else I needed.  ;D

I like that Hooked Up Tackle as well.  They have a great Ebay site and prices are very reasonable.

True but you can probably find it somewhere else before you get your backorder if your that desperate. In my experiance you dont know when you will get it and its annoying to carry that $15 on your checking balance 3 months. >:)

I've got a few stickers. I started to plaster them as a background on a big cork bulletin board I have. I'll cover the whole thing one day.

I also got a discount price on a sweatshirt when I ordered my last reel. I think I paid $10 for it when it is normally $30.

If the one sticker they send you will all your orders isn't enough.... try this.

They are FREE with an order!!!  I usually order a few of each size when I do my orders.  I don't really need them, maybe i'll sell them as a lot on ebay one day??  But hey, they are free!!!!

Don't know how this got from TW stickers to BPS bashing but I checked out 2 sites bizz recommended and unless you are really into large swimbaits, neither can match BPS or TW for selection or price.

Of the 2 BTD, is pretty good though. Overall TW has best pricing and BPS and TW offer best selection. I like BPS because I actually like to see and handle (especially rods and reels) before I buy so I don't get a noisy reel or a rod with misaligned or cracked guides.

Just my humble opinion. ;)

TW has become my go to online store.  Love the free shipping on orders over $50.  Not a big fan of getting whacked for $10-20 shipping from Basspro or Cabelas on a rod or some tackle.

TW lets you know when they expect the item to be restocked and will ship backordered items for free (as long as original total was >$50).

The only reason to order from anyone other than TW is if they don't carry the item for which you are in the market.
