BaseGear 20% Off All Non-Sale Items on 07/28/2009 00:44:33 MDT Print View

I have never heard of this company before, but they have a 20% off deal going on when you join a free email membership that sends out a monthly newsletter. On top of that, they are having an end of the clearance on a bunch of stuff. I am going to buy a sleeping pad and foot print from them. However, before I jump the gun, has anyone ordered from them before?

...this BaseGear deal seems a little extreme. Please correct me if I am wrong, as far as the return policy is concerned, am I right in coming to the conclusion that if I buy $300 worth of stuff I will get $60 off (20%). However, if for whatever reason the item does not work out for me, then when I get refunded instead of getting the $300-60= $240 back...I will get back the amount I spent minus the discount. Therefore, I would get back $180 instead of $240.

Dunno where you read that. Here is the return policy. Providing the stuff you buy is "returnable" (not long underwear, tags still on it etc) then if you spent $300-20%=$240 you will get $240-shipping as a refund.

[Ashley pockets another cool $10... =-)]

Here is what I am talking about... on 07/28/2009 02:03:20 MDT Print View

"Please remember that if you return any items from an order in which you received free shipping and/or a promotional gift or discount, the original savings associated with the returned item will be deducted from the refund amount."

This would be a 20% "discount" or "promotional discount" would it not?

(No $10 for you, you totally missed this very important term and condition that could have ended up costing me $60. In fact, I think they should fire you. I am writing the general office as soon as I conclude this post!)

You're misinterpreting it, although I admit it could be worded more clearly.

They just mean that if you buy a $300 item but only pay $240 after discount, they won't give you a $300 refund if you return it.

I've used them -- they're good.

Also, and I'm sure this is no mistake on their part, the 20% off deal sounds like a 1-time only thing, i.e. "free membership -- get 20% off your 1st purchase" or something like that.

But every time I buy something from them I just punch that button & get 20% off. Cool...

It's when an Aussie tries to interpret American English to Americans that we start getting into trouble...

Kidding aside, I believe Ashley's interpretation is correct.
