Moosejaw $100 Mystery Gift on 03/05/2012 12:20:15 MST Print View

Has anyone taken advantage of the $100 Moosejaw Mystery Gift? I have been eyeing the Arc'Teryx Alpha SL rain pants for a while now, but wanted to wait for a sale/discount/etc. before pulling the trigger on them. Reading through the reviews it seems like people love the mystery gifts so I'm tempted to make the addition to the gear closet.

and was disappointed. it was all moosejaw items like a tshirt, sweatshirt, flag, and keychain. while i cant complain too much because it is free, it appears it is just a marketing thing to get you to wear the moosejaw logo around, plus getting rid of old stock.

for example they have the MJ sweatshirt they sent me at retail value of $50, nobody in their right mind is paying $50 for a MJ sweatshirt, so take that into consideration. the MJ flag was probably a $10 item too. its in the garbage can.

do not think of it as a $100 discount, if you can get the item cheaper somewhere else, do it.

At moosejaw you can go through Mr. Rebates , get an 8% rebate on top of the coupon code MRREB15 for 15% off. That would put you at $170 ($156 after rebate) PLUS the MJ points.

so it depends if you think your mystery gift will be worth about $45 in the long run. maybe so maybe not.

Thanks for the feedback Bobby... I figured the free gifts wouldn't be anything to write home about, but after reading more reviews it sounds like Moosejaw doesn't even attempt to send you clothing in your size. Kind of lousy if you ask me.

Oh well, maybe they'll have a St Patty's Day Sale later this month.

oh no they do send in your size, at least when i did it, they ask you for your size at your cart or checkout if I rememebr corerctly. maybe you have to add the mystery gift to your cart.
