Dear Dick's Sporting Goods: You Are The Spawn of Satan

Just for fun again THIS year let's play the "Which Item Does the Dick's Sporting Goods coupon actually apply to game! (Answer: gum). The list of exclusions on a Dick's Sporting Goods coupon is mind-boggling. I think it would be simpler for them to have written "everything in our inventory." True story last year their own Customer Service could not tell me what I could actually use a coupon code for. http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=12312192&camp=Email:11282011CyberMonday

I just went online to order a bat for my son, Dicks has a thing on their website 40% off clearance exclusions apply.excludes Ping. Great the bat we want is a clearances item, the sale price does not come up, I call customer service she doesn't why the sale prices doesn't come up, a superviser comes on the phone and states that you have to type in the search box exclusions to see, I said no where on that website does it say that, as it is a very unfriendly customer thing,.... She could do nothing for me!

I hate that list. I work in customer service for the website. Basically how they explained it to me to explain to customers is that we contract with those brand names and the contract states with those brands that we can not discount their products. Nike is infamous for it. I hate telling people that because if its excluded then there is nothing we can do that would not breach contract/get us fired.

I can say this though... the stores are different. They actually buy their stock so they Can discount products like Nike etc.
