Will expire the end of Feb, If you have a gift card or bonus bucks saved up better use them.

Is there a link?

I understood that if your account has had activity on it in the last 18 months that they won't expire.

Regardless I've been pretty disappointed with that company since the buyout. Bass Pro running it into the ground

I agree. I don't shop there unless I get enough points on my card. Too expensive.

Not running it to the ground, just dismantling it and disposing of it in the most profitable manner. They already changed the name on the local store and appear to bent on closing out most C's brand items. To be plain there is no longer a Cabela's company, BP is using Cabela's name just like Cabela's used Herter's name. You might want to keep those gift cards as collector items.

I heard this rumer about their discontinuing the point system some time ago. Checked it out and was told it's not true.

I used up all my points.cards Sat 19 Jan, and that's what I was told at the checkout. Looks like BP is doing away with as much of the Cabelas name stuff that they can.

Cabelas ruined the town they were founded in when they sold out. Left hundreds of folks high and dry. I used my last gift card and I'm done with them.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

I have had a Cabelas card for over 20 years. Before BPS if you called for service it never range more than 2 times and you were promptly taken care of by a friendly person in Sydney, Nebraska. Now it rings and you get put on hold for 20 min to talk with someone I can't understand. On top of that they are doing away with Visa and forcing you to get there Mastercard. Not me. Got another credit card and canceled after all the years of good service. I guess I will now buy from Amazon instead of BPS/Cabelas.

Gift cards do not expire if they were purchased. That's a state law in Minnesota, not sure about other states. As far Cabela's club points, mine still look goo d, and are being added on as I use my new card. Not sure this "heads up" is accurate.

You are correct I talked with customer service yesterday as I am getting ready to travel and didnít want my purchases flagged. While on the phone with them I asked about club points going away and I was told by customer service that they are not going away.

Not happy with some BP stuff. Cabelas seems more of a northern tier store while BP seems more southern tier. I will be buying a lot less from them as time goes by.

I did the same thing. Cabelas always had much better selection, quality, and customer service than BassPro. Always gave them my business because of that. I understand what BassPro is doing but they won't gain my business this way. I hope another player steps up to bat but most of them were bought up too
