So, I have used these 10% off coupon deals before on my PRS and my old Fender Squire... but Looking on the back it says : excludes fender, peavey... and a bunch more..

So does this Mean they will be cheap and not give me 10% off on a peavey amp?

But that's weird if they don't because it says excludes fender, and I bought a squire with 10% off... :X

They will most likely give it to you. If you are slick enough and just say how you didn't notice it, and ask politely, they will probably do it. If not, you could just say "Darn... I really only had enough to cover it at that price + tax" and how you "Guess I'll have to get it another time or something." Chances are they will go for a sale now and just give it to you. They make a lot of profit off of guitars anyways and I'm pretty sure they still get part of their pay as commission.

Or even better, say, "Aww, i guess i'll have to get it at a different music store"

Coupons are gimmicks to get you in the store and feel like you are losing out saving a few bucks if you don't buy something. You want to really score at GC? Make them price match something you want that is in stock at an online store that is cheaper and has no shipping and tax required if you can. Take then a computer print out from the online store cart screen so GC can see what the final amount would be there. If there is a shipping charge they will add that into the item price so avoid that and look for a free shipping deal. Sometimes when they honor a price match they advertise 10% the difference off. For example for Christmas I got myself a Boss NS-2 that they wanted to sell for $110. I found it at Musicians Friend for $79. GC wasn't to happy about it but they had to sell theirs to me for $75 so that was a deal!

MF IS GC! Same exact company.

Now... What ya need to do is make them pircematch a guitar you find for $200 less on sale. The look on their faces then is pure hilarity.

Are you certain? The girl at the counter looked mad and showed my printout to her co-worker and said, "Why are they doing this? I checked and it's legit." LOL.

That's pretty funny.


GCs 30 day return policy makes it so if you find the item cheaper or it goes on sale you can go in and get that money reimbursed right?

Yeah GC and MF are the same company and yeah we price match each other. Big deal, happy to do it if it helps the customer get what they need.

And to the OP, the coupon says "no use on CERTAIN peavey and fender" because there are certain products (EG the SVR Lenny signature) that we cant take anything off of. Idk about peavey but thats what it is. We'll use a 10% coupon on a peavey amp anytime.

And pricematches are "the match + 10% of the difference." so if the pedal is 100 instore and 90 at Sweetwater or something, we'll sell it to you for 89.

It hasn't been a secret that Music123, Guitar Center, and Musicians Friend are all part of the same company. Not only that, but also Giardinelli/The Woodwind and Brasswind, Guitar Sale, Private Reserve Guitars, Musician.com, and Harmony Central are all part of the same company. That's why a lot of their stuff ends up looking the same even if the sales are different occasionally.
