Discounts at Cabela's

Veteran's Day weekend, Cabela's outdoor store is offering their employee discount to all veterans, active duty military and reserves, law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel on Nov. 11 and 12.

All the information I've received about this promotion has been second hand and it seems that the website doesn't offer any information. I've heard that the discount varies from 5% to 50%, depending on item, and that it excludes guns, boats, trailers and safes. Learn more.
