That is dumb.
I was thinking the same thing. Their explanation was that they didn't want us to double dip. They ran the bonus with everything at "normal prices" and they didn't want us to use store credit later during a sale. This is why I passed as nothing was worth buying at the listed prices.
I kinda get it, but if I'm trading in clubs, it's because I don't want to spend money when I can just use the value of older clubs to get something newer. just stupid, global golf and them don't do 50% on top but they do have some bonuses from time to time that make it somewhat more appealing. oh well i'll just wait
