Default S&W Rebate

Most of y'all may know already, but S&W has just put out a rebate offer that runs through the end of June.

$25 back on SD or SDVE
$50 back on Bodyguard 380
$75 back on M&P Shield

Some good deals to be had there.

Well, if S&W didn't entice anybody else with the rebate program, they got me. Shield 9mm was $299 before tax and rebate at Alexander's Store in Blairsville. Tax was $21, so after the $75 rebate, I got it for $245. Just couldn't pass that up.

Can't beat that. I bought one about 4 or 5 years ago and paid $400. I really like the shield !

Thanks for that tip. I'll take a look there. There is a Crimson Trace grip that I wanted for my wife's gun.

S&W really doesn't currently make a gun, other than the Shield, that I care for. I have a couple guns that cover the size of the shield already so I guess I'll pass on any S&W enticement at this time.

Got one Shield 9mm today for 369.99 plus tax. Also bought a extra 8 round magazine.

Any one knows how long it will take to get the rebate money back?


Thanks

Don't for get the $75 refund.

$290 (9mm) + 7% ($20.30) = $310.30 - $75 =$235.30 for a M&P Shield 9 MM.

Don't forget shipping and transfer fee. The $290 Shield 9mm does not currently include free shipping.

True. I did not notice the $289 does not include free shipping but the $319 does. Good catch.

Agreed.

Hard to beat that deal on a gun that will carry easy and shoot well. I know several folks who have them and never hear any complaints.


8 round magazines for $19 for it. Admittedly, this was the first and only place I looked for magazines for the Shield.

https://www.cdnnsports.com/smith-wes...ctory-mag.html


This week I added a small Sig 9mm (7+1 single stack) that weighs very close to the Shield....had to replace the G43 that the wife has taken over. Handy little gun that shoots well, night sights and disappears and is forgotten about in a IWB holster.

Speaking of holsters.....they are readily available or at least often found as "quick ship" for the Shield models.

Got my 9mm fde shield this past Saturday at Alexander's in Blairsville too. $245 after rebate and tax. They have the performance center shield for another $100. The only difference I wanted was a better trigger (don't care about barrel port or fiber sights) but I could hardly tell the difference so I stayed with the standard shield and kept the $100 difference. Hard to beat $245 for a quality handgun. I plan on making it my EDC and replace my old kel-tec pf9 as a backup. Get em while you can, the rebate ends next month.

Spares are good for rotation.


Shipping costs do factor in at some point for certain. I guess the guns come with two mags of different sizes.....5 additional may be more than folks want to bite off for a single gun.....I dunno.

The largest volume of magazines I own are G17 & 1911 as they work as either primary or reloads for multiple guns.

I can't believe that I've resisted the urge to jump on one of these Shield deals. I'm just covered in that niche....but, dang....that's a solid deal all the way around.

Yea, I've been wanting a shield for long time so couldn't resist $299 before rebate. It comes with 1 7-rounder and 1 8-rounder. I just picked up another 8 rounder on flea bay for $23 shipped.

I took the $299 sales ad in my GON magazine to Academy and they will match and beat any advertised price (verifiable of course) by 5%. I walked out of the door with my pistol for $304 and will be getting $75 back from Smith. $229 for a new 9mm is a pretty sweet deal.

Dang. I think you might have locked up the best deal award with that price.

How much sales tax did you have to pay?
