Cabelas sells these, P4's. What I do is buy the gift cards off Ebay, and do the survey for another $20 off. I have bought a number of these gift cards. I do a lot of shooting, and it helps cut my cost. A $50 gift card for $40 is a 20% saving.

$50 Cabela's Gift Card For Only $40!! - FREE Mail Delivery | eBay
That's really amazing. The logical part of my brain is saying "what's the catch?" because I don't see how Cabelas can afford to do this. Can you use the gift cards for online purchases or do you have to use them in a store?

You can use them on line, or in any store. I have done this for almost two years. No catch. Save a receipt, or pick one up and do the survey at Cabelas. I can do it in about two minutes. Save another $20. If you have a friend that works there, they get a fairly good discount, depending on what it is. I am spoiled. They have these discounts all the time. Once in a great while you can get a $100 one for $70. I am giving my self 15 of these for Christmas. My friend that works there is going to own part of the P4P I will be getting later on. Just 15 more gift cards. LOL

OK, so I went to the Ebay site and found out that 5 was the maximum number of cards that can be purchased. Is that a permanent limit, or could I order 5 and then immediately order another 5?

It would have been nice if they would have said the limit was 5. They have these about every week. It isn't permanent. I have bought 10 this week. It may be so many an offering. When I see the offer again I will post here.

Thanks. They're still available at the link in your first post. I just ordered 5 (the maximum allowed).

I figure that sooner or later Cabelas will have the Phantom 4 Pro, and if I can get it for 20% less than I could anywhere else, that would be a great deal.

I'll wait a day or two and see if I can buy another 5 of the gift cards.

You could have some one else log in and buy them for you to. The gift cards are like money. Maybe I will have my wife log in and buy some more. But, I am suppose to be doing this "slowly". I can only use the Christmas angle so much. It is the P4P I want. But, I really don't need it till spring. NOW, if you know some one that works there, and use the cards ? That would sweet. I have another trick I found, I'll PM you.
