Dick's/Callaway Driver Giveaway


Recommended Posts

Not sure if someone else already posted it and I just missed it, but in case not, Dick's is running a promo where if you buy a driver before 6/16 and then select a Callaway pro who wins the US Open, you get that driver for free (in refunded store credit...but still). So not exactly a deal if you weren't in the market BUT if you are in the market for a driver and were looking at Callaway, might as well give this a go and see if you can get it for free.

A little late in posting this, but I just saw this thread.  The better deal with this contest is that there was a no-purchase necessary option.  Write your name and contact info and your choice of winner and mail it in and if your guy wins you get the store credit gift card.  I sent mine in earlier this week once I was sure Rahm was going to be able to play.  Needless to say I'm a big Jon Rahm fan this weekend.

 

Callaway actually did this same contest a decade ago or so back when Phil was their only real tour pro.  If Phil won the masters then you got your driver for free and they had the same no-purchase necessary option (I think this is required by law in a lot of states).  I filled it out 2 years in a row and then forgot the next year and that was the year Phil won the masters 😥.

Super excited to see Rahm win as he is who I picked with my no-purchase necessary contest entry.  Re-read the rules again since I have in theory "won" and my previous post was incorrect.  The mail in entries don't get a gift card, they're going to send me a driver of my choice.  This will make the full bag fitting I had scheduled for next week a little more interesting.  I really want to know what the best driver for me is, but I also have 30 days to pick one of the Epic drivers and shaft combos that I'm getting for free.  So I need to find the best driver and then the best Epic driver/shaft combo for me.  

I guess that is irony since driver is the one club I wasn't planning on replacing since I got fitted for a PXG 0811 XF last season but it was way cheaper to get the full bag fitting compared to irons, hybrids, FW, etc that I actually do need to replace.

I did the same! Will they be reaching out to us soon to ask for which one we want? 

The rules are not very clear about what will happen next.  It says that all prizes need to be claimed by July 15th, but I'm assuming that only applies to people who purchased a driver and entered via web form.  My assumption is based on the fact that it also says that people who entered via mail-in will be sent instructions via email within 30 days of being verified as a winner.  Obviously, 30 days from being verified is going to be well after July 15th since entries can still arrive up until tomorrow 6/23.  Giving them a reasonable amount of time to go through all of the entries and verify winners, I'm guessing we won't be seeing anything for several weeks.  My presumption is that they took all of the mail-in entries and put them in a box/storage with the intent on just throwing them out if a Callaway staffer didn't win.  Being a 3rd party company running this for a profit, there would be no need to process the entries if there wasn't going to be a winner so they probably didn't.  Since Rahm did win, they need to go through all of them now and sort the winners, etc.  My guess is it will take a couple of weeks to do that and then get everyone who won entered into the computer system and coordinate on discount/promo codes with Callaway for the emails to go out.  We'll probably be lucky to get the club by August, but free is free so I'll wait.

 

It's not in the rules, but is on the entry website that mail-in entries will be fulfilled through callawaygolf.com.  My hope is that means we will be able to just configure the driver however we want (head, loft, shaft, flex, grip, etc.) as you can on the site and then they will give us a promo/coupon code to apply in the cart that takes the price to $0.

If anybody gets contacted by Callaway or the company running the promotion (linksunlimited) please post here.  I want to make sure I don't miss the email or have it end up in my spam folder  😬 and delete it on accident.

I'm cautiously optimistic I'll actually get a driver having selected Rahm  via the no purchase entry.   Trying not to get too excited because it seems like Callaway inserted a lot of wiggle room language info the contest rules.  especially all the language about you sending it in didn't mean we got it.   Still they had to know having a staffer whom was a distinct possibility and not following through would be horrible PR.  Fingers crossed but I'll be reaching out to Callaway and links unlimited if I don't hear something by July 10.  I know 5 guys that all entered and picked Rahm so have more than one data point  about how well they fulfill their obligation.

yeah, the mail-in entry part is kind of vague on how this will be handled, but mail delivery is remarkably reliable for as much as people joke about it.  I think it's something over 99% of mail gets delivered so if the 3 of us all get the short end of the stick then I'd say something is up.  

I also expect to hear something by July 10th or I too plan on calling the phone number for the contest company

Purchased driver, submitted via online form.  Emailed yesterday to check on redemption status. Below is the email response I recvd.

"Good morning,

Yes, I do see your submission.

Thank you for participating in the “If Callaway Wins, You Win” US Open promotion.   We are currently reviewing all the submitted entries to validate potential winners.   This process may take up to 7 business days.   Once the validation process is complete, you will receive an email confirmation if you have qualified as a winner.   If you qualified for a free driver, we will include instructions for next steps.   We appreciate your patience while we go through the validation process and thank you for choosing Callaway golf!"

I called the 877-884-0048 customer service number just for giggles and after very little wait time spoke to a pleasant young lady.  She said they've have about 3000 non purchase entry potential winners (picked Rahm) and are in the process of validating each person met the eligibility requirements of the contest.  She also said they've received about 2500 calls.  She noted the July 15 prize claim date is likely moving out slightly but they expect emails will go out week of July 12.  So we're getting close but it looks like there's at least a couple more weeks of waiting to get confirmation of being a contest winner.

Thanks for the update....I figured something like that would be the case.  

Was she able to verify if they had received yours and it's awaiting validation or just that they are showing through them?

She didn't confirm mine just that they were going through all the entries and that it was taking longer than expected and that the July 15 date would be moving out.  Details to be communicated in the email you receive no later than the week of July 12.  So still cautiously optimistic and trying to not get too excited that I've actually won a new driver.

ok, got impatient and called again.  call was answered on first ring and woman I spoke to said ~ 3000 entries (all hand validated) worth of info headed to Callaway today and winning notification email, requesting driver spec you want should be sent out no later than Monday.  

getting tantalizingly close.  Still only cautiously optimistic.....

Nice to hear....I'm still hoping Callaway just issues a coupon code or some kind of gift card so we can configure our club on the site.

The rules say "WINNERS WHO PARTICIPATED BY MAIL-IN ENTRY shall receive one (1) Callaway Epic Speed driver, Epic MAX driver, or Epic MAX LS driver of their choice, subject to availability; winner’s specifications not guaranteed.   They also say "Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize of comparable or greater value, at its sole discretion. All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion."  So they could decide to give you $530 worth of last year's XXXL shirts that are still in inventory.......

All of why I only remain cautiously optimistic.....

I'm also waiting anxiously on the winning email. Not sure which driver to choose.  Being that this is a Dicks/Golf Galaxy promotion, if I walk in with my winning email, do you think I could get a free fitting to figure out which driver works best?
