Dish Network Archive
As a deal hunter, I’ve seen all sorts of, “buy x get y free” deals. But this deal might be the absolute oddest deal I’ve ever seen. If you head to Billings, Montana, you can pick up a free gun if you purchase a Dish Network system. Let me repeat that in case you were a bit confused just like I was the first time. You can get a free GUN if you purchase a satellite television system.
The Billings Gazette has all of the details of this offer. Radio Shack store owner Steve Strand noted regarding the free gun deal, “I think it really, really fits the Bitterroot Valley.”
Qualifying customers have the choice between a Hi Point 380 pistol or a 20-gauge shotgun. The deal is only good for new Dish Network customers and they must buy a certain amount of equipment to qualify for the free gun.
But have no fear, if you aren’t interested in a free SHOTGUN, you can opt to select a $50 Pizza Hut gift card instead.
If you select the pistol or the shotgun, you must pass a background check. Store manager Fabian Levy notes, “We’re not just giving guns to felons.” I would hope not!
Lastly the store notes that while the current “gun with satellite” offer is for Dish Network, they will be expanding the offer to DirecTV next month.
Having been born and raised in NYC, my only response is, WTF???
