Yes, but don't expect to save much, the real discounts are on Clothes.
I dunno I got quite a nice discount on a Luminox watch with employee pricing. Although I'm sure any "Cabelas" brand items is where you'll find the biggest discounts.

I stood in line one cold winter evening (they did it different that year) to get in because I wanted to buy a couple of reels at the employee discount. The discount on the reels wasn't bad (10-15%, can't remember exactly), but a friend of mine asked me to check on a depth finder for his boat. I checked at the depth finder desk and the discount was only $10. My experience is that it's mostly hype as the discount wasn't that great. I know at Dick's, they get 10-25% as an employee depending on the item. I figured it would be the same at Cabelas, but evidently not. Don't misunderstand, I like Cabelas, but I wasn't impressed with their employee discount, at least not that year.

it is a gimmick. My dads sister in law works there. They get 40% off on most stuff. had her pick me up some super mag waders. saved $90+. This employee discount is not the real employee discount. It is reduced, but you can still save some good money. I do not like asking her to get me stuff, so I will be going to this sale as well

Ditto to that.. Customer service at franks beats just about anything else hands down. Andy is a good guy...He'll take good care of you should you ever have any problems with anything you buy there. Only thing I've ever found that I even remotely like from Cabelas is their own outerwear clothing. Seems to be fairly priced and on sale quite often. Everything else is bought from Franks!!

picked up some new wool socks. They were on sale and discount didnt apply. I did however pick up a new st. croix ice rod at 20% off as well as an abu garcia at 20% off. I bet the normal sale price of those items is equal to that. I got a $70 sled for $44. Cant complain about that though.
