It's showing the same for me. Maybe certain stuff is exempt from birthday pricing.
Is the Leupold going on a pistol? If so, the 6.5 MOA is a good choice.
An M17, but I was hoping for a discount. I understand maybe not all products will be discounted, but it does state birthday price.

It’s this, there are not a ton of things that qualify for the birthday discount. I tried hard last year and ended up buying a camp stove I didn’t really need.

I would Email them that, be polite, act stupid like its a bug or something (we all know it is not a bug). Their team will realize they got caught and hopefully give you a better price.

I used my "Birthday" pricing at Midway. First thing I noticed was a lot of things did not qualify but it was tagged with the Birthday Price label.

I did get some Redding reloading dies and they were a few dollars cheaper with the birthday price.

I got a super deal on a glock slide and glock upper kit on my birthday pricing promo last November. waiting for this year's offer. not even gonna entertain the thought of a boycott until then.

Weird. I got birthday pricing a few months ago on a black powder revolver ON my birthday. Kicked myself for not buying two. No such discount the next day.

Pistol markup is very low. There’s no reason to expect some special deal from Larry on a lousy P320.

Looks the same to me.
Correct select items only.
I got good deals last Nov on my Bfay discount.
Ended up with midway stoner brand free float Mlock for $28
SR-1?target centers almost 1/2 off
Random cleaning supplies
Picked up some williams sights
All in all I saved about 40% over normal prices and free shipping over $49

Not to be a dickhead but I believe it is only for items already on sale or clearance.

that means something else. that clause is saying that you can't combine discounts, so if it qualifies for birthday pricing and something else (i.e. sale, clearance) you'll get the lowest price offered.

for example, greeblies are on clearance for 15% off, while you qualify for a 5% birthday discount on same. They'll give you the 15% off because that's the better deal. Meanwhile, there's a 20% birthday savings on widgets though the regular sale is 10% - happy birthday to you, you get 20% off!

That makes more sense. I went for a Lee single stage press for my Bday discount. It was solid.

Sadly, the "kids" lived in Missouri for almost 5 years and I never got to venture to MUSA. Hell, I didn't even get to the big-ass BPS and zoo/aquarium. Or Marty's drug-lord casino for that matter.
