Beware Coffs Harbour
Spoke to assistant store manager about spend $150 and save $30, was told had to be a order line for that deal, so I emptied my trolley and did online order in store, then had to wait 1hr 45mins for staff to process order. Commonsense should prevail when customers have all the goods ready on go, rather than blunt rudeness. Lucky Acaconda and Road Tech Marine are now Coffs Harbour both offering customer service.
My swag lasted two days
I purchased a 420dollar infinity single wanderer swag on July the 5th, I set up camp on the sixth, the weather went a little windy and wet and on the 8th, two of the support poles snapped... the end of my little camping trip... oh, by the way whilst setting up camp the pegs which were to be provided were not there, I wasn't gonna drive 160 kms back to cairns to get pegs so had to purchase them from the local mitre ten at 2 bucks each... I called the store and was told There's nothing you can do about it mate, the poles aren't under warranty!

BCFing scammed in Geelong
BCFing website has Shimano TiAgra leader for $5.94, fins leader for $1.54, so I go to Corio Vic 3214 store and get 6 spools and it comes to $19. I give him a $20 note and he says now sorry it's $120+! He scans again and its $19, then it's $120+ again. He calls lady over and she says my phone's lying! But it was $19 on the BCFing register. Then she says I'm lying, trying to scam her! I go home angry and check the BCFing website again and it says TiAgra $5.94! So I plan to go back to the store and sought this out! Who's scamming who? All this happened at Corio Geelong store on 25/01/2020 at about 4 pm, and yes I gave him my BCFing club number! So is BCF club a BCFing scam?

Excellent Service online & in store
I placed my order at 7.50am. I made an error, called their customer service line which opens from 730am. They were so helpful. They fixed my order. Exactly 2 hrs later i received a text advising me my package is ready for collection. I chose Wetherill Park store.
They were so professional, polite and had everything ready for me.
My order was correct.
I've had the best experience dealing with BCF, this was the first time i ever purchased anything and wont be the last.
They're so organised and professionals.
I found the staff very helpful when I was looking for lures, they helped me and gave me useful tips to use next time I’m fishing, there range is huge
Great customer service
Just moved home to the Belmont area and dropped into the local BCF to grab a few gifts and was pleasantly surprised by the sales assist Judy who was extremely helpful. I ended up walking out with some great gifts and look forward to going there again
No courtesy for faulty product
An extremely hot day out of necessity, bought auto blow up bed from bcf. Found it faulty and leaking once home . I have lung fibrosis requiring oxygen, and did not have any other bed to sleep on. Rang them and asked for their courtesy of bringing another to my home nearby to swap over on their way somewhere. I was given a flat out "no" regardless of extenuating circumstances. Thanks for nothing. Will drag it back to store to get a refund and not buy any further product.

Bought 2 camping chairs as part of their Black Friday sale Click & Collect as it worked out cheaper that way whilst actually in the store & had up to 4 staff attending to me & checking their Portal to see when the order came through. Done and dusted in 10 mins & walked out with some camping chairs at a great price - very good customer service
Knife is excellent quality for the price. The staff were non intrusive and helpfull the store is large, clean and parking is free and plentiful. Greet shopping experience. Large range.

The staff at BCF Virginia went above and beyond for me recently after I was originally disappointed by the actions of another BCF store. They contacted many BCF stores to locate a particular item for me to save me driving all over town.
19.95 tent essential
This tent is brilliant for a ball pit for out side and in, protects from the sun, granddaughter loves it and sturdy unlike ball pits you buy, can zip balls inside as well
Need gas refilled three shops in street refill for $19.99 so does BCF Taree. Forster store refused to price match even though we purchased a new bottle from them! Went next door and filled l our bottles.
BCF Maroochydore have the best staff of any shop. They are always smiling and more then happy to help me out. They call over the staff member that actually fishing your desired species and region (Saratoga, in fresh water, flatheads from kayaks) it's great. Plus returns are taken with a happy face and normally no questions asked. My go to.
BCF refund policy is a crock don’t be caught out.
Having been a BCF club member for more than 15 years and having spent thousands of dollars in the store. I was extremely upset when having to return an item that was not what I needed the item was returned within a few days of purchase. At the time of return the staff seemed to be unaware of how to complete this refund, I the customer was not made aware of any BCF policy at the time that related to funds spent and electronically refunded to my card not being processed by BCF,s banking institution for a minimum of 2 days and a maximum of 5 days....In fact the staff did not process this refund at the time of return. I left the shop quite bewildered and confused at the lack of information given to me other than it would go back on to my account. This did not occur and I found myself having to contact the store a number of days later, again my initial contact was with a staff member who did not have the knowledgeable or assumed training to assist. He said he would speak to his manager and get them to assist and have them call me back. I received a call back from the staff member who had informed me that his manager would call back, stating that his manager was to busy and was unsure themselves on how to complete the required monetary refund and that they would leave a message for the weekday manager to call me back to assist, again the manager did not call and I found myself having to contact the store to speak to the manager. Developing theme of inability to assist customers, as I’m sure that I am not alone. The weekday manager said that the easiest way to fix the problem was to come into the store which I did. Now having ensured and confirmed that the refund is supposed to go through immediately with my banking institution was expecting funds to appear with a few hours at the most. I was prepared to spend some of the refunded funds in the BCF store but the refunded amount was not in my account, I was then told that it’s there bank one of the big 4 that doesn’t release the funds for between 2-5 days and that there was nothing that they could do, the store manager was not prepared to talk to there accounts department. And basically implied that,that’s just how it is and that I would need to suck it up. This experience has really soured my desire to ever return to a BCF store ever again, and Inwill now shop at Annaconda who actually provide their club members with real discounts and offers. Kmart,Big W, supply much the same fishing gear and have caping gear that it considerably cheaper than what BCF offer to there club memebers. The only thing that BCF offer myself as the customer is a whole lot of spam emails, poor I store customer service from staff who don’t actually know what there talking about in relation to products sold and will attempt to push certain brands of items which are not of interest or are considerably more expensive.
Excellent service, wide product range, good prices
I have been to BCF Belconnen many times, and have always been impressed by the friendly service and range of products.
Over 12 months ago, I bought a Hema HX1 off-road navigator, and had a problem with the power connector shortly after. BCF quickly arranged for a brand new replacement.
I then used the navigator on an extended 4wd holiday in northern Australia. It worked perfectly for whole time I was away. At the end of the holiday, after driving extended distances on some really rough dirt roads, I had the same problem with navigator. I took ...
