RTIC insulated cups made of stainless steel. 60% off. $10.49 normally $34.95. But many sizes to choose from. I own several and they are incredible. Will keep ice in your drink for 24 hours.

https://www.rticcoolers.com/shop/drinkw ... 0-oz-White
Sweet! I just ordered 4 of the 30oz version. One each for our neighbor and his wife who take care of our lawn for us because they're nice people, and one for me and one for my wife.
30oz is the perfect size. 40 is to big. Now go on ebay and order handles. They are a must have. As the mugs get very cold. Handles are like $3 or less each. And better design than sold by RTIC. Like these:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tumbler-Handle ... UGW4FSdu6Q
Got the handles yesterday and they don't fit. The top ring is too small to slide up very far and the bottom ring is too big to grip the cup.

Image

Looks like Rtic changed the cup style/dimensions on the 30oz cups.

Ebay seller refunded one handle, wants the others back... he's in China. Ain't happening. Left negative feedback and moving on.

That's odd. It's the same ones I ordered for my mugs. And the listing says it's for RTIC. Weird. I'm very sorry that happened.

As mentioned previously Remington has a $50 rebate in the mix as well. That should lower the price to $175 plus shipping and transfers.

Yeti sued RTIC a couple of years ago. As part of the settlement, RTIC agreed to change the styling of their tumblers. The new(ish) style is skinnier in the base and slightly wider upper. Of you wanted even deeper RTIC tumbler discounts, the time for that was certainly when they were blowing out all the old design stock!

Evidently Gander Outdoors did away with their FFL fees a couple of months back, even if you didn't buy it from them. That was a pleasant surprise to me the other day when I picked up the rifle I'd purchased from Midway.

Mountain House Military Meals 40% off!

Over on the Mountain House web site they're doing 40% off for Veteran's Day! On all their military meals. The code is SaluteU. It's supposed to be good til midnight Monday. But I'd use the code as soon as you can. It's only on the LRP/Military Meals. But they are probably their coolest meals anyway. :)

XGO is having a 50% off sale. They make mostly baselayers. But here are some hunting camo baselayers for $4 plus 50% off I assume. So if you don't mind your baselayers being camo. It's a great deal. The 50% off sale is listed on the home page. Dig around the site for other clothing items at half off.

@kinjadeals (This is the best one. It's part of Lifehacker. They really put out a lot of great deals.) @gizmododeals @dealsplus @fatkideals This last one tweets a lot of the same stuff over and over throughout the day. Best to just check their feed once a week or so. But they do post some cheap deals on stuff.

Put "deals" in the search bar of twitter. They will all come up. But I also get on the mailing list for everyplace I buy a lot of stuff from. Like Major Surplus makes up a lot of my posts here. And it's' just my local surplus store. But they are active on email. And have a lot of sales.

I also hang out on gun-deals.com That place posts a lot of surplus and outdoor gear too. Bug out related items. Besides just guns and gun stuff. I think it's there "accessories" page that shows all the outdoor or other stuff. Anything gun related your going to find the cheapest price within their search engine. Hands down the best place to shop for guns. Ammo too. You could keep this thread full of posts just from that one site.

PS - No I have not been camping. And I don't even have a good excuse. Like all the wildfires. lol. And I've been working on my bug out vehicle a lot this year. I hope to get out in my Jeep more. With the dog and wife.

Thank you for this! I think I can make a 'disposable' Twitter account for this. Email alerts fr me are real hit/miss. :?

I'm going to boost my moral from the news yesterday & take that .44 to the range today. It will get up to low 50s today! :D

Spec-ops is 30% off sitewide on friday. The best prices of the year are on their year end sales deals. But you won't find everything in stock. So this may be the best sale of the year. I have their recon ruck and it's great.

Can't get the link up, but the O-light store is offering two "free" offers this weekend for keychain flashlights. Was really pleased with the one I got on the last free gift they had. If you already have registered with them, you can get a small black keychain flashlight that has the ability to charge via USB. If you register with them new, looks like you can get the same keychain flashlight from the offer a few months ago. Or, you can be like me and get the one in your name because you already registered and force your spouse to grudgingly sign up so you can get another of the ones you got as a new member :D Just FYI, you have to pay 5 bucks shipping, but I thought the little flashlight was definitely worth it and retails for $15.

Forgot to mention. gun-deals.com is really good for ammo. I don't know if the other site has the same functionality. But you can put in your zipcode and get a huge list of filters. And you get a price per round with shipping. It even tells you what primer etc. etc. Very powerful tool. Compare the filters on each before deciding.
