Maybe we could make a new one of these? It is very outdated.

These 14-day supply kits sometimes get really discounted via Walmart online.  I have been checking this item (select 14-day supply) every day:
Mountain House at Walmart

After 2ish weeks of watching, as of this instant it is $53 per kit with free shipping!  Plus the rebate (I think, haven't read the fine print yet).  That's less than $1.50 per pouch!

Were you able to get the item added to the cart for purchase?

I keep getting an error message both on the computer as well as my mobile phone.

You are correct, thanks again for posting this up!

Ordered one 14 day kit for now, will order some more the next time it comes around.

I was in a local REI and bought four packets for the wife unit and I to try that cost about as much as the 14 day supply!

Keep watching it, it apparently comes around periodically.  I actually found this deal on another Arfcom deal thread, but now I can't find it.  I wanted to post that it worked, about 2 weeks after the OP posted his secret.  And this time it was active for at least 12 hours, maybe 24, where the OP previously had seen it available for only 2-3 hours.

This almost makes up for the fact that my local WMs don't have a storable foods section the way some out west do.  I would very much like to just add a #10 can to the regular shopping each week rather than big chunks of product when a deal comes along.  But with this deal for meals and the 50% off Augason from a few months ago for cans of staples, my available storage space is pretty packed.

Too great.  I got mine in and processed.  But, received "technical glitch" on pricing email today.  It was either pay another $180.00 or cancel.  I canceled.

On a side note, I got my $50 rebate from Mountain House back today.

Well, I got an email from someone claiming to be Safecastle today too.  Looks like a phishing email trying to get my paypal.  Wrong order number, for one.  And when I checked out, it was with Walmart, and the "actual price" was $53.07 each.  So I'm waiting for something from Walmart.  Not trying to be a dick but I'm tired of this bait and switch (seen so many times on Amazon), whoever is responsible for it.  You make a deal with the devil, you have to live with it.

I recieved same email. Will follow up with Walmart tomorrow.

Possible positive update.

I almost posted last night since the price on the 14-day packs was back down to $53 on Walmart, but a small difference that it was shown as sold by Walmart, not Safecastle.  And out of stock.  It's been showing $53 all day today.  

Then I got this email from Safecastle just now.  Still with the wrong order number though.  Looks like some people must have been complaining to Walmart.  I had been lying low, did not talk to anyone.  The projected delivery timeframe was finished on Nov 2 so I was about to start complaining to Walmart as to why the order hadn't progressed.  But, laziness may pay off.

We are glad to inform your product will be shipped at the price you placed an order for. We understand that this is a glitch that happened on our end and we are obliged to honor the prices our esteemed customers purchased the items from us. We apologize for the delay in this order, you will receive the Tracking details immediately the product is shipped.

If you have any queries/concerns/clarifications, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

We thank you for your business.

Best,

Just to complete the loop, I received the MH products today.  All correct and it's a hoot to see expiry as "Best by April 2047".  Thanks to SafeCastle for honoring the deal.

This is another example of the #1 rule of the Amazon deals thread, which is "Don't talk to Amazon".  This applies to Walmart as well.  Don't volunteer to cancel, make them be the bad guys and cancel you.  They get bad statistics for cancelling deals, so they are less likely to do it.

14-day pack is back to $264 on Walmart now, listed as fulfilled by SafeCastle.  I'll continue to monitor and post here if it's back lower and in stock.

I received my shipment of MH from Safecastle.

All was in order.

I used same approach of me not cancelling and kept asking them what they wanted to do.

In the end Safecastle's response was to send me the product at the advertised price.

If you have a Dunham's close by check out their markdowns - In the flashlight section there is a Eureka Niteguide 210 running 2xCR123 at about 240 + lumens. Hard dark grey anodizing, single momentary - on/off pushbutton on the tail, with focusing head that goes from spot to flood marked 1x4. $17.97. Nice machining, decent threads, overall that personal Surefire look with larger head and smaller body, with rings, scallops etc. Nice light. Threads were anodized which is a nice plus, the head does not screw off.

You may want to carry it in a belt holster, so, off to Academy for a Tactical pistol mag holster for under $6 - but I already had one. I may still get it as they had Coyote (is the new black.)

These are frequently sold out on other websites and ran for as much as $69 at one time, Dunhams MSRP was $49.99 on the package.

Why was I in Dunhams? Tried to find a canvas vest that wasn't $60? Yep, both Smith's and Wolverine were there with berber fleece, nice tailoring, the Wolverine was atypical lined inset pockets with inside phone pocket, high fleeced collar,  the Smiths had typical patched canvas pockets with a chest zip phone outer pocket and inner patch pocket, knit flight collar. $24.97 - I bought both. Good working casual vests which will keep you warm while working outdoors or just lounge after supper when the wood stove is down.

That's another story.

The Walmart I use and the others in the area don't stock the Auguson dehydrated foods, or any others for that matter.  I guess they do more often out west?  But today there were 5 cans of Auguson veggies in the clearance area.  $4 each, that's a decent deal even for the spinach flakes and broccoli .  Good stuff to the regular stash, spinach and broccoli to the "charity for neighbors" pile.  But probably still tastes good once you're a few days from the last meal.  I wish my local stores stocked that kind of stuff regularly, add a can per week and it adds up fast without much hit to the budget.  So anyways, it's always worth passing an eye over the clearance stacks...

I don't know if it's that great of a deal, but Mountain House is offering up to 25% off some of its items. I haven't had time to figure out the price and compare it elsewhere.

Attention North Texas folks...  

I found a link to some 310W solar modules for sale in the Allen, TX area.  These are not mine, though I may make a few of them mine.  I have no dog in this sale.

These may have been removed from a system, but they don't show signs of mounting that I can tell.  They're Polycrystalline 72-cell.  So figure 36V nominal.  Max temperature correct voltage on these in the Texas area would be about 51Vdc, so they'd be hard to use in a small off-grid system as a lot of cheap charge controllers can't handle a voltage that high.  Judging by what I'm reading, these are probably 2013 vintage.  Jinko Solar makes a good module.  He's asking $125/each, with deals for 5 or more.  At 40 cents/watt, that's not bad pricing.

ETA:  And they're gone.  Link to sale removed.

Any knife gurus out there?

Cold Steel Bushman on sale on Amazon for less than $15 shipped if you have prime.  They always interested me but not for $20+...  At this price they are in the basic "Mora" price range, and while they are probably no where near the same quality steel and edge they do offer some adaptability for various situations such as hunting or as a field expedient weapon.

I ordered a couple to play with this winter.
