Default Found a good deal?

Thought this would be an interesting thread to create, just to give heads up to other members about a deal you found.

For example, right now in Canadian Tire they have Buck 311 Kingsman knives for only $10. Nothing special about the knife except for the price, really. Seems like a no-brainer to me, so I grabbed a couple for myself.







Also, I am not Buck fan and do not follow their line-ups and whatnot, but this is the first Buck knife I see that was made in China. I only have a few older Bucks that were definitely made in the US. For ten bucks though, this one seems to be fairly well made though

I carry an anger management knife too lol. Usually its over of the several I've been given by different companies over the years. They're perfect for it.

Thanks for the heads up on cheap folders. I'm in the market for a couple cheap pocket knives for my boys for the summer.

I agree - great knife to do that coarse dirty work you need a knife to do sometimes but don't want to break out your $120 Benchmade on.

This could be a great thread (maybe even get a sticky) if we keep the editorials out of it and keep posting deals.

Just saw that Stihl has the MS170 on sale rig now for $199. Not a smoking deal, but a pretty good price for an "around the acreage" or quad saw

If you have an old receipt from Cabela's and go do the survey online you get $20 off a purchase of $150 or more, only takes 2 minutes. Not fantastic savings but I got 20 bucks off a set of rings and bases today so I'm happy.

Well, did the survey AND I did receive the $20 coupon. The sad thing for me is that it cannot be used for an online purchase

I will be in town the second weekend of July and if I do not use it (doubt I will), someone on here is welcome to have the coupon.

I'll play. Costco has a lot of unadvertised sales every week, I don't go every week so I missed a lot. This guy goes into the store early in the week and photographs the tags on the weekly sales. I know there are a lot of Costco shoppers here so someone might find the link useful.

Walmart (at least our Walmart) has mulch for $3 per bag. Not sure if they give rain checks for it though.

A friend at a local edmonton dealer that sells louisiana grills hooked me up with a pretty sweet deal.

Free cover, free 40lb bag of pellets, free local delivery and 5% off the price on any of their bbq smokers till sunday. They had lots of other napoleon bbq sales that i didnt care about.

Another forum member took advantage of this already. Thought id mention in case anyone else wants to reach out to him.
