Anyone know where I can get a good deal on a normal cooler? I don't need a bear proof one or anything fancy, just a normal one to keep beers in for the cottage, thanks!

NEW ... watch HOT DEALS FORUM
Or the Flyers on Flipp
Camping Supplies typically go on sale starting May 1st
For the big lead in to Victoria Day in Canada ... and Memorial Day Weekend in the USA
The two markers to begin Camping Season officially

USED ... if it’s just for drinks ... cans or bottles
And not so much for food
Then NEW isn’t as big a deal IMO
(Doesn’t have to be super clean etc)

Look for USED ones for sale on the likes of Kijiji or at Yard / Garage Sales
Every year people buy a bunch of stuff to start camping
And every year there are always those that discover it ain’t for them
They don’t like it
They prefer the comforts of home, a cottage, or a cushy motel room
Vs the great outdoors with unpredictable weather, bugs
And Mother Nature

Used Coolers are therefore a dime a dozen
When folks get around to cleaning out their garages

You have to keep in mind that their online stuff is usually marked up a bit to cover shipping, since everything on the Costco site has 'free shipping'. This is a large 25 pound cooler. Shipping is easily worth the $40 extra they're charging to buy online.

I have this cooler and it's fantastic. Roto molded, very rugged and easily performs as well as Yeti. The only downside is you can fit so many beverages in it that it becomes very difficult to lift. The cooler itself is heavy when empty.

Love it, buy it if you can.

Nothing to do with enticing anyone to the warehouse. Shipping cost went up this year (partly due to covid/more people shopping online) so the difference between instore/online pricing is bound to increase.

That’s doesn’t explain how shipping works with other vendors like Walmart, Amazon. It’s possible that Costco delivery has not kept pace and is more expensive. But if you buy a bunch of items, they really need to find a way to amortize costs. Otherwise any rational person will want to go in store.

Not this year. Tents, Camping stoves, Coolers. The second hand market is the highest it's ever been. I was looking for a rooftop tent, they're sold out everywhere. no decent brands available used anywhere either.
I had a couple of ultralight items from 8-10 years ago. I ended up selling them on Marketplace for what I bought them for price wise.

I wanted a good rotomolded cooler. I was looking at Yeti, but people are asking for near MRSP on marketplace.
I ended up buying this cooler. It's a big one, but for $150, it's not going to be around for long.

Camping gear this year, is very much the "work out equipment" of last.

I bought one of these last year and it’s unreal. Little on the heavy side especially once full but you’re not going to find better bang for your buck

Bought this cooler last year and no regrets. Was eyeing a Yeti, but this was 1/4 the price and worth every penny. It's heavy and needs 2 people to carry when full, but it's lasted for 5 day camping trips before needing an ice refill. Keeping my eyes peeled for the smaller version at Costo.

I've seen it at the Still Creek location.

Yes, it's roto-molded

Order from Lifetime directly. They'll still charge you $199.99 but they'll give you "free" shipping.

It's blow molded. The result is slightly thinner plastic shell so not as bomb proof as the roto-molded ones, but I still have no problems standing on mine.
