I want it, problem is it would go on a credit card. I don't have cash on hand and the sale ends in two days. It seems to be the best deal on bulk mountain house I can find. I would'nt have a problem paying it off in a year or so but it would be hard to choke down the price. Is the price of this stuff ever going down? I have other food stores but this is hard to resist. It's even harder because my wife seems to think the stuff is cool and wouldn't mind ordering it. She tried a pouch for dinner tonight and thought it tastes pretty good for what it is. One one hand I know I could buy much more other stuff for this price, on the other it's very convenient and wouldn't need to be rotated/eaten for a very long time. What are your thoughts? Is this sale the best I'm going to find on Freeze dried food these days?

I believe that mountain house is still on sale at beprepared.com and maybe at epicenter as well 20-25% off. theepicenter.com has gourmet reserves as well 10% using the code 337312

Actually ...

Our current sale prices for Mountain House food is the lowest allowable (as enforced by Oregon Freeze Dry)--25% off.

In addition, right now we are also issuing rebate vouchers for bulk purchases that our buyers club members make. (A one-time $19 membership fee.) A 35-case purchase gets a $500 voucher back for subsequent purchases in our store--use it toward anything except for MH cans. An 8-case purchase gets a $120 voucher.

Lastly--everything in our store always ships free to the lower 48.

Nice forum here, by the way. I'll have to hang out from time to time. :thumb:

I'm going to take the contrary view. I'd say putting 5K on a credit card during an economic recession that could turn into a depression is a bad idea. That's why I'm buying beans and rice.....

While I have been extremely tempted to grab some cases of MH for their simplicity, I would not advocate spending money you don't have. The ONLY advantage I see to pre-packaged stuff like MH is simple convenience; you can put it in deep storage and forget about it. I don't think that's worth the cost of going into debt.

IMO the most likely incidents that would require food reserves (blackouts, etc.) only put you a few days to a week without store access. I'd hate to have to crack open pricey, 30-year space food because of a week-long blizzard or a two day blackout. Since you mentioned you already have some food stores, why not compromise and buy a case or two now? You won't get that 25% deal, but how much interest are you going to pay while dealing with that $5000 bill? And that puts a strain on your finances, leaving you with less financial flexibility.

Buying something on credit at a discount just means you are going into a little less debt when you buy it. You don't save money by spending money. I will likely get a case or two of MH for the convenience, but not until I have a stash of conventional food built up first.
