For a long time now, I've had "camping lantern" on my list of household goods to acquire. With forecasts of impending storms, and some surprise storms, we've lost power for a total of 2-3 weeks, yes WEEKS over the course of the past year. Emergency preparedness has remained on my mind, it's the Girl Scout in me. : )
I've searched Walmart, not my favorite option, as well as camping sites, and not really found anything to my liking.
Today, I received my $10.05 shipping refund from returning kidlet's backpack in exchange for a new one from L L Bean. I also received an email with a 10% off everything promotion thru July 10th-Ok, time to take a look.
I have ordered the above lantern, normally $59.95 plus tax this would normally be a $63.75 item but taking advantage of the 10% off promotion, applying my $10.05 refund, I got it down to $47.33 out the door, including free shipping. Saving $16.42 was nice.
This is scheduled to arrive in just a few days. I'll be happy to write this off of my list.
