This Elite Large Fully Stocked GI Issue Medic First Aid Kit Bag is usually about $130, but Amazon has it for only about $29 + shipping.  I'm not sure how long this deal will last, but it's worth looking into.

I'm seeing it for $129 which is listed as $100 off.  For $29 I'd grab it in a heartbeat.

It's been going back and forth from $28.64 + $9.14 shipping to $129.99 and then back down all day.  Keep checking and it should come down again.

That was a sweet deal for about 15 minutes before they caught it. I went to amazon right after this was posted and sure enough, $29 pls $18 shipping. I saved it until I got back to the shop, since I was out driving initially. I tried to complete the order then, and shipping went from $18 to $126.

Oh Well, the quick and the dead

That's great CharlesH!  Glad to hear you were able to get this great deal.  Surprisingly, the price is still low.  Maybe someone else can snag it too.  I might buy another one at this price.

Yep, I see it now for $28. Sent it onto Z. He just ordered 2. One for each house and 3 little smaller ones for the vehicles.
Thanks for posting this.

Someone else I told suggested that some of the items might be close to pull date which is why they dropped it $200. Which is no big deal in most cases.

I knew there must be a catch, but the bag alone should be worth the price.  Anything in it is just a bonus.

  Agreed.  How long do we keep gauze and bandages in our homes?  Some of the liquid stuff may go out of date shortly, but most of it will also last longer than its expiration I bet.

It's missing some items that should be in there, like airways, tourniquets, BP cuff, etc., but if you're starting with nothing, it's a solid start for bandages, dressing and a bag.  I'd also add saline wash, hydrogen peroxide, cold packs, emergency glucose, cloth tape and a proper pocket mask.  Still, adding these items will still be a lot cheaper than trying to find a kit with it all already put together.

Yes and it will.. but who cares.. they will stay good.. But legally they cannot sell it outdated.

As of 5:30 p.m Friday, it is $28.64 + $9.14 for shipping from Best Service Stores. If you go for free shipping through Amazon Prime fulfillment, it is $128 or more, no shipping charge.

But, there is something fishy here. I put two in my shopping cart. The shipping charges jumped to $134.77 per item.

I am passing for now.

Did you know that Amazon's prices change a lot on some products, and you can monitor the prices of specific products on CamelCamelCamel.com.  You can even receive email alerts when the price drops to whatever price you want to pay.  Here is the price history of the FAK we've been watching today:

The price and shipping has been changing all day, but Amazon has the charges clearly marked.  You have to be careful and look at both price and shipping before ordering.  See this screenshot...

I got my email confirmation from Amazon for the $37 and change price.  I had $9 in my account from a gift card and it took that for part of the charge so I am confident I dealt through Amazon.

I just started watching this item 15 minutes ago.  It was $129 with free shipping for the first 10 minutes (with 12 items in stock) and now it is $130 with free shipping with only 2 items in stock.  I'll keep watching.  Hopefully it will come back down before they sell the last 2!
