Firefighters are the cheapest guys I know. Well, maybe the second cheapest. Cops are probably the cheapest, they don't get as much OT and they are too used to getting a little "love" from the local restaurants. Firefighters usually are cheap in order to save a few bucks, amass their savings and then spend the money on toys or on their four days and six days.
I know guys that will spend a week researching something, just to safe a buck or two on a minor purchase. The amazing thing is, that when they are sitting around the kitchen table, bragging about what a great deal they got on something, there is ALWAYS another guy who will have topped it and gotten an even better deal.
I found something that just might make it harder for that other guy at the kitchen table to beat your deal. Daily 911 Deals is a web site that offers fire, police and ems stuff at a deep discount. They make deals with manufacturers and suppliers to obtain large quantities of merchandise at a deep discount, then pass the savings on to us.
They just went live a few hours ago, and posted the first "deal". It's for one of those fleece "job" shirts, one with canvas elbow patches and a canvas collar. It's from Game Sportswear and it's made in the U.S. We call 'em extreme winter parkas where I come from, we can wear them any time it gets really cold and the temperature drops below 65 degrees.
They are blowing 50 of them out at 1/2 off regular price for only a few days. I think it works out to $34. I already have three of them, or I'd be jumping all over this deal. Well, that and the fact that I only have a few shifts left.
Actually, as I paid for two of them (a helluva a lot more than $34 I might add) and I'm kyping a third from the special team that I am on, I plan on keeping them and wearing them this winter when I am out shootong pics for Hometown, Local and the Kinda big Fire protection District. I will be warm and fashionable!
Stop by the site and check out the deal. I don't think it can be topped.
