By now, you've probably heard of Groupon, the website where discount coupons are available for sale. The business model here is volume - the more they sell, the better deal they can give.
This is apparently the idea behind a new gun-related website, GearHog. This site went live on July 19, and sold a couple of thousand $50 coupons for Brownell's for $25 each.
Today and yesterday they've been selling $100 gift certificates to USA Ammo for $50. You may remember I reviewed this ammo some time back and found it to be very good for my needs.
Well, I decided if I could buy this ammo at half price, it would be even better, so I bit, and bought a certificate. Then I went to the USA Ammo site and bought 500 rounds of 115 grain FMJ 9mm. When I combined that with a 50% discount on shipping (enter MOREAMMO as the code at checkout), I used the certificate, and added $4 and change.
I'll report back on my experience once the ammo shows up, but so far, so good.
I'll also report on any other good deals I hear of from GearHog.
