MONSTER Mountain House Buy CLOSED-Still Great Pricing Tho!

    I wasn't going to be doing another Mountain House group buy for at least a few more weeks, but I just realized how to do some absolutely monstrous money-saving deals ... I just could not contain myself.

    Mountain House is offering some preseason/in-season incentives, to include FREE SHIPPING if the order meets minimum guidelines. (Including to Hawaii and Alaska!!) EDIT: I need to revise this a bit--to get free shipping to Hawaii and Alaska, the order needs to be about 50% larger than the standard deal listed/linked below. By the way, anyone can add on to this package if desired.

    SO, here's the deal we can do ... and on this we CAN do substitutions, though pricing will have to be tweaked.

    MHouse deal on Ebay DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE

    I just lowered the price on this package in my store by $200. I had sold several of these for well over $1000, including shipping costs ... and that was still below the retail value of the food. (DO NOT make a purchase thru my store if you want this special pricing.)

    Anyway, the new discounted regular price in my store for Tom, Dick, and Harriet is $789 for 48 #10 cans ... eight cases of the six best-selling foods of 2005. MSRP of the 48 cans--$1181 (not including shipping).

    For this buy, for Survivalmonkeys, the price is $649 ... no extra for shipping, no extra for Paypal payments.

    And not only that, your order will ship direct to you from Mountain House! So your wait will be pretty short.

    The only catch is that when I place your order (which I will do as soon as I receive it), they want at least 7 days to process it before shipment.

    If you want substitutions, let me know before making payment.

    Paypal payment can be sent to

    Cashiers checks and money orders can be made out to Safecastle LLC ...

    Man JC.. That's the best MH deal I've seen yet. [winkthumb]
    How long will this be open?
    I'll be in again

    [center:00276a0d08]Most agree that Mountain House is the best you can get in the area of freeze-dried, long-term storage food. These unopened six-can cases are as fresh as they can be, delivered to you straight from the Mountain House factory. Independent critics agree that the food tastes delicious whether eaten now or decades down the road.

    Just add water and heat (or can be eaten without being heated).

    This 8-case (6 cans per case) package consists of 522 servings--providing needed nutrients to fully satisfy you and your loved ones in times of difficulty, or incorporated as a part of your everyday diet.

    Contents include the eight Best-Selling Mountain House Foods of 2005:

    7 entree cases
    Rice & Chicken
    Chili Mac
    Hearty Beef Stew
    Beef Stroganoff
    Lasagna w/ Meat Sauce
    Chicken Teriyaki

    1 breakfast case
    Precooked Eggs w/ Bacon

    I'm pretty well stocked with MH otherwise I'd get in on this. Gotta be the deal of the century......

    JC....I can't believe a couple of posts on another board. Your offering the best deal they will ever see and they post that crap. What a couple of morons....

    Hi GR. It comes with the territory. People will take potshots at anybody who presents a profile long enough.

    On this buy ... yesterday I was authorized by Mountain House to make substantial discounts and free shipping offers for just about any sizable order you might care to make ... and this is good only thru March. So after that, it's back to normal pricing.

    If there is any moderate to large quantity of cans or pouches you are interested in purchasing, now is the time to do it ... let me know and I'll give you an unbeatable quote.

    Cool. I know of a few sitting on the FoodStuff fence right now. This is the buy to take advantage of.

    Hell, you could turn it on Ebay for more than this..... [raspberry]

    JC Refuge, What can you do on the 150 can 25 case one you show on your website. or can you only sale price the 48 cans.

    I would be interested in the 150. There is only one item on there that doesn't interest me and that's the blueberry cheesecake. Any other deserts available?

    Hi Chemical Gal. I'm glad you asked. I can send that 150-can (25 cases) deal your way this month for $2100. Free shipping. That's a very large discount and unfortunately the prices will have to go back up April 1.

    How does Raspberry Crumble sound in place of the Blueberry Cheesecake?

    QUick Update.

    In the past week We have oopened and tried a few things from a past buy. Figured it a good idea to use on of the Just in Case boxes as a tester.

    Have opened and eaten the:

    Turkey Tetrazzini
    Granola with Milk and Blueberries
    Scrambled Eggs w/ Bacon
    Sweet and sour Pork with Rice.

    All passed the Wife and Daughter test... as well [winkthumb]

    I wrote you a couple weeks back about getting a couple of your 150 can "family of 4" deals. I haven't been able to get into my monkey mail and I want to place an order. Can you PM me the prices or post them here so I can place my order. Thanks.

    150-can, 25-case deal

    Hi Clyde. Here's the link to the deal of which you speak. Your discounted price is $2100, so obviously you should not make the purchase in the store.

    Email me at or pm me here with questions.

    This just in ... order fulfillment from Mountain House is now at two months.

    They tell me that they have a pile of my orders that have backordered product. They're putting together a list for me of the specifics, and when I get that info, I will be able to tell those of you who have ordered where you stand.

    Please note--I am unable to get tracking info from Mountain House even when they do ship product, so patience becomes the keyword now.

    What can I say? A little Katrina deja vu for those of who recall the amount of time it took to get product this past fall. Demand is high right now ... I'm just surprised that we have come to this point so fast.

    All that said ... the pricing deal remains in place. Prices are going back up April 1. You can still get in on the specials and free shipping by placing your order this month. Order whatever you want and just keep in mind that it will now be a couple of months before delivery will take place.

    I'm advertising this deal in several locations and response has been phenomenal. Thanks to those of you here who have bought in already. Just a reminder that the deal deadline is March 31.

    Mountain House was totally out of stock as of this past Wednesday due to a huge demand spike (read into that what you will). They are now working overtime and pulling out all the stops to do huge production runs to get everyone their orders within several weeks' time--the last foods to be delivered no later than mid-May, they say.
