PAT COM REAL DEAL: The Patagonia Down Vest at Altrec.com
Altrec.com is having a pretty good sale right now. Some of their items, including Patagonia, are going for around 30% off. Ah, but here's the kicker: through the magic of internet coupons, you can get more taken off. So my Pat Com Real Deal is the much sought-after Patagonia Down Vest (reviewed by Patagonia Community) in the toughest color to get--black. As of this posting, Altrec has black in all sizes (S-XL). It's regularly $145 but it's on sale for $99.97. Shipping is free for orders over $49, and there's no sales tax unless you're ordering from Washington state. Here's where the Real Deal comes in: enter the code 15WINTER09 (until February 26) and you get an additional 15% off. So your out-the-door cost for the $145 Patagonia Down Vest is $84.97.
You might be saying, "That's a real deal." No Johnny, that's a PAT COM REAL DEAL! Okay, feel free to slap me.
