I, uh, realized after I titled this post that it kinds of looks like I’m talking about something which is not a tent. Like, maybe an octopus! Or something else. Whoops? (And yet, I am too lazy to change it.)

Anyway! Today’s Big Steal at Meijer is a 15′ x 15′ Northpole tent with three rooms. According to Meijer, this tent normally goes for $200 and today’s deal is that it’s just $135 and ships free. (There’s also coupon code BLUESKY for an extra 15% off almost everything, but I haven’t been able to figure out if you can use it on Big Steal items.)

That seemed like a pretty good deal to me, so I went looking on Amazon for a price comparison, and discovered that either it’s a crazy good deal or the gerbils who power the inner workings of Amazon’s pricing structure are smoking crack again. See for yourself—Amazon is selling this same tent for $689. So… there’s that.

(I doubt this is a $700 tent, obviously. Still a good deal at 33% off, though!)


  1. Even though I don’t need a tent, I’m glad I clicked through because HOLY COW, “White Shoulders”. My mom wore that perfume when I was a kid! I didn’t even know they made that anymore. Here I am, learning something new every day!

  2. I did wonder if someone was selling an octopus. 😉

  3. LOL! I don’t need a tent, but I went and checked out the link anyway, and THEN came back here to say something about White Shoulders! You can go camping AND smell like a little old lady, AT THE SAME TIME!!

  4. We kind of need a tent, since we lent our old one to my brother and got it back without the poles. Sigh…. So I asked my husband about this one, thinking it might be too big. His response was, “Well, it is bigger than our bedroom, so it might be a bit large.” I can just picture us fighing as we tried to put that monstrosity up. LOL!! It looks really nice, though. The porch would be nice.
