NEW YORK (MainStreet) - Sometimes I come across a deal that’s so good, it doesn’t matter that it’s not something I actually need. Today’s deal of the day at DailySteals.com certainly falls into that category: a 7-in-1 Survival Camping Tool for $6.99, a savings of 91% off the original price of $79.99.
Now, I’m not much of a camper myself. I last went camping about six years ago, and it’s not really an experience I’m looking to repeat any time soon. But a deal like this is almost too good to pass up. For $7 you get seven tools: a hatchet, spade, saw, hammer, bottle opener, wrench and compass. From the picture it looks like there are also some matches, nails, and fishing line. You’re getting a lot of bang for your buck, and if you ever wind up lost in the woods or stranded on a desert island, you’ll be glad you got it.
Of course, if you’re like me, you’ll probably only wind up using the bottle opener. And if you’re envisioning getting it for a Lost-type scenario, keep in mind that the Transportation Security Administration probably won’t let you put it in your carry-on luggage. But if you think you might get some use out of it anyway, make sure you get it by the end of the day since this deal expires at midnight on the East Coast.
