Kong coolers is having a 15% off sitewide weekend sale. Free shipping over $50 and my state (IL) does not have sales tax. Discount is automatically added to cart.

Kong makes and sells direct rotomolded coolers that in many ways are better than industry leaders like Yeti, Orca and RTiC. The comparable prices are in some cases lower than prices of recent REI Yeti deal on seafoam colored coolers. I have two Kong Coolers and could not be more happy with them. I have been subscribed to their email for 9 months now and this is the best deal they have run.

Kong 25 - $186.15 [kongcoolers.com]
Kong 50 - $228.65 [kongcoolers.com]
Kong 70 - $262.65 [kongcoolers.com]
Kong 110 - $339.15 [kongcoolers.com]
Accessories & Bundles for more savings [kongcoolers.com]

Below is a comparison these prices to recent REI front page deal on Seafoam colored Yeti Coolers at REI. Both deals have/had free shipping. The Kong deal also may have no sales tax in your state.

18.9 liters - $149.89 - YETI Roadie 20 Hard Cooler (Seafoam)
23.9 liters - $186.15 - Kong 25 (Any Color)
28.2 liters - $187.39 - YETI Tundra 35 Hard Cooler (Seafoam)
32.9 liters - $224.89 - YETI Tundra 45 Hard Cooler (Seafoam)
51.2 liters - $228.65 - Kong 50 (Any Color)
57.6 liters - $262.39 - YETI Tundra 65 Hard Cooler (Seafoam)
68.1 liters - $262.65 - Kong 70 (Any Color)
110.9 liters - $339.15 - Kong 110 (Any Color)


(For the liters of capacity I used the value on the REI website for Yeti. For Kong I calculated the liters from the internal dimensions listed on their website. My calculations align with their product numbering system.)

I used a 15% coupon code that was emailed to me about 2-3 weeks ago. These prices are pretty in line with them and the cheapest I've seen KONG coolers thus far. Yes the coupon code gave me free shipping . These USA made rotomolded coolers are very high quality, great ice retention and have some accessories that are pretty useful (check out the website for more info on bottle opener , cutting Tray/divider etc). Compared to other high end coolers on the market, Kong does hold up right there with them and I think is the new contender. There's some YouTube videos out there if you want more details. I bought the tan KONG 25 and are pretty happy so far.

Well the price is lower than a front-page deal for a product with better features.

Quote from GringoBling :
Price is better, yes. But this is a knockoff Yeti, so the price should absolutely be better.
These perform better than Yeti, are more durable, are made in USA, and cheaper. How is it a knock off?

I also grabbed one of the 70 qt. Did a lot of research and this seems to be the best cooler per dollar for the high-end coolers, considering ice time, durability, price, and features. Thanks OP.

Also, after all the reviews I watched, this does not seem to be another Yeti knockoff like Rtic, etc. There are significant differences between Kong and Yeti, and from what I have seen they went back to the drawing board and have improved on what Yeti offers.

Is there a promo code for this? If not, I believe it's dead.
