RTIC Coolers Pre-Order - YETI clone at Half the price

+7 Deal Score
104,212 Views
Saw a link to this on Facebook and thought if their claims of being just as good (or better) as a Yeti cooler, and hold true to their volume, unlike the Yeti counter parts, they're worth a shot.

Two color options available now, white and tan, and three sizes: 20quart, 45quart and 65quart. They are claiming to start shipping in 60-90 days, though. But, offer free shipping, 90 day returns, and a 7 year warranty, and No Tax in most states (tax in Texas, I know for sure because their headquarters are in Houston, TX).

Links:

20 Quart in White - $124.99

20 Quart in Tan - $124.99

45 Quart in White - $174.99
https://www.rticcoolers.com/shop/...C-45-White

45 Quart in Tan - $174.99
https://www.rticcoolers.com/shop/...TIC-45-Tan

65 Quart in White - $199.99
https://www.rticcoolers.com/shop/...C-65-White

65 Quart in Tan - $199.99
https://www.rticcoolers.com/shop/...TIC-65-Tan

P.S. - I have absolutely no affiliation with this company what so ever. Just thought it might be a good deal for some.

I cannot find one review on these. They've never been produced. Their youtube channel is a joke!

Everything is Pre-Order?

By pre-ordering products, you are authorizing RTIC Coolers LLC to charge your credit card or PayPal account for an amount equal to the purchase price and any applicable sales tax.

Pre-orders will be fulfilled based on the order in which they are received. We estimate your order to ship within 60 to 90 days from the date you place your pre-order. Please note that these shipping dates are only an estimate and are subject to change without notice. If this shipping date estimate changes we will update you via email.

RTIC Coolers LLC limited 7-Year warranty and 90-day return policy starts when the item is delivered to you.

You may cancel your pre-order any time for any reason prior to shipment and receive a full refund. Your refund will be processed within 3 business days of your request but may take an additional 1 - 5 days to show up on your credit card statement.

Eh, I bit. Been wanting a Yeti for years. Do a lot of out and about and occasional competition Q. Seen a lot of Yeti's out and about and have been dying to get one. Can't justify the cost, but for half the price, why not? If I hate it, I'll send it back, and use the funds to pay for half a yeti. thanks for the heads up, and thumbs up for you.

I put in a pre-order, but I heard a comment on their Facebook page they have some in stock at their warehouse in Houston. I'm going to give them a call and see if I can pick up my pre-order in person instead. If i am able to, I'll post an update.

sweet, would love to hear your thoughts. I paid with my Amex through paypal, figure if they're scamming I have 2 pretty decent layers of protection. best case scenario, I got a comparable yeti for half price. worst case, I spent 200 bucks on a turd. not the first time I will have wasted a couple bucks trying to save a couple bucks. Probably not the last.

Yeah, I'm a bit skeptical about the pay now get product who knows when, also. Some on their comments say pre-orders are shipping end of September through mid-October. We'll see.

Its about time someone did what Yeti was doing.

You can only sell a molded piece of plastic for $500 for so long before others jump in and compete.

Surprised none of the big boys haven't jumped in yet...or have they?

THIS! And there are no real reviews of this product...no one even owns one! I'll wait and see if it lives up to the hype. They've been advertising these on Facebook for a long time and they have pushed the delivery dates back a few times...not worth me putting my money up for something that doesn't even exist yet.

I confirmed this afternoon via email they do not have stock for sale at their Houston warehouse, only production samples for viewing.

I did find a link to a pseudo-review in a forum:

http://texags.com/forums/34/topic...7#43690977

No word on its performance, just a fit and finish.

I guess I'll just wait and see what/when/ anything shows up on the front porch in a few weeks while they fulfill their pre-orders.

Right? I'm not paying yeti's price. I'm not paying this price. My igloo will work just fine.
