Don't try to find it in the store, they will ship it to you for free

We founf it in WM ok....but had to look around as it was not where you would expect it. Even the WM sales help said it was out of stock. He did not have a clue.

I filled it with ice cubes this morning and it still has ice left for my ice tea tonight. Started off with ice tea, the added two cans of diet coke and now ice tea again all with the same ice. It has been inside, outside in 90 degree heat, sitting in the hot car for an hour while shopping and then back outside while working on the CT. There is about 1/2 of the original ice left.

I am declaring it a "success". But the real test will come tomorrow at Tear Drop City when I pour a beer into it.

Let's hope they don't go the way off the "Waffle Dog" makers :thinking: .....prices were forced up by demand. :(

Brian, you are correct. I may go back and get some for Gifts or maybe one for our Tear Drop City White Elephant Sale or Silent Auction. This should be interesting. :thinking: :thumbsup:

Amazon.com sells Ozark Trail Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Tumblers too. Though Amazon's price is higher than WM.

To make it easier to use the tumbler in the car I ordered a GLO Handle from Amazon. Kinda odd that a handle costs more than the tumbler. Amazon has a big choice of handles to fit tumblers.

My Walmart had them in the back near the camping stuff, right next to the ammo. Very convenient!

Yes, the camping area. Two stores today had shelves full of them. Going to buy several for Christmas gifts.

OK, that's where I was looking. I guess my Walmart didn't have any.

I bought 2 of these Contigo tumblers from Wal Mart. One is a 20 oz. with a handle and this one is 24 oz. without. They are just a good as my Yeti and I like that I can snap the drink hole closed and it doesn't spill one drop. It cost $14.00 and was well worth it.

Also, the 30 oz. Ozark Trail tumbler is $9.74 online at Wal Mart. They can't keep the OT's in stock in the store and the 20 oz. is out of stock online. It doesn't cost anything to ship to the store to pick up. Also, there are handles on Amazon for them or your Yeti (30 oz.) for sale for $7.45. This still puts this cup cheaper than the Yeti by almost half. You can also order the lids that close. 143647
