Discounts for Boy Scouts

alps-200x148Q: I actually don’t have a question. Just wanted to tell fellow Boys’ Life readers that Alps Mountaineering gives all Boy Scouts a 45 percent discount off list price on outdoor equipment on their website.
–Barry the Bargain Hunter, Louisville, KY

A: Everybody loves to save cash on gear. And Barry is exactly right, guys. Alps sells good quality backpacks, tents and sleeping bags and gives Scouts a savings of 45 percent off their normal retail prices. You can check out their stuff at or go straight to their Scouts-only website at The good old fashion phone works too, if that’s more your speed: 1-800-344-2577.

      Gander Mountian will give you a 10% discount if you show your scout ID card. Cabella’s as well if you bring in the troop check book.
