I keep waiting for the Thermarest NeoAir Large to go on sale somewhere, but I've yet to see any decent sales. Am I looking in the wrong places? Or should I just wait a few more months until the new ones come out?Feb 25, 2011 at 11:01 am #1701507

…is to keep your eye on the Gear Swap forum (or on Whiteblaze.net) for folks looking to unload their new or hardly used NeoAir at a good price. I picked one up for less than $120 this way. Not a huge discount, but it wasn't retail – the lowest retail price I have seen for a Regular is $150.
Who knows, but if you can wait, you're bound to find a good deal when the new models come out. That could be as late as July, I hear. Best of luck to you!Feb 25, 2011 at 11:07 am #1701509

In the very least, REI's 20% off should be coming up in early to mid-March.Feb 25, 2011 at 11:18 am #1701514
Hey Curtis, I've got a NeoAir Large that I've been thinking about unloading but I wanted to wait until I had more info (user reports) on the NeoAir All-Season. My large only has about 5 nights of use but I discovered I need more R value when I camp in the fall.
Who knows, you might see a bunch offered on gear swap after the all-season version comes out.
Also, I may be dreaming but I think I remember some comments about an upcoming BPL State of the Market report on sleeping pads. Not sure when that's coming but hopefully soon.Feb 25, 2011 at 11:19 am #1701515
Is $119 good for a brand new Neo Air R?!?!
If it is, yes you are looking in the wrong place. Send me a PM.
Any size is available.Feb 25, 2011 at 11:19 am #1701516

You missed the Campsaver.com sale after Thanksgiving. That was the cheapest I've ever seen the Large.
Here's the best option I can come up with right now. OregonMountainCommunity has the Large 20% off. Go find the link to it. Then call Moosejaw.com. Moosejaw will match it and give you 10% of the sale price in moosejaw points, plus 1000 moosejaw points ( = $10) for finding it somewhere cheaper.
With all the discounts you will essentially be paying 132.50 plus getting 2132 moosejaw points. If you count the points as money, you will have only payed $111.18 for the pad and get free shipping.
Hope I mathed right.
Good luck.Feb 25, 2011 at 11:21 am #1701517
i was buying a prolite and searching around for the best discount, i noticed many stores do not apply discount/coupon codes to thermarest/cascade designs, like western mountaineering. rockcreek.com is 15% off everything i believe, code ' WELCOME443 ' add to it the extrabux, fatwallet, or mr rebates 4-5% rebate.
if you dont need it now you might be good waiting.
oh and basegear.com is 20% off for just joining mailing list, not sure if it applies to thermarest
also one on gear trade from backcountry, brand new just without tags

Basegear's discount does apply…that's how I bought my neoair regular.Feb 25, 2011 at 11:42 am #1701526
The one on geartrade is offered at a good price. I think you get 72 hours to inspect and confirm it is truly in the condition they offer it at.Feb 25, 2011 at 11:43 am #1701527

My fault for not checking. They have had them 20% off since Christmas. I thought they still were.
