Gear Talk Site of the Month: Gearburger.com

If you're like me, you've probably spent countless hours online looking for good gear deals.  Now, Gearburger does the work for you.  It just doesn't get any easier than this.  Select the type of gear you're interested in, and Gearburger will scour dozens of sites like REI, Altrec, Moosejaw, etc. and alert you by email when it's found a deal on what you're interested in.  You can specify which brands you're interested in too so if you're not a fan of a particular brand, you can deselect it.  You can even tell it the minimum discount you want.  So if you're only interested in mega deals, just set your minimum to 75% off, sit back, and wait! No more hearing about an awesome deal from someone on the forums after it's too late!


The site is still relatively new but definitely growing.  I think it is going to turn into something big and if you're an early adopter like me, you will see the potential here.

So instead of checking Steep and Cheap 50 times a day, you might want to give Gearburger a try.  I have no idea what their name means or what the heck that logo is supposed to be, but I think Gearburger is a great idea and is going to soon become a gear addict's best friend.  Oh yeah, did I mention it's free?

Hmm... it looks like the Android App was deleted a month ago...

Hey Jeff,
Look like you're right. I've updated my post. Thanks for catching that.

Thanks for the post Jason! We did delete the android app - it was based on a previous iteration with functionality we had to stop supporting. Hope you guys like the site!

This looks like it is going to save me a ton of time. I think I'll be able to spend more time outside now that I no longer need to be a gear deal hound.

This is pretty cool. I'll have to use this.
I've been having trouble finding inexpensive gear. I don't see why I should have to be rich to sleep outdoors. This will certainly help.

If you're still interested in featuring gear sites, I have a suggestion. I found this one just a few days ago, geartrade.com. People can sell used gear, or stuff stores just couldn't sell (I wear XS clothes, and there's not a lot of demand for that,) and it's all usually pretty cheap. You might also like it to sell your own old gear. It's cheap and it's green. I like it.
