Why a $20 water bottle? - Page 2

post #21 of 88
Yay for the coupon code. I already had my order figured out and was just waiting for DH to hand over the credit card... now we were able to get it for $15 less!

Yay! I was finally able to sway my husband to make the switch even for himself. The $20 savings pushed him over the edge, I'm clearing the cupboard of our plastic bottles today.

Just wanted to add that I use my Kleen Kanteen bottle everyday all day long - even when we're at home. It's an easy way to evaluate how much water I"m drinking and with small children around I don't have to worry about spills, plus at night it's nice to have something to drink from that has a cap for those middle of the night thirsty moments. I have them filled for the kids at the start of the day and they just grab and drink whenever they want. Sometimes I draw fun pictures of whatever my littlest one is into (right now ladybugs) with a sharpy on the stainless steel - it lasts a few days and he loves it - extra encouragement to keep hydrated!

Yea! I saved $11 with the coupon code....and we got 3 KK's, One KK Sippy Cap, and a lunch tote for $56 shipped! The Klean Kanteen's are on sale for anyone looking at those.

Thanks Vickie, we saved $15 on one water bottle for each of our family too. Ugh, I am SO CHEAP I hate to spend the money, but hopefully they last a long time and are worth it in the long run.

i'm so glad to hear the coupon code is still working and so many are taking advantage of it!

we really love our kleen kanteens! maybe i should get back over there and use that coupon code on another order before it expires!

I bought a bunch of New Wave Enviro bottles that were colored and the colored coating flakes off and gets everywhere! I dont think that is very safe, unless you can get all of the coating off, which I have not been able to do. Grrr, so just a heads up.

We use Klean Kanteens, adn I love them. At home, we drink out of glass, but I have a few KK's for each of us that I fill with RO water and store in teh fridge. My kids use 12oz or 18oz, and I use a 27oz or 40oz.

My 8yo is having a Bday party this weekend. Instead of the traditional goodie bag, we're decorating KK's with paint pens, adn each girl will take theirs home.

wow. I've had mine for a while now, and I use them daily, even dropped and dented one, and I haven't had that happen at all.

I do this with assorted brands of iced tea.

The only thing to watch out for is that I'm not allowed to bring glass into certain gov't buildings that have security guards (such as the social services building). Last time I went to DSS to deal with paperwork stuff, I ended up throwing out (not recycling) a perfectly good glass bottle (I could have left it in my car but I was parked too far from the entrance and I simply wasn't up to the extra walking that day) and had to purchase a plastic bottle of water from a vending machine so I'd have my water for the day. A stainless steel bottle wouldn't have been a problem.

Good idea! I'll have to remember that the next time we do a bday party.

subbing for the coupon code
post #36 of 88
SIGG also always seems to have coupon codes (for mysigg.com). I just googled for it and found a 30% off code when I was buying some.

Although, FTR, I think I like my Kleen Kanteen better. Although I do really like the SIGG coffee mug!

Bumping to say damn damn damn! By the time I had my little paycheck was deposited all the 18 oz klean kanteens were gone. Now Dh and I have one but not the kids. I'm bummed.

sorry to butt in here...but anyone know if you can travel (air) with your sigg/kk? it has been a couple years since i have flown and you were able to bring food/water with you...
this is the only thread i have found while searching for the answer...thank you

I'm thinking no... You can't even take a plastic water bottle past the initial security check. Or any liquid over 3oz for that matter. I bet you might be able to pack it empty in your carry-on and then fill it once you get past that security check... but I'm not 100% sure on that. I've flown twice in the past few months...out of 4 different airports...and they are all very particular. I learned the less you bring - the better.
