Where is your favorite place to buy MREs?

As I've been browsing the internet of things, I'm finding you can buy MREs all over the place.

Any particular place your favorite or that you recommend over the other?

Any place not in poll you'd recommend?

I’ve had great experiences with both MREmountain and ForeignMRE. Last Christmas I ordered a couple from each and had not a single problem, would recommend.

Completing my first couple orders through the forum today so let’s see how it goes!

It's interesting. I wonder what the benefit of buying on Ebay Vs Amazon. There are no votes for Amazon. Is there better variety on Ebay?

If you're willing to take the risk, pricing can be a ton better on ebay. Cutting out the middle man also saves you the markup they have to charge for shipping 2 ways.

Benefit of amazon is that the rations are usually already stateside.

My favorite place? My local surplus store. Keeping it local is awesome.... check around for a store near you! Mine is owned by a vietnam vet with his family and he's super cool, Helping guys like that even if the price is a few bucks more is worth it.

In New England the only surplus store is now selling five year old MREs for 14 bucks each. I left them an email and let them know they could have made thousands of dollars off of me per year but since he wants to be a jackass I won't be doing business with him. Nobody should be doing business with him. He is selling his old stock that he paid four bucks an mre now for a profit of ten bucks. The guy is an asshat
