Anyone With Real MREs? (Case A or Case B)

Post by excelblue » Mon Mar 24, 2008 9:13 pm

Does anyone here have any real Case A or Case B MREs with inspection dates in 2010 or 2011?

I am looking for some, and I'm wondering how much you guys would be willing to sell them for as compared to eBay.

I live in Orange County, CA, so if any of you is near that area, I might be willing to pick it up instead of doing the expense of shipping. However, I'm still willing to buy from those of you in other places.

For starters, let's start calling these MREs by their Date Packed. eBay sellers like to quote inspection dates because it makes the MREs sound fresher...but we know better and shouldn't be trying to fool ourselves.

So you're really looking for 2007 and 2008 MREs. All I can tell you is good luck with that. The 2007s are just starting to show up more and more often on eBay. But those usually go for around $70-$80 total ($50 Buy-it-Now, $30 (inflated) shipping). And 2008s are extremely rare right now.

I just *had* to have a case of 2007s for review a while back and it cost me about $80...way more than I really wanted to pay but it the only case I could find.

If you can find someone around here with spare 2007 or 2008 cases, more power to you. I'd love to hear about that, too.

Best I have is a 2006 (2009) B case, but I'd sell it to you for what it cost me, which is ~$70. Would be cheaper on ebay tho. I miss the $55-60 case days.
