Camping with the whole family sure is a lot of fun, but it can quickly turn into a nightmare if you’re not geared up with the right tent. You wouldn’t want to get cramped in a tent that is too small or get soaked while sleeping as water seeps through everywhere, would you? An excellent option is the Big Agnes Flying Diamond 8 Tent, and it’s currently discounted on REI. With this deal, you’ll only be paying $640 instead of its usual $800 price tag.

The Flying Diamond 8 is highly recommended as a family camping tent. It’s spacious, easy to set up, able to withstand a wide range of weather conditions, and equipped with plenty of storage options, making it an excellent choice even for serious campers.

Crafted from durable yet lightweight materials, this tent is easy to carry and transport. The webbing and buckles are color-coded which eliminates the guesswork and confusion about which part goes where, meaning less time for assembly and more time exploring the outdoors. The tent also has a two-door design which makes it convenient for more than one person to enter and exit the tent without disturbing others. Both doors have closure options for ventilation (mesh only) and full weather protection (polyester layer).

This tent offers plenty of space for the family to stretch out and relax. There is an additional fabric wall included if you want to create a two-room layout: One side can accommodate six sleeping bags and two on the other. And with two vestibules, 16 built-in mesh pockets, and mounted loft loops, you can store your equipment, gear, clothing, and other belongings within easy reach.

An all-season camping tent, you can count on the Flying Diamond 8 to shelter you from a variety of climates. The body, fly, and floor are all made from breathable polyester and polyester mesh and coated with polyurethane to ensure a waterproof yet lightweight finish. All seams are also sealed with waterproof, solvent-free polyurethane tape for extra security in wet conditions.

Take your family to an exciting outdoor adventure with the Big Agnes Flying Diamond 8 Tent. You can get the wine/tan variant on REI at a discounted price of $640.

Lego Star Wars sets get big price cuts in Walmart’s massive sale
The Lego Star Wars Fang Fighter vs TIE Interceptor kit.

May the force be with you all summer long, and here’s hoping you take advantage of one of these amazing Lego Star Wars deals. It’s just one of many Walmart deals you’ll be able to grab this week during the big Walmart Deals Sale, and the offer extends to two different Lego Star Wars kits: The Emperor’s Throne Room and the Fang Fighter vs. TIE Interceptor from The Mandalorian.
Lego Star Wars: Emperor's Throne Room was $100 — now $80

The final act of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi features a monumental battle between Luke Skywalker, the infamous Darth Vader, and the dastardly Emperor Palpatine. The 807-piece kit comes with three Lego figures, two lightsabers, and two bolts of Force lightning for mean ole’ Palpatine. We’re also big fans of the Death Star window element and the Emperor’s rotating throne. And once you’ve completed the kit, you’ll be able to festoon it with a fancy 40th anniversary ROTJ plaque! We’re not sure how long this sale is going to last, but while it’s in effect, you’ll be able to take $20 off the normal selling price of this popular battle scene diorama.
