Amazon and the people/companies selling some Nerf items recently lowered the price on a lot of Nerf item listings. Here’s hit the jump for the top five deals in my opinion. Amazon also seems to have a lot of Nerf items eligible for free shipping if you total purchases equal $35 or more. You can check my Sales & Deals page for more good Amazon sales, or to check other store sales as well.
But keep reading below to see the top five Amazon Nerf deals at the moment.
While a $6 single shot blaster might not seem like the most appealing in the world, I prefer to look at it as a way to check out the Rebelle line a bit. It could also be a good gift to younger friends or family you may have, or perhaps it could be that other Nerf related item you buy to put you up over that $35 quota so that you can get that free shipping. While I’ve never held, or used one, I hear it’s performance is very similar to a Firestrike. The Firestrike sells for around $9.99, so this is a little cheaper then that.
While the Stryfe is commonly available, I’ve never seen it’s price go this low before. It’s a solid blaster in stock form, and it’s able to be customized with different attachments and stocks. If your into modding, you can do things like make Shotgun attachments on the blaster, increase the voltage, or replace the motors for better range. This is a very popular and effective blaster in both Nerf Wars and Humans vs. Zombies a like. If you don’t have one yet, this is a good opportunity to pick one up. And if you do have one, if could be added to your mod projects, or possibly fill in a role like a sidearm.
This is a fairly new item, and I don’t think any store in the USA is carrying it yet. If you do the math, your paying about 26 cents per dart in this deal. That’s a bit on the high side, but your also getting 2 6 Dart elite clips/mags, as well as the Ammo Box. I believe the ammo box is a very underrated part of this deal. In the product description, it claims that the Ammo Box holds up to 300 Elite Darts. It’s a good amount of Elite darts, I only have about 400-450 myself. Storing darts is also an important aspect of Nerfing. Storing your darts properly will help fight against deforming and wear & tear. In turn, this will help your darts perform better during games, as well as helping them last longer. The box itself isn’t look too big, so storage and transport should be easy. It’s plastic as well, so you can feel comfortable knowing that whatever you store in it isn’t going to get smashed unless it’s from excessive force.
A lot of people use pretty much any higher capacity clip/mag then the 6 dart mags, so I guess it’s just a small, nice addition to the item. However, if removing it meant lowering the item cost, I would be for it.
While $3 USD doesn’t seem like a lot off, or isn’t enough to mention, I feel like it is. Ever since the 18 dart mag premiered with the Stampede ECS blaster in 2010, it’s been a hot item in the Nerf Community. You can often find the solid ones being resold for a few dollars over this Elite 18 dart mag retail price, and that’s without the darts being included most of the time. The 18 dart mag is also the most commonly used mag in games where clip/mag fed blasters are used. It’s nice size allows it to easily fit into mag pouches and things like pockets. I would say that this would be a good opportunity to stock up on some if you need them, as I don’t predict it’s price to come down for a bit. Don’t forget you get 18 Elite Darts with the mag as well.
At the end of the day, your going to need darts for your blasters. Without darts, what are your blasters going to fire? Darts get lost, torn, and worn down. You going to need to replace them, or get more to feed your blasters. This is why this is my number one deal on the list. Doing the math, your paying 20 cents per dart. Darts don’t go on sale too often, and when they do, it’s usually only for a dollar or two. This deal has knocked five dollars off the cost. I would highly recommend getting at least this 75 pack from this top five list if you had to pick one deal.
