RTIC coolers are on sale right now — save up to $270 on these Yeti alternatives

Get ready for summer soirées with these top-rated RTIC coolers and ice chests.

We don't know about you, but we're tired of seeing Yeti big-foot the insulated-cooler market. Forge your own stylish path with these beauties. (RTIC)

There's an intense heat wave blanketing much of the U.S. right now, which means staying hydrated is an especially high priority. It's also the beginning of beach and camping season. Our conclusion? If you don't own a reliable cooler, it's high time you invested in one. And the folks at RTIC can help you keep that investment minimal with their special Summer Duo Deals.

Here's the (literal) deal: Right now, when you purchase select RTIC coolers, you'll score two free tumblers. That means you and a friend can kick back in the sand sipping an ice-cold drink, knowing that there's more where that came from in your brand-new cooler, which you snagged at a killer markdown (as in, up to $270 off) at RTIC, giving you plenty to celebrate.

If you're in the market for a cooler, you've probably heard there's a lot of buzz around RTIC. Many people swear the brand its coolers are on par with industry giants like Yeti but at a significantly lower price. In fact, Yeti actually sued RTIC for creating very similar products. We object!

We love that RTIC coolers can keep ice intact for up to 10 days, which means it's highly likely your drinks and other essentials will stay cold way longer than your beach trip. They also tend to have smart features, like easy-carry handles, and come in a slew of chic colors.

Intrigued? Tempted? Thirsty? Snap up these marked-down coolers, and get two free tumblers in the process.
