eBags 20% Off Sale with Free Shipping, a Good Opportunity to Pick up a Throwaway Carryon?

In addition to working with a nice roll-aboard, I like to have the occasional throwaway bag as well. The kind I tend to pick up for $20 in Southeast Asia.

I hate to check bags but occasionally I want to overpack on the outbound portion of a trip, maybe bring a bunch of liquids with me or gifts, and I don’t want to bother bringing checking the bag on the way home, so a bag I feel comfortable just leaving behind.

Ebags is running an extra 20% off sale through June 21. Combined with free shipping, this makes it easy to pick up a throwaway bag as well, something as cheap as $32 all-in.

And of course it’s even less expensive than that because you can pick up 8% cash back via eBates or 10% via Fatwallet.

It’s a good sale on other mid-range bags as well, nothing all that interesting for me (I’m increasingly particular about my luggage) but I did pick up one of those $30 net cost carryons that I’ll probably leave behind somewhere in the next year. (Boy, if that statement wasn’t flame-bait for the comments, I don’t know what would be… let ‘er rip.)
