As I write this blog post, Amazon.com is offering the Estes Phoenix model rocket kit at more than 50% off its regular retail price of $23.99. If you are an Amazon Prime member, there is no extra charge for two-day shipping.

I was alerted to the special price by using the RocketReviews.com Rocketry Deals Finder.

9/24 UPDATE: The Amazon offer no longer appears at Amazon.com.
