In the market to buy a can of WD-40? It seems you now have options. Not to be left out of the commemorative soda can craze, the folks at WD-40 now offer a “collectable” series of four cans honoring those who serve. Pictured above, each of the four cans in the series pays tribute to a specific branch of the US military: Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines.
Admittedly, I’ve had the same old kinda-corroded-on-the-bottom can of WD-40 sitting on the shelf for at least the last six years. So I’m probably not the market for these. But if you go through the stuff pretty regularly, there’s no reason you shouldn’t stare at a cool picture on the side of the can while you’re doing whatever it is of the zillions of things you can do with WD-40. And as a bonus, for each can you buy, WD-40 will donate 10 cents across three armed forces-related charities: the Armed Services YMCA, the Wounded Warrior Project, and the Veterans Medical Research Foundation.
It looks like you’ll pay about $3.50 for each of the commemorative cans versus about $3/can for the ordinary stuff.
My take: If you like the cans, go for it. If not, just donate $0.50 (or more if you’re able) to one of the three charities, links below. Or hell, just fix the lawnmower for your deployed-overseas neighbor’s spouse. You get the idea.
