I review a lot of Vanguard binoculars and one thing that always strikes me is just how good value for money they are and that is usually just after they have been released and they are being sold at or near their full recommended retail price (RRP). So when I spot them listed at a discounted price or with a cashback offer, then they really do offer incredible value.
Below are the current Vanguard offers and Cashbacks that I have discovered and know about as well as some of their past offers listed below in the UK.

New Vanguard Endeavor ED II Binoculars
First shown off in public during the Shot Show in Las Vegas in 2014, these new Vanguard Endeavor ED II binoculars went on to win the BBR award for the Best Wildlife Observation Binocular the same year.
Amongst a number of improvements on the original and very popular Endeavor ED’s, the biggest is undoubtedly the use of the very best HOYA ED glass in the lenses. Made in Japan these help improve on the already very good levels of light transmission and overall optical performance to produce an image that is not only brighter in low light, but is of a higher resolution and sharpness.
For more details on this and all the other aspects of this binocular take time to read my full Vanguard 8x42 Endeavor ED II Binocular Review

To me this cash back offer is incredible as I already rated the 10x42 Spirit ED and the 8.5x45 Endeavor ED as great value for money binoculars even before the cash-back offer!
As you can see on my section about Vanguard Binoculars, I have fully reviewed quite a few of their models and one thing that almost always stands out is that they offer incredibly good value for money, delivering far higher specification optics than what their price tag suggests.
It is for these reasons that the Vanguard 10x42 Spirit ED won my award for the Best Value For Money Binocular in 2011 and going further back the Vanguard 8.5x45 Endeavor ED won the same award in 2010!
Other Great Value Binoculars I have reviewed quite a few other great value for money binoculars out there and perhaps these Vanguards may not be for you. But this offer is well worth keeping in mind, especially when you take a close look at any of the Endeavor ED or Spirit ED models and compare all their high end components and features that produce a very high quality image with their price tag.
Cost & Where to Buy
You can compare prices and get this UK cash-back offer as well as the US rebate on Vanguard binoculars from the following on-line retailers:
Past Offers on Vanguard Binoculars
Below are some past discounts, rebates and cashback offers that may or may not still be available, but which you may still want to check out:
I tend to find and see far more rebates and cashback offers in the US, than when compared to the UK (especially where binoculars are concerned), so it is always great to see a manufacturer offering an incentive to buy their binoculars in the UK.
A short while back I wrote about the US offer of the $50 rebate offered by Vanguard for their ED binoculars and now I can happily inform everyone on this side of the pond that they can now get a similar deal in the UK:
£20 Cashback on Vanguard Spirit ED & Endeavor ED Binoculars
Most Vanguard binoculars are already been offered at a reduced price anyway, but what this means is that can now subtract a further £20 from the price on all of their Endeavor ED or Spirit ED binoculars!
So for example:
- List Price:
- Current Retail Price approx: £203.97
- Claim the Rebate and these high end binoculars only cost you: £183.97!
Winners of my award for the Best Value For Money Binocular in 2011 (before the discount & rebate!) the Spirit ED are now just incredible value for money. They include premium extra low-dispersion ED glass which prevents chromatic aberration resulting in clearer and sharper images. They also come with advanced lens coatings for a light transmission up to 90%. They have a lightweight waterproof and fogproof body, long eye relief, large easy to adjust focusing wheel and come with the Vanguard limited lifetime warranty.
- List Price:
- Current Retail Price approx: £339.99
- Claim the Rebate and these high end binoculars only cost you: £319.99!
There is no doubt that with Vanguard’s Endeavor ED, you get top-of-the-line quality at an affordable price. The body has a great ergonomic, open-bridge design, and you get exceptional light transmission thanks to the larger than standard 45mm objective lenses that are fully multi-coated and like the Spirit ED the Endeavor ED uses premium extra low-dispersion glass which prevents chromatic aberration resulting in clearer and sharper images.
The Endeavor ED is waterproof and fogproof and comes with the Vanguard premium lifetime warranty.
