2021 Berkey Holiday Sale UPDATE!
So here’s the scoop for the holidays this year.
I just spent several hours “personal shopping” and analyzing these deals for you because not everything is always a good deal and I’m never going to sell you on something you don’t need.
The long story short is Berkey filters are an amazing way to ensure safe drinking water for your home, especially if you live with a cistern, a well, or questionable city water. It also cuts down significantly on your plastic consumption if you’re used to buying bottled water.
Berkey is offering some fantastic bundles that will run from November 11 – December 2, 2021.
Note: The deals page might have an email sign-up box for you to “unlock” the deals. You can always unsubscribe later. I will say that, of all the companies that email me, they are the least spammy.
The bundles are great, especially if you were already eyeing some of the accessories like the stand or the stainless steel spigot. Even if you weren’t angling for any of the extras, the bundles are still a fantastic deal.
Bundles for 2021 are for the Travel, Big, and Royal Berkeys and will include the stainless steel spigot, stand, a 2-pack of the Boroux Basics Bottles, and the System Pro Kit.
The system pro kit includes the newer version of the filter primer, which judging from the video on their site looks like a nice upgrade to the standard primer button. It’s easy to accidentally spray water all over my kitchen when using the ring-style priming button. This new little primer looks to solve that issue (unless you have a really wide kitchen faucet, in which case you might want to just use the regular primer or get the Black Berkey primer, which is really handy if you don’t trust your tap water).
They will also be giving the first 1000 orders over $300 a $25 discount voucher!
So what are the best deals this year?
The Travel Berkey, Big Berkey, Berkey Light, and Royal Berkey Bundles
The most popular units are always the Travel, Big, and Royal Berkey units. This year, the Berkey Light is joining their ranks in the Holiday Sale line-up.
Unlike last year, there’s no funky math for me to do. ALL of the bundles in the sale are legitimately less than the cost of the stand-alone units. This means that you get the Berkey plus the stainless steel spigot, the stand, the glass Boroux bottles, and the System Pro Kit for an actual lower price than the cost of just buying the Berkey.
However, if you DO only want a Berkey and don’t fancy all the extras, select items can be purchased at a 12% discount here with code Holiday2021. Specifically, these deals are great if you’re looking for the Travel, Big, Light, or Royal sizes OR select accessories. Unfortunately, these are not great if you’re looking for bigger units like the Crown or Imperial. No deals are currently being offered on those, though I will certainly update this post if that changes in the future.

A note on the bundles: they do NOT include the fluoride filters.
They have been part of some bundles in the past, but they have gotten so hard to keep in stock that they aren’t even offering the option this year. If you really want the fluoride filters, you’ll probably find yourself waiting for a while. You can get on the waiting list for the fluoride filters here.
11/11/21 Update: You may still be able to get a set of fluoride filters shipped to you via Amazon here.
Black Berkey Filters
The sale this year on black filters is pretty good. Not as good as I had initially read it to be, but still good enough that I’ll probably stock up on black filters since I know we’ll need to replace ours some time in the coming year.
This is an awesome deal if you already have a Berkey filter OR you want to add filters to the unit you plan to purchase.
We have the Big Berkey and used just 2 of the 4 filter slots for the first two years we had it. Last year, when we needed to replace our original filters, we went ahead and bought all four of them, and WOW what a HUGE difference it makes in our filtration speed! That was critical to keeping us hydrated throughout the hot summer.
If you already have a Berkey and are looking for accessories, they’ll have deals upwards of 50% off on things like the tote bags, stands, cups, and bottles. There will also be a good deal on the 2-pack of Sport Berkey bottles. They aren’t my favorite Berkey item (mostly because of the plastic) but my husband has been happy taking one to his workplace that has questionable old pipes and terrible tasting tap water.

Side note: I’m an affiliate for Berkey because I bought one (i.e. with my own money…I wasn’t given one to promote it) and I love it so much I often joke that I’ll bequeath my estate to it. Living off-grid, it’s been a HUGE lifesaver for me and my family. When you buy a Berkey or any accessories through my links, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. Same goes for other affiliate links I share. Same for other bloggers, YouTubers, influencers, whoever you follow. For us, it’s a small way to support our homestead and the projects I have in the works here on the blog.
