I think that this Amazon customer review summed it up well:

1) You go hunting or somewhere you cannot refill on ice, and thus need to make it last to keep your food/drinks/meat edible and fresh.
2)You live in a place where it gets extremely hot and you might not need 7-10 days of ice, but you do need 1-2 days of ice. Such as, the desert. If you go grocery shopping and you buy things from multiple stores and you are thus out and about a couple of hours. This is a great cooler to leave in your trunk with some ice packs and your meat/diary, or other perishables.

If you do not fall into these two categories, then you probably do not NEED this cooler, or others like it. Buy it knowing that you could probably get through life with a regular and much cheaper cooler. I am not saying not to buy it, just don't complain that it costs so much. You are paying for its deep ice keeping abilities, not everyone needs that.
I am rarely far from available ice, so I fall into the "not everyone needs" that category. I have four regular coolers that work for me.

As for Gander Mountain, I went into our local closing Gander Mtn today.. discounts were 10-30 percent off but that only made the prices competitive - no major bargains.

I hate the price fixing......

More than the high price.

Only by going out of busiNess can a retailer mark them

Nothing unique about Yeti cooler construction,. Just like their SS double wall drink cups. More and more imitators out there. In this case the copies are as good as the original. I prefer to not pay the Yeti "tax" so I get the Ozark Trail cups and coolers. About 70% less than Yeti and about half RTIC and similar copies. The Ozark Trail coolers are hard to find as they sell out at Walmart. They come in three sizes I prefer the smallest for lighter weight, easier to store, etc.

Is this style cooler a necessity? Heck no, it's a want to have vs a need to have for most of us. This is another reason I prefer the Ozark. Had enough to justify/rationalize a $96 cooler. Explaining a $300 cooler is really impossible for me. My other cooler is a nice four day 55 at Igloo cost $7 at Salvation Army, which is all I really need.

Yeti, Expensive so you can be one up on the camper parked next door. You can even buy a cap with the logo on it so it will go with your Lolex watch you are wearing and the BMW that you are towing with.
