After looking more closer at the site, I realize you guys are right. I think it is the gift certificates they ship free. So it's back to the hunt for the banderta. Home Depots around here say they don't have all their grills in yet this season, but the SKU # I gave them, comes up blank(133-742)
Will keep bugging them until they get more stock in. Thanks for all the advise guys, I'll keep you posted. If anyone hears of a site or store where I can find a New Braunfels bandera, let me know please.

It will most likely take an "out of region" search at Home Depot.
That requires a Manager to do it--the Dude or Dudette in Customer Service does not have the "database access horsepower"!
That is how I found mine and had it shipped in (their expense) as an inter-store transfer.

Whoa - this works with the manager? I gotta try that! I had someone at Home Depot Corporate in Tampa trying to find one for me and she couldn't. If this manager thing really works - I'll be all over that tactic!!

Keep us posted on how this works for you!

I bought mine yesterday at Wal-Mart. It was stored on a shelf about 20 feet off the floor and the associate said that it had been there for over a year. He also said that they weren't carrying it anymore.

And IMHO it is just a matter of time before they will be discontinued. Much more profit margin in the gassers and the tree huggers are worried about the smoke we make!
