Default BGE price increase...

I was considering purchasing a BGE this September at the local Eggfest until I saw the price increase...

Demo Eggs Include:
  • Large Egg, Egg-Mates (Side Shelves)
  • Egg Nest (Stand)
  • Ash Rake
  • Grill Gripper
  • Approx 1/2 bag of Lump Charcoal.
Retail for this package is $932.20. Your cost is $715, over $200 in savings for this once a year event.

To purchase your Demo Egg, please visit your local Eggfest Sponsor to pre-pay for the Egg.
You will need to pick the Egg up at the Pacific Northwest Eggfest between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.
You must register for the Eggfest in order to purchase a Demo Egg. The Egg may still be warm, so plan accordingly.

We will also have plate setters that have been used one time with the Demo Egg available for $35 each. (You save over $10)

Guess I'll keep checking Craig's List...

You're probably not getting the side shelves which are around $100 I think. Both are a good deal. The suggested retail for just the egg is $699 and the nest is around $80.

I don't think there has been a price increase.

It is a price increase from the promotor not from BGE. He is trying to cut the cost of putting on the Eggfest.

Maybe not from the Mothership...but from our local distributors it has...

I picked up my first one last year for 642.00 WITH plate setter.
Here's the price break down from last year...

Oh I see. It's just the Seattle Eggfest demo price that has gone up.
That was a heck of a deal last year and I suspect they realized they couldn't do it that cheap.
