07-05-2011, 04:44 PM
just read that stubbs is on sale for $5. i can't verify so check yer local lowes.

07-05-2011, 05:04 PM
just called my local one, and they said it was for the 4th, and the sale was over. Back to 8.49 where I'm at :doh:

07-05-2011, 05:26 PM
My local website is showing $5.

07-05-2011, 05:30 PM
odd cuz no one saw nor mentioned it was on sale for the 4th. might wanna look into it further.

07-05-2011, 05:33 PM
will do, maybe he was wrong, or its just different for my region...either way thanks for the heads up!

07-05-2011, 05:34 PM
Funny thing is, I checked the site over the weekend and there was no sale. Now it shows $5. I guess it's a post holiday sale....

07-05-2011, 05:37 PM
okay, looked online for my local lowes, and it says 5 dollars. Going to print it out and take it to them....thanks again!

07-05-2011, 05:45 PM
yea, there are no sales ads but if you type in stubb in the search it shows it for $5. hope that is in store rather than forcing you to order it.

07-05-2011, 05:51 PM
I just ordered it online, and selected local pick up. So I had to print out the receipt, and then take it to them. Going to pick it up after work today! Great deal, Stubbs seems like its never on sale.

07-05-2011, 05:54 PM
The last time they had them on sale for $4.25 was back in March and it was not over a holiday. I still have plenty left from that sale.

07-05-2011, 05:57 PM
Just checked online here in Tennessee (Nashville) and its showing $8.49. I did stock up at the last bogo but could use a few more.

07-05-2011, 06:05 PM
just talked to my lowes guy. he said its not a marked sale. it expires on the 11th according to him.

07-05-2011, 06:11 PM
trs, one does show it for $5 . you need to check all of them. here is one that lists it

07-05-2011, 06:21 PM
5 beans here:-D

07-05-2011, 06:31 PM
Oh my Georgia brethren, I am on my way to Lowe's in Norcross to pick up as much Stubb's as I can carry for $5 per bag. Bring the webad with you and it will be honored. :thumb:

Thank you George! :clap2:

I never see Stubb's on sale here, it's always just Kford.

07-05-2011, 07:20 PM
dlr, i checked three lowes in charlotte and they all show it at $5.

Yep, it wasn't even marked on sale in the store. I stopped by to pick up one bag and left with six after the cashier told me it was $5. I'll probably get a few more bags if I remember to before it goes back to $8.49 or whatever the regular price is, but I was in a hurry and there were few left on the skid...several of those damaged. Hopefully, they'll have some more bags when I go back in.

I just bought a few bags on the 1st and paid 8.49. I'm going to go back for more and have them refund the difference on the bags from July 1. I'd rather have 30 pounds of Stubb's for $10 than 40 lbs of Kingston for $ 7.50.

dlr, i checked three lowes in charlotte and they all show it at $5.
I just called them and after the guy looked on line said "Yep, I wish they'd tell us when they do that" He also said it was on sale until 7-11-2011

07-05-2011, 09:31 PM
Thanks, I just checked on-line and it's finally on sale in MI:-D

07-05-2011, 10:43 PM
Hmm, just when I finished explaining to the wife why I needed a dozen bags of Kingsford, this stuff goes on sale again.
I don't suppose w-mart will be having a sale on RO lump anytime soon?
Then I'll really be in trouble.:wink:

07-05-2011, 10:54 PM
Sorry noob here. Is this Stubbs charcoal the same quality as lump, just in briquet form? I've been a fan of everything else I've used with his name on the label.

Sorry noob here. Is this Stubbs charcoal the same quality as lump, just in briquet form? I've been a fan of everything else I've used with his name on the label.

Short answer: its an all-natural briquette with a neutral smell. Less ash production than most briqs and none of the strong smell of Kingsford Blue when first lit.
Here's one old thread.

Same here in Missouri (I'm in Sedalia)....Sale is 5 bucks and good till the 11th of July. I still have 20 bags after the 4th.....I mite wait it out and see if I can get 4 dollar bags again...or better yet get a great farkin deal like I did at the end of summer last year and get some 2 dollars bags!

07-06-2011, 12:58 AM
I think I'll stick with the RO Lump I get at Sam's.

07-06-2011, 06:38 AM
Thanks for the info George. I am headed there today!

07-06-2011, 07:10 AM
$5.00 here in N.J. too. Guess I know where i'm going this afternoon.

07-06-2011, 07:50 AM
I got to try that last time I went to NY but not only is it not on sale up in Ontario but I have yet to find any merchants who carry it in my area! :mad:

07-06-2011, 08:06 AM
$5.00 here in Michigan also, the online ad says the sale price is good thru July 11th.

07-06-2011, 10:00 AM
I stopped of at one of the Lowe's here before we get the heavy rain expected. Got 6 bags! It wasn't marked on sale so I asked a young lady to check the computer and she tells me there's no sign, it's not on sale. After getting her to check the computer, she says "it is on sale!". She was surprisedlike as if I had inside info. Lol.... I went back down the isle and snatched up five more bags and as I'm rolling away I see her telling an older gentleman(employee)about the sale price and he just gave me a stare down like as if I had just stolen something. Funny!!
Actually I guess it is a steal since it's usually $8.97.
Heck! I may pick up some more if I have to pass by there again.

$5.00 here in Austin too. And I just ran out a few weeks ago! Been suffering through generic grocery store brand briqs that don't come close in performance.

Our local Lowes is showing $5/15lb bag. I just ordered 13 bags online(still have 2 bags and 15 bags seems like a good number) for in store pickup. Not sure how I'm gonna explain this one to the fiancee being i just bought 200+ lbs of Kingsford last week. But in the long run, i am saving money as i would have ended up paying a lot more buying a bag at a time....that's what i keep telling myself anyway...

At our Lowes here in Michigan it was not listed on sale on the floor and the sales guy said it was not, however, when it scanned through the register, the sale price came up.

07-06-2011, 11:21 AM
not here. scanned at regular price and they did not know it was on sale. online it clearly is $5/bag, at that location.

unfortunately my wife trusted the word of them over me :roll: and didn't push the issue.

she offered to go back. :thumb:

Just picked up 10 bags, there was a sticker that said special price $5 above it. I should be set for a few months now lol

07-06-2011, 12:23 PM
Picked up 4 bags here in Indiana. Price was marked at $5 on the display. Will try and get back before it goes off sale and get another 4 or so bags. I have been waiting on it to go on sale!

07-06-2011, 03:53 PM
Too bad I just bought 6 bags of blue bag.........

07-06-2011, 04:02 PM
I just picked up 4 bags myself... had six in the cart, but then decided to put 2 back because I don't go through it as quickly as a lot of y'all.

The price was clearly marked on the shelf at my store, so the printout I brought wasn't necessary. The cashier told me they'd sold out of Blue bag over the weekend and that he hadn't seen them sell any of the Stubb's. I took the opportunity to educate him on the difference. :wink:

07-06-2011, 05:24 PM
Yahoo, I just got the last 7 bags our lowes had. Marked on shelf at $5.00. Web page shows price good through the 11th.

07-06-2011, 09:49 PM
just picked up 4 bags myself. there was a tag on the label but i know it wasn't there untill i called them yesterday.

07-06-2011, 10:44 PM
i've used the lowes lumps before, but it sparked and cracked way to much, seemed to be a lot of ash. But I guess that was the Cowboy Lump

got a cook this weekend. Ya'll are tempting me to try this.
