Tips for when hitting Walmart. If you have a smart phone, install the Walmart App and turn on location services on your phone. When you get to the store, start the app. It has a price checker function on it.
Weber accessories are probably going to be back in the lawn/garden area, but some stores have moved at least some of the accessories to the "clearance aisle". If you don't know where it is, ask a couple of employees. Someone should be able to tell you.
When you find the accessories, click on the "price check" function on the app and just start scanning bar codes. (BTW, lots of non Weber stuff is being clearanced also). Many people have reported that the register price has been lower than what the price tag or shelf sticker says.
Happy Hunting !

Another tool in my toolbelt that has come in handy, both for Brickseek deals as well as honey-do/home improvement projects, is buying coupons for Lowes. I used to buy from ebay, but now buy from https://www.tenoffcoupons.com/.
The website is straightforward - they offer either 10% off entire purchase, or $20 off $100 purchase coupons. Pay with paypal, get the coupon in a matter of minutes.

Spend $3 to save $20? Yes please. Or, for much bigger projects, like the bathroom remodel I did a couple of years ago, spend $15 to save over $100.

I considered it, but one is an hour away the other is about 45 minutes.

I always check there. It's there half of the time. Good advice.

Found a $69 Akorn today, hidden behind stacked 3-high $35 Premium Kettles on a pallet. It took more than a few walk-bys to spot the empty space on the backside of the pallet, next to the wall, flanked by a rack full of items, where a box might be. I had to stick my head into that rack so that I could see what was in the box behind those kettles.

Yup! One time at Home Depot, 3 employees went searching for the last Blackstone Patio (pizza) cooker their pc said they had. This was after I had done my own searching around the grill and other aisles. So I waited in the main concourse area just looking around and boom, there it was, high on the stock shelves against the front wall of the place, underneath a couple of boxes of some unrelated stuff.

You just never know. And that's part of the fun for me.
