Memorial Day weekend is always the time to stock up on enough charcoal to last all season. Lowes.com has a great Kingsford charcoal deal. Get two 20-lbs bags of Kingsford charcoal briquettes for just $9.99 ($0.25/lb.). This is likely the lowest price we’ll see all season on charcoal. Order it online from Lowes.com, then opt for in-store pickup to avoid shipping costs.
In good news, it looks like you can order multiple of these twin packs. In years past there was a limit of 1 per person. In years past I’ve also heard that Lowe’s stores run this same special, but I can’t promise that this year.
If I had a charcoal grill I’d order enough online to last until next Memorial Day and then drive to the store to pick it up. Why bet on whether the store will have some in stock and whether it will be at this great price?
Your turn: In your book, what price constitutes a great Kingsford Charcoal deal? Is there a different price for other brands of charcoal briquettes?
