Home Depot-Black Earth-$1.48-25l

Postby Lulu » Apr 13, 2012 4:11 pm

The black earth is on sale, tomorrow only, for $1.48 a 25 l bag; up from other years when it was only .99c!
Store opens @ 7 am, and the limit is 10 per customer, but if there are not too many people there, they will let you get in the line again, for an additional 10. They have lots, but it's usually all gone by 9:00 am.

Checked Lowe's online flyer; nothing there, but they generally offer it at the same time, same price. Last year, there was no limit, but their their bags were smaller (20 l) .

I forget where I was last weekend... Rona or Reno Depot or Canadian tire anyhow something like that.

It was the standard 99-cents.

Normally it starts off higher, 1.50 to 2.00$, then drops to 99 cents a bit later (few weeks to a month).

So it will be cheaper soon if it isn't already in your area. But for the few pennies saved...

When you buy 10 or more bags that's more than a few pennies!!! 8)

If that's the case, then wait a week or two.

I just came back from buying a case of beer and it was 1.09$ at the local grocery store.
(for you Ontario people, Beer is sold everywhere and anywhere in Quebec. No such thing as a beer store)

We only have a few convenience stores with beer and alchohol... :cry:

However.....it only takes me 7 minutes to get to either the beer store or the liquor store! :twisted:

I've been watching the flyers...every year the big stores...Home Depot, Crappy tire, rona (around here for me) have special orders where black earth or is 99cents a bag....20 to 25l....Sometimes it's a crap shoot if the stuff is any good. One year the bags from crappy tire was mostly compost....lots of sticks in it! But the bags from Rona were bigger and it was nice.....

Well, I got 20 bags, and it was .99c a bag, even though the flyer said $1.48??

They opened @ 7:00 am, and it was all gone by 8:18.

I had to bring my van in to get my winter tires off, so, came back with the car; was going to get another 20 bags, but,,,too late!

Speaking of Rona,,some years, I've gotten huge (50 l ?) bags of their awesome triple mix for around $4.97, but, it's never advertised,,you just have to be there.
