There are three charcoal sales that you can pretty much count on year after year. Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day. These sales generally produce 50% off sales and if you even grill 1/4 of the times I do, it’s worth it to stock up.
Regular prices on Kingsford are $10 for an 18.6 lb bag of charcoal which comes to .537 cents per lb.
For comparisons sake I’ll do the math for you.
Home Depot Kingsford Sale 2×18.6= 37.2lbs $9.88 divided by 37.2lbs=.265 cents per lb
Lowes Royal Oak Briquettes Sale $4 divided 15.4lbs= .259 cents per lb
Lowes Kingsford Sale Same as HD- 2×18.6= 37.2lbs $9.88 divided by 37.2lbs=.265 cents per lb
Also there are $15 off of $50 coupons out there on the internet for Lowes, so if you get that discount code and use it, you’d need to get 6 two packs. That’s $59.28-$15 coupon = $44.28 12 bags x 18.6= 223.2 lbs $44.28 divided by 223.28= .198 cents per lb
