Default Where to get a deal on 10 gal coolers

Anyone know? The best I have seen is $55 each, plus shipping. It would be nice to find a store that sold them locally!

Where are you located (country? state/province?)

If you're in the US, you can sometimes find them at Home Depot or Lowe's on sale for under $50.

I live in Calgary, pop 1 Million+ Man, you guys have it lucky. I've been searching high and low for a round Gott cooler (Igloo, Rubbermaid) of any size, 3,5 7 or 10 gallons. Nobody has them in stock.

I'm going to horde coolers this summer when I see them on sale !

Darn -- wish I had known this earlier. I did exactly the same thing here in Calgary last month. Finally gave up after checking EVERYWHERE.

There were some good deals on eBay, though, for 5 gallong gott coolers. $6 plus shipping for used (surplus) coolers.

Default Gotta Look Hard.

I was in my local home depot. The people said that we don't have them yet. I went over by gardening area. Looked around. The bright orange cooler really stood out.

They had a whole frickin' skid up on the top shelf. They were stretch wrapped. Most likely leftovers from last year.

I think they wanted $39 for them.

I bought me a 5 gallon rubbermaid for $19 at wal-mart. According to John Palmer it will do up to 12lbs. Which is ok with me. I have a 12 gal Igloo cube that can go into service if need be.

If you find any it will most likely be last years overstock

Ive always had a 5 gallon, but I need room for 12+lbs of grain AND multiple infusions... 5 gallons is just not enough room for that. I just sold my 5 gallon system.

I'm just getting into AG so I starting out at the minimum requirement. I seriously considered wether I should get a 5 or 10 gallon. I got a 5'r, if I do something with a large grain bill I'll convert the 12'r that I have in basement.

My wal-mart has several of the 12 gal Igloo Cubes. I have heard that many have this and it works well. If you're hard pressed you might try that route.
