I was at Home Depot after work today and saw a 10 gallon rubbermaid with lid for 39.99. It has the Home Depot label on the side. but brandy new! I don't know if it was a regional thing but they had 3 of them in Buffalo(mckinley plaza). I thought that was a killer deal as I am adding parts slowly to all grain.

There was a thread on this a couple of months ago so I rushed out to Home Depot in Mt. Prospect, Ilinois and bought one for $39.99. They only had 2 in stock. I don't think they have any left. You're lucky to get one at that price

Rubbermaid round coolers are expensive for some reason, no matter where you buy them.

$39.00 for a 10 gallon Rubbermaid water cooler is actually a pretty decent price. Froogle it and you'll see. I picked up one last year and it was a great upgrade from my 5 gallon Gott water cooler.

Not for a 10 gallon -- that's a great price.

The 5 gallons are much cheaper, though, and you can get those at Wal-Mart for relatively cheap.

Ive seen 5 gallon coolers for about 12 bucks. But 10 can be 50 or 60 bucks. WTF

They're seasonal at the Depot, so they should start having them in stock soon. I bought mine a few months back and it took 4 guys and a forklift to get it for me.

As to the price: they're great quality and they hold their temps.

Piece of advice: get a sheet of gasket material for the inside and outside.
