MM at Home Depot

Post  tred1956 on 3/22/2016, 11:27 pm

Just tried to order MM from Home Depot. According to sticky in Product section an agreement was reached with Home Depot for a max of $55 shipping. When I tried to buy 20 bags shipping was $200.00 (it went up $10 for every bag I added). Cost of MM was $7+ a bag. Total order was $379+. Chatted with Home Depot Expert Evil or Very Mad . She offered $50.00 off of $200 for shipping but said that was all she could do.

Has offer of $55 max shipping expired ?

Thanks
Doug

Interesting.  Have you contacted Belinda at the SFG Foundation?  I know there was something arranged with Home Depot but not the specifics.

Added: I think I will send her an email tomorrow.

Same issue with MM and Home depot

Post  High Desert on 4/13/2016, 7:14 pm

We just got back from Home Depot and asking if they could get MM delivered to the store here in central Oregon.  We only wanted 8 bags to start with.  HD customer service in store really tried to help, but after conferring with the next level of ordering and delivey, best they could do was $60 for 8 bags of MM deliver.  Not paying anything like that, but would be nice to know if there was an option worked out.

Bag Size

Post  High Desert on 4/13/2016, 7:20 pm

The bags we were looking to get were the 1..5 cut and weighed 30# each, I believe.

Probably cheaper to make your own MM. Buy large (4 cu ft) bags of vermiculite and peat moss. The fun part is trying to find 5 different kinds of compost if you do not have your own compost.
