Memorial Day weekend has arrived and it's time to set summer in motion. ...
BBQ Grill Deals
To find the best BBQ grill deals, you may have to do some digging. The best time of year to find BBQ grill deals is September and October, when retailers want to get rid of their summer gear and make room for holiday stuff.
But with spring just about here, you might as well start your search. Just remember to consider shipping costs in addition to the BBQ grill price -- grills are large and the shipping costs can add up quickly. The good news is that many online retailers offer free shipping on orders over a certain dollar amount.
Home and garden retailers are the best places for frugal shoppers to begin their BBQ grill deals hunt. Sears sells primarily Kenmore products and the same is true of its BBQ grill deals. We had some luck searching the clearance section of the site and saw several Kenmore gas grills deeply discounted. A quick search of Sears Outlet also revealed many Kenmore BBQ grill deals, but there were a few other brands thrown in, such as Meco and Char-Broil. On the day we searched there were nearly 40 BBQ Grill deals priced below $250. Kmart (owned by Sears Brands) also offers BBQ grill deals on many Kenmore grills in addition to other brands, like Weber and Char-Broil, and also provides free shipping if you're willing to ship it to the store nearest you, where you can then pick it up.
Not to be left out, Lowe's features several BBQ grill deals priced below $250, including a Char-Griller Grillin' Pro priced at $169. Home Depot also has many BBQ grill deals, including a Weber One Touch Gold 22.5 -- one of Cheapism's picks -- starting at $149, with free shipping. Lowe's is currently offering free assembly when you purchase a grill from a Lowe's store or on Lowes.com and choose ship-to-store for pickup.
Don't overlook online superstore Amazon. The online retail giant displays many BBQ grill deals, including a handful of Char-Griller BBQ grill deals, such as our best gas grill choice -- the Char-Griller Wrangler 2123, for just $129. During our search we noticed most grills are also eligible for free super saver shipping. Online retailer Abt scores 3.5 stars with reviewers on ResellerRatings.com and is a good source for charcoal grills, specifically; the gas BBQ grill deals did not impress us. Newegg offers a number of grills priced below $100 and some come with free shipping. The good thing about this site is there's no guessing at shipping costs -- the charge is listed right under the item price. GrillsDirect.com is a specialized retailer and has numerous BBQ grill deals under $200 and provides free shipping on most units -- some even ship out within 24 hours.
Walmart, Target, and Best Buy also offer exceptional BBQ grill deals. Walmart has nearly 100 current BBQ grill deals ranging from $100 to $250, while Best Buy has grills starting as low as $99.99 and Target as low as $59.99 (for a charcoal grill). Walmart offers free shipping to store on most BBQ grill deals, while Target has some listed with a special $9.99 shipping price.
Comparison sites are good places to check prices to ensure you're getting the best BBQ grill deals. Since it's not quite grilling season, the deal sites we checked didn't have a lot of BBQ grill deals to compare, but the best comparisons we found in the Cheapism price range were from Yahoo! Shopping.
Finally, before you buy do a quick search for coupons. You may be able to find actual grill coupons or at least store coupons from sites such as Deals.com, which revealed free shipping coupons from several online retailers that have BBQ grill deals.
