BGE Price increase

My dealer who is a very close friend told me today that there will be a price increase on his costs of BGE's effective Feb. 1. His cost will go up about $100 for a large. So if anyone is thinking about buying a BGE might want to take advantage before the increase. Mike

    Wow. That puts a second one just another $100 further away from my future for sure.
    Visit my blog, dedicated to my Big Green Egg Recipies at http://www.bigtsbge.blogspot.com You can also follow my posts on FaceBook under the name Keep On Eggin' or the link http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Keep-On-Eggin/198049930216241
  • I think the Ceramic competers will jump with Joy. A lot of compitition If there is a big improvement might be a good thing. We will just have to wait and see.
  • I work for a BGE dealer. The actual price increase on our end will be around $42 on a large.

    The $100 might a retail markup, but that's quite a jump if so. We plan on raising the price around $50.
    Also, we won't be raising the price until current inventory is exhausted.

    Either way, now is the time to buy if you are interested.

    I understand that EVERYTHING goes up.They better remember that pigs get fat and HOGS get slaughtered. ;)

    I don't know how much of his increase was from BGE and how much was from the next level but his cost increase is $100 for a large.
  • I heard the XL's are going to start to come with TruTel Thermometers too. Are these mainly just a price increase or is BGE upgrading what you get too?

    Nice quote Hoss.

    My friend is a really small dealer and had sold a few items during Holiday season and was checking to restock when he got the news. Will be hard for him to keep his dealership with this increase, lots of $$ instock for a small guy. He was just passing this info to me in case I needed/wanted something so it would save some on shipping for both of us.

    I heard but not for sure that stainless grids are also part of the upgrade

    I know what ya mean.Hard for a little guy to make it in anything these days. :(
  • I bought an XL 3 or 4 months ago and it came with a tel-tru thermo.

    Poolman, my dealer told me the same thing. Stainless steel grids would be in the upgrade.
  • Looked again this morning. MSRP is going up $100.

    You should be able to negotiate that down some. If you can't, give me a call. ;)
