Mini BGE

hi everyone, i've been looking into purchasing a mini recently and will be headed to Atlanta for work in the next few weeks. i'm wondering if it would be a better deal to pick one up from the mothership while i am down there. does anyone know what typical price for a mini is direct from the mothership?

    I believe @lit is in that area. He may know.

    BGE store price is the same suggested retail as dealers. They protect their pricing. Every now and then there are demos, but I am not sure I've seen a mini demo there before.

    I will pass the mothership tomorrow afternoon.

    Are you interested in the Mini only or the mini with accessories?

    They have been closed in the past for inventory. I'd call before stopping by!

    The mothership is not cheaper than any dealer. krobertsmsn is correct. minis are usually 400 bucks in the ATL area.

    If you are going to be in the ATL area go to the BGE website and look for dealers in the area. The local dealers if you find the right one are cheaper than the retail store. The 2 that I have found the best prices at were Roswell hardware which is where Kronertsmsn probably got his or right by them is the work bench ace on Holcomb bridge road. I have not priced minis in awhile but those 2 stores are competitive on their large prices and better than the retail store. Also might want to wait for the GA mountain eggfest and get a demo mini. I believe they were $329 last year if I remember correctly.

  • I bought my mini and med BGEs (and won and purchased Yeti coolers too) from Roswell Hardware and always have had stellar service. I highly recommend them. Please tell them Karen from Rome sent you..  ;)
