As a followup, there was a couple of posts today on bt3central.com where people were reporting getting them at $12 each. Now that's a super bargain I don't care who you are. I may have to try for that even though I don't need them right now, I may in the future. :lol:
I tried to find a couple of these at the $12 price. There were two in the Lowes Chapel Hill store but were not discounted. I found one for $12 in the Sanford store and it is being held for me at customer service. Before going to Sanford and spending $20 or so on gas, I went back to the Chapel Hill store and talked with one of the managers. He said this was a non-stock item and they don't price match non-stock items with their other stores but he would sell me the bases for $25 each. I bought both of them at that price rather than spend the money for gas going to Sanford. If anyone wants the one at the Sanford store PM me and I'll call them and tell them that you are picking it up for me.
I picked one up at the Mebane Lowes last week for $10.It was just sitting on their sale/clearance table in front of the machinery aisle.Not sure if there were any more.Didn't see any more and didn't ask.Didn't want to bring a mistake to their attention...if it was a mistake.
