    20-30 BAGS??? At that price, you should buy as many TONS as you can store......garage, cellar, storage shed, under the bed, in the kitchen cabinets, behind the couch, etc, etc, etc!

    I bought 3 tons of Somersets from Lowes on Saturday for delivery on Sunday. Before I paid for delivery, I specifically asked whether or not I'd be guaranteed the Somersets because if not, then I'd cart them home 1/2 ton at a time in the Ranger. I was guaranteed they'd deliver Somersets. Instead, when I got home from church on Sunday, I had 2 pallets of Green Supreme and a pallet of North Americans sitting in the driveway. Called the manager right away. He looked into it and allegedly the truck driver just grabbed three skids of pellets instead of the ones with my name on them. So, supposedly they'll be delivering my Somersets tomorrow. Oh, and when they called today to confirm the (re)delivery tomorrow, the lady said, "It says in the notes, 'Somersets only'!!" So, hopefully, they'll get it right. But, since they actually honored my 10% off coupon too, I'm willing to put up with the hassle.

    I agree,.. because when I had talked to the guy in 'garden' he said they got the Somersets in,.. yet when I went there to purchase they told me we have "wood pellets - $209" or "premium hardwood pellets - $260" ... I said I want the Somersets......didnt matter what brand to them.

    Just passed the local feed mill hardwood heats 179 a ton, forget who's they are re-bagged but they burn as good/better as Somersets for me.
    might have to grab four ton to hold me over for this year, only 2 miles from home, keep out of the stash that way.......

    I need another 20 to 25 bags to top off my stash. TSC only has GS's and I'm not likin them. Lowes only has Inferno's by the bag. They have Timber heats but never seem to have any open pallets to pick from. Greene Teams are MIA or over priced at $260/ton. Still have hope for HD with some FSU or Presto's. If not I have to hit agway for some Power House but slightly more.

    At least I have some options and only stuck with one meh brand to choose from! Just can't get as lucky as you fella's with the Somersets and Hardwood Heats. ;sick

    I've had my eye out for them almost as soon as I found out about 'em. I don't think I've seen anyone have a bad experience with them. So, when I saw them and realized what they were, I just about did a Napoleon Dynamite'sque happy dance right there in the middle of Lowes!

    Go to your local Lowes and ask the person manning the section of the store that has the pellet/wood stoves to check on the computer for pending pellet shipments. They did it for me here in NY and I knew within a few days when they were being delivered.
