    I just purchased three tons. They said they are only offering an early buy price from the mill.
    $240/ton if you pick up before the end of May. $250/ton if you pick up from June to the end of August.
    I opted for the end of August, since my garage is currently filled with stuff for our upcoming wedding.

    I pulled the trigger on 6 tons of Okies. I got them for $275/ton. I can live with that. I budget $1,500/season for pellets so even with delivery I am only $160 over.

    I just received an email, seems like a price increase already from what they told you.
    $255.00 per ton, I guess I'll pass.

    Another forum I frequent refers to this as necroposting.

    Man. When I saw this thread show up on the first page, I thought I must have been drunk when I posted it. I didn't remember doing it.
    But yes, they are up to $255/ton this year. Although they aren't offering two prices like they did last year. It is just $255 if picked up by 8/30.

    I used to pre-buy 600 gallons of oil in the early fall and they would deliver it to me all winter long. It's a great way to lock in a lower price and save $$. Same thing with pellets.

    On a side note, get them now so you're not out scrambling for pellets next winter should there be another shortage.

    I know what you're saying, but when I pass the local HD, Augusta Maine, and they've got 80 tons of FSUs and Green Supremes sitting all wrapped up, with the temp supposed to his 70 tomorrow, I'm thinking I can wait!

    I hear ya...
    our HD stopped getting pellets mid-Feb.....
    I could wait till fall also but Stove Chows are the only pellets I buy from them...Not thrilled with there others like GS.
    And, I don;t know if they will get SC's this year...if they do, then I'll grab a ton and add to my stach....

    I told them I'd take 6 tons of Blazers, that they had during the pellet shortage! They laughed at me.
