He does live in Utah, so that could be the reason it costs so much out there as it's pretty far away from Milwaukee, WI. I agree that the price for me which is about what you found online keeps me away from using it. I have also used it in the past without good results but there might have been other factors involved.
I pay $12.98 here in Dallas. Milo is good, but imo, not $20 good. Hopefully there will be some deals in your area where you can stock up. Maybe Red will post a pic of his car the last time Milo was $3.
11.00 to 15.00 is price difference I find in the Omaha area. Ace- local nursery's being the highest and Walmart- lowes being the cheapest. One thing if you buy the very cheap bag from Walmart that is cheap because its probably more than 2 years old. You will need to screen the bags while pouring in your hopper to remove clumps, I found that the hard way once a piece is locked into the gate opening you are screwed, only way to get it out is to dump load and re-load.
I kid, but funny story... when I was buying all the Walmart clearance Milo last year at ~$3/bag, I didn't take the 2-3 bags at the bottom of pallet that had holes in them because they refused to discount them further. In hindsight, I probably should have swallowed my pride and bought them anyway.
Just FYI, the one year I tried to go organic, I decided to stock up on Milo the Winter before by buying a bag or two every payday or when I was at Lowe's or HD. I had a pretty big stack of it by the time Spring rolled around. I think I had around 40 bags.
$12.97/bag at Lowes and then I search eBay for $15 off $50 coupon codes. You can find a seller that sells two codes for .99 and usually sends the codes within the hour. With the cost of the coupon codes on eBay and making two transactions of four bags each, it brought the cost down to $9.34 per bag. Good enough for me until the Walmart sale.
