Both are ripoffs. Get it refilled somewhere that fills tanks and get a full tank for same price or less.

If you have a Tractor Supply Store nearby they are by far the cheapest around here. Had a couple filled just a couple months ago for less then 8.00 apiece. That's full too, not 75% like these.

Does the one you turn in have to be a Blue Rhino tank?

No. And the converse is true despite what people say. Blue rhino ones can be refilled. Last time I refilled, I believe it was $9.99 for 20 lbs. With this deal it is $12.00 for 15 lbs, after a measly $3 rebate. How much is postage nowadays?

But more to the point, you can take an old out of date cylinder and exchange it for a newer one that is still in date and you can use it for refilling. This would be the only scenario in which I would patronize the tank exchange places. Uhaul, truevalue, BJs, costco, tractor supply, some gas stations, and other places generally do refills.

So if you don't bother with the rebate, it's $15? Is there tax on top of that? I have an out-of-date one that leaks and is almost empty that I'd love to exchange for a good one.

Btw, I've always heard these described in gallons, not pounds. Mine is a standard size for a grill and it takes 5 gallons. Is that the same as 20 lbs?

I think that's the approximate conversion. It's 4 point something gallons per 20 lbs I think. Anyways, you will be getting 15/20th aka 3/4 of the full tank that you are used to.

I don't know what's the difference, but I have one of the old type tanks, so I was just wondering would they accept it. Now can anyone tell if I will need to buy anything else to get the new type tank to work with my grill?

Everything should work for you just fine. Supposedly, the exchange places will take ANYTHING. Rusted, busted, whatever.

Thanks. Do you know if this includes tax?

I can definitely get mine filled cheaper, and closer to me, but it is worth the extra $5 to have a newer tank that doesn't leak. I wouldn't waste the time and effort on a $3 rebate.
