YMMV. Brand may vary base on your location.
Easiest way to check to see which brand your Lowes carries is to search concrete mix.

You get 30% off any time if you buy two pallets, 84 bags. And military discount applies in addition to that so you wind up at 37% off. Of course your deal is much better if you don't need huge amounts and you can find it.

Page shows the 'buy in bulk and save' but then at the bottom this - "Buy In Bulk Discount not available during promotion".

Damn SD. I'm honestly considering buying a few bags even though I currently have no use for them whatsoever.

Thankfully it's raining and I don't have a cover for my pickup bed right now, lol.

Was planning to buy 50lb bags to do a 12X12 shed, but in store had the 80lb bags cheaper. More and cheaper is a real winner.

It took 2 hours to mix about 70 bags in the 3.5 cubic foot harbour freight mixer.

Not too bad of a job with some help.

Funny that this set off my deal alert while doing the project. Glad I got the deal yesterday too.

Yeah, I didn't think they'd take 30% off of the promotion price, the 30% deal is off of the regular price anytime. You've just got to buy a lot to get it.

What do you mean by cheaper in store? How much was each bag in store?
TIA

Home depot is better as it is only a single pallet. Makes sense to since you can't haul two pallets in a pickup.

I think he/she was stating that the 80 lbs bags are cheaper than the 50 lbs bags.

I'll say. Most pickups can't haul 1 pallet. With the pallet included you're looking at 3400lbs. That's usually 1T territory.

Nice. I did a 10x8 shed last year when Lowe's had the same concrete deal with the harbor freight mixer. Took me about 6 hours to do everything myself. Everything is holding up fine. No cracks or issues. Very satisfied.

How thick did you build it? 4" or less?
