LOCAL DEAL Grill Propane tank refill 1 20lb tank $13.99, 4 20lb tanks filled for $41.97 (must fill 3 in July) West Metro Minneapolis, MN
So I ran out of Propane last night for my grill, which was extra annoying because I have two extra tanks sitting in the garage.

Driving around today I saw the Shell station in Robbinsdale was running a July special -

20 lb Propane tank refill for $13.99. Since a propane refill is generally around $20, exchange $23, that's a slick deal by itself.

So I brought them my 3 tanks and the guy at the counter rang me up for 3 and handed me their "propane punch card" good for a free fill after every 3rd refill. Since I was filling 3 tanks he punched all 3 boxes and said my next fill is free.

The $13.99 price includes tax, so that's 3 fills for $41.97 today, plus a free fill on my next visit! The special runs through the end of July, but the free fill I can get whenever, he said the card never expires.

The store address is 4200 W Broadway, Robbinsdale, MN. I'm apparently not allowed to say anything about how to c o n f i rm this deal without incurring the wrath of the Slick Trolls, so you'll just have to drive over there or look up their number yourself. The actual name of the business is "Sipes Car Care Center" which is a Shell franchise station.

You're welcome, I'm just glad I got the forum rules right after 3 tries.

Do they actually fill the tank with 20lb, or stop at 13/15/17 pounds? Most of the exchanges in my neck of the woods will not have anywhere near the capacity in the tank, so I go to a place that fills it up to capacity with a scale to prove it.

I wish my Shell was running this deal!

They've got the scale to prove it.

I'm happy to go anywhere that fills to avoid the rip off exchange places. The big local one here Blue Rhino has changed their fill policy (in very small print on the sign) to 18lbs. But they still charge $3-5 more than an exchange.
