3M quartz pricing

I've found a distributor in the N NJ/NYC area for the 3M
Grade T. He's asking $30.70 per 50lbs p/up, 3 bag minimum.

Several members here have regular access to a supply of this stuff. I just wanted to compare prices and wondered if this is a fair price. I thought it was cheaper than this.

$26 per bag after tax in California. There must be oodles of distributors in the NYC area -- I'd call around some more.

Yeah, but it is all gone. I think it would be a good idea to call them and ask if they're gonna sell T grade in the future.

It's all gone. It was stock they wanted to get rid of. Not pricing you'll see every day.

count yourselves lucky. here in K.C. only a couple places stock it, and the cheapest and most readily available one costs $38 and change BEFORE tax. I was lucky enough to jump on that $22 free shipping thing and snagged three bags. I'm hoping it's enough.

Is that's the priced shipped?? If so that beats the NJ price and it's delivered to your door.

One and the same. He quoted me $30.70 p/u in Hasbrouck Heights. How old is the $26 quote? Did you buy any?

They didn't mention a shipping cost and I didn't ask. I'll find out when it shows up and report back.

No I did not buy any, I changed my mind and went with pool filter sand at $7 for 50lbs.

$30 sounds good to me. The store in this area wanted $38 where they wanted just $30 last month when I checked. I think it's going up. If I could grab it locally for $30, I would.
