Big lots R134a $8.00 a can

Turbofiat on Tue July 12, 2011 10:50 AM User is offline

In case any of you guys didn't know this, Big Lots has R134a on sale for $8.00 for a 12 oz can. I picked up 10 cans one day thinking they were going to sell out but went back a week later and they still had more. So I picked up 4 more cans.

Last time they had R134a, they sold out in one day. They said the local A/C tech (believe the same guy who charged me $130 to fix my Explorer) bought every can they had.

$8.00 a can is like paying $320.00 for a 30 lb cylinder. It's easy to buy cylinders for less than $200 now so whoever bought all the cans for professional use wasn't very good at math.

Advance used to have 30 pound cylinders behind the counter, and their price on them was rather good.

This was a huge find for me. I am trying fix the AC on my '00 chevy conversion van. I think it holds about 3.5 lbs.

I just picked up 6 cans from Big Lots for $8 each. I think it is like $11 at wal mart.

No cans at the local Big Lots last night. 20% off sale there today BTW.
