What is up with the MBS 40? Getting hard to find.

Been wanting to buy the MES 40, but I cannot find them locally.  Seems no one carries that model or they have been sold out for months.  I could buy online, but the few places that have it in stock will kill me with the shipping charges.

I can find the Original Bradley at a couple places as well as the MES 30, but the 40 is the one I really want to get.

Anyone else having this problem?  Or is it just a local thing?

They've been getting thin since the middle of summer.  I have read about a few people still finding them at Sams.  I bought a used one for $100 and have seen a couple for around $200.

I was going to tell you to try CraigsList until I saw you're in AK..

Might be between models. Seems about that time of the year.

I want one too----I'll wait another month or so.

I'm tired of not being able to get 10 pounds of beef sticks in, and cutting rib racks in half !!!!!

Wahhhhhhhh-
-I want an MES 40 !!!!!

Sams doe not even have it listed anymore.  It was there, but out of stock on their site just last week.

I had to look back and see when I got my MES 30".  I was thinking it was around March but it was actually January.  I got my 30" at Home Depot and right after I got it people started seeing the 40" at Sams.  It was a month or so before they were everywhere.

So historically I would say it could be January or February before we see a new model.

I'm guessing Late October or November.

Bass Pro shops seems to be the only one listing it at the moment.  Price is $429.99 plus shipping = about $466.

URL is http://tinyurl.com/basspro40
 

A while back, I thought I saw it listed at Sam's for $299.

Happy hunting.

I bought mine about 6 weeks ago at the Cabela's store here in Omaha, 40" stainless, glass door and 1200 watt model. Kind of expensive though, $399.00 plus $50.00 for a two year extended warranty (in case of wiring problems).

When I bought mine in August, they only had 2 left at the Sam's by me.  I was told they were a seasonal item, and they were clearing them out at $242.00.  Hopefully they will restock again in spring.  But it seems all the good products there get discontinued after a while for some reason.

Sams works on volume sales .If they are selling alot of an item they will usually pick it up again the following year. if sales are slow it's not brought back.

I just picked up one of these at my local Sam's today in Charlotte, NC.  I have been checking them for a few weeks and they got 8 in today.

I will be setting it up later this week and look forward to chatting with you guys about it and trying it out.

Although members here don't see it this way Retailers do, BBQ and Grilling items are considered summer merchandise.  

You will be lucky to find one at Sam's or the like until they start getting in their summer stock after the Christmas Sales Season and probably not until after the 1st of the year as they do not like paying taxes on inventory on hand January 1st.   Most states require them to report what is on hand Jan. 1st for taxes...

Sams Club in O'Fallon, IL also just got 8 in.  The price was 298 and some change.  This appears to have a couple new features - a remote control and wheels on the back fro moving the unit.

Looks like there may be a chance of getting a 40 in time for Thanksgiving.

Boy did I call that one in Post #3 and Post #6 on this very thread!

Now all I have to do is get one of my area Sam's to get some in.
