Geez people. Just buy a regular seed spreader. Cutting open and taping bags? This is easier how?

I haven't used fatwallet much and was wondering how to get this Scott's snap spreader for $10? Is that via fatwallet or somewhere else?

Look for the link in the original post, here as "Linky".

FatWallet is not a marketplace that sells anything, it's a site where people come to post what they feel are good, hot, or exceptional deals.

I bought one of these when the previous thread was up, and then someone posted there that you're supposed to use only Scotts Snap products in it, which are of course higher priced.  Glad to hear you can get around that and use your own mix instead if you want. Thanks for the tip.

Appreciate the tip.  I saw this the last time but passed on it also due to the high price of replacement bags.  Now I'll spring for it!  Thanks.

Thanks OP, great deal. I was planning on paying regular price for one of these this weekend, saved me a lot.

Got one free at Home Depot yesterday. Bought a bag of Snap weed and feed and a plain fertilizer. Needed to buy 2 bags to get the deal. It's a promotion, I think in every state. Got mine in WA. They did this same offer 2 years ago. Now I got 2. Also don't forget to show your military ID or VA ID for additional 10% off.

not only free but you also get 20%-25% off on 2 snap bags (depending on type + lawn fertilizer.)

I expect that the Snap spreaders are somehow set up to dispense certain amounts of product based on
the size of the pellets.  When you dump some other product in the bag, how do you know that you're
laying down the right amount of the product you're dispensing?

In the true FW spirit "HACKING of the lawn spreader part 1" lol

I see it is at $29.99 in VA Lowes. HomeDepot.com doesn't even list this item and not found anywhere in their ad.
Can you please give the links please?

Do Not Buy This Product!!!

They sell this spreader at a cheap price so they can OVERCHARGE you for EVERY bag of Snap-Compatible product you buy.

Spend another $5 on a generic spreader and you'll save $5-$10 on EVERY bag of fertilizer/seed/weed product you buy in the future!!

I have been reusing the 3 bags I bought with my original purchase for 2 years.  The different bags open to different sizes.  I have not killed anything by not having a control over the amount spread.

rated:
Yes this is based off your store.  Looks like in northern VA they are $29.97.  You may want to change the store and see if the price drops.

I keep getting 404 error from the link. Am I missing something here?

It's $29.99 for me.

I can not recommend cutting open the bag as a way to avoid the expensive SNAP seed/fertilizers. For a few reasons:

(1) You cannot control the broadcast rate.
(2) It is not easy to refill the SNAP bag (need to cut it open, obviously). The opening is small and hard to keep open while trying to refill. Furthermore the bag probably needs to be taken off the spreader for the refill. The refill process is likely to be messy and accident prone.
(3) The SNAP bag is flimsy, and cannot take a lot of stuff. So either refill often, or risk the bag collapsing during spreading and spilling the stuff inside. Happened to me more than once.
(4) The SNAP bag cannot be reused too many times without the agitating spinner mechanism becoming problematic and not spin or spin intermittently. Then you will try to shake it to get it spinning again, and risk the bag collapsing.

I got this last year in Home Depot when they had the buy-2-bags-get-free-spreader deal, thinking that I could save on a regular spreader (which is kind of expensive IMO). But I have regretted this. It is no fun to use, and I ended up spending more time on the clean up, annoying refill process, accidental spills, etc. I will be looking for a deal on a decent broadcast spreader.


Just my $0.02.

thanks soft1.  I was interested but already have a 30 lbs spreader so was wondering what the pros and cons were.  

rated:
Home Depot has them for the same price. I was in one this morning returning some things and they had stacks of them advertised for $9.99.

rated:
These things are simply a loss leader for Scotts to get you to buy their overpriced fertilizer bags to go with it.  At no price is this contraption a hot deal.

rated:
Take Gorilla Tape about 8inches long about 2 inches from the top of the bag horizontally then make a 6 inch slit in the center of the tape and it will hold up to a number of refillings. Mine is up to about two dozen refills. Just a tip....Use a bige holed funnel for the refil and you don't spill anything.
