    Ok I have had a great experience from Synatek. That’s why I feel bad about making a switch to another supplier. I go through 300 bags a round. The price I was quoted on all mineral and slow release was two bucks a bag difference. That’s close to 900 bucks a round difference. What would you all do? I guess this is how they get you. Make you all buddy buddy. But I have a family to think of and every penny counts. Your opinion is welcomed. It can add up to over 4K a year savings. They will deliver also right to my door. This is the company offering better prices.https://www.genesisturfgrass.com/products/

    so your saying that they charged you $2 more a bag than the quoted you. And you never asked them why

    No one supplier is cheaper by two bucks a bag for the same analysis

    Urea prices and shipping costs are behind the increases in fertilizers.
    I would talk to SiteOne about Screamin' Green.

    Your a big fan of screaming green. That’s cool but I am on a very tight budget. So what would you do if your offered a two buck difference per bag for essentially the same product?

    Talk to your original dealer and see if they can do any better.

    Well...at the end of the day, business is business. Gotta go where the money is. Maybe after a year of losing your business, they'll find some wiggle room.
