So there I was meandering through the Costco on Regent today, when I spot what looks an awful lot like a Big Green Egg on display. I thought, “no, it must be a knock off…” and I look up and it IS the real deal. A large BGE including nest and side tables for $899. Several hundred dollars cheaper than what you would pay if you bought the same thing through Winnipeg’s only authorized dealer, Hearth and Patio.
There’s one catch, though. It’s a great deal for sure, but a Big Green Egg representative has confirmed on the GreenEggers.com forum that Costco is not an authorized dealer of The Big Green Egg and therefore these units will not carry the lifetime warranty that comes with purchasing through an authorized dealer.

I’m not going to get into whether BGE should or shouldn’t stand by their product regardless of where they are being sold – just be aware that this great price comes with a catch. If you aren’t worried about having a lifetime warranty, then this is a great opportunity to get your own BGE at a great price.
