Another Delivery Fail by Home Depot

Express delivery, to my zip code, for the 27th. $62 and change. (click to enlarge)
Not a major appliance this time. I just wanted to buy a couple of outdoor trash/recycling bins. I’d rather not strap them to the roof of my car, and was hoping for home delivery. Home Depot offers delivery! But wait, what’s going on here.



I click to continue, enter my email address. Nothing has changed. Same products, same delivery zip code, same date. And look at this price.

Same zip, same products — $88.43?
I’m not sure what I’ll do next. Maybe I’ll just try the local hardware shop. Chances are they aren’t operated by guys who turn up their noses at $26.

Postscript
I went to the local hardware store. Great people, we’ve done lots of business with them in the past. I paid significantly more — but! — I got a much better product, and they delivered them right to my driveway the next day.
