    Why is MSRP so high on the Weber website?

    I was looking at WSM's on the Weber (US) website and thought I struck a deal when I saw $349 MSRP. But when I clicked it, it was the 18". the 22" is $499 on their website. Is there going to be an increase in price coming? Or has it always been like this?

    Mike as far as I know it has always been like this. For example. When the 14 WSM first came out the MSRP was (and still is) 219, but most brick and mortar stores and online outlets sell them for 199. As for the WSM you can figure 199 for the 14, 299 for the 18 and 399 for the 22. I believe that there is a minimum price Weber retailers can sell for (except clearance and brick and mortar stores) so it is unlikely you will find a better price listed above on line. Hope that answers your questions

    Something's not right, cause you can get a better deal on Amazon and support this site.

    Thanks for the answer. I was just nervous that where was going to be a price increase soon. I've been debating whether or not to get a WSM and if there was going to be a $100 increase on the 22" I would've pulled the trigger. I guess I'll go back to debating if I should get one or not!

    Mike, prices don't go down! You can't enjoy the WSM if you haven't bought it. Enjoy life, NOW. Buy today and smoke tomorrow.

    Well...if the price of steel begins to creep up, as is already being reported by some, perhaps Weber will have to increase prices. We'll see...but I would buy now!
