always love when "BOGO" stands for "buy one get one", not "buy one get one................half off"

*dreams of bogi*

Looks like right time to repaint the wood trim outside.
BOGO but spend full price on the primer... suppose that’s the draw they’re looking for.

BOGO also applied to the primer the last 2 sales I bought at.

I stocked up last time and had untinted paint that was 120 days old. They accepted the return no problem despite their policy being 60 days + 25% restocking fee. Very pleased with their customer service!

Hi Everyone,
Me an missus are planning to paint our house (2500 sqft) in next month or so and timing of the sale is perfect. But we are newbies (never done painting before).

I have few questions for the experts:
1. Which is a better brand? Dulux or Behr's (could use Lowes signup coupon to bring down the price) or Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams (they also have sales often)?
2. Should I get Matt finish or semi-gloss?
3. Is this Dulux deal a good value for money? Or should we wait for better deal.
4. Any pro-tips regarding buying paint rollers and other accessories or anything in general?

1) Have used Dulux and Sherwin. Both seem OK for the price when on sale. No experience with Behr but have heard the same issues with coverage from others.

2) Matt is typically for ceilings while semi gloss for trim around doors and windows or baseboard. Eggshell for walls. Dulux has a special line of paint specifically for kitchen and bath (supposed to be better for moisture).

3) Dulux is good value when there's a BOGO. This is THE time to buy Dulux paints. Sherwin is not bad either when they have 35-40% off. You can stack Sherwin with a $10 email signup coupon.

4) I've used the Dulux branded rollers and paint brushes with no issue. They are good value if they are included in the BOGO...usually they are. Of course you can spend a lot more money on the high end Purdy stuff...but Dulux brushes are mid-range imo. Obviously technique plays a part in it...if you have bad technique then the best brush won't help you much.

My only protip is to use Frog Tape when taping! Expensive but wow does it work well. Very clean lines and very "forgiving". You can be a bit more messy and the tape will block out any excess paint.

Thanks OP, currently renovating bathroom and this deal is coming in handy

Walked into my local Dulux store yesterday, was recommended that I use their "Kitchen and Bath" product - for both wall and ceiling. Staff there said their Diamond product lacks mildewcide and would not recommend it for high moisture bathroom. While I like saving ($66.99 vs Diamond $78.99), is the staff right, and am I going to end up using more as Diamond I imagine is truly a single-coat application ?

Since you've never painted before, I would recommend you start painting a room that is the least important to you. A room where you can practice on that wouldn't be as big a deal to have a few flaws in the job done.
This way you can learn from your mistakes and when you tackle more important rooms, you'll know better what to do and what to avoid.

Awesome! I'm using BM for all the halls in my home and then using Dulux for the bedrooms. I messed up and didn't buy enough BM at the last sale.
