Combine Sakrete and Quickrete?
 
Can I combine Sakrete and Quickrete. They're just brand names, I assume the underlying products are essentially identical, right? I'm referring to the most basic concrete here, just the normal stuff.

I ask because Home Depot sells Sakrete and Lowes sells Quickrete. Both had an awesome sale up through last week, but now HD's has ended. I assume Lowe's has too (I need to call), but on the off-chance that is hasn't, I'm just curious if I can shop back and forth and combine the too.

...in a single pour obviously, I don't mean for fundamentally different parts of the job (foundation, wall fill, hearth).

Thanks.

You might find color differences, heck I found annoying color differences in the same brand. You guessed it: grey mortar next to beige mortar. But aside from aggregate sourcing, it's the same stuff.
