My local HD (New Rochelle, ny) has the ridgid oscillating edge/belt spindle sander marked down to $49 from $199. Price had stopped at $119 a few weeks ago.
They promptly sold out, but i managed to get a price match at a nearby HD with a picture of the price tag. Also foudn out from local manager that alll sold in that district have them marked down at varying degrees. I believe the HD in the Bronx has it at $63 currently.

This is a local markdown, limited to that one store. The item is not discontinued, and it's unlikely other stores will match the price.
HD is dropping the bench tools from just a couple of stores where they have not sold well, according to an HD insider. This is beyond YMMV, well into the "not going to happen" range, as discussed in the prior thread about two months ago when they first dropped the price.
Your affinity for all tools not Ryobi is well known. I clearly stated this is YMMV.
The fact that other stores may/or may not price match is what makes this YMMV. For the record, i did receive a price match from a store that had them listed at regular price.
ADDED: And BTW from people i've talked to at HD, there are other stores marking them down as well, as i mentioned in the OP. Theres atleast one store in the bronx selling them for around $63

Not even sure what you mean by that snipe, and you haven't been here long enough to "know well" anything about me.
Sometimes you can scam HD, depending on the day and mood of the manager. But, according to a Sr. VP at HD, this deal was only available at that one under-performing store, and all other stores have been directed NOT to PM.
This sander was a great deal at the $150 price I posted on Black Friday. I've very happy with mine, and this is a good seller for HD. $50 would be an even better, deal, if more than one person could have gotten it (the three at New Rochelle were bought by one person, who originally posted the deal on another forum).
Since you are new here, to explain, YMMV means that there is some possibility of getting this deal elsewhere, but it's not guaranteed. This deal is therefore not YMMV because it is a fluke - only at the New Rochelle store, and essentially no one else will get this deal.

Do not presume to know how long i have been frequenting this site based on my join date and post count.
I'm glad the Sr. VP at HD took time to speak with you, but as i've mentioned multiple times now, this is not one store exclusive. At the very least, every store in the district this store belongs to is putting these on clearance, and i've already confirmed atleast one additional store with pricing <$70.
I'm pretty certain that makes this more than a fluke, and thus YMMV.
Either way, i'm glad your enjoying your sander, i'm setting mine up later today.
