Deal Details

I was at two Metro Detroit Home Depot stores (Madison Heights and Troy) and both had a the RIDGID 3,300 psi 3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer for $299 in-store (was $749) YMMV. I would have purchased one but picked up a Homelite pressure washer last year.

EDIT - Added Inventory Checker but I have to say your results may vary as both stores metro Detroit Home Depot stores (Madison Heights and Troy, MI) that I was at today had at least the display model. You may even be able to negotiage a lower price on a display model if a part(s), manual and etc. is missing. Then call the manufacturer to indicate you purchased a display model that had missing part(s) and ask that they send you replacement part(s).

EDIT 12/26 - Picked up one at Conference,MI (last one)for $250+tax (missing nozzle kit and wand extender to which they offered 50% of assessories) that still was marker $750. Sales clerk just about fell over.

EDIT 12/26 - Called Ridgid while I was in store to ask if they replaced missing accessories and they said they did not on display models. So you will need to work with the store manager on additional discounts.

There may be RIDGID 3,300 psi, 3 GPM Gas Pressure Washers still available for $299, but perhaps not model # RD80706. It’s my understanding that model RD80702 which has a fuel injection system, as well as other comparable models have been showing up either mismarked or marked down at many stores nationally, but not included in an inventory system.

You may find strays not listed in HD’s inventory that are boxed and shrink wrapped stored high up on shelves around the Home and Garden area and the Paint Department area (many HD’s used to sell pressure washers in the paint department). These may very well scan at the discounted $299 price.

You may find some of these as a display items or formerly display items. They can be a great deal. Of course these may be without some accessories and/or manuals, but you can always call Ridgid’s Customer Service and tell them that the items were missing in the box and that HD has no more stock and has discontinued the pressure washer.

The Minneapolis Home Depot on New Brighton Blvd (Quarry shopping center) showed two in stock on the inventory checker and indeed they had two new ones in stock. The price was at the $299.99 clearance. I didn't see any other stores showing inventory in the area.

They now have one in the box and the display. One of the boxes had been opened so I took the sealed one. I decided to buy now while I can still get one and return it within 90 days if I change my mind. I didn't have a coupon, but I figured I can do a return and re-buy if I get a coupon.

The engine has electronic fuel injection which is very unusual for a small engine.

If you subscribe to magazines like Motor Trend, Car and Driver or Popular Mechanics, Handyman there usually is a Harbor Freight 20% off coupon towards the back of the magazine.

There is an unused return model in Topeka, KS that is missing the gun wand, nozzles, pump oil cap, oil, AND has a cutoff spark plug wire. Manager refused to mark anything off because the 'store had to eat the difference' if they discount on top of corporate clearance. Even said the spark plug wire would most likely not be fixed under warranty because it was abuse. They were honestly going to sell a product without most accessories and wouldn't work right out of the gate without any additional discount.

It wasn't worth another 45 minutes arguing for me but maybe someone else is more skilled at the art of the deal.

Thanks WannabeTechie2!

I called the store this morning to confirm the stock and price. Immediately drove the 30 miles this AM and picked one up. The inventory checker showed only 2 in stock at the Canal Winchester Ohio Home Depot and 1 at another location in central Ohio. At check out the guy who helped me load it said they sold the other one 10 minutes before me, because he loaded it in a truck.

The checkout girl gave me some grief about the Lowe's 10% off coupon I purchased this morning for $3. When I protested a little, another manager intervened and said it was okay.

Nice Power Washer for $287 out the door.

Edit in hopes of being helpful to someone: The other one that the inventory checker said was available in central Ohio was at the Westerville Ohio store.

I called 10-15 stores this morning and found one that had a display model that was almost completely there. The only main thing it was missing were the nozzle tips, which the guy threw in a new pack off the shelf. He said the couple other minor things it was missing I could call Ridgid and they would send them out. Only one store did I find one in a box, which I got also. Not sure what I am going to do with the display model one.

In my calling around, I had a manager tell me the same thing when I inquired about giving a discount for one missing some pieces. They said they wouldn't give a discount because they would have to eat it.

Just for anyone else's info, the Lowe's coupon is available at the post office for free. Now they have gone to a system where you have to register it online and they will email you the coupon, which sucks. But it is a good idea to have one of those chambered for when a deal pops up.

The 20% Harbor Freight coupon is a tougher sell, but usually the manager will allow it if you are buying something more expensive. So just bring both, just in case.

I'm pretty sure I have some Harbor Freight coupons at home. I have never tried them at Home Depot and have heard mixed reports on them working. Harbor Freight does carry pressure washers.

My understanding is Home Depot won't take the printed Lowe's coupons as it would be easy to print extras or make copies. The last batch of Lowe's coupons I had expired in August. Where are the folks on Ebay getting the actual coupons that expire on 2/15/1023?

Interesting. Last time I was in there they told me to just print it out and they would accept it. Maybe they changed the policy. That stinks, cause I was about to start buying large amounts of lumber.

And I got the floor model.

By the time I got there the floor model was the only one left, and there was a guy from Iowa that had dibs. He found one and bought it over the phone from his local HD in Iowa, and I got the floor model.

Turns out they had the smaller unit out in the garden center, which we had to pilfer the wand and nozzles from, but I got a complete unit.

Thanks OP and Thank you local MN person that directed me to HD at the Quarry, and good to meet you Iowa guy!!
