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.

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.
