I know these Lowes deals can be few and far between depending on the store but I do appreciate when people post them and I'm able to find them. My local Lowes had this Shop vac on sale for $79.60 with 1 in stock. I ended up getting it for $59 (or $65 if I returned it) with a $20 off $100 coupon (eBay if you need one) because I had some other things to buy.

Nice improvements:

1. Accessories (tips?) stored in a compartment at the back (no longer knocking them off)
2. Place to wind the cord
3. 2.5" hose (not necessarily an improvement but a requirement for me)
4. Lower profile with wheels an casters is not top heavy and tipsy like my old one.
5. Motor is much quieter than my old model but still hated by the dog.

There are many reviews stating issues with the hose breaking at the connector. I did some quick vacuuming and mine seems pretty stout however I can see where people may have a problem if they are storing the vac with the hose attached and coiled at a sharp angle while constantly bumping into it or bumping it into things. The hose and connector are two separate pieces unlike my previous model so they would be more prone to breakage.

Only 6 stores show in stock nationwide at that price. Another 7 show limited stock. In my experience "limited stock" usually shows an inventory of just 1, and is very hit or miss, more miss.

Brickseek is accurate on price, although it may only be updated once or twice a day depending on your membership level. I have a premium membership and I think it's twice a day for me, more often if an extreme member but I could be wrong. Inventory updating is nearly real-time, and is accurately updated from Walmarts numbers. That doesn't mean that Walmart themselves keep accurate inventory numbers though.

Also, I purchased last night and my store WAS showing $79.60 online and is back up to $199 today. I didn't check to see if Brickseek was showing the same price last night. I know their inventory has been off on a lot of smaller items like tile, etc. but I've had good luck with larger items as they seem harder to "lose".
