This popular deal is back at $99, but more importantly the filters are $15 off. I have this purifier and it is amazing. The one thing that sucks that i'm sure will get brought up is the wifi connection. It doesn't work - so don't bother with it.

Filters: - Originally $44.99, now $29.99

Just bought one. For those that buy one, when setting up the app, you MUST enable location and use a device that can connect to 2.4gz WiFi. I used my iPad instead of my iPhone. Alexa is a total wreck to use with this and you must use their given phrases but you can definitely get full functionality. Just haven't figured out how to set it into my scenes.

Got a refurb for $72 directly from winix with promo code breathez that will be delivered tomorrow. I'll take 30% off for others flaws who didn't have the patience or knowledge for 2.4ghz wifi or they possibly actually fixed it in the refurb entirely if it's an actual design flaw.
Now just need to figure out if it helps with allergies in the house and figure out how many filters to get!

Qualifies for $50 rebate for PECO (SE PA) as it's an energy star air purifier.

I bought 3 at woot refurb and 1 on winix refurb and had 0 wifi issues. Have 2 more coming tomorrow. Works great and app is great except you can't name rooms but use pre selected drop downs. I don't want 4 labeled as bedroom but master bedroom, guest room, etc.

Filters are not compatible with the C535 which Costco sold previously. They take "A" filters.

If it's a quality generic, yes.

I think so. Someone from previous posted the generic brand from amazon.

I bought the SHARP branded Model FP-F60UW purifier, which I think could be rebranded Winix, but my carbon filter looks like honeycomb shape with visible coal in it, I am wondering if I can get these and replace my filter with this since mine is pretty old now.

That's a washable charcoal filter, and they do sell replacements. You can also buy regular charcoal filters, they work all the same.
