For those interested...
This popular deal is coming back. I just saw it advertised in the Costco mail flyer for online-only, member-only deals for March.
Valid deal dates 3/3/21 - 3/28/21 AS SUPPLIES LAST.
This might go in and out of stock throughout the period, so keep checking back if you need to during the sale time frame.
Please do not expire the deal before 3/29/21 for temporarily OOS situations.
True Sinewave matters with some equipment, but not necessary for all purposes. There are "simulated" Sinewave versions and some other basic UPS models with same 1500VA/900W that go on sale for around $100 if you do not want to pay for true Sinewave. There is always back and forth debate about it.
Amazon did not have it on sale for as low or lower price this past BF, for those who were hoping/expecting it based on 2 years ago as they posted the last time this deal hit.
Regular Costco price $179.99
Sale price: $149.99 after instant savings. Ships free. (starting 3/3/21)
Contrary to someone's posts in this thread:
I just verified this information with CyberPower's Technical support. I even called back a 2nd time and verified it with a different agent.
- The UPS Batteries are stated as average life span is 3-6 years in the manual.
- Batteries are covered for the full 3-year warranty period.
- As they are user-replaceable for this model, CyberPower will ship you replacement batteries without you needing to ship the UPS unit to them.
CyberPower's site also mentions battery coverage under the warranty in the 2nd paragraph under Product Overview
I have had a successful warranty claim for UPS batteries failing in the past.
I read the warranty terms and there is no exclusion as a normal use/wear/consumable item for batteries in the User Manual pdf within the "What is not covered?" section.
The "What is covered?" section also states that the connected equipment is covered as well as defects of the UPS unit, depending on the determination of CyberPower, as there are situations they can void the coverage for. Read the attached manual if this interests you. Lots of details, and hoops, only for market value- if approved, so I would not be expecting or basing my purchase on this coverage. I would try, if appropriate, but not hold my breath.
All of the like items from CyberPower are shown to include battery coverage right in their product description on the product pages on Amazon. Also, I see reviews mentioning warranty replacement for defective batteries.
Should anyone who is not already convinced of the facts I have stated and linked to, please contact CyberPower to get confirmation of batteries being covered, and that they can ship them to you without returning the whole unit if they are not holding a proper charge within the warranty of 3-years. Press option 1 for Tech support @ 1+ (877) 297 6937. They state they will assist you in how to diagnose on your own and report the data to get it approved on the phone if it is only a battery problem.
I am not affiliated with CyberPower nor with SD. You do not need to take my word or that of the master debater who is making their own warranty exclusion terms up with no proof. Get your own peace of mind.
This falls under the purvey of Costco's Satisfaction Guarantee
. There is not a 90-day limit for returns. The 3-year warranty might be extended up to 2 additional years when purchased using your Costco Citicard as well. I am not certain if it maxes out at 4 years, or if it would get you all the way to 5 years. I am only going to check into this if I purchase one using my card and need to deal with a breakdown after the mfg warranty lapses. Currently, I do not need one and am only here to share the sale price.
I've reported the false battery-exclusion claims to CyberPower for them to consider having SD remove the comments. That is all I can do to try to return sanity in this thread.
