EXTREME YMMV- In-Store Only (can't use BS to see price) - Dewalt Planer DW734 - $250

$250.00

I got a Dewalt planer DW734 today for $250 at my local Home Depot. I also got the 10% military discount, so I ended up paying $225 for it. https://imgur.com/a/MNciAPs​ [imgur.com]

Steps to verify $250 price
1.Use Brickseek to locate an HD with inventory which lists price as Clearance, with no price listed. https://brickseek.com/home-depot-...=100634640
2. If you call the store to verify the price, the automated phone system is not quoting the actual price. In my case, my $250 store's phone system said it's $449, so you'll need to speak with a human if you call the store, but be aware you may be alerting them to the deal and they may keep it for themselves.
3. The better option may be to drive to the store, find the planer and hope it rings up $250.
4. If your HD says $400, check back periodically since I paid $400 about 2 months before seeing that it dropped to $250.

The 735 is without a doubt better, but if you can find the 734 for this price it’s a steal. I got it slightly used in a Craigslist deal and its solid - if you’re a hobbiest it’ll handle whatever you throw at it. If you have the money and can find the 735 below $500 that’s a very good deal as well. I think it’s gone down to $450 or so before.

Says Clearance on BS, but "Limited Stock", website doesn't show any in-stock at that location. Anyone know if that means it's worth driving to find out if they have any?

Dammit you're right. I was just trying to avoid getting sh!t for posting a non-brickseekable deal.... But yeah don't call.

If anyone can weigh in to verify if they are seeing Brickseek reporting it as "clearance" and it turns out to be higher than $250 when they get there, then that might be a way to help everyone understand if it might be worth the drive.

I've checked the price every time i've been at HD since I paid $400 for it, and today it was down to the last one and someone turned it so the price tag was facing the wall---it seemes like maybe someone purposely hid it.

Yes, I saw another thread where people were saying the 735 is better than this 734.
I'm a diy'er that has no business even owning a planer, but i watch carpenters on youtube like it's porn and this was the perfect opportunity for me to dip my toes in the water.
It sounds like serious woodworkers are going to see value in paying extra for the 735.

Just called 5 stores around me. One had 3 in stock at that price but the employee told me they don't have any. Oh well
Well yeah, cause that employee just purchased all of them. Did they at least thank you?

Called (yes yes, I know), the 3 here locally that show Clearance.

2 have them at 400, the other has it at 450.

So unless their lookup in their system, and the physical signs are different, (since I didn't actually go in), it does look like Clearance doesn't always mean that $250 price.

Ahh that sucks. Just to clarify, you meant that you took it to the register and it rang up full price at the register, right?

Reason I ask is that at both Home Depot and Lowes, I've seen it where the price in the app is different than at the register, even when you're in the store and should reasonably expect the app to provide you with the actual price.

Sorry to everyone that's not seeing the discount.... i wonder though if this might be something that could be an indicator that there could be future markdowns in other stores if you keep checking.

Yes, I put it in a cart and brought it to the register.
