Price Mistake. When added to cart it shows $2,650 price.

Thanks for posting. Would have been a very slick deal.

It shows $827 when added to cart for me.... Try another web browser?

Call them or something. I don't think it is a price mistake as its in the clearance section.

I am at the final "submit order" page and i have:
Subtotal $827.50
Tax: $81.57
Freight: $143.54
* Total Cost: $1,052.61

Says shipping will be via UPS ground but this thing weighs 300 lbs so probably not.
This is what is holding me back:

*Total Cost includes estimated tax and freight amounts, if applicable. Your invoice will reflect final tax and freight charges on the items shipped.

What if the price quoted is via UPS and when i get the invoice I get charged a bazillion dollars for truck freight because they can't ship it via UPS?

It came up with the $2650 price at the next page. It shows $827 up until you go to pay for it, then the price changes. At least it did for me. I will stop in a local store latter today to see if I can get the price through the store.

Anyone know if they will do a ship to store with out the freight costs? This is a 300 pound monster, and freight would be VERY expensive.

Maybe I'm having problems because I had to create a new account? Some functions are not available on their Web site until I'm "verified". I need a generator for my business, and this would be a smoking hot deal!

If you want to secure the deal, I'd place an order now and call them tomorrow to verify shipping. If they do use UPS, it would be UPS freight.

I ordered one because I'm probably just being paranoid about the shipping. Thanks again. Repped for a killer deal.
