Hey everyone, I was browsing in my local Walmart stores to find the previously posted $109 PS80519 pressure washer
and I found that the clearance pressure washers widely vary from store to store but there are potentially some really good deals. None of the three that I bought had any clearance stickers or prices on them, they actually sat on the shelves with the full price stickers sitting right below them. I'm not saying these are price m!stakes but for whatever reason they weren't marked on clearance. I went to 3 different stores and they each had 3 different ones discounted (one store had 2 of them discounted but only 1 of them in stock).
you can buy at one store and return at another for a lower price but YMMV
so make sure that when you attempt this that you use two different forms of payment and tell them that you used the wrong card on your original purchase that you want to return it and purchase it again using a different form of payment. Could be a rewarding process but it certainly requires extra work if it's out of stock at the store with the lowest price.
Use brickseek [brickseek.com]
to assist you in your searches but also USE THE WALMART APP!
I used brickseek initially to find the $109 deal but then after finding other deals in person I expanded my search to include other models. Brickseek helped me figure out what the prices were for each store but the inventory on Brickseek didn't always match what I found in person and or what I found using the Walmart app so YMMV using each avenue.
I used the app and searched "pressure washer" and then filtered the results to show what was available "At Your Store" and I kept changing my local store to different stores nearby to see what their local prices and options were. Normally if your store is out of stock on an item it won't even list it to begin with. What I found strange was that some stores were listing different models than each other but some had "not in stock" and low prices next to them, which Brickseek also showed those prices and 0 inventory. When I went to one of those stores though it DID have that item in stock on the shelf, which made me think that if the store shows "not in stock" but still lists the item, maybe there is a chance that it actually is there.
Originally in person I found and purchased the 2700 psi model with the 189cc Subaru motor for $154, the 2700 psi model with the OHV Honda motor for $169, and the 3000 psi model for $154. Since then I have purchased the 3000 and the Subaru for $74 and the Honda for $79, the prices have continued to drop since the original post. Does anyone have any experience with these? I decided to keep the Subaru rather than the 3000 Honda clone or the 2700 Honda. I liked the idea of the separate detergent tank on the Subaru.
>> IF YOU CAN'T FIND THE LOCATION OF THE PRESSURE WASHERS IN STORE CHECK HERE: <<
1. AUTO SECTION NEXT TO AIR COMPRESSORS
2. AUTO/TIRE COUNTER, BEHIND THE DESK
3. ASK AN AUTO EMPLOYEE TO CHECK THEIR AUTO PARTS STOCK ROOM
4. ASK AN EMPLOYEE TO CHECK OUT BEHIND THE STORE IN THE WAREHOUSE
5. CHECK THE CLEARANCE SECTION OF THE STORE
UPDATE: Using the Walmart app I was able to find a store locally that had the 3000 psi and the 2700 Subaru priced at $74 each, which was confirmed using Brickseek. With the store manager's permission I was able to return my original $154 Subaru and $154 3000 psi at that store and then purchased them again for the $74 price because they were listed as IN STOCK at that store using the Walmart app!

I found this listed as low as $20 in Morrow, GA

I also found this listed as low as $20 in Morrow, GA

PSI CARB-compliant Pressure Washer w/175cc Motor - $74
Credit: Thank you to user: blackb13 for finding this one as well!
Mine were all found and purchased in the 35801 area. I know that even though I listed this as VERY YMMV there will be people that give TDs because their stores don't have them in stock or whatever. Oh well, boo hoo. I wasn't going to post these originally but I decided that I would post them in hopes that others can also replicate the deals.
Good luck! Let me know what you find!
