Dewalt DWS780 Sliding Dual Bevel Miter Saw $432 + tax at Lowe's YMMV

I was looking to get a sliding miter saw after returning a one day old Ridgid non-sliding at my local Lowe's. They had a deal for a DWS709 (with table) and a DWS779 for $399 so I researched about it but most of the reviews I saw online recommended to step up to a DWS780 which had the features I wanted/needed. However, I didn't want to pay $599 plus tax.

A quick Google of "DWS780" shows that JB Tools Set is currently selling it for $479.99 so I thought, that was a good price, however, I checked JB's reviews and it was a mixed bag so I decided to go to Lowe's online to chat and see if they could price match it.

To make the story short, they gave me a 110% price match so I paid about $431.xx + tax from $599!

nice, but they are only supposed to price match the extra 10% if it's a B&M store that is near you, but the 100% pm should be easily replicable

That's a great price! Probably not quite repeatable for most though as the 110% PM is generally only for local competitors with it in stock, online competitors they will generally only match the price, not beat it. A $50 off $250 coupon could make up for it (or make it a crazy good deal if you're able to get the 110% PM).

Tempting to buy this saw again at this price... I bought one a few years back and ended up returning it because I couldn't quite find a place in my shop at the time to accommodate it, scored a new dw713 for $170 shipped and no tax that has been a great saw, I don't cut large stock enough to need a slider but I do miss being able to cut quick dados, lap joints etc with the depth stop and slide. I imagine the saw will be just as much of a behemoth this time around though and since I'm now the proud owner of a proper table saw there's really no need. TU for a good find.

I told the chat representative that JB tools are not local to me - but she gave me 110% price match. I would be happy if they price matched it even if I paid tax since I had a Lowe's card which is zero interest for six months. But when the rep said, she's giving me 110% - I knew I hit the jackpot!

Just bought it at the $431.xx + TAX. Lowe's agent on the phone initially said it would just be 100% match, but after she spoke with the local store manager they matched the 110%.

Thanks OP!

I'll give you a TU because I'm watching for deals on this saw. But I'm waiting on the free stand deal, which is more slick for me since I'm getting it no matter what.

If Amazon does price match this then I'm going to pull the trigger.

Lowes has the free stand promotion going right now. I used the 10% off coupon and got the DWS780 and the DWX723 for $580.88 out the door.

I ditched on my Dewalt stand on CL months ago. Finally built myself a Paulk Total Station and it's spectacular!

Yeah I ended up getting the saw and stand at home depot about a month ago. Great saw!

I took back the fixed stand and got the rolling stand... so much better! In my small 2 car garage it's a necessity.
