[Home Depot] [Yorkdale] Ryobi 8amp Jet Fan Blower $35

Ryobi 8 amp Jet Fan Blower (i.e. leaf blower)
https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.8amp ... 06812.html

Marked at clearance of $69.97 (same price as online), then there was a sign on the pile saying that they were $34.98.

Note: they ring up at $69.97, but the cashier corrected the price immediately. I didn't ask for the SCOP, because he didn't even check the price - he just took my word for it. Good customer service shouldn't be penalized.

Found at the Yorkdale location of Home Depot. There were about 6 left after I bought mine.

Probably not the best blower, but might be good enough. And hard to go wrong for $35!

For this price it's probably worth it to use to dry vehicles off after washing. I use a corded leaf blower to dry my motorbike off after a wash to stop water drop stains.

great price, will check out my local HD - do you think if you scanned your receipt they would price match at another HD?

Hi Wassifdurrani,

I'm the manager at Richmond Home Depot and I can certainly tell you that having a scanned receipt will not work for price matching. We require a physical copy.

But if we see a picture of price from the competition we will meet and possibly beat (product cannot be on clearance) the price the second we see that it is indeed the exact same model #.

What if its a picture of a receipt from another HD ; could it then be PM'd? An RFD posted a receipt from the Surrey location for a pressure washer and I tried using that at the Burnaby location but got rejected. They said its probably an instore pricing in which the store mgr can set and they can't match it.

Hi Hesp,

What we need is a picture of the price tag on the shelf or the box, no receipts with the markdowns.

There are manager promo markdowns we make just to make stuff move a bit faster that we take a hit on our bottom line. For instance, if I had 50 of something and only sold 1 over the 2 months, that would mean their is either a pricing issue or not enough people know of its existence. I would then move it to a popular selling location and knock off 10-50% to help it sell through faster.

Wow, a manager of home depot is here. Welcome to rfd.

I have a question about the price matching with receipt. Will you price match with a local competitor if I show you a physical receipt of the item purchased from that competitor? The reason I asked is that I tried price match with Canadian Tire on a power tool set. The store associate looked through Canadian Tire website, confirmed model is the same, but refused PM because he can only price match with whatever price on the website, not with the price showing on the receipt. Is that true the price match only valid over the competitor's website price?


Thank you for answering.

Thanks OP. Picked one up today. Still 5 left. Scanned at $69.97 and I told cashier about price of $34.98. Manager came to override price and I asked for SCOP and was shot down.

Any chance you took a picture of the sign on the pile? Might help the rest of us if you did.

Too bad Lowes doesn't have it would have asked for image of receipt and price matched them.

HD doesn't even price match their own stores, pretty sad. This is why I rarely jump on a HD deal.

Hi Alex,
Store policy is not based off of receipts. If it's apples to apples and you are able to show me a physical price tag or a printed quote with the exact model number then we can do a PM. What we often see is someone goes to an appliance store and they get a printed quote of a fridge/stove/dishwasher/etc. We will meet and beat the price as the quote has the model number printed on it.

A few weeks ago I had to do a $500 markdown because Lowe's had their John Deere tractors drop in price and just happened to be the same time our promo ended so our price went back up. On top of that there was a no tax event going (12% off) so I had to meet and beat all of that. I didn't mind doing the markdown because I had a copy of the Lowe's flyer to justify it.

If you came in with a digital picture of a receipt I'd tell you get lost as pictures can be manipulated and they often are missing crucial information. I had to turn away a customer the other day because he had a price tag from Costco for a washer. The tag didn't say anything about the model #. I punched in the exact model # into the costco.ca website and it showed the price to be $50 more expensive that what they paid in my store. I told him to get a picture of the model # tag from the display at costco and I'll be happy to give him the price that Costco offered.

Half of my day is dealing with customers wanting a reduction in price. I completely see where they are coming from as I am a penny pinching consumer too when I do renovations, but I just need basic proof for me to justify giving you a markdown.

So to sum this up, get a quote not a receipt! Something that has the exact model and pricing. You give me that and I'll have to do a markdown.

Come on in to my store. I'll give you the grand tour at Richmond Home Depot.

The only policy that is in place with the Home Depot is that we cannot solicit. I can wholeheartedly talk to you about anything as customer relations is part of my job.
