[Walmart] Hot: iRobot Roomba 801- $290 Clearance (from $550) *Nation Wide, but Locations Specific* (Possibly even $175 at some!!)

Was looking at the Costco thread for $349 for the 805 model and found this! This is the same machine but excludes the virtual walls. If you need the virtual walls, the Costco deal is probably better, but I went for this one.

It's $399 online, but $290 in most stores, $349 in others per Stocktrack:
https://stocktrack.ca/?s=wm&upc=88515501312

https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/irobot-roo ... 0197512301

Checked random cities and can confirm its nationwide based on Stocktrack, you just have to find the right location.


Edit:
Per the user below some locations have it for $175!

Does anyone know of I buy it at another WM store and refund it at the Repentigny store, will they let me re-buy it at the 175$ price? I know, kinda gaming the system, but I don't understand how 2 stores within driving distance of each other have different prices. It's 349$ at all other Quebec stores. At 175$, it's in range of the cheap Chinese brand models Amazon sells.

You can definitely try to buy even online, then do return rebuy.
I personally recently bought Blendtec Twister jar for $170 online, returned to store where it showed $25 price, then came a few minutes later and asked different CSR if I can buy it and bought it for $25.

I can only see this Roomba for $350 in Ottawa area though.

YMMV... Online orders must go back to their warehouse. I recently tried this and they werent be able to sell it back to me.

They will try to find excuses if they don't want to sell it for low price when you come and tell them that it's cheaper in store than what you paid online.
I didn't tell them anything, just returned and asked different person several minutes later if I can buy that item that you have on return counter. Technically, nothing stops them from selling it again and it doesn't have to go to the warehouse (unless this item is not sold in their store and they don't have price for it, but if it's listed on stocktrack then it's all good)

Official Walmart policy is indeed to return to keep Walmart.ca inventory return separate from in store returns as was explained to me by a store manager last time I asked about this.

You might get lucky with staff who don’t know, but in general it’ll work easier if you pick it up from a store that has stock and PM at a store that shows a cheaper price


Amazing site btw!

Ty. But works only if the store can find that sku in their system.

Checked the stores in Calgary area, as well as Edmonton area, looks like only some locations have the $290 price but those ones are all sold out. The rest have the regular price and limited stock. No stores are displaying the 175 price, unfortunately!

The $175 seems to be single store.

For the $275 just buy at a store that has stock and go to the other to get the price adjustment if the store that has it won’t price match.

At the store just ask them to check pricing at other stores on their system they can do that for you - depending on the mood of the rep lol
