[Best Buy] Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable 5-53lb Pair of Dumbbells $499.99

In case anyone is still looking. Best Buy re-stocked at $499.99 for a pair with free shipping.

Dumbbells doesn't seem to be excluded from CB sites:
Rakuten: 1%
GCR: 1.3%

$499 is the new regular retail price (used to be $459/pair) as sold on Bowflex.ca (available but looks like it'll take 10 weeks to ship)

17 pairs left as of this posting. (based on Stocktrack)

This likely won't last long as the Weider Dumbbell has recently sold out at CT in the GTA area even at the new higher price of $199 per dumbbell (used to be $179).

Bowflex has a 2 year warranty. Also, I would imagine it would be easier to re-sell down the road being a brand name?

If you haven't bought by now, just wait a little longer and pick up in the clearance sales as things open up eventually. Costco also sold these for cheaper and provided the stand too. It's still going to be a while for us, but with the US restarting, a lot of their merchandise could easily be shipped to us, dollar is higher too.

For potential buyers. Each dumbbell measures 16 ½ inches

Normal dumbbells are around 10-12 inches

I can count on my one hand how many times I've had to use a warranty for anything. The savings out weight the risks in my opinion. I've seen the fakes and they are solid. To each their own

I've already used the warranty with Bowflex, with proof of purchase and the issue, they ship you the replacements, no questions asked...mine was a small defect, pretty much still able to use, and they still sent a new one to me, so now I have 3 dumbbells lol

You've "seen" the fakes but haven't even tried them? You don't happen to be the Peter mentioned here?

...just saying!

And obviously I don't have any financial interests in Bowflex or Best Buy (if I had, I wouldn't be on this forum).

@NakedAngel's post seem reasonable. He cautions using Bowflex but even more so with fakes/knockoffs (especially without the backing of a well known, large publicly traded company)

Powerblock Sport 2.4 (non-extendable) 3-24 lbs still $99 (each, not a set) at Canadian Tire... 12 in stock @ Maisonneuve and 40 @ Langelier

Def not going to be enough if you want to look like Hulk Hogan but for a smaller-built person or casual user they are great value, I have found.

Having used these and powerblocks, I much much prefer the Bowflex. It is closer to an actual dumbbell in shape and feel.

Dont know if I'm allowed to post but im selling brand new 1090s still in box for $1000. I bought them but ended up getting 552s right after so dont need these. I'll just return after lockdown is over if nobody is interested but they are hard to find.

I have NO experience with these, but they seem like same build/concept and free next-day delivery if you're in a certain area is a nice plus.
I've posted about this elsewhere, but I have the Bowflex 552s and the Novalook 90lbs adjustable dumbbells. I use both all the time and I really can't come up with a reason to spend more on the Bowflex version. The Novalooks are plainer looking, but I actually prefer the metal grip of the Novalook to the Bowflex rubber grip (that might be a weight thing, I haven't seen Bowflex 1090s in person).

Most of us could train our whole life and have a personal chef and we still wouldn't come close to looking like that.
For females 24 lbs might be sufficient, however if you're going to spend the cash to pay for adjustable dumbbells you might as well go for models that have higher weight capacity. If you're going for that low weight capacity and are forced to a max weight, save the money and just get a few stand-alone dummbells IMO.

I guess you could always re-sell the 24 power power block, but you could do the same thing with the stand-alones and it'll be less bulky than the power blocks
