Was down to 499 briefly last month at BB, but if you really want them then the extra $100 is worth it imo since it's either this or like $850+ on Kijiji

So now best buy has jumped on the price gouging bandwagon. Manufacturer website is 459.

Way to stick it to the customer.

We're all in this together.....except you.

Sadly MSRP means nothing when these sell easily on Kijiji for 750$

Honestly. Why is it so expensive to get heavy things?
They don’t even need to be fancy, just a chunk of iron from the ground and a way to hold it that doesn’t actively injure you.

For accurate measurement. It's useful to change weights for different exercises.

Not happy about the price but ordered a set anyways. Will see if they come up anywhere else in the next month for cheaper and return them if necessary.

Best buy has some pretty crappy return policy for certain items. Not sure if I should grab it now, or just wait for phase 3.

Another alternative is to hunt the Powerblocks Sport for $100 each at Canadian Tire. It will cover up to 25lbs. Then buy whatever hex dumbbells you need on Amazon.

So best buy has joined the company of RFD Kijiji resellers. Great people to be lumped in with.

I ordered this set with Amazon, on Jun 16, it got to my home today, July 15. Took a whole month with the shipper Purolator. Amazon shipped it out soon after I made my order, and their guaranteed delivery date is June 24, so it's not a stock problem.
Crazy delay in shipping nowadays.

Damn, I didn't realize the prices had jumped so much recently.

Got mine from Best Buy back in January for $350. They've been great.

At first I thought this was a big YIKES in terms of pricing, since I got mine for $169.46/ea at SportChek a couple weeks before the pandemic struck here. But then I realized that was after the 25% F&F discount, so they were $226 each regular price, which would make the pair $452.

So for $600 regular price for the pair right now during pandemic times....that's actually not TOO bad.

If you guys have an immediate need, I'd say it actually wouldn't be terrible to go for it.

I only need one. If someone in the GTA wants to split it let me know.

Thanks!

I had same thing and Amazon refunded me 1.5 weeks after the expected delivery date thinking it was lost. They told me I can keep it if it ever gets here, which it did.
