They were $69.99 yesterday . Costco been doing these “ weekend “ sales lately that usually start friday and end on Sunday .

At $49 it’s a no brainer and pretty practical appliance.

Thanks, I'd better go back and get the price adjustment before it is sold out.

From first hand experience, the item has to physically be in stock in the store in order to qualify for a price adjustment

Saw 20+ in Merivale,
They didn't sell like cupcakes like the other time. I feel like they hang around for awhile at regular price which cools down even after sale now.

but do you need to present your receipt? Or is membership card enough for them to search?

Works great dude. It has changed our lives. No more deep fried food. Go buy it, you won't regret it.

I have had them look up my purchase when doing a return.
Receipts are also now available in the Costco app. You may have to do a verification process to get full access to your account.

You don't need the receipt, they can look it up the system, that said, I always present mine to speed things up.

Argh, I wish I had known. A few weeks ago I returned a shirt and they said it's $5 and I took it since there was a long line behind me but my wife said she paid $10 online.

I don't know if they could look up an online purchase without the order number, I always show them a printout of my online order.

I’ve been very impressed with it, and at this price it is fantastic!

It's interesting about the Watts. Bigger sized units don't give you proportionally more cooked food for the same amount of time. They have the same amount of heat output typically but just spread the heat out to a larger surface area. You will have more surface area, but the benefit there is not having to shake/stir as often.

Gourmia 7Qt - 1500 Watts
Ninja 4Qt - 1550 Watts

But perhaps a larger convection fan size would result in more cooked food in the larger units? Perhaps that might help a little.

For all these air fryers, the weakest link is the non-stick coating. One can buy original and 3rd party replacements. The quality and durability of that non-stick coating determines the expiration date of these units. Almost all the reviews of these products are typically from exited new owners, rather than owners who have used them for 6-12 months.

But there's the other issue - cleaning. It's very difficult to clean the grease build-up from the areas around the fan and heating elements. After 1-2 years, many will be happy to purchase a replacement and start again with a new non-stick and a clean unit.

Online price includes shipping, it will always be more than the in warehouse price. I don't think you can do a price adjustment for an item bought online vs the in warehouse price, or at least they shouldn't. Technically you could return the online order and buy it again, but..

I wish Costco would just charge shipping prices as a separate line item like everywhere else.
Nobody cares which exploitative corporations you give your money to every month. Capitalism is a plague on this planet. Get that crap out of your signature.

It's funny how they did my price adjustment today. I paid $64.99 and it's now $49.99 in store. But instead of refunding me $15+tax, they gave me back $20+tax because the item is $20 off now (from 69.99 to 49.99). Not complaining.

Wrap the inside basket with aluminum! With aluminum foil liner, I only had to wash my air-fryer once every couple of months. The only part I do wash regularly is the stainless steel rack. I can also reuse the aluminium foil unless i'm cooking something greasy or wet. It's been a year and my air fryer is still good as new.

Can you buy online and then get price adjustments for the in store price?

Is there a point in buying an air fryer if I already own a full size convection oven?

Probably some power savings? Join the hype train?

Not really.

Of course not. Don't be ridiculous.
