Does the Greenworks 40V 4 Ah Lithium Ion Battery ever go on sale?

Subject title says it all.

Seems the price at Amazonis pretty steady with only very small fuctuations.

I wonder if anyone has seen this battery, the 4 Ah one, on sale at a substantial discount.
The one that came with my lawnmower is several years old and I'm planning ahead.

Highly unlikely. Many manufacturers take the Gilette safety razor approach: sell the tool (razor) for cheap/break even, charge out the ass for the accessories (blades), profit!

you can always take a chance and buy a 3rd Party battery.

I've had luck buying them for my Ryobi tools, including a lawnmower!
Be aware they are rarely the size they advertise.

My 3rd party 40v Ryobi battery was advertised as 6AH, but its like half the size my official one! It will works well, but doesn't last as long as a real 6 AH.

Depending on cost, it might be worthwhile to look into it.

Thanks everyone for the replies.
@Calmuser - I didn't know there were any 3rd party batteries that fit a Greenworks lawnmower.
Can you post a link?

Amazon used to have some, but not now it seems.

But Aliexpress has a bunch

No idea how well that one works, it's the same brand I used for my Ryobi.
