I was looking at these and saw they were $500 new. I suppose this refurb one is a good price, but who tf pays this much for a hairdryer with a twoyear warranty?

I've said it before on these Dyson "refurb" deals but I'll say it again:

Just buy it from Shopper's Drug Mart. They have 20x points events all the time.

Buy it at regular price then, with 20x points, you're getting 30 cents per dollar you spend back. Right now if I add the $499.99 regular price Hair Dryer to my cart it says I get 7485 in regular points or 149700 with the 20x event. This is worth $149.70 back. If you then spend those during the Spend your points events which are almost once every 2 months you can make those points worth 1.5x their value. So your $149.70 is worth $224.55 in merchandise.

Spend $500, get $224.55 back in Shopper's money. For a NEW, not refurbished, Dyson Hair Dryer. Plus you still can get 1% with Rakuten.

Refurb: $319.99 ($361.59 with tax)
New: $499.99 ($564.99 with tax) - $224.55 = $340.44

I don't have one... but my hair dresser has one... usually it takes about 30 minutes to dry my hair with a hair dryer.... this thing took 10 minutes, if that. If I ever decide to buy myself a hair dryer, the extra money is totally worth the time I would save by using it.

You've failed to mention Shoppers Drug Mart's massive mark ups on most of their items. I try to avoid buying there as much as possible. Unless the item you're looking for is on sale, I wouldn't recommend it.

For example, Dr. Scholl's men's work insoles is sold at SDM for $23 at regular price. I can get these exact same ones from Wal-Mart for $18 at regular price. This is a 22% markup. With the 20x points event, $149.70 is 30% of the $500 item. If you spend the points back on these kind of mark ups, you're not saving much. It's only worthwhile if it's on sale, whenever that will be. The points system is constantly recycled to cover the mark ups.

With the $149.70 that you've saved and if I were to buy these insoles, I can buy 6 of them from SDM as opposed to Wal-Mart where I can get 8 with no conditions. The points limits your selection and when you (want to) spend them as opposed to direct savings. This is just my opinion but I prefer not to be locked into this kind of marketing tactic.

That is impressive! IIRC, theyhave a line for professionals, something to do with the filter getting clogged with product (spray etc) in a professional setting.

Out of the topic, last year there was a free attachment giveaway from Dyson. Has anyone received it yet? It was also a post on RFD. Thanks

Wal-Mart doesn't have points though, so you would just be paying $149.70 in cash vs. PC points, in which case 1 pack of insoles at Wal-Mart is more expensive than the 6 packs you'd get from Shoppers.

Got a refurb from eBay over one year back.
Really pleased with the quality and condition.

One major complaint though, the power brick and heavy-duty wire are always dangling and extremely heavy. It's very poor design IMO and I'm surprised Dyson would not catch this in user testing.
To make things worse the cable is excessively long and needs to be coiled up with a zip tie.
I ended up installing a 3M-copycat hook on the wall to hold it up, and that hook has since fallen from the weight.

It is annoying enough that I wouldn't buy it again for that one reason.

PC points events have to come from somewhere, which is SDM's mark ups. Wal-Mart is an every day low price, I don't have to wait until there's a points event to make my purchase nor do I have to time my purchases to gain more points. I'm not waiting 2 months to get new insoles over points lol. Stock comes into play too, SDM does not carry much stock of their products and stocktrack doesn't work with SDM.

I just noticed on your sig that the fuchsia/nickel one is on sale for the same price but not the eBay store. I'll update the thread to include this one. Thanks for mentioning it.

My wife and I have one. It really is a superior hair dryer and works way faster than other ones. Now that I'm getting pandemic length hair from no haircuts, I truly appreciate it more than ever.

Just posting a similar deal from another vendor. It's not a part of my sig and I am in no way endorsing BestBuy or Dyson and I don't take any commission. Astonished Face

Both sides have valid points, however if you buy some items that are relatively flat in price, like baby formula or some grocery items you aren't worst off as Walmart sells it pretty much at the same price. Points can also be used at other pc chains, albeit at no bonus rate.

Even if you forgo the extra redemption days, it's still only $50 more expensive for new vs refurb. For an item of this cost, that's relatively negligible but YMMV on that.

You can redeem point for grocery at any Loblaw stores, so it is basically cash.
