Damn good deal but may be very YMMV
Picked up a couple from Walmart last time, paid $2 each, thought I got a great deal until I see this...

Some of those are liquid hot magma, $34 down to $1
The mechanical ones are probably not that great, but for $1 if you need one, why not?

And this will almost certainly be this location only (much like most RCSS deals). I wouldn't go out of your way to other locations to look.

I just bought a two pack mechanical type from costco for i think $10. :(

I also prefer these mechanical ones instead of the digital. I have a few Canadian Tire noma digital timers i bought years ago.. They are @$#%# PITA to program. (I always have to use the instruction manual or else i never know what the numbers/letters mean on the 3 digit display) If you unplug them for a few hours you have to reprogram it... frustrating.

There are probably better digital ones out there, but i do like these mechanical ones. "Set it and forget it" style. (pretty much set it one time and you are good forever)

The mechanical also lose their accuracy when the power goes out. Have to reset them to real time.
I have some digital battery backup models that save settings when power out and recharge the battery when plugged in. Also have multiple time profiles and one button DST. Best of all worlds (except remote wifi capability, that's beyond my budget on these kinds of things - I don't use often enough)

The TP-Link smart plugs were selling for $15 last week. I picked up 3. They offer easy, flexible timer programming via smartphone, and they recover and resume their schedule correctly after a power outage. Not to mention that they can be remote-controlled and linked to smart automation routines that do things like adjust for sunset/sunrise time and weather conditions.

I'm retiring my mechanical timers. They are too unreliable: 1 of the 3 doesn't seem to run any more, and a 2nd is erratic.

I think smart switches are forcing these timers into extinction

Nice deal TP-Link $15 i probably would of bought one myself.

My digital noma's also have the battery backup but after 3 years the battery i think only last around 30mins now. Its a good timer, just can be pretty frustrating to program :(

My local HD only price match the indoor timer at Whitby and offer the rest 50% off the discounted price.

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.plug ... 63358.html
successfully price matched at $0.48

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.dayl ... 79396.html
50% off $5 = $2.5

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.outd ... 63357.html
$5.96 - $4 instant energy saving rebate = $1.96 (I took the instant rebate instead of 50% off since it was cheaper).

Best Buy in BC. They went on sale for $25 at BB last week, then their price briefly dropped to $20 last Thurs/Fri when Amazon matched that price. In BC there's also a $5 rebate from BC Hydro applied automatically on checkout = net price $15.

It's still on sale for $25 nationwide, and $20 in BC.

I wonder how much longer timers will be around with the fast evolution of smart lights and plugs... If you're in the indoor/outdoor timer business, get out now or pivot to smart home!
