Costco has a Danby for 299 with a pump and then 25% energy also applies in ON. I think that's a better deal.

I just figured from what I was looking at a that the frigidaire was the best reviewed unit so I'd put it out there for anyone else

$322 price is already including the 15%. Also the rebate is over already, no?
No the rebate isn't over. However they are out of stock so I paid today and will get a call to pick up when it is in Stock.

The Danby are loud. I have 2 of these Frigidaire (the smaller version) and they've lasted more than a year of daily use with no issues. My friend has one that is still going strong 3 years in.

It's the top rated dehumidifier for good reasons.

I got the 30 pint one for $109.99 before taxes and after the rebate. Was originally going to get this Frigidaire unit but thought $250+ was too much for me.

I took advantage of a Lowe’s no tax weekend + the 25% rebate a few weeks ago to grab this exact model for essentially the same price. No regrets. Significant difference in my basement and painless to operate and maintain.

I've had this (or a very similar model) for over 2 years now. Runs very well, very happy with it. Researched it extensively as well and it was the consensus best one out there. Definitely better than the Danby at a similar price point. I got it for 300 + tax at the time which was the best price I could find. This is a great deal if you need a dehumidifier to run regularly.

I’ve had a few Danbys and Garrisons with pumps and all the pumps eventually die under 2 years (or requires some sort of servicing on my part). The dehumidifiers themselves never lasted more than 2 years for me either, they usually develop a leak somewhere and the Freon gets low making them very inefficient (frosts up 1/2 of the coils).

I’ve had this Frigidaire for 2.5 years and chose this based on reviews and haven’t had an issue yet (fingers crossed).

I have 2 of the 70 pint frigidaires and 2 50 pint ones, all refurbished and can attest that they are awesome. IIRC I paid about $250 for a 70 and 50 together. This was at TechSmart Canada by Birchmount and Lawrence in Toronto. I think they have a 30 day warranty or 90 days.
I haven't had an issue with any of the 4 and its been about 2 years (two I have on all the time) BUT the place has lots of mixed reviews on google.

Was hoping the Danbu dehumidifier could be bought with their extended Costco sevice warranty. But contacted customer service and they've said it could not. Wouldve been my dealbreaker, but it looks like this Frigidaire might be it for me

Have had zero luck with de-humidifiers. First one was a cheap 50 pint one from Canadian Tire, lasted a year stopped working. Then had a 70 pint LG which again stopped working after a year. Bought an older version of this Frigidaire 70 pint from Lowes's bought the 3 year extended warranty based on previous experience. It promptly stopped working just after the 3 year mark. Every case the same thing, the units run but draw no moisture out of the air. Looked into fixing them but from what I could find it costs more to repair than to buy a new one. Maybe it because I don't run them non-stop, only use them as needed? Not sure. But it's been pretty frustrating trying to use these the last few years.

How does this compare with the lg 70 pint model the was on sale a few weeks ago at Costco? The lg model seems okay but the fan is always on.
