[Walmart] FIRMAN Generator Model # W01781 $500.00 ($450.00 after price match/guarantee)

HomeDepot.ca has FIRMAN 2100/1700 Inverter Generator Model # W01781 posted on their website as an "Online Exclusive" for $699.99. Walmart.ca has same model generator posted on their website for $500.00. After Home Depot matched Walmart's price and applied their Price Guarantee, the generator was shipped to my house at no cost for $450.00. Read "Price Match when ordering online" instructions on Home Depot's website under the Customer Services tab before placing the order.

It seems to be a well-reviewed unit and I have been looking for one of these for a while. I just haven't bought one because even though they claim to be ultra quiet they are noisy, and people hate campers who have generators. If I could make some sort of a sound-proof insulated box with ventilation to place the generator where nobody can hear it.

Costco also has the larger H03651 dual fuel unit for only $464.99. An issue with that one is its weight of 135Lbs.

I think your price won't work with HD since it is a online only but might work with Lowes and it is 10% the difference = $20 Hd or $30 Lowes

lowes has it for $799

and HD $699

fyi, the H03651 is an open frame generator (much louder) and is not an inverter generator (can be unforgiving to electronic devices)

Though I believe Lowes does indeed have the same generator, the model number is different (Model # W01782 and not Model # W01781). The only difference I can see between the two is that the Lowes version includes a vinyl cover. I have my doubts they will price match with different model numbers.

Re Price match guarantee ... Home Depot's guarantee is to price match the item then reduce the price by "10% of the competitors price" (in this case $500.00 for a $50.00 reduction) = $450.00

Amazon also has it at $500. Not sure if HD has ever price matched Amazon.

Home Depot only price matches Online Only Stores (Amazon) ... they do not take the 10% off.

Price Match and Beat by 10% for Retail Stores:
If you find a current lower price on an identical, in-stock item from a local retailer’s store or website, we will match the price and beat it by 10%. Prices for online items will be matched to localized online prices if available.

Price Match for Online-Only Stores:
If you find a current lower price on an identical, in-stock item from a Canadian online-only retailer’s website, we will price match only. Items from online-only retailers are not eligible for the 10% discount. Prices will be matched to localized online prices if available.

decent deal, but honestly i don't think i'd buy another gen that wasn't at least 30amp, especially for an RV, the 3300 watt firman is only $750 at costco.ca, so its only like 1.5x the price for twice the power and IMO significantly more functional, but obviously there are some trade offs like size and weight.

It is not easy to sound-proof these because they also overheat without open air.

I have the 3300w Firman inverter from Costco from about a year ago. I do remember I got it on sale, and I think is was $120 off. And it has been on sale once since that time. This is a great little unit. Quiet and easy start. We used it camping once but mostly to build a cottage and it handled all of our tools fine - just not at the same time. There was one heavy duty compressor that would trip the 15a circuit during startup. So I got a 30a to 15a adapter and plugged the compressor into that, fixed. Just needed to get over the startup draw.

Just checked - $599 last May 21. There was also a $20 MasterPass promo going on at the same time. So you might want to wait a month, Costco sales are fairly predictable.
