Hey fellas,

Wanted to let you know that while I’ve been looking at various TS at Lowe’s in my area, I noticed that some of the stores are offering the DW735 the usual $649, but there are some that are offering it $499! I saw this and couldn’t believe it. I had won a 20% off coupon on eBay for HD (Lowe’s takes HD coupons) as well as a Lowe’s 10% coupon (in case the HD coupon didn’t work, it was only 99 cents). Anyway…. I got to the store; saw it was still selling for $499, but found out the 20% coupon was indeed a scam. The manager came up, I told him what happened, and he said he would go ahead and give me 10% since I had gotten scammed AND he let me still use the other 10% coupon! I ended up getting my 735 for $399!

Anyway, if you’re in the market for a planer and you have time to go search your different Lowe’s stores, you might find yourself a bargain! Don’t forget to go on eBay and get the Lowe’s coupon (it’s the one you get when you move into a new house so it’s legit) and you could get this thing for $449!

Good deal!

I just walked in the door from Lowe’s, and I stopped to look at that planer. It’s selling for $649 here.

If you ever go to another Lowe’s, even if it’s right down the street, make sure you stop by it and check! Out of the 8 Lowe’s that are within about 10-20 miles of one another, 2 of them had it at $499. The store I bought it at is not that far from another Lowe’s that has it for $649. Good luck!

Caveat emptor…buyer beware…certainly good advice…and I love my 735…wouldn’t give it up…works like a champ…a great buy no matter the price…but one would like to get it for less no matter what…
