I just bought the DW735 at Lowe's for $383.20 as well this morning. However
they were out of stock in the store. I just paid for it anyway at the sale
price and will pick it up when it comes in next week.
Just bought mine from Tool Crib. Online price 479.99 and they beat the
Lowes 382.20+tax by 10% of the difference. Total price: $403 to my door.
Would have been $410 at Lowes after tax. Hey, why not? ;-)
They're backed up. So I have to wait 10 days. But I can wait.
Link To what??? Getting it from Tool Crib???
Go to Amazon and whereevr you find there price Gaurentee hit the link and it
will explain how and give an 800 Number they answerd the phone phone Tool
I told her i went online tobut the planer and said Lowes has a lower price,
she said yes they have a 20% off sale and explained how it worked and how
they did there caculating, They are smart they work with the out of store
price. In Other words I would pay Lowes 383.20 plus my applicable sales tax
so the deduct that off the 479 price take another 10% of that differance off
the 479 and that is how they get the price, I opted for the free shipping I
probably won't get it until Jan 4th but I Don't mind.
Thanks for the info.
I read another post about prepaying at Lowe's and then picking
the planer up when it arrived at their store, so I prepaid. It may
have been a little higher, but I'm glad I got it.
I did a search on Amazon, but did not find the 800 number.
I guess you have to join the Tool Crib club? Don't know.
I like it to straight forward, but sometimes it is worth it to
go the extra mile.

At one time it was spattered on almost every page, I had trouble finding it
I never have had an oportunity to use it and really felt that it would be a

I have now bought several tools from Amazon,

I just ordered the PC 361 Belt sander should be here Monday or tuesday and
now the dewalt planer,
saves me time going somewhere when i do not have the time.
I like shopping online at 3 am sometimes.
I generally have a pretty full day and these mediocre errand can take a big
bite of my time.
I was going to go to Lowes and pay for and get it when it came it but that
would have taken about 45 minute to an hour out of the 24 we get and I
already had a 28 hor day
So a few minutes on the phone and they can drop it on my doorstep for me.
Well Thanks for making me think Brian, Just nailed that little puppy for
with the price gaurantee.
My out the door price at lowes was 412.00
Amazon is well aware of Lowes 20% off sale so their phone lines at Tool Crib
is Busy but I got thru right away.
By the way the young lady told me that Amazon OWNS Tool Crib now.
Which Tool Crib?
I buy my tools at Acme Electric Tool Crib of the North. No affiliation with
Amazon. Amazon bought their mail order business from Acme Electric few years
back. The funny part is you can still can Acme Electric and order tools from
I just got my DW735 this morning. I let the Borgs Beat each other up and
endangered the bladder and kidneys of a Lowes Manager. I got a quote of
$383.20 from HD and drove over to Lowes. They only had the display left.
Dept Manager said I was SOL. I ran into the Store Manager going into the
Mens' Room as I was coming out. I started questioning him about the store
and corp policies as he did a "gotta go" dance. He called the Dept Manager
and told her to beat HD price by 10% and give another 10% for the open box.

Got lucky today. I bought a DW 735 last month at Lowes and it sat in the
garage for the last month. Took it out of the box today and used it for 30
min. Then the belt for the rollers broke! SO I took it back to Lowe's. I
did not know about the 20% off sale so I got money back from my original
purchase and a new 735 in the process.
Planed about 30 bd ft of 4/4 soft maple and another 15 bd ft of walnut
tonight as a test. On finish speed the smoothness is amazing.....I have a
Performax drum sander and I won't have to use it.....
I know I'm late to the party, but I wonder if their policy changed
because of me. Two or three years ago, while shopping for my new
Ridgid planer, my hand slid under the table and caught the blades on
the end of my fingertips. Managed to avoid stitches, but left a
pretty cool trail of blood from the tool aisles to the managers desk.
They seemed a little concerned about my medical bills (I let it heal
on its own), but I assured them I was not going to sue them when I was
