Ocassionally though, Home Depot gets it right. They currently have a sale going on in SE PA that gives up to a $300 instant rebate on qualifying tools.
My son and I have been eyeballing their 80 gallon, two stage air compressor for quite a while now. He likes to turn a wrench, and I like to make large piles of sawdust, so we thought this would be more than adequate for our needs. The problem was that I could never justify the $1079 price tag when my little 6 gallon twin stack did OK most of the time.
Well, it seems that air compressors were a qualifying item on this instant rebate program, and this one in particular qualified for the full $300 rebate. So for $779 this brand new, in the box, compressor now has a new home. Today's job is wiring it up to a dedicated 220v circuit!
How PO'ed would I have been if I would have bought it at the full price :-)
