I was a bit hesitant to spend the money to get into Ego products, but I found a loophole to get in cheap. I stopped by the local Home Depot Saturday and saw they were offering a free battery in store for every Ego product. They did not carry the self-propelled so I had to pass 3 other Home Depots across town to the one who carried the product. I opened a Home Depot charge and got $25 off the purchase and 6 months to pay. Total after discount plus tax was $608. When I got my receipt I noticed it said the battery had a $101 return value. I handed it back to the cashier and asked to return it. I got $107 back (tax). Sweet I was out the door with the SP mower for $501, including tax!
I went back to Home Depot this morning bought a string trimmer for $199, with a free battery. Again I handed the battery right back for $78 back!! Then I did the exact same thing with the blower. So I now have the $599 mower, the $199 trimmer and $199 blower, with a 7.5aH battery and 2 2.5aH batteries, all for around $757 with tax included!! I also have a 3 chargers. So I'll keep the quick charger and sell the other 2 on Ebay. I should have no problem netting $60 for both chargers, bringing my total down to $700!!
I hope I like this stuff!
