Price Jump

 Have you ever heard that old saying You snooze you lose?

That's what happened to me.

A couple weeks ago I saw a harbor freight predator 3500 inverter generator.  The price was $699.00. Didn't get it at the time because, money.

Well, guess what? I went yesterday to pick it up and the price had changed. Okay, no biggie. I can pay a little extra.

Uh uh, no way jose. The price is now $929 goddamn dollars! 

Holy crap! That's a 33% increase. I asked the guy about it. He said the $699 was sale price. I don't remember seeing any sale stickers.

I would like to get the unit, but I'm not paying any thousand bucks for it. 


  1. Don't know how far your China (back when, they sold even worse kwap tools from India and Pakistan!) tool outlet is? But in mine, they have a clearance table, in the back.
    One day, they had the small inverter generator, open box. For $200! After going to retrieve funds, and returning. It was already gone. Go everyday. Patience Grasshopper :-)

    1. Haven't seen a clearance table at this one.

  2. To quote one of my faves ... Douglas Adams [who died in a crappy gym, in Santa Bablyon (but at least he got there!)].

    Don't panic.

    Before the Junta destroyed the whole of the economy?

  3. And more specifically?
