We are fed up with the weekly mowing of almost 3/4 acre (with a pushmower, no less!). It is good excercise, and lawn tractors are not cheap (I always advocated that I rather spend that kind of money on travel than stuff). That said, 3 hours a week mowing is a lot of time wasted and time to think of alternatives. So, instead of going the riding mower route or hiring a lawn service ($60/week for my yard), I am strongly considering a robot mower. These are quite popular in Europe. I have come to love our robot vacuums and think a robot mower is a logical next step. The models I'm considering are: Husqvarna Automower 430x Code: http://www.husqvarna.com/us/products/robotic-lawn-mowers/automower-430x/967622505/ MSRP $2,600. Usually sold on ebay for about $100 less than MSRP, along with other no-name internet sellers. Or Robomow RS 630: Code: https://usa.robomow.com/shop/uncategorized/rs-630-5/ MSRP $2,500; same price on ebay and same lesser known (to me, at least) equipment sales sites. Both also on amazon on 3rd party sellers and usually more expensive. Other than ebay, I don't see options for cashback (seems ebay lately is 1% or 2% at best?) or other ways to get a deal. On amazon, the price is also only through 3rd party sellers and quite stable. I see on camelcamelcamel some occasional, significant dips in prices (50% or so), but I do wonder if those are pricing mistakes, as they seem to only last a day. I have set up alerts on camelcamelcamel. So, what would be the Saverocity suggested route to shave of a few or several $100 or earn as many points as possible on this? I would like to avoid the 5x ebay GC at Staples, etc route, as I would like to get the extended warranty by paying with a CC. Thanks for any insights! Edit to correct prices.
