When should Orbitz boxes go on sale?

Recommended Posts

Guest guest

I learned through the forum that the Orbitz boxes were cleared out some time during the fall last year. If I recall correctly, it was Home Depot, which stocks them seasonally.

Does anyone know the timeframe when they were cleared out last year, and was it Home Depot, Lowes?

I made a peripheral effort at searching the forums, but with no luck.

Thanks!

Orbitz boxes? You sure you're not confusing them with rite time? Anyway... my local Home depot and Lowes will not be reducing prices on any irrigation supplies...

It also looks like Menards here will not be dropping prices.... but I did take advantage of the 17% "bag sale" they had a couple weeks back and got what I needed for this season.

What are Orbitz boxes? Those weather proof extension boxes?

Ah, you are right, Jim, it was the Rite Time boxes that were on fire sale last year.

I just found the Orbit box on sale a HD for $18.99. They only had one.

My HD wants $30 each for their Orbit boxes and each store has at least five. Wonder if they would do a price match? Want to send me a copy of your sales slip?

Well went to HD with your sales slip and walked out with four of their boxes for $18.99!!! They did a price match so might want to put the word out! I still have to get six more so going to another one tomorrow (they have 5).

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!:waycool:

Hey k9smith, Robin or anyone do you have a scan of the full copy of your receipt. The local home depot wont accept it because the sku number is not complete and the price. What a bummer the sku is only missing the first digit and the rest of the sku match and the price they don't believe it list $18.?? I told them $18.99 but they still gave me a hard time. I could of told them 18.01 Any help would be appreciated.:)

1st try (Cary, NC) was a no go... "we don't match other Home Depot pricing". Still got four more within local driving distance (8 boxes at $11.00 savings each is worth a few bucks in gas).

k9smith, I also would like to request a rescan to see if you can capture all the text. Your help is greatly appreciated.

I went to another HD today and the head cashier was not to happy because all the numbers were not on the copy. I told her that the other HD in the county had no problem with it. Bought the last three they had at $18.99! So I would be pretty strong on the issue once you have a clear copy. Does not hurt anything to try.


Anyway, HD does do price matching as the store last night was very strong on that issue.

Friend of mine who owns an irrigation company had some old timer boxes and I think I am good now. Only needed 15 total so will check them out tonight.

Two tries. First Home Depot told me they don't match out of state Home Depot prices (which seems like it could be to my advantage, if I bought something cheaper at an out of state Home Depot for $10 then returned it at my Home Depot for $20, but I digress). They turned me down at the customer service counter, which made me think I was making it too much of a production and therefore giving them an opportunity to deny me.

So at the 2nd Home Depot location, I went to a checkout line instead. I also never asked if they price match. Just plunked down a stack of 3 time boxes with the $18.99 receipt on top, stated that a friend bought these at another location earlier this week, and that I would like the same price. This girn looked at the reciept, called over another cashier, asked what the proper register keys were to make the change, and rang me up. Out the door I went with $29.99 Orbit boxes that I paid $18.99 for.

Thanks all!

K9smith thank you very much it seems that the Home Depot police here is CA are very active and don't give any breaks. I went to three HD and no go, I even did the same thing DavBro did and the head cashier called the management for an OK and denied me. So I thought about it and went to Lowe's for a price match brought 8 boxes to the service counter and showed them the HD receipt. The Manager looked at the sku match and said "WOW that's a great deal $18.19" our price is $28.99, I guess I’ll match it since your buying that many. Told him I would of bought more but you don't have any more left :], he told me when the next shipment date was and if I needed more let him know. He just said make sure you keep shopping here and not the other place. Anyway I got what I needed for now :waycool:. If I persisted with HD, I know I would have been able to get it done, but hey just like electricity,

I take the path of least resistance
:laughing:. The stores must be wondering why does anyone need that many timer boxes.

Ok I have to confess. I cut off the store location and just told each cashier that a friend bought these at another store for this price and they had no more in stock. So there you have it I am a baaaaaaaaaaad boy.
