I saw this last night at WalMart in Oxford, MA. WalMart prices usually differ from store to store, so YMMV. They had the GE 10,000 BTU w/ remote for $145, 8,000 BTU w/ remote $100, and various brands of 5,000 BTU for $52.

thats pretty cheap!

good deal! I paid 80 for my 5200 back in may!

Home Depot have AC's cheaper then that, My local ones had 30% off all AC and I got 10% lowes coupon which gave me 40%, I paid approx 119 for 10000 BTU Maytag, which comes with 5 year warranty.

i think 30% off plus extra 10% off are not equal 40%. i believe total is 33% off.
am i right?

Sorry for the math, but for the AC priced at 133 or so i paid something about 120, thats all i wanted to say, its more cheaper in home depot.

where on earth did you get 30% off?

was this during some special promotion? i've been looking the past month and maytag ac's are normal price atm at home depot: 5200btu is $120, 8000btu is $148

[Q]i think 30% off plus extra 10% off are not equal 40%. i believe total is 33% off.30% + 10% off is a total of 37% off.

I live in North east PA, here we have 5000 btu for 55, 6000 for 83 and 10000 for 133 approx thats what i could remember on top of head. Both Maytag and Fedders are on sale here, but preffered Maytag for its warranty (Manufacturer are same).

30% off $1 = $.70 (Saved $.30)

10% of $.70 is $.07 (Saved another $.07)

(Total discount of $.37) >>>>>>>> 37% discount

Was the price after 30%+10% off or before?

or, in general (if people think price makes a difference, or that order of discount matters):

x * .7 (i.e. 30% off) * .9 (i.e. another 10% off) = .63x (i.e. 63% of the original cost; 37% off)

The price i mentionedis just 30% and the remaining 10% if you have a coupon, I had one i got it, but the prices i wrote are without 10% coupon for fedders and maytag brand AC's which may be +- $2 to $3.

I have a dumb question... Do these work with the regular household outlets or do I need a 220V connection?

How do you guys think about Maytag?

I had a GE 5000BTU for the last 4 years and it runs very quiet. I just got Maytag 5200BTU w/ remote control for $80 or $90 (not sure) but it's very noisy. My in-law had Maytag since last year and it's noisy also. I think the noise is because Maytag uses mostly plastic compare to GE.

I think the ones above 10000 BTU's I saw neeeded 220v upto 10000 you should be fine with household outlets.

I think you can actually get upto 12000btu without switching to 220v, but don't quote me on that.

I also agree that the GE is much quieter than previous A/Cs that I have had, and they also have the 5yr warranty like the maytag.

Do not buy maytag. My parents had a GE washing machine for 20 years. They bought a $500 maytag, it was dead 3 years later. What did the repair man have to say "They don't build them like they use to, we don't expect these machines to last more than 5 years anymore". From their own repair man. It was $250 to fix, half the cost of a new one. My dad asked him what kind of washer he had, it wasn't maytag. Maytag does not equal reliability anymore. Either buy the cheapest or go with consumer reports picks. I don't know about AC, but for washers they recommend Whirlpool.

In a word, don't buy Maytag.

Homedepot in MA has the 30% off all ACs. To make the deal even hotter, if you have Nstar as a provider. You get another 25 dollar rebate with any energy star compliant ACs. I got one of the 5200BTU Maytag for 83.xx-25.00=58.xx. Not bad for an AC with digital temperature control and a wireless remote.

$25 dollar rebate search engine

check to see if you qualify for the $25 rebate.

keep cool people!

I don't, cuz I don't have an electric bill!

OP was this a WalMart superstore? Cuz I have 4 w/in half hour drive, none are superstores, and none have >6,000 BTU units. Sales dude said you can either get larger units online or at superstores.

WalMart.com don't have these GE units listed either.... hmmm.

itedinfw,

You don't need a electric bill yourself. There are plenty of way to get a copy of a bill. Here are some ideas, friends and family, and the more extreme will be dumpsters.


This was in a regular WalMart. Actually I have a super WalMart nearby, and they didn't have the same prices. WalMart prices are very YMMV, but sometimes they will pricematch their stores.

Where did you get the Lowes 10% coupon? They take Lowes and other coupon?
