I am guessing that this might be deleted, but it is a little sad that it’s the same price (but with free shipping) directly from the manufacturer.

You can buy this directly from Blueair for exactly the same price. https://www.blueair.com/us/refurbished-air-purifiers/classic-550e


#5

It is the same price, however my state is charging $35.77 sales tax. So Woot is a better deal in that aspect.


#6

Many states already factor in internet shopping into sales tax now.


#7

how frequently would the “easily replaced” filters need to be replaced?
and what do the replacements cost?


#8

ahhh … found it
every 6 months
and between $80 and $150 every 6 months, depending on the level of filtration you desire … if I read that right
https://www.blueair.com/us/air-purifier-filters

I’m a little confused… they show 3 filters, and talk about the unit coming with 3 filters…
but I’m not sure if the prices above are a 3-pack, good for 3 filter changes? or if the unit stacks 3 filters???
so… not sure if that is a price per 18 months… or per 6 months?

I just bought this one on 9/26. It seems to do the same thing, but for much less.

Lol! What a Woot fail! I can get this cheaper direct from Blueair considering I won’t have to pay tax or shipping from them, and I will from Woot.

I’ve had this in my house for years. We keep it in the kids’ room during allergy season, helping them get a decent night’s rest so they can concentrate during the day.

During the day, we run it on high, while nobody’s home, basically making a fairly pollen-free area in their room. We turn it down to low at night. Compared to the nights when we don’t run it…night and day

It’s a darn good filter, btw. We’ve two spare filters waiting in the wings, but frankly, the original filter has been effective for us way past it’s recommended replacement cycle. maybe next year we’ll swap one of those replacements in.

On the Blueair site, they’re offering refurbished options for $350…free shipping & no tax. It looks like Woot!'s offering it for $330…$5 shipping. Woot!'s still the better deal, and put the deal in front of your face, whereas you’d never have seen it if you weren’t already on the blueair site. Normally this is $460 bucks. I would have liked to have had the woot deal when I bought it.

Hey all! The price has been dropped. If you already purchased, you’ll see a refund for the difference, soon!


#13

For NYS delivery Woot’s price is $364.30…includes tax and shipping. Looks like ordering direct from manufacturer is cheaper


#14

I have no tax from the manufacture (tax doesn’t go away until you enter your shipping address, in a state they don’t charge in) but I do here.

So in reality it is still $25.10 more here after tax and shipping than direct from the manufacture for me.

I remember when the deals here blew away any price you could ever find anywhere else… you know, back when they sold one item per day. Ahhh… member-berries! :slight_smile:


#15

Love my Blueair Air Purifier! I got one as a Christmas gift for my father last year and he loves it, too!

This is the best deal I have ever seen, $329 + $5 shipping?!? Done! :slight_smile:

I have had one of these for years and years. Used to buy the filters at Costco, but found Bed Bath & Beyond with the online 20% coupon is the best price (free shipping since the price is below their $30 min). And yes…they come in a 3 pack and the price you’ll see is a 3 pack (3 pack is one use for 6 months–costco sells a year worth (2 three packs)).

Oh, and by the way, the filters are pretty much the easiest things to swap out. Takes 3 seconds (you lift the top cover off and one filter is laying right there horizontally, the other two are vertical and you just lift them out as well and slide in all three new ones). VERY simple!

This machine has been a lifesaver for my husband. His seasonal allergies are horrible (we live in CA) and I keep this in our bedroom 24/7. I honestly think we’ve had our machine 8 years (might not be this exact model, but it’s a 500 series model and I think they’re all pretty much the same). Great product! It’s quiet too!
