Refurb for this price seems really high considering this has sold new in the last 6 months for noticably less.
Costco sold these for $159.99 new.
Amazon sold them for $199.99 new all through December 2018.
Was also new for $172 in November of 2018.
I predict you can get this brand new for a lot less if you wait.
Woot refurb pricing
Yeah, refurbished pricing has crept up to the point of not being worth it. (I was interested in this item until I saw the price.) We got a refurbed Dyson and soon after saw it new for + $30. I had two service calls during the scant 90-day warranty period, now we are on our own. The paltry savings came with a free case of buyer’s remorse. I’ll never get another refurb unless it’s WAY below normal price.
