BUFFALO, N.Y. -- A quick look out your window may be all the convincing you need today.
If you don't own a snow blower or need something better equipped than your basic shovel, today's Ways 2 Save is dedicated to you.
All of the deals below are for homeowners or those who don't have massive lots. In my experience, the folks with massive lots already have the equipment they need.
The worst time to buy a snow blower was actually December, with prices at their highest, but today's snow times out perfectly with the New Year's price drop momentum.
Today I have a recommendation for three times of shoppers, as well as a guide to assist.
My friends over at Cheapism have a start-to-finish breakdown of awards for the best cheap snow blowers (electric and gas), in addition to snow throwers. If you have no idea what you're looking for, this is a great place to start. CLICK HERE
1) Toro 7.5 Amp Power Shovel
Today: $99, free shipping
Who's it for? When $99 if a shovel just won't cut it! For the families that just want a "savings" grace in the shoveling department, I love this Toro 7.5-amp electric snow thrower. It has 367 excellent reviews. Expected to sellout quickly and price will change when Amazon switches to a third-party reseller.
2) Greenworks 9 Amp Electric Snow Thrower
Today: $119.99, free shipping
Who's it for? Great if you have a small walkway or very narrow driveway. This is a well-rated snow clearing machine that does its job if you're not buried under 3 feet of snow.
3) Craftsman 22" Gas-Powered Dual-Stage Snow Thrower
Choose free in-store pickup to have it in your hands today and avoid delivery fees. Sears, like Amazon, will likely crank up the prices by the end of the day.
Who's it for? This is a heavier duty snow thrower with solid fuel economy, ready for more demanding jobs. It has a 2-year warranty backed by Sears Service. It has a 22-inch clearing path.
As always, I'll be sending out more deals via Twitter after the show. Happy New Year! CLICK HERE
