Champion 75531i 3100W Portable Inverter Generator running $641 right now

So, this is becoming an annual event.

About 3 years ago I bought a 3100W inverter generator made by Champion. It easily runs my trailer and, most importantly gives me enough power to start and run my AC in the trailer. Since then, I post whenever the price drops on this ...it seems to be an annual event right around mid April. Anyways, great generator, runs quiet (listed at 58db) less than 100 lbs and has given me no problems in 3 years.

I didn't have any concerns regarding repair/parts since the regional repair center just happens to be 15 minutes from my house. Nevertheless, it has great reviews and the company is good to deal with.

Is this a Honda? no, it is little louder. The 3000 watt Honda inverter is listed at 58db...both are within the guidelines for federal parks. The Honda is currently around 2 grand, so this seems to be a good cheap alternative.

Currently price war going on between Amazon and Walmart

Walmart:

Here's the link on Amazon that is running it at $641 to price match Wally World.

I see the Walmart one is now down to $611. Amazon is at $596, or $625 if you want the wireless remote start. I went with the remote start.

Thanks for the price update. Good buy IMHO.

Interested.

You peaked my interest on this generator. Not seeing that pricing at this time, is there a certain time you have seen them go on sale? Have done some research on them & have good reviews.

So over the past couple years it dips in price in late March-Early April but in doing some more research it apparently drops a few times a year.

When one retailer online does a price drop, the others usually follow. I bought mine on Overstock.com.

I am a big fan of following pricing using the site camel.camel.camel.com

Here's a link

I setup a price watch and as you can see in the chart, the price drops a few times a year. You can have the site email you when it drops to the price.
