I'm going to wait at least until shipment notification for a better price.

I can help you get $20 off the Lowes price if you are interested.. Just do this:

Go to Lowes.com
http://www.lowes.com/cd_offers+and+services_425333486_

Fill out the moving form (and let them send you promo fliers) and they will give you a 10% off discount code

Go to Raise.com
https://www.raise.com/buy-lowe-s-in-sto ... gift-cards

Purchase the $98.60 Gift Card Voucher at a 7.2% discount.. You pay $91.54 for the $98.60 gift card voucher (print it and take it to the store).

So if the router is $129.99 and you use the 10% promo code, you get it for 116.99 (save $12.99) and then pay for it with your $98.60 voucher (and the difference in cash) and you save another 7.06. So, when all is said and done, you save $20.05

Raise.com has a $100.00 egift card (gift card for online purchases) at a 9.3% discount. So, you can get the $100.00 sears gift card for $90.71. You could use that card on that order and save almost $10.00 more.

I love Raise.com. I use it to buy $100 Dunkin Donut gift cards for about $74.00! (We drink a lot of coffee)

I bought a DWP611 (the complete unit) vs the DNP611 (spindle only replacement) for less than $100 on Amazon a month ago. Wonder why the replacement unit cost more than the original unit that has a lifter and base plate?

Volume, and Amazon fiddling w/ the price to balance their inventory.
