Best Buy Canada: Lasko 10" Floor Fan Was $25 | Now $15
Best Buy Canada has a one-day deal on air conditioners and fans. I picked out this affordable Lasko 10" Floor Fan (505C) as a great deal for Moosers. Originally $24.99, the fan is now on sale for $14.99.
$15 is a great price for a 10" fan. I could not find this fan elsewhere in Canada, but I did find it three places in the USA. The Lasko 505 10" fan costs $21.08 @ Newegg.com, $17.96 @ Home Depot US, and $17.96 @ Amazon.com. All those prices are in USD and do not include shipping.
Let us talk shipping for a minute. This 10" Lasko fan comes in below the $25 minimum for free shipping. I present two options. First, you can reserve and pick up at your local store. Secondly, and my favourite option, is purchase two of these fans ($14.99 x 2 = $29.98), which would then qualify for free shipping. I own two fans: one is for the bedroom and one is for the living room. I like sticking the fans in my windows at night to create better circulation. On one side, have a fan that points in and on the other side of your house have another that points out.
There are no reviews on Best Buy's website so I picked one off the Home Depot (US) website. One reviewer on there said:
Easy to start using--just take out of box and plug in.It can be set on a table,desk or placed on floor. The best feature is how easy it is to tilt for several different directions of air flow. Very powerful for it's size.
This fan is a great basic for your home. The Lasko fan features two quiet speeds. The fan is lightweight and has a carrying handle for moving it from room to room. You can use this fan on the floor or as a table fan. The tilting head allows you to control the direction of the airflow.
If you are looking for a standing fan, then purchase the Lasko 16" Stand Fan (2521C) - Black on sale from $39.99 down to $29.99. I like oscillating fans, personally. If you like the idea of a table fan but want a smaller unit, then look at the Honeywell 8" Tabletop Air Circulator Fan (HT-900C) on sale from $19.99 down to $14.99.
