With 20% discount, that makes the cost %680.00. Is that correct?

Discount is coming from VMInnovations. You must enter your email address to get the discount. After reading buyer reviews from VMI, I chose to not give them my email address.

I've never had an issue buying stuff from Newegg.

They're local to me. We have a Champion and took it to them to fix the choke, it didn't work on remote start. Fixed it in two days and the charge was less than $100.00. Totally recommend them and Champion.

I have no problems with Newegg either. I have bought a lot of stuff from them. I was concerned about the discount coming from a third party that requires my email address before they will apply the discount. I did a search on VMInnovations and was concerned about what I saw. If someone goes through with this purchase, please keep us updated.

I created an e-mail address that I only use for this kind of stuff. Name and passwords are unrelated to my primary e-mail address. I rarely log on to that account unless I am tracking an order, that makes it easy to ignore junk mail...

That's a good point, I think. As long as the purchase doesn't have to be made with that email address. I have a couple of throw away addresses, too, but as you say I don't check them often, and sometimes discard them.
I would still like to hear from anyone who purchases this. I am more interested in a remote start Champion, but for the cost difference, I might change my mind.

I'm probably already signed up for their emails. I bought all of the components for a computer from them a few years ago, and assembled my own.
Now I need to decide if the remote start is worth it, or will the remote start one go on sale before I need it the end of April. Hmmmm...

BTW, thanks for your input.

I have the 3400 duel fuel. It runs my 15k btu Coleman mach3 in eco mode. It will ramp up quickly when the compressor kicks on but I ran it for 3 days using the AC at 90+ degrees with both propane and gas during the eclipse. Had the converter and TV going. Everything else was using propane.

Great generator. I got 14hrs on a 20lb tank of propane (exchange not refill) and 12.5 on gas with several refuel stops. I ran the propane at night so I would not have to wake up to swap it every few hours. Ran like a champion

VMInnovations sells a TON of Champion inverter generators on eBay. They must be some kind of partner with Champion. They offer free shipping and their reviews are good.



I bought ours refurbed from an authorized service center, the price was $709 delivered. If NewEgg is selling brand new for $679, that is a good deal!

I bought 2. One for me, and my dad had troubles ordering, so I bought his too. The first one was supposed to come today, but we got like a foot of snow on top of frozen rain. Oddly, I haven't seen it yet...

Are they short enough to fit under a tonneau cover? Man I hope so, otherwise I'm not sure what I'm gonna do.

This is a great deal, thinking about ordering one tonight. Has anyone received theirs yet that recently bought one through Newegg? I wasnít sure if the price is always this low with the discount. Thanks

I got mine. I pushed it (in the box) out of the way of my wife's car for when she got home. That's as much as I've had time for.

The one I ordered for my dad had a "weather event" and wasn't delivered today like it was supposed to be.
