Common sense is not as common as you think.

They are either making a huge loss on these or have crazy high markup

Probably high markup + some loss, maybe it's old stock they want cleared?

Either way those are some good deals.

A random assortment, but killer pricing, just what this bargains and deals section was set up for.  Thanks!

I got one of the ceramic tower heaters (GPCT420).

I tried it for the first time this evening. It worked very well. The safety sensor is very sensitive - that's a good thing.

There is one issue I'm working through which is most likely not related to the heater. On high heat my 16A breaker tripped after a few minutes. In theory there is very little else on that circuit. I have run heaters on it before with no issues. I will have a better look tomorrow, it is unlikely to be the heater.

Edit: Also got an upright fan heater GPFH260 for $11.

$34!! for the ceramic tower GPCT420. It's a good product. Using it for a while now I would have been happy to pay close to full price earlier in the year. You would be very lucky to get one for that. Check pricespy tho.

My Goldair ceramic tower GPCT420 has suffered a concerning control failure.
