Acacia scale pricing

Recommendations for buyers and upgraders from the site's members.

Being thrifty, I've been watching the pricing on the Acacia scales for most of the year and am learning that they never go on sale. On the chance a site is doing some sort of promo, they are usually a brand that is excluded. Is this right?

Yeah they are always pretty pricey.

If you're open to a less expensive alternative, the Brewista Smart Scale is quite good and generally about 1/3 of the price of the Acaia.

The only time I've ever seen the Lunar on sale was Espresso Parts on Black Friday ($25 off). If you're hoping to get a new Lunar on sale, I would advise not holding your breath. My Brewista 2 died suddenly after 4 1/2 years, and I replaced it with a new, full-price Lunar. After using the Lunar for a week, I wish I had switched much sooner - even though it's almost triple the cost. It is so much more responsive and the numbers are much easier and more pleasant to read (5 levels of brightness setting; currently at the default, 2)). It's such a joy to use.

Going from the Brewista to the Lunar is comparable to driving a hooptie for years and then jumping into a Mercedes AMG edition.

When I bought my Lunar I tried to order it from three sites that offered discounts and all three said the Acaia was not eligible.

Cool, thanks for all the feedback. May just have to bite the bullet soon, been through plenty of the cheaper options and was waiting patiently on a sale.

I was able to get my Pearl new on eBay (sold by someone clearing their stock) for $60 and like new Lunar from Amazon warehouse deal for $140

I can really sympathize with the Acacia scale prices. I have a hard time buying anything at full price. Waited for a while hoping a Luna would go on sale. Didn't happen. Only sales were old models.

Sometimes vendors have rebate sales. If they have a points program as well you can accumulate points and use them with a rebate to cut down a purchase price. Makes it hurt less.

If you have an Instagram account and have not bought anything through their shopping section yet you may have a 20% off first purchase coupon, that's what I used for my Lunar. If you're eligible it'll pop up when you start browsing.
