If you live in an area where snow is a regular part of your winter days, a solid snow blower is essential for stress-free driveway and walkway clearing. While many models, both gas and electric, can set you back several hundred bucks, the snow gods have seriously slashed the price on one top-selling Snow Joe 21-inch option, taking it from $249 to just $129 at both Amazon and Walmart.

The brand's SJ625E single-stage snow thrower, now a whopping 48% off, is a powerful, corded electric pick that’s ideal for mid-sized outdoor spaces. According to the company, its 15-amp motor can move up to 800 pounds of snow per minute, all without gas, oil or tune-ups. That means not only will maintenance be a breeze, you’ll save hours post-snowfall as it quickly and safely clears your outdoor spaces.
With stellar reviews at both retailers, this machine has shoppers praising it for being easy to assemble and even easier to use. As one recent Amazon buyer put it, “I'm a senior citizen and this is the first snow blower I've ever bought. I had a difficult time getting the cotter pin in, but otherwise assembly was easy. We had our first snow fall, about 6 [inches], and the snow blower worked really well. It was lightweight, easy to push, did a great job clearing the snow and I love that it has an LED light. Definitely worth the money!!!”
Another called it “one lean, mean Snow-Joe'in machine…” adding, “This bad boy made quick work of 12+ inches of God's gift to skiers. ... If I had enough cord ... I'd still be going, doing the whole street... YOU GO SNOW JOE!!!”
For early risers or those who do their best work after the sun goes down, you can also check out this slightly pricier 18-inch, 15-amp SJ623E model, which comes with the addition of headlights and is on sale for $139 (down from $249.99).
Speedy shipping is ensured by both sites, so you can be saving your back from all that manual shoveling in no time at all. That means more time spent cozied up inside with a cup of tea, coffee or cocoa and a good book or show—sounds like a win-win to us!
