Would you buy this Blackstone?? (Pics)

Have been thinking about adding a 36” Blackstone to the arsenal so have been looking for a good deal. My local Walmart has a few already put together that have been sitting out amongst the plants, flowers, bags of charcoal, etc. 
This one has a few “spots “ and has been discounted 60 bucks. 
1) Would you buy it?
2) How much would you offer?

    Those little spots would never be an issue.
    There is a newer model out with the grease trap in the back. 
    Thank you,

    I'd give $60, as above, those spots won't be a problem.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Tractor supply typically has a sale in the fall as well.

    Thanks for the info and the links guys. Gives me an idea of how low these things can go. My Walmart wants $185 for this one right now so my plan is to wait and see if i can get them to drop this one drastically or wait until the Fall.

    Space and even heat distribution. Even on an XL a griddle is only a 12" pan or so, maybe slightly bigger. The Blackstone is 36" with multiple burners to have multiple cooking zones.
