Announcement: Finding The Best Appliance Discount

Posted on 26 December 2010 by Admin

Buy Home Appliances On Sale When Possible

If you are in the market for home appliances, looking for a home appliance discount is a great way to stretch your dollar. We’ll go into some of the best appliance discount hunting methods there are in just a moment. But first, how can you be sure you actually need a new appliance? If the appliance you are considering replacing is less than five years old, if the replacement appliance parts are still available, spending money on getting it repaired might actually be worth it. Most appliance repairs could run  up a bill that could come up to half as much as a new appliance. If your machine isn’t that old, you really could keep it around for as long as you need to, to get your money’s worth out of it.

Find Major Appliances At The Best Prices

If you’re just starting out, large appliances like a refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, conventional oven and a range and hood, a washer and dryer and a vacuum cleaner can quickly drain your bank account. Even small appliances for your laundry and kitchen can set you back a bundle. And don’t forget your cooking accessories like pots and pans.

Don’t Buy the Most Expensive Appliances

The stores have lots of ways of getting you to spend more money than you have to. One of those is to try to upsell you on more expensive major appliance brands to a bigger fancier model or brand than you actually need. Certainly, the price they give you on the larger model makes it a great buy; but only if you will actually be using it. If yours is a small family, what on earth will you do with an extra large refrigerator with fancy electronics that could probably store enough fresh produce for a family of five? The best appliance discount you could have would come from buying no larger or fancier a model than you actually need. Who wants to pay for bigger air conditioners than you need? And of course, you need to not let the smooth sales talk sway you. Do your homework before you head for the store and only pick appliances that have satisfied customers. Picking something that costs less but that has more stuff going wrong with it can hardly be considered worth it.

Don’t Overlook Scratch and Dent Sales

Now if you actually do have to buy an appliance, what can you do to get those discounts? Certainly, buying holiday season post-Black Friday can be a great time to snag all the discounts. There are new models on the market, and the stores just itch to offload their old inventory. While you’re at it, trying to snag a few appliance discount offers on old models, try to see if they have anything that’s considered B stock. These are dented pieces, units they put out on display. There could be a couple of scratches on them, but they are probably as good as new. You get the full guarantee on them. For accepting B stock, you are awarded with some great discounts.

Compare Appliance Prices

Finally, make sure that you compare all the ads that stores put out in the Sunday papers. You can look at all the different prices and do your comparison shopping right in your armchair before you go to the store. And of course, consider heading away from the popular big-box stores. The smaller stores will often tolerate negotiating, and if you pay cash, they may even throw in free delivery. You may even be able to negotiate appliance package deals for the best price.

No matter what appliances you buy, make sure they have the Energy Star rating. This will help to keep your electric bill down somewhat. Some of the most popular appliance manufacturers are General Electric (GE) Whirlpool, Bosch and LG Appliances, just to name a few. Places like Bestbuy, Home Depot, Lowe’s and Sears (Kenmore) are good places to shop. Make sure you check online for appliance reviews and prices before you rush out to the store.
