Shopping for a new refrigerator? Use these tips before you head to the appliance store to save some money.
Don’t limit yourself to just one store in your search for your next refrigerator. Visit multiple appliance stores in your area to see who has the best deal. Often time, stores will match the price of their competitors, or even beat them, to get your business. Don’t limit your search to physical stores either – sometimes online retailers will have the best deals.
Know What the Price Includes
Take price tags with a grain of salt: the number you see on the tag won’t be the price you pay when all is said and done. Besides taxes, some companies will charge extra for extended warranties, delivery, and installation. Finding a retailer that includes these services for free could save you money, even if the price tag on the actual appliance is a little bit higher.
Purchase a Floor Model
Ask a salesperson if they have any floor models or “as is” appliances available for sale. These units might have a small ding or scratch and won’t come in its original packaging, but if you are saving hundreds of dollars, do you really care?
Buy Energy Star
Purchasing an Energy Star appliance may cost a little more money up front, but it is a better investment in the long run. Not only can you save hundreds of dollars per year on your electricity bill, but you may also qualify for a government rebate.
Have Your Fridge Repaired
Want the best way to save money on a new refrigerator? Don’t get one. Often times, your current fridge can be professionally repaired for a fraction of the cost of a new model. It also saves you the hassle of appliance shopping, moving the new refrigerator into your home, and disposing of the old one.
