8 Ways to Save Money on Appliances

Best Buy Co, Inc.

Large appliances are expensive. Depending on the model, a refrigerator can set you back $3000!! washersicon , dryersicon start at around $400, rangesicon, microwavesicon, dishwashers, etc.
icon The good news is that this is not a regular monthly or annual expense because appliances tend to last longer. However, when yours breaks and you find that it is time to get a new one, it is an expense that leaves a big hole in your pocket. That hole doesn't have to be so big. Consider the following tips to save money on large appliance purchases: 

Manufacturer Offers and Rebates
A quick online search for 'appliance rebates' shows which manufacturers have rebates and other incentives for purchasing their brand. Websites like  AJ Madison  have a dedicated Appliance Rebate Center where they list
all active rebates

Energy Star Rebates
Products that earn the ENERGY STAR label meet strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the U.S. EPA helping you save energy and money while protecting the environment. Rebate incentives are available for purchasing certified energy star products. You can check
for rebates here. Wondering if the refrigerator you want is energy star certified? Check here.

Price Matching   

This is a great way to save money. Basically, if the item you want is found at a store or online at a lower price, you can ask the merchant where you are buying if they can give you the competitor's price. In other words one store matches their competitor's price in order to make a sell. Stores like Best Buy
icon will often match Amazon's price. This isn't limited to online stores. I've been able to call Target.com and asked them to price match Target's retail store price.  

Stack Savings
Try to stack discounts. For example: Currently Best Buy is offering  Free $100 Gift Card with LG Dishwasher and Range Package. Lookf for offers in Miele, Samsung and other major brands.  If you ask for a price match, you can save even more. 

Manufacturer Outlet
Major savings can also be found on  discontinued, overstock inventory and clearance. There is nothing wrong with the merchandise sold at outlet stores. You are buying directly from the manufacturer. At outlet stores you may also find additional savings like free service contracts.

Sales and Discounts 
Best Months:
Manufacturers introduce new appliance models in September, October & January.  Refrigerator models tend to come out in the Spring. Dishwashers are cheaper in December. No matter the month, new models mean that since current inventory needs to be sold to make space for newer models, there tends to be lots of sales and promotions and other incentives for consumers to buy appliances. 
Best Holidays - Major holiday sales - Labor Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, and of course, Black Friday and also Cyber Monday, Christmas,\ &  After Christmas sales. 
Pre-holiday sales I find that the week of a major holiday, leading up to the weekend's sales, one can find amazing savings. Specially the week of Black Friday. Since Black Friday deals are posted early in the week, you can compare prices to find the best sale.

Bundle Deals
Buying a kitchen  appliance bundles like microwave, a refrigerator, and a range can save you
money. Washer and dryer bundle deals are quite popular. Consider buying the same brand also to save you money.  

Electric Energy Provider
Bundle appliances and save
Consumers generally don't think as their energy provider to be a source of savings for their dryers or washers. But some electric companies offer rebates for purchasing appliance. For example, buying an energy star refrigerator can save Puget Sound Energy customers $25.
