Money Saving Tips: Appliance Discounts

January 31, 2017

1. Buy Floor Models or Returned Appliances. Simply talking to a store manager about purchasing the floor models or returned items can save you hundreds!

2. Buy Used Appliances. If making purchases off of Craiglist or searching yard sales is too unreliable for your tastes then Google “used appliances” to find local vendors. I’ve bought a stainless steel refrigerator and a washer at Habitat for Humanity. Companies will often donate scratched and dented items, and all appliances are tested before they’re sold.

3. Use Coupons. The post office has moving kits that usually include coupons. Go to your local P.O. and ask for one.  You can also ask your realtor for coupons. Some give them to their customers as a moving gift.

4. Buy Discounted Gift Cards. Use sites like Raise.com or Gift Card Granny to buy cards worth more than you paid. Get your money's worth by using them to buy appliances at stores like Sears, Home Depot or Lowes.

5. Buy Scratched or Dented Items. You’ll never see the scratches on the fridge I got from a local appliance store because they're on the side that’s up against a wall! Simple cosmetic dings can lower the price those appliances you have your eye on!
