Buying your next appliance can be costly! After all, there is a reason it is called a major appliance. There are many different brands, models and features that you need to sort through and even more importantly there is finding the best deal!
Let us take some of the stress of finding the best price off your shoulders, by providing you with 6 tips that will help you find the BEST DEALS!
1) SHOP LOCAL
Keep your money in your local community and shop “local” businesses. Not only will you be helping the economy in which you live, but local business usually have better customer service as well as BETTER PRICING! Even better than the major retailer sale prices. Which leads us to tip #2…..
2) DON’T FALL FOR %-OFF DEALS AND THINK ITS THE BEST DEAL!
Sales are great, but just because something is on sale, does not mean that you are getting the best price. Lets look at an example…..10% off of $800 = $720. However another retailers, non sale price could be $700 which is still cheaper than the sale price!
3) BE AWARE OF HIDDEN COSTS!
Do you need to purchase cords, water-line kits, washer houses etc? And if so, how much are you being charged? Add up your accessories and all of a sudden you are paying more!
4) HOW MUCH IS DELIVERY?
How much does the retailer charge for delivery? What kind of delivery service is it? Curbside, or in home placement, it does make a difference! Imagine trying to bring in a 300 lb refrigerator from your garage to the house! In that moment, you probably wished you had gone with the in home placement delivery! Also if free local delivery is being offered, what is considered local? Sometimes it can be as little as 10 miles.
5) SHOP DISPLAY MODELS/SCRATCH AND DENT
These appliances models may have a small dent/scratch in a place that is not noticeable. AND as a result you could save HUNDREDS! Plus with stainless steel, it only takes 1 incident of your child running into the refrigerator or other appliance and WHAM, you have a dent or scratch!
6) PAY IN CASH!
Yes cash really is KING. And we don’t mean debit cards or checks. If you want to negotiate, the first rule you should know is to bring cash. Paying with credit/debt or financing comes with merchant service fees that retailers have to pay. Also understand that if you PICK UP YOURSELF you may get a better deal.
