Ways to Save Money on New Appliances

No one likes spending money on new appliances, so most of us try to put it off as long as possible. Eventually, you get to the point where you can’t ignore it any longer. Your kids are finally out of the house or have graduated from college, and your budget has a little wiggle room in it, but you still don’t want to spend an arm and a leg. Stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave oven—they can really add up. Here are some ways you can save money and still get what you’re looking for.

 

1.      Buy on sale only. This should be a given. Check the newspapers for upcoming sales or clearances. If you find something you like that isn’t on sale, find out when the next sale will be and then consider a purchase. Patience can save money.

2.      Look for discontinued models. You can save hundreds of dollars off your purchase price if you look for a model the manufacturer is no longer making. Typically, the retailer needs to get it off the floor.

3.      Buy last year’s model. Old version, new version—usually the only difference is the price. You can save a lot!

4.      Buy a floor model. You can walk away with a bargain if you don’t mind bringing home a floor model. Typically, you don’t get the box, but you still get the warranty.

5.      Look for a “slightly” damaged model. You can save money by buying something with a little scratch or dent that has no bearing on the function of the appliance and it may not even be visible once you’ve installed it.

6.      Ask about a package deal. There may be discounts if you’re buying more than one appliance.

7.      Ask about trade-ins. Check the yellow pages or call appliance dealers in your area to see if they accept trade-ins. Then find out what your appliance is worth.

8.      Only buy what you need. Don’t go for models that have all the extras that you probably wouldn’t use anyway. You can save a lot of money by sticking with the basics. Plus, you have less chance of something breaking that would cause a repair bill.
