Are you in the process of building a new home or looking to upgrade/refinish your kitchen and need appliances? There are many ways that you can go about getting them cheaper if you knew where to look. Here is a list of tips to help you in your search for great deals on appliances.
1.) Go to EBAY – EBAY is a great place for finding deals on anything that you are interested. Many stores even sell discounted appliances and are very reputable. Just watch the shipping charges because they can make up the discount difference. You can also search for local sellers and just pick the appliances up for free.
2.) Google shopping results search – Another great internet tool to compare appliance prices is the Google shopping results tool. Just go to google.com and type in what you are looking for. About 4 links down in most cases you will see a “Shopping results for ….” link. Click on it and you will see price matches of many other vendors selling the same or similar item. You can find many great deals that you would be unable to find otherwise.
3.) Get 10% off coupons – Many stores have 10% off coupons for anything in the store. Lowes has a moving coupon that’s Free, and you can find many others on EBAY.
4.) Buy Gift cards at reduced rates and use them – There are websites that you can buy and trade gift cards at reduced rates. There are also credit card cash backs that will allow you to earn discounted gift cards as well.
5.) Search special discount days that will give you an additional 10% off – Sears is big for having special discount events. Pay attention and they will have 2 or 3 a year. Just look in the local paper for these special events.
6.) Price match – If you find a great deal at 1 local store, then another will price match and possibly give you a 10% discount on top of that (Sears is good for this). Just make sure you have proof that the deal exists by printing it off and bringing it in as proof.
7.) Deal with the store -Especially if you are getting multiple items, you should be a able to work out a multi-appliance discount, and/or free shipping with the whole deal. All you have to do is ask.
8.) Add deals together – Don’t forget to add the deals 1-7 together. So get your gift cards, find your deals online, bring in the proof, and come on a special discount date. All of these tips together can easily help you earn 20%-30% in total savings. So if you are purchasing $5000 in appliances, then this will save you $1000-$1500.
