What is the Best Month to Buy a Refrigerator?

If you have shopped for large appliances in the past, you know that there are specific times of the year when you can get a decent deal on a new refrigerator.

A fair deal is not limited to one specific month as manufacturers and stores cycle through their products differently. Since buying a new appliance is often based on need, you can still get a great price by shopping sales or making an informed purchase.

Popular Sale Holidays

If you plan to shop big box stores for appliances, then popular shopping holidays may be a good time to buy a new refrigerator as stores try to lure in shoppers with deep discounts.

• Memorial Day
• Labor Day
• July 4th
• The holiday season (September to December)
• Black Friday
• Day after Christmas
• January – shops clearance their holiday inventory
• End of each season, while stores transition to new merchandise

Shopping Online

Buying a new appliance online is a different experience than shopping in a brick-and-mortar store. Thanks to a wealth of information on the internet, you can do proper research and compare and contrast appliances. Popular shopping holidays online include all major holidays listed above, plus Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday. Before you buy, check out:

• Manufacturer's website for detailed product descriptions and features
• Consumer reviews
• Pricing
• Installation requirements, including dimensions
• Warranty and extended warranties
• Color and style
• Storage capacity
• Electrical requirements
• Delivery options and costs
• Additional features

Also, it is important to note that what you pay at the initial checkout is not the true cost of the refrigerator—budget for any installation costs, energy usage, and future maintenance. With proper research, you will not have to compromise on any must-have features in addition to saving money.
