Buying quality and durable appliances are the best things you could purchase for your home. However, major appliances are expensive which sometimes tempt people to settle for a lower quality. Fortunately, there are ways to buy quality appliances at affordable price.

Looking out for affordable appliances allows you to have substantial savings. Here are 7 smart ways to buy new, quality appliances at a very low price.

  1. Take Advantage of Holidays. Check the calendar before purchasing appliances. The red days on calendars are also the time we see red signages on the stores which indicates discounted sales. Holidays are great opportunities to get expensive appliances at a lower The biggest holiday sales can be observed during Black Friday, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day when retailers give up to 50% Off or more. You can also get discounts on Memorial Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, and many more.
  2. Buy After A New Release. As with most products, prices of appliances drop when new models are release in the market. This is a good opportunity to save money as retailers offers old models at much lower price to make way for new arrivals. This practice also allows you to read reviews and see if a certain model is worth buying since the model has been tested in normal working conditions. New release often comes between September and October.
  3. Find Trade-In Options. Many appliance stores offer trade-in options allowing you to own a new appliance without spending much. This is to encourage using new appliances which are energy efficient and a better choice for the environment. Many appliance stores are partnered with environment protection agencies to help home owners have energy efficient appliances by offering rebates for each old appliance as partial payment of a new appliance. The amount offered on each appliance depends on the age, model, and its type.
  4. Choose Appropriate Size. Resist the temptation of getting a large size appliance if it is more than what you need. This will only make you spend more. Getting the appropriate size for your usage allows you to save money as larger appliances are more expensive.
  5. Consider the ‘Scratch and Dents’ Section. Sometimes the best deals can be found in the ‘Scratch and Dents’ section. You can find a new appliance marked down to 50% or less of its original price. If you are lucky, you can even find a new model in this section with a minor scratch that will be unseen when the appliance is plumbed-in. These appliances are guaranteed functional with only minor flaws. You can of course ask a clerk to have a functionality test for your peace of mind. Most of these appliances also come with a full warranty just like the boxed-up new
  6. Less Packaging. If it’s okay for you to bring home your new appliance without its cardboard box, then this is a good option for you to save money. Buy the display model instead of the in-box appliance. Retailers give huge discounts on these appliances as most of them no longer have a box. Display models are fully functional, unused, and come with a warranty the same as in-box appliances.
  7. Check Prices from Multiple Stores. Many store owners offer appliances at a lower price than the others to be ahead of their competitors. Visit multiple stores to know which one has the lowest price. Some also give freebies or gift cards so it’s a great idea to always lookout for different deals to be able to pick the best one. Include discount appliance stores and online stores when checking for prices as they usually have lower price than big stores.

Plan when to buy appliances and don’t wait until your current appliance breaks before buying a new one. If you suspect it is on its last legs, begin the search for a replacement as soon as possible. This will help you avoid buying at an inopportune time.
