The 5 Best Times to Buy Large Appliances
Purchasing a new appliance can be nerve-wracking – with so many options and such a big price tag attached to them, it can be hard deciding on the perfect one for your home. If you’re in the market for a good deal on appliances (and let’s face it, who isn’t?), we’ve got some good news for you. A recent Consumer Reports study found that “deep discounts for many products are still tied to a particular month” or time of the year. With just this little bit of insider knowledge, you can find the best deals on appliances.
Start of the New Year (January and February)
Most department stores hang on to their old inventory while waiting for the newest models to arrive. When the new year hits and everyone is searching for the latest model, stores are desperate to get rid of their older units and will often offer them at a discount.
Spring (April and May)
As the warmer weather starts to roll in, stores will start trying to get rid of cold weather appliances, like space heaters and radiator equipment. Shop off season and pick up any heaters that may come in handy in a few months.
Fall (September and October)
If you’re looking to redo the kitchen, your best bet is to do it in the fall. Most manufacturers roll out their latest appliances at the end of the year, meaning last year’s models are now on sale. Now, you can get a brand new washing machine, oven, microwave, or laundry machine for much less than it was just a few weeks ago.
Holidays like President’s Day, Memorial Day, Black Friday, and Labor Day are great times to score big discounts on appliances, whether they are in season or not.
The End of the Month
This one might be a little more hit-or-miss, but at the end of the month, salesmen are under more pressure to meet their commission quotas and may be more likely to bargain with you.
