The Best Time to Buy Appliances

When is the best time to buy a new appliance? There are many good answers to that question. Consider your motivations, your current financial state, and whatever sales are happening before you shop.

When you have the money

Do some price comparison and figure out what an average price is for the appliance you want to buy. Start saving up that money, as best you can. Ideally, you will be able to slowly save up for a new appliance before the current one breaks.

What if your refrigerator has already “died”? You might have to buy a new one with your credit card. This is especially true if your fridge is full of food from a fresh trip to the grocery store. Wait too long, and the food will rot.

When there is a holiday

Stores that sell large appliances often have sales during holidays. If the holiday comes with a three-day weekend, or a random day off of work – there will be an appliance sale happening. Some of the best times to buy appliances include: President’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the Fourth of July.

When the month is about to end

Have you ever worked in retail? If so, then you are aware that the end of the month is a stressful time when stores rush to fulfill their quotas. Managers will push workers to make more sales before the month ends.

Visit a store that sells appliances a few days before the end of the month. You are in the best position to try and negotiate for a lower price on the appliance you want to buy.

When the store is closing

When Sears closed its stores, shoppers came to get great deals on appliances. J.C. Penney recently made the decision to stop selling appliances – and is in the process of some stores. Customers can expect big discounts on appliances when stores are closing.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
