When is the Best Time to Buy Appliances?

A major appliance should never be an impulse buy. We pinpoint the best moments to buy, on and offline.Appliance Blog

When it comes to landing bargains on major appliances, timing is everything. And the best time to buy home appliances is when stores need you more than you need a new home appliance.

Generally, that means you can get more value for your money:

September, October, and January: when manufacturers roll out new home appliance models, and retailers are eager to move last year's inventory. (Refrigerators are the exception. New models come out in the spring.)

Last days of the month when stores are desperate to meet quotes and are more likely to bicker over prices.

Thursday, the day before the weekend rush when aisles are less crowded.

Major holidays - Labor Day, Memorial Day, President's Day, Black Thursday (Friday, Saturday) -- when stores take advantage of your day off and slash prices.

Fall and winter are the best seasons to buy air conditioners and gas grills, because few buyers think about warm-weather appliances when leaves and snow cover the ground.

This is some really helpful information, we have been considering getting a grill soon and we could need a good washer. I'm always up for tips on how to save a bit more money anywhere I can. Appliances are known to cause a lot of debt so it's always good to get them at a cheaper price.
