Best Time Of Year To Buy A Refrigerator
What shall I consider while deciding upon the right time to buy a refrigerator?
Unlike most other electronic products, refrigerators have a fairly long like. My Samsung refrigerator has a warranty of 10 years on the compressor. This means that unless the brand from which you wish to buy your refrigerator has promised a considerable innovation in the upcoming versions, you needn’t actually worry about the date of manufacture of the refrigerator. I mean you intend to use it for more than a decade, so why would a few months or an year really matter?
Now once you have accepted this compromise on the date of manufacture of the fridge, the best time to buy the product is to be judged on the following parameters:
- The time of the year when a refrigerator would be priced the least.
- Once the refrigerator’s model has been in the market long enough for people to give reliable reviews.
- Upcoming models and their time.
The best time to buy a refrigerator can be judged as follows:
1] Festive offers
If you are in the USA and are checking for the right time to buy a refrigerator, holiday sales are usually on Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Fourth of July, New Year’s, obviously Christmas sale. To score an even better deal, try the midnight lightening offers, especially on Amazon.
The best method to find the cheapest refrigerator during a festive sale is to buy it as soon as the sale starts. Keep your cards ready and book the deal as soon as the clock ticks 12 at midnight.
2] Before the release of a new model
While I have suggested earlier that one should wait for some time before buying a new model of a refrigerator, if you are focused on an upcoming model, then it is better to place the order before its launch. Usually, the prices are less for pre-booking.
3] Book the previous model of the refrigerator after the launch of the new model
Whenever a new model of an appliance is launched, people tend to prefer it over the previous model. Now in such a situation, the company needs to rid their stores of the leftover stock of the previous model. That’s when they start selling refrigerators cheap.
Interestingly, since refrigerators are to work for more than a decade, the previous model wouldn’t be bad at half the price or less.
4] At the end of the month
Online shopping giants are aware of the rush people get as soon as they receive the “salary credited” message. That’s when most people buy stuff for the stores (both online and offline) and that is also exactly the time when you shouldn’t buy things which aren’t absolutely necessary.
But, just by the end of the month, the situation is opposite. Most people have exhausted most of their salary and sales are down. So online stores tend to reduce prices of refrigerators and other products. Use this time to buy refrigerators.
