How to save money when purchasing appliances
Need a new refrigerator, cooker, washer/dryer set? Not only are appliances costly, there are so many from which to choose, it can seem overwhelming for many buyers in the market. So, when time comes to upgrade, these are a few simple things you can do to find the ideal fit for your home, and of course, save on the price in the process.
Shop around -
There's no way around it, if you want to save, you have to be a consumer shopper. Compare brands, catalogues, local appliance retailers, online dealers, used and new retailers, and so forth. The more places you visit (locally and online) and the more comparison you do, the more likely it is you will find the best deal out there.
Consider catalogue shopping -
Catalogues allow for financing options; and, in many cases, if you spend a certain amount on the purchase, interest-free financing for a fixed period. So, you pay the flat price, pay it off over time, and avoid interest from accruing, simply by considering the option of purchasing via catalogue.
Consider all brands -
Even if you are a brand loyalist, you will often find different manufacturers (and sometimes lesser known names) offer the same exact thing as the top, well-known brand names. But, you can save quite a bit with lesser known names. So, consider this option in choosing new appliances.
Consider used -
Many retailers sell used appliances; you may initially be opposed to it, but in many cases, some people return appliances without ever using them. And, because they are labelled as "used" you can save 50% on the original price or more. Of course, it's not always a great bet, but at least consider the option if you really wish to save.
You can find affordable appliances, these are some simple tips any shopper can utilise, in an effort to finding the best deal out there to be found.
