A new appliance is a big-ticket item. Such as needing a new washer and dryer, refrigerator, microwave or stove. Here are my 7 best tips to save!

5. Check Marketplace
If you know what to look for to make sure it is a sound deal, then buying second hand can save. Browse FB Marketplace (or craigslist, local fb YardSale page etc.) to shop a local deal.
6. Buy at the right Time
Certain times a year common items are at their seasonal low price. For appliances, the best time to shop is in the Fall months. Look for deals in September, October and November. Sometimes, timing is everything.
Check your preferred manufacturer websites to see if there is a current rebate. Another place to look is the store’s website, such as Lowe’s. Finally, if you are purchasing an energy efficient appliance, it is worth checking your electric company’s website for a rebate. That is 3 places to hunt for a rebate, happy savings!
