Purchasing large home appliances such as a washer and dryer, dishwasher, oven, or refrigerator can be a significant financial commitment. In modern times, they’ve become essential appliances that must last for a while. Statistics show that more than 80% of households in the U.S. own washing machines.
Despite the cost of quality washers and dryers, you don’t always have to spend big bucks to get a good washer and dryer. You can potentially find good deals if you shop smart. For instance, you may get discounts or reduced prices by shopping holiday and holiday weekends, end-of-month, and retail holiday sales.
This article helps you identify when washers go on sale to help you get washers and dryers at pocket-friendly rates.
Before purchasing a washing machine, extensive research and price tracking can help you identify in-store, site-wide, and holiday season sales. Many manufacturers and retailers often give out sale coupons offering blanket discounts on their appliances, including washing machines. Here are a few good times of year to consider if you’re interested in finding a deal on a washer or dryer:
Do you know some washer and dryer brands typically release their latest product models around September? On some holidays, like Labor Day, consumers may even take the day off to go shopping. With most retailers trying to clear floor space for the newer models, you may see discounted prices on the older models. As a note, the yearly improvements in washers and dryers can often be aesthetic rather than functional, so you may not miss much by looking for a discounted older model.
Black Friday is the Friday after the Thanksgiving holiday that typically marks the commencement of Christmas season shopping. Merchants usually use this final significant appliance sales period to get rid of older washers and dryers, making room for new appliances and holiday merchandise in preparation for Christmas. With Black Friday discounts, you may find a way to save money on a washing machine with your preferred features, even on a budget or with a less-than-perfect credit score.
Cyber Monday is the first Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday when online retailers offer discounted prices on their goods. This option helps if you’re not willing to compromise spending time with your loved ones on Thanksgiving to go washer shopping or you’re not ready to wait in the long Black Friday lines. It’s common for large retailers to offer significant discounts for washers and dryers on Cyber Monday.
Memorial Day typically marks the start of summer shopping, with many retailers and manufacturers offering significant discounts on big-ticket appliances such as washers and dryers. For one example, Maytag also holds its annual monthly-long saving event around this time. If you research, you may find new washers in-store or online and be able to take advantage of these seasonally discounted prices.
President’s Day sales happen around President’s Day in February and are another option for those who didn’t purchase everything they desired during the holidays. On President’s Day sales events, you can typically access discounts on appliances like washers at stores like American Freight, Conn’s, and American Furniture Warehouse on President’s Day.
Here are a few tips that might be worth considering as you consider finding a new washer or dryer.
Shopping around allows you to explore various shopping deals and compare washer features and prices. Look for rebates or in-store discounts. Although rebates offer financial compensation, the refund process may take some time. As you compare different stores, be considerate of any warranties available, along with the washer features and functions you’re looking for.
In some stores, open-box washers are often priced lower than unopened washers. Open-box means the box for the washer has been opened, but the machine is still fully functional and without damage. Sometimes, open-box appliances are available when other customers have returned a product that is still in working order and in good condition.
Many merchants offer shopping reward programs to their loyal customers. These rewards may include blanket coupons that you can use to help reduce the cost of your new washer.
In summary, we hope some of these tips are helpful as you look to find the best sales and discounts for a new-to-you washer and dryer set. Happy shopping!
