Find great deals on appliances for your home at Spencers Appliance.
The first place to start when searching for new appliances is the scratch and dent aisle. Scratch and dent appliances only have minor cosmetic issues that prevent them from being sold to customers at full price. They are fully functioning and don’t have any other issues beyond a few bumps that occurred during the transit process.
It’s possible to save between 10-20% on scratch and dent appliances. You can find appliances from almost every brand, which means this is a great place to get a good deal. The only drawback is that you can’t guarantee that there will be scratch and dent options available. There might not be any dented refrigerators for sale or they might not meet your size needs. While this is a good place to find discount appliances, you shouldn’t assume that this is where you will find exactly what you need.
The next step in your search for discount appliances is to visit the clearance section. Appliances go on clearance when they are outdated and the store needs to make room for the latest models. For example, if the 2024 Samsung refrigerator models start to arrive, the 2023 Samsung refrigerators would need to be moved or sold. Stores will often steeply discount these old models and place them on clearance just so they can get moved out of the store.
There is nothing wrong with appliances on clearance – they are even in better condition than the scratch and dent units. There might not even be a difference in the features and technology between one model year and the next. This is great news for anyone who is looking for discount appliances because you can save money without sacrificing quality.
However, clearance items have the same drawback as scratch and dent models: you can’t control which items are available. If this year was a popular time to buy new ranges, there might not be any left to mark down.
If you have a specific appliance in mind for your kitchen and still want to save, start tracking the sales of the appliance stores in your area. Throughout the year, stores will discount appliances to celebrate various holidays or to entice customers to shop. Some of the biggest holidays for appliance discounts include Memorial Day and Labor Day. Black Friday is also a great time to buy steeply discounted models.
If there isn’t a major sale happening, check the promotions tab online. You might find coupons for discount home appliances and manufacturer rebates to help you save even more. This is a great way to save if you need to replace your items during a time when most units aren’t discounted – like early in the new year.
Know that some appliances have seasonal sales at different times of the year than others. For example, if your air conditioner barely made it through the summer, try to wait until January or February to replace it. The models will usually be discounted because demand for AC units is low during the middle of winter.
If you are buying from Spencers, one of the best places to find deals and discounted appliances is the Hot Buys section. Our team curates specific items that customers love and offers deals on these units for a short time. We frequently change up our Hot Buys picks, which means a refrigerator deal that’s here today might be gone tomorrow.
Tracking the Hot Buys list is a great way to find your dream appliance at a great price. There’s also good news if you don’t want to remember to check our website every day: you can sign up for the Hot Buys newsletter and receive discounts right in your inbox. Simply scroll through these emails to see if that induction range or front-load washer that you’ve had your eye on is on sale.
If you decide that you no longer want to receive Hot Buys alerts, you can unsubscribe at any time.
Another great way to find discount kitchen appliances is to buy items in bulk. Kitchen packages group two to five items together into one purchase which allows you to outfit your entire kitchen at once. This is a great option if you are remodeling your home because you won’t have to individually research and purchase each item individually. You can save around 20% on all of your appliances by buying packages instead of furnishing your kitchen one item at a time.
In some cases, buying packages makes sense because you would need both of the appliances anyway. A common two-piece kitchen appliance package is a range paired with a microwave that has a ventilation system. These two appliances can sync together so your kitchen stays free of smoke. In this case, you actually get four appliances in one purchase: an oven, a stove, a microwave, and a ventilation hood.
You can also find packages that include refrigerators of all sizes, ovens, stoves, dishwashers, and various other necessities.
You can save on home appliances by combining these deals. You can pick up a clearance item and apply a manufacturer rebate or store coupon to save even more. However, some people still need a little help covering the cost of their appliances. This is where our finance team comes in. We offer a variety of financing options that you can choose from based on your payment preferences.
For example, you can apply for a BrandSource credit card if you want to make payments on the appliance on your schedule. You can control how quickly you pay off the appliance from month to month.
You can also check out our Lease-to-Own program where you pay off your appliance over time. This is a good option for people who prefer regular payments. Our team will walk you through your various options so you can make the best possible choice. We are happy to pair you with a new appliance and can work with your financial situation.
Can you negotiate the price of appliances?
In most cases, you cannot negotiate the price of appliances. Stores work carefully with manufacturers to set price points and they sometimes have agreements with price minimums. However, there are other ways to save. You can shop for clearance appliances, track seasonal sales, and apply coupons whenever they are available.
What are the best times of year to buy appliances?
There are two key times to buy appliances: during major holidays and toward the last months of the year. Check for seasonal sales during Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Labor Day to find steep discounts. You can also take advantage of Black Friday and end-of-year clearance sales to save.
How can I save money on appliances?
There are several ways to save money on appliances for your home. You can buy scratch and dent models, look for clearance appliances, and apply coupons for seasonal sales. The best part is that you can combine discounts in order to save as much as possible. Do your research to get the best deals possible.
