The busiest shopping day of the year is just around the corner and the anticipation is getting hard to handle. One of the most important things to remember during this retail holiday is that good prices don’t always equal good value. While we may not be experts when it comes to Black Friday shopping, we do know a thing or two about appliances. In an effort to help you get the best appliance for the best price this year, we thought we’d share a
bit of our knowledge. If you’re looking to buy a fancy new fridge or a matching washer and dryer, take a second to read through our appliance shopping guide before heading out the door. We promise you’ll thank us when you’re not stuck shopping for the same thing a few years down the road.
There are a few important things you need to think about before heading out an appliance buying adventure this Black Friday. Start by making a list of your must haves in the appliance you’re shopping for. What size should it be? This is an important one. Also measure the space available in your kitchen before making a purchase. Trying to squeeze a 28inch fridge into a space designed for a 26inch one is not going to work. Do you have a certain color in mind? How about features – which ones are most important to you? Nailing down the answers to these questions early on will keep you moving when a sale seems too good to pass on – even at a steal of a deal, that orange stove won’t look too hot in your kitchen. Next, set a budget - what would you ideally like to spend and what’s the most you can comfortably afford?
Although the best deals do tend to be on pairs or sets of appliances, if you’re only looking for one piece you should still be able to find it at a great price . Do a little research ahead of time to find out which stores are including appliances in their sales this year. Most major retailers include a little bit of everything in their promotions, but some of the smaller, local outfits might also be offering great discounts this year and stopping by could be worth your while. Not only are smaller stores less likely to be jam packed with shoppers, you’ll probably also have the opportunity to ask more questions about the appliance you’re interested in - always a bonus.

Last but not least, it’s very important to consider the environmental impact of your appliance. In comparison to what was available 25 years ago, modern appliances are quite energy efficient but there are still some things that you need to take into account. Spend a few minutes browsing our Guide to Energy Efficient Appliances and learn everything there is to know about EnergyStar Appliances before you head out the door!
