It use to be that you would go to your local hardware and appliance stores or to the anchor stores in the Mall to find a new appliance. Now just like apparel outlets, appliance outlets are available to the consumer. Usually appliance outlets offer sales of up to 60% off the manufacturer suggested retail price. Some appliance factory outlets have a leader line, one they clearly have an agreement with to carry extensively. However, Markdown Mom finds that the real opportunities come in the high-end appliances and European designs that are usually carried by kitchen design retailers. Design appliances from Viking, Wolf and others are carried in limited supplies, but if you are in the market to upgrade your kitchen appliances, you may want to check-out the offerings at appliance factory outlets–if you can’t find what you’re looking for, just keep rechecking–sooner or later you’re bound to find what you’re looking for.
The downsize is that you won’t get promotional interest rates like 0% 28% that are offered from time-to-time at the regular stores. Usually interest rates at a factory outlet are close-end and can run you up to . Additionally, factory outlets do not deliver, or do not deliver free. Markdown Mom recommends factory outlet appliances on a cash & carry basis to avoid high interest rates and delivery charges. If you can swing a cash purchase of $1000 or more, you can find real savings. Remember, you can either sell your old appliance or save it for the “free” day at your local recycling center or landfill.
