Honest opinions about how to buy Appliances and Lighting.

Basic Math

As I have posted previously, appliance prices, like gas, insurance and food are on the rise. Frigidaire and Whirlpool both announced increases of 6% effective November 1.

They can announce increases. I am not sure their true intentions. Lets look (Scroll to the bottom if you are pressed for time.)

Frigidaire digital stainless dishwasher. The price is $489( before rebate, but we will be there shortly).


Frigidaire stainless over the range microwave vent $409.


Frigidaire 5 burner convection gas range with power burner $899.


Frigidaire 18 cubic foot pro stainless refrigerator with ice maker $749.


The total is $2546. After rebates the total cost becomes $1599, which is the lowest ever. For consumers, the message is clear:

Pick a brand to maximize the rebate
Buy Rebated Models
Save money
