Desperate Times Call For....Rebates

There seems to be a theme to The Yale Blog. Every month, I seem to be amazed by the sheer magnitude of rebates. Actually, Sears does a pretty good job advertising their 20% off sale.

With the economy in recession, most manufacturers are offering individual and package rebates, which can total 40%. Consider rebates when you researching an appliance purchase. Buying a complete kitchen from one company will maximize the amount of rebate dollars.

Lets look at a few individual pieces by brand...

Frigidaire: Their best selling dishwasher and washer have $150 in rebates

Bosch: $200 on their popular slide in ranges and $150 on their best selling dishwasher.

GE Cafe: $150 on the dishwasher and $100 on the refrigerator.

KitchenAid: $175 on their best selling dishwasher.



  1. Hi! I liked your blog a lot. It looks fantastic. One thing I must say that buying home appliances has become a bit tricky these days as the market has so many things to offer. Many times we get puzzled thinking about the authenticity of the product.

  2. Hey thanks... Appliance choices should be easier than they are, butwhat puzzles you specifically?
