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.
