How To Buy a $49 Dishwasher....Cash For Clunkers

I have been following Cash For Clunkers for quite some time. Cash For Clunker rebates are as follows:

$250 Dishwasher
$200 Refrigerator
$175 Washer
$50 Freezer

The government has allocated $6.25 million for this program. In order to qualify either logon to MassSave.com or call 1-877-MA-SWAP1 on April 22. The program runs until May 5.

The key for qualification is speed. Register first at 12:01 am on April 22. Seriously.

A few other points:

You have to register 4 times for 4 different products.

The product must be delivered from an eligible Massachusetts dealer.

The program ends when the money is gone.

The eligible models must be tier 3 EnergyStar..In other words, not everything qualifies.

I haven't fully comprehended this program, but we will be selling dishwashers starting at $49, front load washers for $199 and 17 cubic foot refrigerators for 199 as well.

Did I mention to start early?

  1. The list of "qualifying" refrigerators is listed here:
    from the MA Save site.
    Why no Liebherr models? Why are there Tier 2 refrigerators listed there?

    A 30,000 foot overview of this program:

    Great for washers
    Unbelievable for dishwashers($250 is HUGE)
    But it is limited for larger refrigerators, which is probably the most savings of the 3

    Great program in theory. You cannot access the web site or get through on the telephone.
