Savings Tip: Buy Kitchen Appliances Online

By Kennedi Rose / January 24, 2013

Here’s a weird-but-true savings tip if you’re buying kitchen appliances: shop online.

It may sound crazy, but you can buy heavy kitchen appliances online. I found a refrigerator on eBay that was being sold by a man who lived only 30 miles from me. I bought it and picked it up, in person, the next night. buy kitchen appliances online

My purchase was protected by Buyer Protection for 7 days, in case the appliance turned out to be a lemon. (Be wary of buying appliances from Craigslist, where there is zero buyer protection).

Some online sales will require ?in-person pickup only,? for obvious reasons. But some professional online appliance sellers will ship the appliance to you. Calculate how low your overall savings will be, once you factor for the cost of shipping.

Also, understand the online seller?s return policy. What happens if the product ends up being defective or in need of repair? If you have to pay to ship it back, it might not be worth the risk.
