Outdated appliances are an eyesore and, between the energy inefficiency and the repairs, they can hurt you in the wallet as well. Buying a new dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, or washing machine is a pretty big investment too. The team at Groupon Coupons has discovered some critical tips to saving big on major, small, and seasonal appliance purchases.

Timing is vital when making your next appliance purchase. We did the research and here’s when we think you should buy.
Keep an Eye Out For New Model Releases: When a brand releases new models, the older models almost always go on a heavy discount to get rid of the inventory.
Buy Out of Season: Air conditioners, heaters, boilers, and grills are perfect examples of out-of-season savings. If you buy a new gas grill during colder months, you’re more likely to find great deals and discounts on them. But once the temperature goes up, so will the prices.
Shop Small Appliances at the End of the Year: The best time to buy small appliances like microwaves and toasters is at the end of the year. Typically stores try to eliminate excess inventory left over from throughout the year during big Black Friday and end-of-year sales.
Purchase Brand New Items During the Big Holiday Sales: If you’re planning on buying the newest model of any home appliance, you have to shop during the major sales holidays. We’re talking about the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc.
Appliance Offers & Open Box Clearance: Home Depot has a special appliance offer page so you can easily find the current appliance sales, deals, and/or discounts. When someone buys an appliance and it doesn’t fit, the color is off, or it gets delivered with a scratch or ding, that item typically ends up as an open box/clearance piece. Meaning you could score a brand-new refrigerator at a big discount.
Keep Up With Your Appliances: When you notice an appliance’s performance beginning to decline, you should start shopping for a new one. Nothing can break a budget like your refrigerator unexpectedly dying and taking away your time to search for a new one.
