Refrigerators – Best Time Of Year To Buy One

If you are looking for a new refrigerator wouldn’t you like to know when you can find one on sale? Knowing the right time to buy helps save money on that new appliance.

The best time of year to get the top deal on a new refrigerator is the spring. This is when most manufactures change models. So the stores will have a lot of closeouts before the new models arrive.


The EPA updated the requirements for the Energy Star rating on new refrigerators and most refrigerators do not meet the new standard. That means you will see about 45% off the current models being replaced by August. The first of the new appliance models will be available in April, so start looking for deals in early April. This could prove to be a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Swapping out your old refrigerator with a new E-Star model will also save you a lot of money every month.
