What months are the best time to buy the following: refrigerator, washer & dryer, mattress, furniture, T.V?

My fiance and I are moving into a new house on Cape Cod at the end of December. We are going to be putting all of our money into our mortgage, never mind planning the wedding, so we need super good deals. I remember reading an article on some website (can’t remember or I wouldn’t be writing this) informing the consumer of the best time of the year to buy certain appliances. Can anyone give advice on the question at hand or/and direct me to where I may be able to get an answer.

    In the U.S.A. sales do vary by region and local ‘festivals, etc’ That aside, I am from Chicago area and the best time to buy appliances and furniture is during federal holidays. For example Labor Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July. Other days for deals include day after Thanksgiving, the week after Christmas and New Year’s Day. These are generally days retailers expect sales from shopping to be lower (due to smaller number of shoppers). If your credit is good pay particular attention to 10% (or more) deals off of either one item or the entire purchase if you open a store credit card, not to mention the 12 months or more of interest free for the purchase. This coupled with the lower prices and other incentives (free delivery, etc.) will make the hassle of having an extra credit card worth it. Just make sure to pay the credit card off by the program ending date and then cancel the credit card. If the store you look at is small and doesn’t offer many incentives, talk to them. They may just lower the price to make a sale and earn your (future) business. This is very typical for small mom and pop stores that sell appliances. If the area you live in doesn’t have a Sears type chain store, you may want to consider traveling to an area that does have stores like that. Where there are many stores competition can be a great thing for consumers. Of course, check out Consumer Reports for any reviews on appliances. They can alert you to inexpensive applicances that perform better than expensive ones.

    Good luck!
