You probably know that certain things are cheaper at certain times. Whether you’re buying airfare, dining out, or shopping online, there is often a “best time to buy“. A bit of planning can save you a ton of money when it comes to buying throughout the year. “Benjamin Franklin once said, “Necessity never made a good bargain.” It was true back in Ben’s time and it’s still true today.
Consider what happens when you decide at the last-minute to take a vacation to the beach. When you go online to book it, ticket prices are astronomical. Yet, had you planned your trip out over the last 6 months, you would have had plenty of time to find a good deal.
The same is true when it comes to buying a large appliance. If you plan ahead, you’ll have plenty of time to find a good deal before you desperately need the appliance. This is because there are certain times of year that are best for purchasing washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, stoves/ranges, and the like.
But when is the right time of year to buy? And what should you do if you need a new appliance immediately?

This means that last year’s models get discounted during the spring. Same goes with mattresses. For more information on what to purchase when click here.
