Whether you live in a city high-rise or a quiet suburban home, keeping these few tips in mind when shopping for home and kitchen appliances in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania will help you avoid breaking your budget and get the most value for your dollar!
Check for mail in and instant rebates. Many manufacturers, retailers, and state governments are offering rebates to entice customers into purchasing specific appliances. Appliance brands such as JennAir, GE, GE Monogram, and Thermador are offering attractive rebates that can save you thousands on a kitchen appliance package. Some are even offering free dishwashers with purchase of select appliances! State governments, for instance NJ, are offering mail in and instant rebates that can total up to $200. For especially keen savings, look for an appliance retailer that offers exclusive mail in rebates.
Look for package pricing. Many appliance stores, including Karl’s in New Jersey, offer special pricing when purchasing two or more appliances. Coupled with instant and mail in rebates this can add up to big savings of home appliances! Make sure you ask for package pricing if you think it may apply to your purchase…or maybe now is time to upgrade that other old appliance in your home too.
Sales taxes are ever increasing with some areas in the country at almost 9%. Often, if you purchase from an appliance retailer outside of the state you reside in you can avoid paying sales tax which can be a great way to save hundreds. Check your states laws however, as some if not all states require you to report the purchases you did not pay sales tax on and pay when filing your state income tax return.
Choose retailer wisely. You may get a great price but if the delivery is not what you need (some retailers will just drop an item at your curb), then the savings may cost you more in the long run. Karl’s Appliance, for instance, offers inside delivery to at least a garage nationwide and white glove delivery including removal of old disconnected appliances is standard locally in New York and New Jersey.
