Where is the best place to buy appliances? We will need all 5 appliances so we don't want to spend too much.

Thanks.

Try one of those 'Home Shows' that go on at the International Centre or National Trade Centre or wherever. There should be a couple happening before your closing date, usually sometime in the spring and fall.

These shows have lots of retailers and manufacturers with product on display that you can get prices for. Then you can have them compete for your business and beat each others best prices.

We went to a few retailers before the last show just for an idea on pricing so we could set our budget accordingly. Then we went to the ‘Home Show’ and were able to price higher end models for over $1000.00 less!!!

Most retailers will only allow you to pre-order your appliances with a deposit up to eight months in advance, so it may be a little early for you seeing as how you’re closing July 2007.

However, you might want to check out manufacturers websites and write down model numbers of the appliances you’re interested in. That way you’ll be comparing apples to apples when you go to get prices.

You could also ask your builder for some contact info for the company they deal with (if any) as they will usually give you a good price.

Your next option would be a retailer in your area. Check out Appliance Canada, Bad Boy, Tasco Distributors, The Brick, Future Shop, Sears, etc… the list goes on and on.

Keep in mind that different places offer different levels of customer service, which may be worked into the price.

We haven’t purchased our appliances yet, but when we do, we will most likely take the lowest price quote we get from the next ‘Home Show’ to Sears and get them to match it, which I’m told they will do.

That way we’ll get the price and the service!

Anyway, best of luck with it.

Mike

to get a bigger discount at Sears (which will indeed match your best price - try Ian at the Dundas/403 store); you can buy sears gift cards at up to 20% off face value on www.redflagdeals.com
