Shopping for a Major Appliance
Is the Floor Model of a Major Appliance a Good Choice?
Shopping for a major appliance can be a major event. Most consumers get a little queasy when they think about how much a new major appliance is going to cost them. There are some tips to keep in mind when shopping for a major appliance. Below you’ll find out whether or not you should buy the floor model of a major appliance.
Get The Floor Model
In most case there really isn’t anything wrong with the floor model of a major appliance. Stores need to have floor models so customers can preview merchandise before buying it. Many stores will offer a discount to customers who purchase the floor model. In many cases the discount is 10%. But is a floor model a wise purchasing decision? The answer is that it can be. A floor model isn’t “defective” in any way. It is simply the model appliance that a store puts on display so customers can look at it when making a purchasing decision.
When you purchase the floor model of a major appliance you will still receive the same manufacturer warranty that you would normally receive had you not purchased the floor model. For an item such as a refrigerator, the light bulb in the refrigerator might wear out sooner from the many times the model is opened and closed when on display. That is a minimal consideration if you end up getting a substantial discount on the floor model. Keep in mind a floor model is not a used appliance or a returned item. It is simply the display model.
It Pays To Shop Around
When you are buying a major appliance it pays to shop around. Regardless of whether or not you buy a floor model you will want to make sure you are getting the best price and value for your money. Keep the above information in mind the next time you shop for a major appliance.
