Tips for financing your new appliance

Take advantage of store credit.

Some retailers offer in-store or third-party financing through companies like Affirm or Afterpay, which often come with relatively low interest rates.

Use caution with credit card.

Unless your credit card has a low interest rate or you plan to pay it off with your next statement, think twice before swiping for a big appliance purchase.

Look for short-term financing.

While you’d hope your new appliance lasts for years, it could break or require repairs before then. Try to avoid long-term loans for items you might need to replace before paying them off.

Take advantage of 0% APR promos.

Some credit cards offer new customers a 0% intro APR for six months or longer. Third-party companies like Affirm are also known to extend no-interest financing to customers who qualify. You’ll want to commit to paying off your balance before your intro expires.

Ask about deferred payments.

Some retailers like Lowe's and Home Depot offer periodic deals that let you purchase an appliance while delaying your first payment. These offers often include 0% interest for a specified time. The catch: You must pay on time and in full within that set time to avoid a high revert interest rate.

Work appliances in to home renovation financing.

If you’re considering financing a home renovation project, include the costs of new appliances when creating your budget.

Frequently asked questions

When is the best time to buy appliances?
September and October are some of the best times to find a deal on large appliances. It’s when most manufacturers roll out new models and stores are looking to move last year’s inventory.

Holiday weekends, including Black Friday, are also great times to shop for appliances. Otherwise, shop during the week to potentially snag a better deal.

Should I buy used appliances?
Buying used can mean big savings, but only for select appliances. Appliances that are worth buying used are usually the first to go during a home renovation project, including:

  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Gas ranges
  • Washers
  • Dryers

Buying new can be your best option for appliances like built-in refrigerators, gas cooktops, water heaters, furnaces and air-conditioners.

How do I clean a stainless steel appliance?
Try one of the many store-bought stainless steel cleaners and wipes. Or use white vinegar or dish soap to clean the appliance, then apply a small amount of olive oil or baby oil to remove streaks and add shine.

When cleaning stainless steel, do not use:

  • Steel wool or other abrasive materials.
  • Chlorine-based cleaners.
  • Oven cleaner.

    I would like very much that you give to me some very helpful information as soon as possible and with as much more details and helpful advice as possible.

    I would like to buy items such as clothes laptops books sports goods tools electricians meters faucets and more of home and work items. I would like to buy these items from USA or Canada and if they are not at all not available in US or Canada, I will settle for and accept to buy from Europe.

    I want to make all my shopping using Paypal and I want 100 % full refund covering all the money I will have paid including product costs shipping customs duties, etc. Please help me on this. I would very much like that you give me 3 or 4 or more choices of sites where I could find and buy all the products I would need. Of course if it would be possible, I would like to make all my shopping at only one site if the quality and safety and refund guarantee insurance is okay.

    Anything else that you consider helpful please inform me as soon as possible and in detail.

    Yours sincerely ,

      Hi TZN,

      Thanks for getting in touch!

      Paypal is one of the most popular and convenient ways to pay for online shopping so you can find a lot of online stores that accept Paypal not only in the US and Canada but also worldwide.

      Regarding refunds with Paypal, you can request a refund of a completed payment by sending the seller an email and request for a transaction refund. Paypal also provides valuable security options like buyer’s protection to help you with dispute resolution and fraud prevention. Kindy review
      Paypal’s refund policy as well as their service terms and conditions before using their service to see whether it’s right for you.

      I hope this helps! For any clarifications, feel free to message us again.
