Lingering Labor Day Sales Bring Big Discounts on Home Appliances


Nothing is more disruptive than realizing that a major home appliance is no longer working properly; after all, no one wants to have to hand wash a bunch of dishes because the machine did a terrible job of cleaning them. This week's roundup is dedicated to helping you replace all the outdated appliances in your home, from washing machines to the refrigerator.

  1. Kenmore refrigeratorKenmore 18.2-Cu. Ft. Top-Freezer Refrigerator

    Is It Worth It?: Part of a broader Labor Day sale in which Kenmore appliances are available at prices up to 30% off, this roomy refrigerator is the perfect fit for a modern kitchen. While you're at it, consider getting a dishwasher or oven from America's favorite home appliance brand, too.

    Price: $287.99 in-cart with free shipping

    Is It Worth It?: Stop waiting four minutes to re-heat a mug of coffee from cold to tepid. Major appliances are also available for a steal at Best Buy during its Labor Day Event, which cuts up to 50% off. That drops the price on this 1,000-watt microwave with a 4-speed fan, removable filter, and glass turntable to only $287.99. In addition to the microwave, shop the nearest location or browse online to find the best prices on other appliances to make your morning routine more efficient.

    Is It Worth It?: Summer is nearly over, but if you skip this deal and wait until next year to buy a new air conditioner, the price won't be nearly this good. This air conditioner features a 2-speed fan, slide-out filter, and is suitable for rooms from 100 to 150 square feet. It also comes with an EZ-mount window installation kit.

  4. Roper washerRoper 3.4-Cubic Foot Top-Load Washer

    Is It Worth It?: If you've been without an air conditioner, your washer has been working overtime to keep you in funk-free clothing. Replace it with one that features spin speeds of up to 700 rpm, a cycle status bar, three water temperatures, and nine wash cycle options. And its capacity translates to fewer loads. Paired with a new Roper 6.5-Cubic Foot Electric Dryer ($274 with the same coupon and free shipping), the time and money saved on laundry can be used shopping for new clothes.

Moreover, the unique shape can focus the temperature on a particular area of the room.
