More than 50% off Black Friday Appliance Deals this year.
Though it’s not top-of-mind, Black Friday has become one of the best times of year to buy major appliances, with dozens of items advertised at 40% off or more, including several washer/dryer sets and complete kitchen deals (fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave). In fact, more than 13 big-box stores offered big ticket discounting from last year tallied more than 1,100 Black Friday Appliance Deals, with 200 refrigerator deals, 200 washer deals, 180 dryer deals, 150 stoves/ranges and 110 dishwashers on sale.

Sears has been the front-runner for offering the best appliance deals the last few years (nearly 400 in 2014), and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by other big retailers like Home Depot, Lowe’s, Best Buy and hhgregg. This year, Black Friday shoppers can expect stiff competition with heavy appliance discounting up to 60% off outlet and quality name brand models. They’ll top savings on the best washer/dryer sets from last year by $200, with front-loading sets at $700. Stainless steel refrigerators can be had for less than $500, which is below last year’s gem of a deal from Lowe’s for $598, and gas ranges for less than $250 (Kmart had lowest price in 2014 at $289). Other predictions for appliance deals on Black Friday include:
Stainless steel refrigerators for less than $500
Front-load washer/dryer sets for less than $700
60% off name brand appliances
Gas ranges for less than $250
Complete kitchen sets for less than $1,500
Of all the huge savings offered on major appliances during Black Friday sales, perhaps none are bigger than the ones we see on high-end refrigerators and complete kitchen sets, where savings can be $2,000 or more. They were very popular with FatWallet members who also earned significant rewards on these super big-ticket purchases with cash back from more than 80 home stores. Expect even more Black Friday deals like these this year.
