We are going to be buying a refrigerator on Labor Day weekend. As a 2K + purchase I would love to get some feedback on strategies or specific deals the Deal Demons at Fat Wallet can conjure up.
I'm in Denver...in case that helps focus the discussion.
We are looking for a fridge on the modestly higher end 1.5k to 2.5k , but I'm really more focused on getting coupon stacking/reward point type feedback rather than debating the merits of 15 different models.

Lowes has a 5% off with their CC. Lowes also has one of the better deals on Extended warranties. Some may say a waste of money...but I used my last one 3 times! Unfortunately...Lowes is also going to take another week to deliver....
We just bought a new mattress. I scoped out a few stores in advance this past Sunday. One sales rep told me that the sales they were running currently had deeper discounts than what they'd be running for Labor Day weekend. For example, a mattress discounted $300 Sunday might only be discounted $50 for Labor Day weekend. Some mattresses discounted Sunday wouldn't be discounted Labor Day weekend at all.
Reason he gave is that they know many people will be shopping for deals on Labor Day weekend, therefore, no need to discount as deeply.
Possibly the same logic might apply to refrigerators and other big ticket items. If you have a few specific models in mind, note their prices now and see what their prices are Labor Day weekend. If they're higher on Labor Day weekend, then wait to see if they drop afterwards.
