Our current fridge was tucked away snugly in it's own little cave which made it a challenge to find a fridge with the proper dimensions created in this decade.
It didn't take long to find it...there it was the exact same fridge with a scratch in the side for 999.00. Perfect shmerfect, "We'll take it!"
The fit is perfect, there is no rust inside, it doesn't require more candles in it's Birthday cake than I do and the ice cream I just ate wasn't soupy!
I tried to capture the scratch that afforded us this screamin' deal...no little scratch scares us!
Wait there is more...on the cusp of Henry's budding hunting career he has been hinting at the desire for an extra freezer for his future catch. Heck no, we are not putting our former energy sucking fridge with a teeny tiny freezer in the basement! Instead we snagged this brand new baby freezer for the basement.
Initial Fridge that made me flutter with excitement: 1199.00
Identical Fridge with a wee scratch: 999.00
Mini Chest Freezer: 200.00
Total: 1244.00, the price of the initial fridge + delivery
Excitement Discount (yes, I get that excited): -30.00
Delivery Discount I finagled: -6.00
Power Company Rebate for Old Fridge: -50.00
Energy Rebate: -25.00
Final Price: $1133.00
Who's jaw is on the ground? Fridge + freezer + delivery + haul away of our old fridge for 66.00 less than the initial fridge! Let your local appliance store know that you want a scratch in your appliance.
P.S. Initially, I wasn't crazy about a bottom drawer freezer. That is until I got the facts: On average we spend 80% of our time in the fridge and 20% of our time getting out the ice cream!
P.S.S. Henry did some online research and fixed our oven back to new! My hero!
