Learning About The Latest Appliance Sales

About six months ago I realized that we needed to do something to renovate our kitchen. It was old, outdated, and a little non-functional. I didn't know what to do to improve things, but a friend of mine mentioned that it might be smart to go through and replace the appliances. We started going shopping, and I realized that we needed to figure out where to get a great deal. We started combing through sales, and I actually got pretty good at snagging bargains. This blog is all about learning more about the latest appliance so that you can renovate on a dime.

The Benefits and Drawbacks of Buying Scratch-and-Dent Appliances for Your Home

by Karl Jacobs

Looking to purchase scratch-and-dent appliances for your home?

As the name suggests, scratch-and-dent deals involve buying appliances that may have been slightly scratched or dented during transit from the factory to the retail store or at the store itself. The damage to the appliances is usually superficial and does not affect the working condition of the appliances. 

Buying scratch-and-dent appliances has its benefits and drawbacks, which you should know to increase your buying confidence. 

Benefits of Buying Scratch-and-Dent Appliances

Buying home scratch-and-dent appliances offers a host of benefits. Some of those benefits are highlighted below.

  • You Can Save Money On Your Appliance Purchases: Scratch-and-dent deals can significantly lower the retail price of the home appliances that you wish to buy, allowing you to save lots of dollars on your appliance purchases. With such unbeatable savings, you can get upgraded appliances at the price of basic models. 
  • You Get Appliances That Work Perfectly: The damage to the scratch-and-dent appliances is merely cosmetic and does not extend to their internal components. These appliances still work as efficiently as any other new and unused inventory at the store, so you don't have to worry about buying a lemon.

Like any cost-saving strategy in appliance purchase, scratch-and-dent deals have their disadvantages. 

Drawbacks of Buying Scratch-and-Dent Appliances

Although scratch-and-dent appliances come straight from the manufacturer, they do not offer all of the advantages that unscratched and undented inventory offer. Some common disadvantages of buying these appliances are highlighted below.

  • Your Appliances Will Have Some Cosmetic Damage: When considering scratch-and-dent deals ask yourself: do you mind seeing a few minor scratches, dents, or dings on your brand-new appliances? If not, then scratch-and-dent appliances may not be the right choice for you.
  • You May Be Responsible For Removing And Installing Your Appliances: Many appliance retail stores do not offer installation with the purchase of scratch-and-dent appliances, as well as the removal of the old appliances. If you're not experienced in appliance removal and installation, you may be forced to seek out an independent contractor to do it for you.

Ready to snatch up steep discounts off the retail price of new, major household appliances? Buying scratch-and-dent appliances can be a great way to get what you want for a steal.
