Home Depot vs Sears Black Friday Appliance Deals

 

Black Friday Appliance Deals - Pricing Showdown 

Despite the recent phenomenon of “Christmas Creep” the 4th Friday of November is still one of the most important days of the year retailers in the US. If you are looking to get a head-start on your holiday shopping, Black Friday remains a fantastic option, as retailers across the board vie with each other in slashing prices and offering rebates. Let us see how two giants in the business fare when pitted against each other in this edition of the 2016 Black Friday deals comparison.

The Contenders

These two heavyweights need no introduction since they both rank in top 5 department store chains in the US. So we will save that space and fill it with more info on the best Black Friday Appliance Deals from both these brands. For the record, we are pitting home improvement super-brand Home Depot against a more dedicated department store giant in the form of Sears. Like any other retail business worth its salt in the US, both retailers have introduced great deals on all kinds of products sold in their online stores.

Appliance Deals: The Numbers

40% seems to be the magic number for both contenders this time of the year. That is the number splashed across their online appliance stores, with both offering exclusive Black Friday discounts of up to 40% on all appliances like refrigerators, washers, dryers and kitchen appliances.

Refrigerator Deals

Depending upon your requirements, the capacity and type of refrigerator will vary from person to person. There are great deals on different kinds of refrigerators at both Sears and Home Depot. They include:

Samsung french door refrigerator model RF28HMEDBSR/AA
Sears:

One of the most fantastic deals is the 28 cu ft. Samsung french door refrigerator model RF28HMEDBSR/AA. From an original mark-up of $3299, the price has come down to a scarcely believable $1899. That means this deal will net you savings to the tune of $1400! The Kenmore 70413, another similar capacity french door refrigerator, is selling at a discount of a $1000. It could be yours for a retail price of just under a grand, at $999.

Another Kenmore model, a smaller 24 cu ft. bottom freezer design also has a $1000 discount. This is the Elite 79043 model with a retail price of $1099.99. If you are looking for something in the more affordable sub $500 bracket, the magnitude of savings will obviously come down a few notches. The Kenmore 60302, a 15 cu ft. top freezer model is retailing at $479, down by $90 from the original $569.

Home Depot:

The 24 cu ft. Whirlpool french door refrigerator model WRX735SDBM is the top deal over at Home Depot. With a discounted price of $1298, this deal will net you $900 worth of savings. LG also has a similar option in the same price bracket, the 20 cu ft. LFC21776ST.

This is a french door model with a Black Friday special price of $1198. Buy that, and you are looking at a great refrigerator being sold at a discount of a thousand bucks.

In the sub-$1000 segment, Frigidaire has a $548 top freezer refrigerator, the FFTR2021QS, which offers savings to the tune of $280. At the very low end of the budget pyramid, the Magic Chef model MCBM920S1 could be yours at just $298. This decently sized 23 cu ft. bottom freezer is one of the cheapest in the deals section and will save a hundred bucks at that price.

Washers

From the mainly traditional top load models to the bigger more efficient front load options, the market for appliances is pretty saturated with products of various makes and specifications.

The Samsung front-loader with a $400 discount catches the eye at the Home Depot store. The WF45K6200AW being a high efficiency 4.5 cu ft. washer, is currently labeled at $599. A smaller Whirlpool top-loader, the 4.3 cu ft. WTW5000DW is going quite cheap at $399. With an original $599 price, you are looking at a couple of hundred bucks in money saved. LG also has a couple of decent buys here, in the sub $1000 and $500 segments, with the WM3270CW, a front loader offering savings of $ 300 on current prices, at $599.

Kitchen Appliances

There are great deals on cooking ranges and microwaves on both stores. Here are a few deals that caught the eye:

Sears:

The Kenmore 74233 Freestanding gas range has to be one of the buys of the season, at $599. That is a discount of over $600 right there for a 5 cu ft convection based range. There are several other deals on Kenmore electric and gas ranges, all well worth a look just for the hundreds of dollars of discount on offer. If you wanted a great wall oven at a reasonable price, the KitchenAid KOCE500ESS combination oven might be worth a look, with $800 discount. It is currently retailing at $2896.79.

Home Depot Black Friday gas Range

Home Depot:

They also have some great Black Friday Appliance deals on kitchen appliances. Among the cooking ranges, the Samsung slide-in gas range model NX58H9500WS, is a great buy at $1398. With the original mark-up somewhere north of $2400, this deal will save you well over one grand! Samsung and LG models dominate the deals section over here. On the microwave section, the scene is entirely dominated by sub-$500 models, from LG, Whirlpool, and Samsung. KitchenAid has a $800 oven selling at $448, the KMHC319ESS, that stands out from the rest purely because it is closer to $500 at retail.

Conclusion

This is a classic Black Friday Appliance Deals scenario. It is one of the busiest shopping seasons of the year and retailers are all jostling for your attention. And they are all evenly matched when it comes to discounts and deals. An individual product you want may have a better deal at one place. So it is up to you to figure out which place to buy from. Nobody comes out on top except you, the consumer. If you have a particular model or make in mind, check it out on either of these sites (and a few others as well, just to be safe!) to get the best deal possible. Happy Shopping!
