Labor Day Appliance Deals 2021

Should You Buy New Appliances on Labor Day?

Shopping Labor Day appliance sales is a smart move. You may find somewhat less competition from other shoppers, but you’ll also discover loads of Labor Day appliance deals with aggressive discounts. Appliance sales during Labor Day 2021 in particular are highly attractive. Manufacturers and merchants ramped up production lines and inventories, respectively, to meet the surprisingly high demand for anything to improve the home started in mid-2020. Given that you’ll always do best by starting with a strategy to buy the best appliance or appliances to match or exceed your needs while staying within your budget, you have loads of attractive choices this year. Consider the following factors whenever you shop for appliances for your home so you’ll make the best purchases. Happy deal hunting!

  • How Do You Use Your Current Appliances?: It can be a great thrill to walk into your newly upgraded kitchen full of all new appliances, but are they really a match for how you will use them? Here are two very opposite types of mistakes you don’t want to make: Underbuying individual appliances or purchasing a complete set and paying too much and blowing your budget on one or more appliances with features you’ll never use. If you’re an enthusiastic cook, whether you cook for yourself, for your family, or for crowds of friends, chances are you use all the features and capabilities of your range and oven. So if you buy down so your oven will have the same brand’s nameplate as your dishwasher and refrigerator, for example, you may find you’ve shorted yourself when you want to try new cooking techniques that exceed the capabilities of your new range. On the other hand, if you dip into your child’s college funds to pay for matching multi-door refrigerators and freezers but mostly what you prepare are frozen pizzas and warmed-up take-out leftovers, that’s like buying a Formula One car to take your kid to wait in the drop-off line. Size is a consideration with appliances, too. If you like to prepare meals or dishes for the week ahead and can’t fit the pre-cooked food in your fridge or freezer, that’s going to hurt, especially if you work on a tight weekly schedule and end up having to fit in another marathon cooking session. On the other hand, if you buy a 28-cubic-foot capacity refrigerator/freezer but all you have on hand are a bag of unground coffee beans and a half package of Klondike Bars, everyone will wonder, “Why?”
  • In  What Order of Priority Do You Need to Buy Replacements or New Appliances?: Picture this: You’ve paid to repair your failing clothes washing machine or refrigerator multiple times. You head online to finally buy the washer or the fridge you need and then you notice an extraordinary deal on a dual-fuel standalone range/oven combination in a snazzy European color from a coveted brand. You go for the glamour and excitement and the next day your washing machine floods two floors in your home or your refrigerator dies, with melted Klondike Bars everywhere (just kidding). Unless money is no object, stick to your priorities.
  • Will Your New Appliances Fit In?: “Fitting in” in this case has many meanings. If your appliances will replace older units, will the new models physically fit in the space between cabinets, walls, and other appliances? If the sizes are OK, what about color? Stainless steel, black, and white appliances are usually pretty close in color and finish between brands, but there’s often a noticeable difference. If you want all red appliances or another primary color or special finish, your chances of visual harmony in the kitchen diminish quickly.
  • Should You Buy All Appliances From One Brand?: There’s of course no rule that any two appliances in your home need to be the same brand. Matching washer and dryer sets are most common, especially when both are purchased at the same time. Manufacturers and retailers often have special package prices for multiple appliances purchased together. One common exception to the practice of same-brand unity in a kitchen is the dishwasher. I frankly don’t know why it’s the case, but my observation is that if one appliance will be a different brand, that appliance is most often the dishwasher. Overall, though, other than potential package savings and color and style matches, there’s no compelling reason to buy all appliances from one brand. If you do buy an appliance based on the best Labor Day appliance deal and you use the same strategy to outfit your home with all new appliances during the year, just tell anyone who asks that you are a discerning shopper who prefers to purchase based on suitability for the function, not just for color-matching.
