Need to buy a washer and dryer- Should I wait 'til Labor Day?

Thread Details

I need to buy a 4.5 cu top-loading high efficiency washer and a gas dryer. I found an LG pair at Bestbuy for about 1400 delivered including their current 15% off if you both both washer and dryer. I have heard that I should wait until labor day as sales on washers and dryers are usually very good then... We could really use the washer now, but could wait if the deals will be that much better... From anyone with experience, should we expect them to be? Thanks!

I am in the same boat. I just moved and if I wait until Labor day I am without any laundry until then. Also, I will be traveling out of town the holiday weekend too so if they won't take a phone order I would be out of luck.

There doesn't seem to be any good deals at this point at least on items that are rated high on Consumer Reports.

I did see this thread already but the reviews on consumer reports are not good for this model. I am apprehensive with these. Thanks though!

I am in same boat . Do anyone have general idea on which of the two stores ( Lowes / HD ) would have better deals during labor day. I have lots on points on my CITI card and want to order a gift card to buy washer/dryer

Not sure about Labor Day, but Black Friday is generally the single best day of the year to buy appliances. Avoid Friends and Family sales - these are mostly scam sales (ex. Sears) where they simply raise prices and then give you the F&F discount.

The smartest way to shop is to simply pick the appliances you want today and track the prices yourself over time - price research well before Labor Day. Don't just buy the appliances that have the biggest discount. If you know ahead of time what you want to buy, you can sit on it until you know you've hit the right discount.

So...any exciting deals? I haven't seen too much in the Hot Deals forum. Personally shopping at the low end for washer and electric dryer. Everywhere seems to have a washer or dryer for about $300-340 each.
