We buy in bulk when it's on sale. We have 2 full size fridges in the garage and in the kitchen both freezers in the garage are full, You could fill one of these up fast if you buy in bulk.

Is this a good deal? 21% off is not really enough for me to bite it but we've been thinking about getting one for a while. Is this particular model any good?

7 cuft is small. Think like 1/3 a normal fridge.

This would probably work fine if you aren't going to be buying in bulk like I do and just need a little extra freezer space. I like the upright better because you have shelves and it makes it much easier to get to stuff but they start at a lot higher price.

Not really. I've seen the ~7 cu ft. chest freezers in the $135 range on sale. I just bought a Haier 7.1 for $125 on sale (it was Sams Club), with 3 extended year warranty it was $150. So you can do better.

I would not agree so much.

I've got a side of beef coming in a week and I don't think it will fit in the space I have, so I've been casually looking for a small freezer for the past month. Deals on freezers just don't come along very often.

I've never seen the 7cft Haier at Sams at the price you say you got it for and if it really was the 7.1 and not the 5, why didn't you post it?

If you do a search on Slickdeals, about the only freezer posts in the past year have been the 5cuft for $135-$150($27-$30/cft), the 7cft for about $160($21/cft), 10cuft for $200($20/cft) and some much larger uprights for like $25-$30/cft

If Magic Chef is decent quality( not too noisy etc), then I'd say get it. It's about as good as it gets.

Edit: Found it! Sort of. The Haier was $139.99 at Sam's back in March. That was a real good deal. But I wouldn't wait for that to happen again... any time soon.

While looking around a bit I've found the best price on a 3.5cft that I've seen recently. $100( so $29/cft). Not bad if you just need a little more room.

I bought a generator just for this reason. I had the power go out for 12 hours a couple years back...eveyrthing was ok in there (we didn't open it) but after that..i said screw this..im not losing $100's worth of food.

Even a set of charged deep cycle batteries (and an inverter) would buy you some time. They don't consume much power at all/

Good idea, that generator would pay for itself if it keeps you from losing a freezer full of meat.

I don't have a garage but have a terrace, do you think it is ok to keep a freezer out in the heat and cold like that ?

my response would have been "not if it will ever get wet or sit in the sun" but after reading the manual, definitely not:

"Locate the freezer away from direct sunlight and sources of heat (stove, heater, radiator, etc.). Direct sunlight may affect the acrylic coating and heat sources may increase electrical consumption. Ambient temperature below 50°F or above 85°F will hinder the performance of this appliance. This unit is not designed for use in a garage or any other outside installation."

you wont have much luck running a fridge or deep freezer on a reasonably sized battery bank for a useful amount of time. the compressor's duty load will drain the batteries too quickly.

I would have to disagree. I've been in the market for a new freezer for 3-4 months now. mine went out and needed to replace. This is the lowest I have seen it for this size. I have checked numerous places, periodically checked and this is by far the cheapest that I have seen.... That being said, I picked mine up today. Thanks for sharing!!
