Anyone know why the big increase of the price of Samsung appliances?

216 22 September 24, 2017 at 02:21 PM
I've been watching the price of Samsung appliances since May. I would check every couple of weeks. Looking to get a fridge, stove and microwave. Those 3 had been running around $3800 to $4000 depending on the store. Finally had the money last week and went to see which store currently had the best price and now everyone is around $4800 or more for those 3 appliances. Does anyone know why there would be such a large increase? I've also been looking at LG and they haven't had a big increase recently.

Appliance prices are always all over the place. There are always lots of deals in Spring through Summer but they do taper off after that.

On a side note be careful with Samsung appliances. When they break, and they will, good luck getting service!

I'm hoping it is temporary. Giving it until BF and see what happens. I've read the same service complaint on all the appliances I've researched. I think the big issue is there are so many circuit boards in everything. That seems to be what always breaks. Used to be pumps, compressors and relays, now it is circuit boards frying.

Make sure you don't have an appliance that catches fire. I think they had a washing machine and a fridge that had this problem. Apparently everything they make is combustible.

check to see if there is a sears outlet near you. always good discounted items for dented or dinged appliances. esp if it just sits in the garage.

I second sears, and check your warranty from wherever you purchase carefully, every supplier is different, especially the fine print. However, I don't go far from Sears anymore, learned my lesson ttwice, Best Buy and Home Depot, never again. Sears, especially since they are trying hard to stay in business, is great with customer retention, oh and use a good credit card for backup protection. Good luck!
