I picked one up last week, took about a week to ship it to the store. It came very well packed, I had curbside pickup, since delivery was another $70. It fit in the back of a medium sized suv just fine- Equinox.

It is so quiet it is hard to tell it is even running. Great size for 2 people, or apartment/condo

BJ's has same freezer w/stainless panel for $30 cheaper as an Emerson:
https://www.bjs.com/product/emers...0001712886

By why is full price a hot deal? Wasn't this $60-70 cheaper in January? I recall because I was planning on the Insignia but got the Emerson for the BF price when they repeated the price in January. https://slickdeals.net/f/13518298-bjs-wholesale-black-friday-emerson-7-0-cu-ft-stainless-steel-upright-freezer-for-179-99?v=1&src=SiteSearch

But a *hot* deal was getting an open box at 50% off like they did in March.

That seems pretty nice. I was unaware they made vertical freezers this size. I would prefer this over my chest freezer of the same size as things tend to get harder to get to/buried. I did get a deal on chest freezer though (thanks SD!) years ago.

Freezers are very hard to come by right now in many parts of the country, most of them got bought up in February and March. Many upright and chest freezers are backordered until September at the big retailers.

It isn't January anymore, and freezers have been VERY hard to come by since March. So it being in stock is a hot deal to me.

We ordered a freezer from HD several months ago, it was listed as in stock and available for delivery. First delivery day, got a call not from HD but the manufacturer saying it would be a month later. Given the pandemic we thought it understandable. Now the next month came and went, no call. I reached out to them, they said oh just a bit longer-- September!

This post prompted me to check BB. I ended up buying from them the next size up from this model, free delivery and was eligible for rewards certificate. We already got the call and are confirmed for delivery tomorrow, thank you so much!!

At a minimum saved us 3 more months of waiting.

PS sharing for benefit of others: HD charged us in full even though obviously nothing ever shipped. My first experience trying to buy an appliance from them, obviously many hassles and nothing to show for it...

You are absolutely right. Blasted COVID food hoarders. Any bloody freezer you can get your hands on is a hot deal right now! I spent weeks trying to find a freezer in March to no avail. My old freezer was dying, so I was making freezer apocalypse plan B, C and D. Considered getting a commercial freezer since the restaurant suppliers had plenty of inventory. Looked for a meat processor that would rent freezer space (no go). Considered calling friends to beg them for freezer space. Ended up replacing my refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen and putting the old unit into my garage temporarily as a contingency freezer. Finally, I was able to get a replacement freezer this month from Sears.

Be careful with this freezer from BB, I ordered one picked it up at the store, got it home, opened the box and the bottom of the frame was badly bent, it wouldn't stand up straight. Box looked fine. Returned to store ordered another, opened the second at curbside when it arrived and it was dented in the same spot on the other side of the freezer. BB store manager said many have been getting returned as they were either clamped wrong or dropped in shipping, my suggestion would be check it at the store or before accepting delivery if you get one!

Freezer is $190 at BJ's through 7/22 if you can find a store with stock. OOS online already.
