Labor Day may be over, but that doesn’t mean all the good sales are finished. In fact, Labor Day marks the beginning of the end of the summer season, and there are plenty of bargains to be had right now—if you know what to look for. Here are some of the best purchases to make during the fall months.
During the autumn, new models of appliances are released. That means that stores need to unload their current appliances to make room for new inventory. This is also a great time to shop around for scratched and dented items. Many of these appliances work fine, but have cosmetic issues. You can get great deals on appliances if you are willing to overlook dings and scrapes.
This fall appliances will also get another boost. The success of Cash for Clunkers is being tried out in the realm of appliances. Rebates of up to $200 will be available if you buy an Energy Star appliance this fall. Consumer Reports offers this on getting your rebate, and getting rid of your old appliances:
"Unlike Cash for Clunkers, you won't have to turn in your old appliance to get a rebate. But states are expected to have recycling plans for the flood of old appliances the program could unleash. And while the money is coming from Washington, how much you get for which appliance will be a state-by-state decision."
You can find out more about this program at the Department of Energy site.
