Over the years of being a homeowner, I have researched, shopped for and bought many kitchen appliances. When you’re in the market for a major purchase such as a refrigerator, it’s important to have a wide variety of brands and styles to research to make sure you’re getting what you want. Big home improvement and hardware stores like Lowes are perfect places to research for a new refrigerator, and they often have appliance sales to make it an even smarter purchase.
Here are some of the best deals right now on Lowes refrigerators.
Lowes is currently selling 635 refrigerators. It has a wide range of styles, including French-door, top-freezer, bottom-freezer, side-by-side, four door and counter-depth. It sells eight major brands —Frigidaire, LG, Whirlpool, Samsung, Kitchen-Aid, GE, Electrolux and Maytag. You can find pretty much whatever you are looking for in the store or online. Sometimes it is best to research a few styles and brands online and then go in and look to see what you like the best. Then you can order it in the store, or wait to order online later to take advantage of a sale.
A super fall sale on appliances
Lowes is running a great appliance sale until Oct. 15. If you buy a major appliance over $399 you will get 10 percent off and free next-day local delivery and haul away. Ten percent off can really add up, depending on the price of the refrigerator. Also, if you use a Lowes credit card you will get another 5 percent off your total, adding up to even more savings for you.
With all those choices, options, and brands where do you start with refrigerator shopping?
The first thing you should do is figure out how much room you have for a refrigerator. You need to measure the height, the width and depth of the space that you have for it. Then think about how much food will you need to store.
Do you have a large family? Just a spouse? Just you?
Then you can think about the different styles that work best with your kitchen and needs. Do you like the side-by-side style? Would a bottom-freezer be easier? After all of that check the other perks such as the drawer layout, shelves, ice-maker options, temperature control, energy star, etc… Once you have figured out your preferences then it is time to find the best refrigerator for the best price.

“I am in love with my Samsung refrigerator. Samsung makes quality products and this refrigerator is no exception.” —aegifford, Reviewer since 2009
“Of all the appliances I own, this is my favorite – and gets me the most positive feedback. It is a thing of beauty. The gorgeous stainless steel finish fits perfectly in with the rest of my kitchen decor and really makes it stand out. It looks high quality, modern and eye catching. The stainless steel does attract a lot of finger prints, but it is very easy to clean. The storage is spacious and well organized. Perfect for large families. The ice maker gets a lot of use, especially by my children. The side by side design does require you to have a large kitchen space. There is very little noise level, to the point where I don’t even hear it running. I have only had this refrigerator for 3 months, but so far it is been very durable. I have not encountered any problems. It appears to be very well made. Samsung is a high quality brand, and though expensive, I feel this was worth it in every way.” —mw10, Reviewer since 2010
