My new fridge was a better bargain than I even realized

When we bought our fridge a few weeks ago it was on sale. The sale price was $1,100 off the regular price. We were quite pleased with the price. Late last week my husband said he saw a Lowe's commercial indicating appliances were on sale 10% or 20$% off. Well, that got me thinking gee if we had waited we would have gotten a better deal. I went to Lowe's website and guess what I found. They put the fridge back up to the original price and then gave a percentage off. What their sale price was in no way the good price we got it for. So for once our luck held! Now I really feel like we got a good deal. Photo: pixabay.com/en/four-leaf-clover-clover-luck-lucky-152047/

Stores always try different tactics to see which one brings better results.

LOL, yes - I'm not Irish but my husband is 1/4 Irish so that counts.

I'm just waiting for the fridge that came with the house to finally give out so that we can buy a new one. It's still working, but it's pretty small. I have the one I want... all picked out!! :)

I loved mine when I saw it in a different store but had no intentions of buying one...so to find the exact one on sale was a dream!

New fridges are always great. Especially if they have ice makers on them!

I wouldn't buy one w/o ice maker. Our previous fridge only did cubed ice...this one is more what I like crushed or cubes.

There is nothing more annoying than buying a large item and seeing it on sale cheaper shortly afterwards, so it makes a nice change to be on the winning side.
