Dis­counted white­goods

BIG ticket white­goods like fridges and freez­ers, are items most peo­ple should only need to buy a cou­ple of times in their life.

Shop­pers seek­ing a fridge should check out the Fridges & Freez­ers sec­tion of Week­end Shop­per.

There are a mul­ti­tude of heav­ily dis­counted fridges and freez­ers here. The rea­sons they are be­ing sold are many and var­ied, in­clud­ing up­siz­ing, down­siz­ing, mov­ing over­seas or mov­ing into a fur­nished prop­erty.

Shop­pers can lit­er­ally save hun­dreds of dol­lars on a host of white­goods.

Lead­ing brands in­clud­ing Fisher & Paykel, West­ing­house, Sharp, GE, Sam­sung, and Kelv­ina­tor are all avail­able.

It’s in­ter­est­ing to note that bar fridges still com­mand a high price, new or used.

For ex­am­ple a new, small bar fridge for per­sonal use re­tails for around $200-$600.

And a used bar fridges: “170 L Kelv­ina­tor fridge in good work­ing or­der” is ad­ver­tised in Week­end Shop­per for just $140.

How­ever, large, used fridges can be bought for very rea­son­able prices. A new frost-free fridge/ freezer re­tails for about $2000, but in Week­end Shop­per the same can be pur­chased for as lit­tle as $450.

Chest freez­ers are also avail­able at heav­ily dis­counted prices. These can sell new for around the $2000 mark. The same item, just four years old, can be pur­chased for just $150 in the Shop­per.

Me­chan­i­cally minded shop­pers can also pick up bro­ken white­goods for free: “Give­away small up­right freezer, mo­tor needs at­ten­tion. Good ex­te­rior.”

In some in­stances shop­pers are will­ing to swap white­goods: “ LG Ice Maker 610 litre fridge 2yr, swap for a 400 litre plus wash­ing ma­chine. $0.”

In ad­di­tion to fridges and freez­ers, shop­pers can some­times pick up wine cab­i­nets and cool­ers, both new and used. Be­fore spend­ing top dol­lar on a re­place­ment fridge, flick through these pages to dis­cover lots of cool dis­counts.
