The Best Month to Buy New Appliances

At Sam's Club, the best time to buy new appliances is whenever you need them. No need to hold out for a Labor Day sale or any other holiday to buy a new refrigerator or electric range microwave combo! Though we may have deals and sales, you can rest assured that you're getting the best appliances for the lowest prices all the time when you shop with us.

We are pleased to offer a variety of appliance categories, including freezer refrigerators, water and air treatment machines like dehumidifiers, ranges and stoves, heating and cooling appliances, dishwashers, washers<, dryers, lawn care machines and small appliances like ice makers, microwaves and coffee makers.

It's very easy to buy small appliances online, since they are typically less expensive than major appliances and don't require as much research. With Sam's Club, you'll also benefit from free shipping on many items in this category, like Keurig brewing systems and KitchenAid stand mixers.

If you're hoping to purchase something larger, like a refrigerator or washing machine, the Sam's Club website is still a great choice. The price of many such appliances already includes the cost of shipping, so you won't have to worry about hidden fees. In addition, our members-only pricing on large appliances helps you to feel confident you're getting the best possible deal.

    FAQ - Appliances

    Should I buy energy efficient appliances?

    It may be in your best interest to purchase energy-efficient appliances. Saving energy is good for the planet and can also help to cut your electric or gas bills. You can check out the energy rating of most major appliances on our website. Some items, like dishwashers or ovens, may even be Energy Star rated for their impressive efficiency. You may be eligible for certain tax incentives if you purchase energy efficient appliances, depending on your state.

    How long do appliances last?

    Major appliances should last many years if you've purchased a high-quality option. In general, microwave ovens and dishwashers can be expected to operate for 9 years. You can count on an average of 15 years for gas ranges and 13 years for laundry appliances and refrigerators.

    Does unplugging appliances save electricity?

    Unplugging appliances does save electricity. This is because appliances still draw power even when they are turned off, as long as they are plugged in. That said, you likely won't wish to unplug appliances like microwave ovens, ranges or washing machines when they aren't in use due to the inconvenience of plugging them in each time.

    What does Energy Star mean?

    Energy Star is a program that provides certification to products that meet certain standards of energy efficiency. You'll find an Energy Star rating on every major appliance sold at Sam's Club. You can use this information to help you determine which appliance is right for you.
