If you think you need new appliances such as washers, dryers, refrigerators and dish washers then make sure you take advantage of the rebates being offered.
Old appliances waste a lot of money and energy. That waste hurts both your pocketbook, your local power grid and further pollutes the air. As such, the government and our society would benefit if you would upgrade to energy saving appliances.
Through their energy star program, you can find out what products are eligible and what type of incentives are offered. Most common are rebates. You mail in the proper paperwork and get a check back.
Depending on the size and cost, the amounts can range from $25 to $100. If you’re talking about a new AC unit the rebate can be in the thousands. No matter what, any rebate is worth the postage or labor sending in.
You’re going to have to deal with the old appliances. If they’re still good, try to sell them. If not, you may have to pay a recycle fee or a fee to get rid of them. Depends on where you live.
Some appliance companies will do it for you. Rent to own stores will because that’s what they do. They’re in the service business so take advantage of their services that are a part of their fee.
And if you do go rent to own appliances then they’ll set it up for you. Again, part of their service. Try the product before you buy it. You’re not obligated to make the next payment and it’s a legal debt-free transaction so you won’t get in any trouble.
And, make sure you exercise the 90 or 180 days same as cash option. Gives you the flexibility of payments over the months and still with no legal, financial obligations. Again, it’s a part of their service. And, best of all, going with “same as cash option” saves you a lot of money while getting those services that retailers don’t offer. And, remember, when you buy it and get the receipt send it in to get your energy saving rebate!
