Appliances Purchase black Friday, delivery 6 months later?

Hello, our new place will be ready in 6 months. Can I purchase appliances this black Friday and get them delivered once I move into new place? Is there any retailer that does that?

Its possible but depends on how much/what you're buying. If you are buying doorcrasher (or clearance) items, they have the stock there and wouldn't likely be willing to hold the item for 6 months for you. If you are buying something thats "special order" then they might be more willing. Also it might depend on whether or not the item you're buying will still be a "stock" item in 6 months or if that item will be replaced. Bottom line, the best answer is just go and ask. Maybe even ask in advance at the store(s) you wish to buy anything (say as soon as the flyers are "leaked").

Just note that some appliances will actually end up cheaper in 6 months vs BF because 6 months from now is generally when next years models will be released so there will be some clearance "deals" then.

This.

NEW Appliances come out Spring & Fall

With the Las Vegas CES - Consumer Electronics & Technology Showcase in January being the annual unveiling for what's in the works

Spring - Is when NEW Refrigerators roll out (look for deals on past models / floor demos)
Fall - For everything else (again, look for deals on past models / floor demos)

For more info check out this link

Or Google for Consumer Reports Buying Guides for each appliance, like this one on Refrigerators

I don’t think appliances come out as often as iPhones though. Eg. The model of ranges and fridges that I’m looking at are all over 2-3 years old.

Too much risk for that long, Maybe it might be ok for a 2-3 week delay. Imagine if you bought from Sears 5 months ago and had been expecting delivery next month.

We did it at Lowes, to hold it for 2 months. Not sure if they'd go longer than that. After that, we had it delivered to my in-laws place, where they sat in the garage for a few months till our reno's were to the point that we could put appliances in the house.

6 months? I’d expect a storage fee
