[Sears] 14.1 Cu. Ft. Frigidaire Manual Defrost Upright Freezer $369.99

I've been checking prices on upright freezers for about a year and this is the best price I've seen so far.
It is out of stock online so in store only. If they don't have one in stock, they can order it in and match the online price.

I wouldn't buy from Sears for anything listed as out of stock.

From inside sources, Sears Canada is a mess right now - especially their payment and inventory IT systems.

I ordered a stove in mid April (in stock), Sears scheduled 3 times to make a delivery - none of which actually happened. After which someone would call to say that it was out of stock and they would try another delivery date. I eventually cancelled the order after a month of the order date.

Given all the bad news about Sears with the closing of their stores, payment issues and supply chain issues, I wouldn't be surprised if they were on the verge of failure/bankruptcy. These are very typical signs of a company going under.

Any online deal from Sears is a YMMV. If you must buy, make sure you are immediately getting the product after payment (i.e. buy and pickup from the store all within the same transaction)

I second this, I ordered a exercise bike from there a couple years ago, it said backordered but it had a date posted when it would get shipped out by, after continuous calls and missed dates (they told me it shipped but got lost in mail). They strung me along for 2 months, I cancelled the order, bought it from amazon for the same price and it showed up in the same week.

However we did order a freezer from sears last year around Christmas time, it came within a month after only a couple calls to the local Sears Homestore, if it was online, we probably wouldn't have gotten it. Good luck.

I think the online sales are messed up cuz they changed to a new system. It was a cluster f* during christmas time, worst time for them to changeover. However they were really good about it, as I got my items for FREE $40 worth! So, I still shop there because of that goodwill. We did order a freezer in store in Jan 2017, and we got it on the date that we chose for delivery.

Same here July 6. Salesman said the order went right to the Frigidaire manufacturer and was a sure thing. He seemed very confident I would get it at this price.

Yes, from times to times, you have to empty it, let the ice melt at ~50%, throw away the ice left (clean it while you're at it), and restart. Main advantage is food is not dried out, burnt, like in self defrost freezer. I knew a guy who would only put his hunting meat in a manual defrost freezer.
Pourquoi pas?

Looks like I got substituted - out of stock. I accepted a 14.1cu kenmore with frost free. Still a great price for the freezer.

Can someone post a screen shot of their receipt or online price at $369.99? They still might give me the discount.
