say if HD has one for $1895, and BB has it for $1709, so how does the extra 10% off work? Will HD be matching 1709 and reduceding additional of 10% of 1709( $171)?? If that's correct, HD will be lost money on it. 1709-171=>$1539. Please check my math ;)

It’s 10% off the difference so in your example : 186 difference so 10% off that is 18.6. Price would then be 1709-18.6= 1690.4

Edit : mixed it up with the old Best Buy price match my bad Home depot does indeed offer a full 10% off

That is exactly how it works! You can get some real good deals at HD taking advantage of this.

Wongster has it correct.

I had done a bunch of the paperwork on buying appliances at HD the day before and was to go in the next day and pay, but in the morning I noticed the bestbuy sale. So I went back to HD to get them to redo it all.

I did have an excellent associate at HD working on this for me. Bestbuy at the time had to have you login to see the sale price, the associate could not do this so I had to run home, login, and print each appliance clearly showing the sale price and sale period (one day only). Then got back to HD and she worked at it for almost an hour writing it all up. A major pain, but I saved almost 2 thousand on 3 appliances.

So if you're planning on doing this get there early.

Does HD carry appliances in store or say its only available online then can you get it price matched at a store?

The 3 appliances I bought were in the store. Where Bestbuy has it (store vs web) is not relevant I believe, HD will price match/beat either

One other way of saving money on a big purchase at HD is if they are running their credit card 10% deal at the same time.

When I bought it was 0% financing which I did take advantage of but the following week after my buy they were running the 10% which would have been awesome if I could have used or.

That's good infomraiton and good to know. Next time, I may get really looking into it.

well, I did brought one exactly same one from Costco for a GNE27JSMSS at $1649.99 with 5 yr warranty on them. THey are really good with returning, and I just need to call and fill up a form, someone will show up and box away the 36" fridge.

If I proceed with what you guys told me, I would be saving about $110.( or in my case, I have a crazy cash back card like 2% off on everything, that's about saving of $40, so I am short of $70 here)But I wont do it as It was a pain to get the frige moved over from curb side into the garage, and then to the kitchen. I had to take off the whole door off and put it back on. It took me about 2 hrs to place where I wanted. Man, I would rather let the opportunity pass and I really value my 2 hrs of labour over the $70.

Have a good night guys/Gals. Unless you are really needing something fast from HD or BB.

Thank you so much. What I am in the market for is an induction range and didn't see any HD stores actually carry them based on website availability unfortunately.

Is this the best deal of the year when price matched at Home Depot? We also have to buy appliances for a new home that we take possession of in September.. I will buy them all now if this will be as good as it assumedly gets.

Sale actually goes to May 21. I put an order in to lock in my price, then I am going to independent stores and try to get a better price.

Just checking on pretty much everything in my cart.. most of it is only doing the 15% off, and not the 20% as it is “up to”. I doubt Home Depot would knock another 10% off as it’s essentially the same deal.

Best Buy also doesn’t include washer/dryer in the major appliance and Home Depot does in their buy more save more event.

I suppose it’s good if you can get the “up to” 20% off, but if it’s only 15%, probably better sticking with Home Depot. This one might be a pass for me.

Just wanted to say something about the 25% energy rebate. If you were to buy enough for 20% off (aka $3500+), it seems that they are deducting the 25% energy rebate "post" 20% of the retail price. This wasn't the case when I bought this in best buy near labour day weekend.

For example in the current situation on best buy online:
if you buy more than $3500, and if a qualifying washer is $1000, then you get 20% off the $1000 washer (-$200), and then you get 25% off of $800 (-$200) from the energy rebate. Tax is based on the washer after 20% off. So the math is:
($1000 - ($1000 * 0.2)) * 1.13 - ($1000 * 0.8 * 0.25)
= (($1000 - $200) * 1.13) - $200
= $904 - $200
= $704

Not sure if best buy is making an error in their system, but before their way of calculating the energy rebate was based on the retail retail price before 20% off, so in this example the rebate would've been $250.

Edit: also looks like they changed their sale to major kitchen appliances now, so does not work on washer/dryer
