Thread Summary
List of CEE tier list of refrigerators (scroll to bottom to see tier 3):
https://library.cee1.org/system/files/l ... rs_pdf.pdf

REBATE is based on the subtotal (pre-tax) and given after tax
TAX must be paid on the subtotal

Washer is $500
Dryer is $500
Subtotal = $1000
25% rebate = $250
13% HST = $130
You Pay: $1000 + $130 = $1130 - $250 = $880

If you open the excel, there's a tab for Tier 3.
If you go with the PDF, scroll to the third last page where you'll see the Tier 3 heading stretch across the screen.

The same questions keep getting asked. The answers are in the thread. Use the search function. :facepalm:

For the Costco question: there is an item code (link is on the same product page) and you need to add that to your shopping cart and the rebate will be applied (assuming you are a resident of & shipping in Ontario).

This will be the last time I or anyone else should answer these same questions. Or read the OP on page one for other questions.

Make sure you buy things on sale. Most items on the Lowe’s link are much more expensive than their sales price in the past. For example the water heater $1649 was on sale in December for 1299

I ordered 3 appliances from Lowes in the beginning of the Aug, and I just received them on last Sat. I will go in to the store for price adjustment tomorrow.

NOTE: Lowes has Save the Tax on top of the rebate until tomorrow.

Lowes mentions rebate is available for in-store purchases only. Do they even stock any refrigerators in store?
Every other refrigerator online has this note, "This product is a special order item and is not stocked in your local Lowe's store. It is available online or in-store by speaking to an associate. This product will be shipped to your local Lowe's store for truck delivery or store pickup. Standard charges apply for home delivery."

Does anyone know if a refrigerator with this note can be bought with rebate in store?
