LG Washer WM3800HBA - $1099.99 - 15% = $934.99 (25% rebate = $275)
LG Dryer DLEX3900B - $1099.99 - 15% = $934.99 (25% rebate = $275)
Warranty for the Washer and Dryer total = $235
LG 36" Fridge LFXS26973S - $1899.99 - 15% = $1614.99
Warranty for the fridge = $175
Frigidaire Induction Range CGIF3036TF - $1299.99 - 15% = $1104.99
Whirlpool Dishwasher WDF560SAFM - $599.99 - 15% = $509.99 (25% rebate = $150)
Delivery (includes installation of washer, dryer, and range) - $79.99

Subtotal = $5589.94
+ tax = $726.69
Total = $6316.63
Minus Rebates ($275 + $275 + $150) = $5616.63

So saved about $1600 from the 15% discount ($900) and government rebates ($700).
I price matched exactly the same washer & dryer models from Best Buy 15% off deal with Rona and on top of that got free shipping, free removal of old appliances, free hoses (~$20) & installation and about $40 in Air Miles as they have 5X Air Miles deal with government rebates.
Unfortunately they refused to add additional 10% discount if we opened Rona credit card.

If you go with your bill to home depot then they will beat it by additional 10%.

you can't just take the bill to home depot for price beat right?!?!
I was told that it has to be an advertised price and he already price matched it at Rona using Bestbuy prices
if we can just use a bill to do that then we can keep on price matching at other store and price beating at home depot until the price drop to zero?!?!?!

How come the energy rebate on your receipt is only $317.50?

1271.62 * 25% = $317.91

Lowe's gypped you $0.41? I mean, it really doesn't matter over 41 cents but I want to point out that their math is flawed.

I wonder if there are more significant amounts on other people's receipts.

Also, your subtotal should have only been $1271.60... (635.80 * 2). Where did they get the extra 2 cents from? lol

I went with online quote and they did. You will never get it to zero anyway.Only homedepot beat it by 10%. Other store just match it.

Thanks!

If you're not in a rush you could wait and looking for some crazy stacking deals, but in general I find the specific Appliances that I want tend to not be on big sales during Black Friday/Boxing Week, so right now worked out for us.

Is the Lowe's Contractor Rewards Card free for anyone to sign up? And is it always 15% off, for everything?

I wouldn't say it would be the money running out but more that the program is cancelled after the Federal election (October 21st). You take that risk.
Tis banana is IRIE :razz:

10% off is cold, 50% off is warm, 75% off is hot, but FREE IS RFD!

Got my LG 4370 washer/dryer delivered today. Yeah!

Still contemplating whether to go back and buy the extended warranty (Lowe's) but still feel as if it would be a waste of money. I bought with credit card so I got the extra year warranty on top of manufacturer anyways.

I regret not getting extended warranty for my Samsung washer. I had 2 service calls (both were drain pump issue) which costed me over $300 for each call, but that's Sammy... ~$160 (I think they raised the extended price in Aug) for a washer under $1000 is cheaper than 1 service call and gives me peace of mind.

Someone may have already mentioned this, but if you have a Home Depot card they have an additional 10% off or 18 months no interest (for orders $299 or greater including tax).... So I just bought a dehumidifier, stacked it with some other items, and saved 10% off the whole bill plus 25% off the dehumidifier. Good deals!

If you are doing appliances then you get 25% off and then 10% off that, so 35% off (up to $300 max for the 10%)... If you get them to price match a competitor you could save even more. I'm planning to pick up a new dishwasher shortly using this method. Will report back on how it works.

I figure all of them would have to be special order from the manufacturer because do any of these stores actually keep these large appliances in-store on racks? lol...
These rebates + other promos apply to special orders according to the signage in Home Depot today.

I paid with another credit card to get appliances with price beat
this promotion comes out and I went into the store wanting to apply it to my order (my order is not yet delivered so I can refund and rebuy)
they said I can't use this credit card 10% off plus the price beat, it is one or the other
let me know if it works for you

Does Best Buy do Price Beat (10% off) now?
Last night the staff told me Bestbuy changed their policy last year or this year. Now they can ONLY MATCH the price of competitors', NOT BEAT it with 10% . BS?
