Want to get Lowe’s appliances on the cheap? If you can hit the best sales, shop in the right part of Lowe’s stores, and negotiate, then saving 10 – 30% on your next appliance is absolutely doable.

I’m going to show you exactly how to do that below. Plus, I’ve included all the essential info for price matching stores like Home Depot and Amazon, how to make an appliance return, and how to get free delivery.

1. The best Lowe’s appliance sale happens during their Presidents’ Day event.

Since 2019, Lowe’s Presidents’ Day sale has run from the start of February through the holiday weekend (always the third weekend of February, by the way).

And this is the time when I’ve found the best savings on Lowe’s large appliances. I’m talking 35 – 50% off regular price, which nearly doubles the savings we’ve seen at Lowe’s during their Black Friday sale. Here’s what I mean:

Buy 1 GE 25.3-cubic-feet side-by-side refrigerator (reg. $1,599), $999 sale price.
Free shipping on all orders over $45
Final Price: $999

Buy 1 Frigidaire Food-Disposal Built-In Dishwasher ($899), $449 sale price.
Free shipping on all orders over $45
Final Price: $449

 

2. Negotiate for a better price on damaged Lowe’s appliances and save 10 – 20%.

If you’re walking by a display model that’s got a few scratches or dents, track down a store manager and see if they’d be willing to accept a lower price. I’ve found that damaged models are placed near the back of my local Lowe’s.

I spoke with some Lowe’s employees who said they’ve seen folks save 10 – 20% on their appliance purchase by negotiating.

Scratches and dents? No biggie, especially if you have kids. Take it from me, it’ll probably end up with scratches or dents anyway.

 

3. Save 15 – 30% on Lowe’s appliances in the Appliance Special Values section.

Or, if you’re looking for cheap new Lowe’s appliances, check out the Appliance Special Values section of Lowes.com. I’ve found refrigerators, washers/dryers, dishwashers, and microwaves for 15 – 30% off regular price, like this Maytag dryer (reg. $749) for $589.

Buy 1 Maytag 7-cubic-foot Dryer with Wrinkle Control (reg. $749), $589 sale price
Free delivery on appliances over $400
Final Price: $589

But I’ve found the biggest savings on new refrigerators, like this Samsung French door refrigerator Lowe’s made available for 30% off the regular price.

Buy 1 Samsung 28.2-cubic-foot French Door Refrigerator with ice Maker (reg. $2,099), $1,499 sale price
Free delivery on appliances over $400
Final Price: $1,499

 

4. Lowe’s will price match appliance prices at Home Depot, Amazon, and Walmart.

If you find a competitor with a better price on something Lowe’s carries, alert your Lowe’s manager. As long as the competitor’s item is identical to the appliance at Lowe’s — and is in stock at both stores — the Lowe’s manager should match the lower price.

Lowe’s will match regular prices from The Home Depot, Amazon, Walmart, Ace Hardware, and several other stores (see our full breakdown of Lowe’s Price Match here). All you need to do is provide the proof. A competitor’s ad, photo, or screenshot will all work.

 

5. Ask a Lowe’s manager about an extended warranty on out-of-box appliances.

If you’re buying an in-store product that’s out of the box, speak with the manager about warranty options. They may give you an extended warranty in that situation (these cost $250 – $300 for new appliances).

 

 

6. Lowe’s appliances must be returned within 48 hours for a refund.

Although you don’t need your receipt to return appliances, Lowe’s does shorten the return window for these items to 48 hours after customers receive their Lowe’s appliance. On paper, the items must be returned in like-new condition.

In practice? It’s up to the Lowe’s store manager. And employees I spoke with said each manager has a different approach. Some managers are fine with extending the return window if a customer can explain their situation, and some are willing to accept appliances that have clearly been used.

 

7. Get free delivery on your Lowe’s appliance if you spend more than $400.

As long as there’s a fulfillment location within 75 miles of your home/business, Lowe’s will deliver large appliances right to your home.

And if you spend more than $400, Lowe’s will waive their traditional $79 delivery fee. Plus, Lowe’s delivery includes free installation. Just make sure to empty and unplug your old appliance and have all the necessary cords and hookups for your new one.

Here’s what you’ll need for your new appliances:

  • Refrigerators: new ice maker/water line
  • Dishwashers: new dishwasher connector hose
  • Gas ranges/gas dryers: new dryer duct
  • Washers: new hoses
  • Electric dryers: dryer duct and electrical cord
  • Electric ranges: dryer duct, electrical cord, and three/four-pronged plug

 

8. Lowe’s military discount no longer applies to Lowe’s appliance purchases.

Lowe’s Military Discount usually provides a 10% on all Lowe’s purchases, but in March 2022 Lowe’s altered their policy. Lowe’s now excludes appliances, lumber, and electrical wire from their military discount.

If you’re looking for the best military discounts, though, we’ve got a great list.

I hope this helps you save on your next appliance purchase. Let me know if you have any other questions in the comments below, and I’ll get back to you. Thanks for reading!
