Your Bargains and Freebies

Beware of Wholesale Clubs

Wholesale clubs like Costco and Sam's, may look attractive to the bulk shoppers, but they're not convincing as a bargain source for major appliances.

First of all you'll end up having to pay a membership fee that can cost you up to $45 or more just to go in and browse and compare prices.  The availability of major appliances at these stores ranges from next to nothing to fair and it will vary from one location to the next.  Delivery is extra if you can't carry it home right then.

My experience with wholesale clubs is that if you do the math you can do better at the regular stores, especially if you use coupons.
