Are you considering purchasing new home appliances in Perth? Well, you’re not alone. Every year, thousands of Australians upgrade their old appliances and many others simply purchase new ones. Appliance manufacturers release new and improved models every year, so there is certainly no shortage of options.
However, you simply cannot go out and purchase home appliances. Home appliances are high utility items, so it is important that you purchase wisely – and there are several factors to consider before you set about this task.
According to the ABS, the energy rating, water rating and cost price are the major factors taking into consideration when buying or replacing home appliances in Australia. If you’re like me and are budget conscious, then I’m sure this is no surprise at all to you. All three of these factors will result in great savings. However, did you know there are other things you can do to save even more money when shopping for home appliances in Perth?

1. Go shopping around the festive season
If you’re looking for home appliances in Perth at discounted prices, shopping around the holidays is a great idea. During holidays and festive seasons, you get a chance to purchase bestselling appliances at heavily discounted prices. Most retailers in Perth will offer special offers, deals, and discounts during festive season that you can take advantage of. At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, we too offer such seasonal sales where products are featured at rebated prices.
If you need a new appliance and can wait until the next festive season, I suggest you do so as it will be well worth it. However, you must be prepared to face the rush, as everyone will be eyeing these exclusive seasonal deals. Nevertheless, prices will always shoot up after such sales, so it is definitely worth fighting the rush.
2. Buy previous year’s models
This strategy is a personal favourite of mine. New models of home appliances are launched very frequently, at least once every year. If you’re not fussy about purchasing the latest model, then you can pick up some great savings. Simply check the price difference between last and this year’s price and you will see for yourself what I mean.
If you decide to follow this strategy, you must keep your eye out on when new appliances are being launched. If you time things right, you can purchase last year’s bestselling home appliances in Perth at huge discounted prices! Look to make your purchases around September and October when retailers face the pressure of making space for new arrivals. However, dates may vary between stores, so it’s best to talk to the salesperson or look at advertisements for new arrivals.
3. Choose functionality over frills
Whenever I need to purchase a new home appliance, I always consider my personal needs. This gives me an idea of what I want and I then look for the appliance that meets my requirements.
As a rule of thumb, the more frills an appliance offers, the higher the price. As such, when you’re out shopping for home appliances in Perth, understand what features you consider to be frills. Some frills may be essential to your lifestyle, while others will not. Always choose only the features that matter to you and disregard the rest. By cutting down on added frills, you can dramatically reduce the cost on your purchase. I recommend that you choose functionality over frills to get the best deal.
Here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre, many of the home appliances that we offer are highly functional units with minimum added frills. If you want to purchase items that are not overloaded with unnecessary features, our products are your best bet. Whether you’re looking for Ovens, Cooktops, Freestanding Ovens, Rangehoods, Microwaves, Dishwashers, Refrigerators, Wine Fridges, Laundry Appliances or even a gourmet BBQ, trust you’ll get a great deal by shopping with us.
4. Buy appliances with minor blemishes
Minor blemishes on new appliances, such as scratches and dents can lead to a hefty price tag reduction. Such minor blemishes do not affect the functionality of an appliance in any way, but only the appearance. Moreover, these dents and scratches are usually so minor that they can only be detected on inspection.
If you don’t mind purchasing a new appliance with a scratch or dent on it, by all means, go for it! Many home appliances retailers in Perth hold special sales featuring products with minor scratches and dents. You can make use of these special sales to buy your favourite appliance at a super discounted price. You can expect 30-60% off the retail price on such models.
Some retailers in Perth frequently conduct such special sales on weekends and holidays. However, more often than not, these sales are random. The only way you can know about such sales is by checking local ads or by asking retailers directly.
5. Compare prices
Think you’ve found an awesome deal on new home appliances in Perth at your best-loved retailer? Well, you cannot really be sure unless you compare prices across different stores. You don’t need to go around price hunting from one store to another. Simply pick up your local newspaper or look at comparison sites on the internet. By comparing products offered by different retailers, you can figure out who is offering you the best deal. While every retailer will tout to offer the best prices, a comparison will show that price difference exists between stores.
By comparing prices, you can save on your appliances even before you make a purchase! While this may seem like a little bit of work, it will be very well worth it. This strategy will let you purchase your favourite appliance at the lowest advertised price. In fact, many of the customers I met at Ross’s come to us after finding our products to be the lowest advertised in Perth! This only goes to show that when we say we offer the best prices, we really do!
