I don't usually highlight major appliances. But just in case someone is looking, this is a great deal. And I think it has some "deals educational value" too! Read on ...
I originally found this deal HERE, but think I have added some extra value ...
Here is the refrigerator from Sears.com:
As you can see, it's "on sale" (who knows what the real/normal full price is) for almost "half off" at $722. The first discount you can easily get is the $50 off coupon code "EXTRA50" ... so now we're down to $672.
Now here's where having a Discover card comes in handy again (read more info HERE). The Discover shopping portal ("Discover Deals" - again, only available to Discover cardholders) is currently paying 10% back for Sears.com, and that amount is doubled (to 20%) at then end of 12 months. But as you can read about on Frequent Miler's blog (HERE), you can "double dip"** at Sears. You first buy Sears.com gift cards (in the amount you need to spend) and earn the 20% Discover portal bonus. Then go back through the portal again and pay with those gift cards, earning 20% again!! Finally, department stores (including Sears) are Discover's "quarterly 5% bonus category" this quarter, so you earn another 10% (5% doubled) if you pay for the gift cards with Discover.
If you followed all of that, you see that you can potentially save another 50% off of the post-coupon $672 price. I'll let you do the math. If you didn't quite follow all of that, feel free to ask me. Or if you don't have a Discover card YET (you should!!), you might want to ask a friend with a Discover card to see if he or she will order it for you!
Alternatively, if you don't have a Discover card, you could still use another shopping portal (look up Sears at CashBackMonitor.com). But the best portal other than Discover is ShopAtHome at 6% or United Airlines at 6 United frequent flier miles per dollar. You can still "double dip"** with those portals (using them to buy gift cards and then using the gift cards to buy the refrigerator).
**Note that I cannot guarantee that the "double dip" (as described in the Frequent Miler blog post) will work. But I can tell you from personal experience (and lots of second-hand stories) that it has worked.
