Hey guys and gals. I hope your thanksgiving holiday was wonderful. Well with this being black friday. I saw what i thought was a GREAT deal for stainless steel look refrigerator at lowes. It was advertised at 749 after 200 rebate. I was like wow i was wanting to compliment my kitchen for awhile and get rid of my standard refrigerator (not side by side) and get a stainless steel looking unit. I think i almost prefer stainless steel look over stainless because its easier to keep clean. Well i went to lowes to look at it and well i did like it. It had a lot of room (26cu feet) My current one is only 20.8. It had water/ice in the door. Ok there were some features missing from this that you get when you upgrade but im thinking the cost isn't worth it.
Ok what don't you get. You don't get the sliding shelves (my current fridge has this and i hardly ever use them). It doesn't come with the ice bin on the inside of the door when you open it. It just has a little shoot where the ice can go through. It doesn't come with a light to tell you when to change the water filter (which i also would like). It didn't have digital controls (which don't seem to be a big deal). So here is what it ended up costing me 892 + 70(tax) + 49(deivery) - 200(MIR) - 49(MIR free delivery). So pretty much it ended up costing me 692 + tax. I think think this is pretty much unheard of for a side by side stainless steel look fridge. What do you guys think? I really like the samsung unit but it was $1600. Since this was almost $1000 cheaper it was almost a no brainer for me. So what do you guys think? I made the right choice? I love to hear feedback on my decision. Be brutal if needed :).
