my bf and i just bought a new fridge a few months ago when the old one that came with the house we bought died (irritatingly just after i bought $50 worth of meat
). we went out and looked at a few scratch-n-dent appliance stores and didn't find any spectacular deals. last place we went was a sears appliance outlet. they were having a sale on bottom-mount and double door fridges, 50% off. got a heck of a deal on a kenmore elite treo with water and ice maker, i think we walked out the door with it for $750, no blemishes or marks. stainless steel, 25 cubic feet, full size drawer on the bottom of the fridge part. the freezer on the bottom is awesome, makes much more sense than on top cause it doesn't get opened all the time like the fridge, better for those who don't like to bend down all the time to get the veggies or hunt for somthing stuffed in the back. the freezer drawer is mounted on ball-bearing rollers i believe, slides out very easily even when loaded down with meat. the freezer door also tilts out which is really slick when ya wanna grab something quick like a roll of sausage. i highly recommend the bottom mount ones, they're spendier but if you have a sears outlet or other appliance outlet they can be fairly resonable.
