A KitchenAid stand mixer is a luxury kitchen appliance for anyone. Here is how to get the best price on the mixer.
Things You'll Need
- credit card
The first thing you should do is decide which model you are looking for. Some models come in many colors so it is a good idea to decide if color is important to you. If the mixer will be displayed in your home this may be more important to you than those who will tuck it away in a cabinet or closet.
After you have decided which model you are looking for, visit Amazon, Epinions.com and PriceGrabber.com. All of these sites give useful product reviews and comparative prices from store to store.
When shopping at retail stores very often they will offer a discount for new credit card accounts. If you wish to open a credit account with one of these stores, beware, the interest rates on these cards are often in the neighborhood of 20%. If you do not plan on paying for your mixer in full when your credit card bill is due, this option could wind up costing you a lot of money.
Look for coupons in your local papers and at Coupon Surfer and Coupon Cabin before shopping. You may find that you get big discounts this way. Some retailers put KitchenAid products in the fine print as not eligible so be sure to read the fine print before you go to the store.
Ebay and Craigslist may offer kitchen appliances at a steep discount so be sure to check these two. The downside to one of these purchases is there may be no return policy should the item be broken and the shipping charges may be astronomical.
That being said, it is still a good idea to check them out.
If you have a credit card that accrues points for shopping, check your balance. You may actually have enough points to get your mixer for free with a retail gift card! If you don't already have one of these credit cards, you are missing out on one of the best benefits of holding a credit card!
