Sure, a new dishwasher might not be as sexy as an iPad or television, but if you’ve been considering some big-ticket household appliances, Black Friday could be your chance.  Dyson is running a 25% off sale on all its products at most retailers across the board, including all of the ones listed below. Here’s a look at some of the major appliance sales scheduled for this year:

Home Depot

The home improvement retailer giant is looking to play a big role in holiday shopping sales this year. Perhaps because it offers a bigger “spring Black Friday,” the company is being a little tight-lipped on some of its sales, but the store promises that refrigerators, stoves, and dishwashers will be discounted for its Black Friday. This year’s deals will include the Admiral 3.4 cubic-foot top-load washer or dryer at $299 a pop, down from $399.  Plenty of refrigerators, propane grills, and ovens will also be on sale. Perhaps the biggest perk is that free delivery and haul-away is being offered.


Sears will be opening their doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving for shoppers eager for Black Friday deals. Special sales will be offered before 1 p.m. on many appliances and other items, with sale prices going up slightly after that.  The retail chain’s 39-page Black Friday sales circular includes deals like 50% off a 22 cubic-foot Kenmore refrigerator for the new price of $1,299.99, or for $1,099.99 before 1 p.m. Friday. The 21 cubic-foot model will be selling for $499.99 before 1 p.m. After that, it goes up to $599.99. Still, that’s a big drop from its regular retail price of $879.99.

Other Kenmore appliances will also be at major discount, including washers and dryers, vacuum cleaners and an infrared space heater selling for $89.99. That’s down more than 60% from its regular listed price. Additionally, shoppers who use their Sears card will save an extra 5%. For the eco-conscious, be sure to look at Sears’s selection of Energy Star products.


With sneak peaks of its holiday sales on social media website Pinterest, a Black Friday Countdown clock on its website, and its leaked ad, Lowe’s is offering the following major discounts: a 16-gallon Shop-Vac for $49.98, a $50 discount from regular list price; an Idyllis air purifier knocked down to $189.99 from $225, and an eight-bottle, LED-display wine chiller that regularly goes for $99 will be sold for $49.99.

Best Buy

Though Best Buy has earned a reputation for its personal electronics, don’t skip over this big box store for appliances. Washers and dryers from brands including Samsung, GE, and LG will be on sale for as much as $200 and $300 off certain models. As a bonus, free installation services will be offered with any purchase of a dishwasher over $399. There will be bundles too, including a Samsung refrigerator, dishwasher, oven and microwave for a total of $2099.96. That’s a total savings of $1,670. Smaller appliances will also be on sale. In addition to 25% off all Dyson items – including fans and vacuums – all Kitchen Aid appliances will be 20% off.


Target’s sales include a quartet of kitchen appliances – a single-serve blender from Hamilton Beach, a Hamilton Beach six-speed hand mixer, a Sunbeam two-slice toaster and Black and Decker single-service drip coffee maker – all knocked down to $12 a piece. Target will also be your spot to get deep discounts on blenders, slow cookers, and other kitchen essentials. Whether you chose Target or any of the stores above, appliances are definitely deal-friendly this Black Friday.
