With all of its huge discounts, Black Friday can be one of the best days of the year to get your hands on big-ticket items at reasonable prices. Take kitchen appliances, for example: on almost any other day you can easily drop a hundred bucks or even a lot more on a quality coffee maker, mixer or blender.
Fortunately, NerdWallet has rounded up some of the best Black Friday deals on these and other kitchen appliances to help you plan out your big shopping day. We’ll fill you in on each one’s key features, where to buy each item and how much of a discount you can get.
Sodastream Jet Home Soda Maker Starter Kit
It looks like this kit, which comes with four different soda flavorings to start, will typically be selling for its usual retail price of $79.99 pretty much wherever you buy it. But if you go to Target you can get a store gift card (typically for $25) and a coupon for two free syrups with each Sodastream starter kit you purchase.
Hamilton Beach 10-Speed Blender
If you’d like a good quality blender but can only spare ten bucks, stop by JCPenny for the Hamilton Beach 10-Speed Blender. It’s normally $35, but on Black Friday you’ll only pay $19.99 at the store. With the $10 mail-in rebate, the final price comes to just $9.99.
Kenmore 25-Cubic-Foot Refrigerator
You’ll need to get to Sears early to grab this deal, since the fine print in the store’s Black Friday ad notes there are only about two per store. But if you’re lucky, you can own this fridge, which features spill-proof shelves, for $799.99. That’s a full $500 off the usual $1,299.99 retail price. On top of that, you’ll get an additional 5% off if you’ve got a Sears card.
Farberware Stainless Steel Toaster Oven
Normally available closer to the $20 price range, this toaster oven will be on sale for only $15 at Walmart this Black Friday. This toaster oven can accommodate a 9-inch pizza or four slices of bread and has toast, bake and broil settings. It comes with a two-year warranty.
Coca Cola Retro Personal Fridge
All done up in Coke-can red with a traditional-looking Coca Cola logo, this personal-sized fridge holds up to six 12-ounce cans and can be used as a cooler or warmer. It includes both 12-volt and 110-volt power cords. It will be available at Home Depot on Black Friday for $29.88.
KitchenAid Classic Stand Mixer
Good-quality mixers can easily run $300 to $500 or more, so this name-brand option will be looking pretty affordable for $199.99 this Black Friday – especially since it usually retails for at least $30 more. The deal will be available at Best Buy for as long as supplies last.
Bella Theater Style Popcorn Maker
This scaled-down version of the classic theater-style popcorn maker is designed for everyday use in the kitchen. Regularly priced at $99.99, the item will be available at Macy’s on Black Friday for half off at $49.99. You can save another $15 if you take advantage of the mail-in rebate.
There will be hundreds, probably thousands, of Black Friday kitchen appliance deals to choose from, and that could be overwhelming to say the least. Consider the bargains above examples of the types of savings you should look out for and avoid settling for mediocre discounts. A little persistence could save you hundreds of dollars!
