So remember when I posted how our seven year old refrigerator broke down three days before Christmas and we had to go out and buy a new fridge. Well this week I finally am paying off that fridge free and clear, and at over seventeen hundred dollars that Stainless Steel Whirlpool refrigerator cost me as much as if I were buying engagement rings seriously.
But the new fridge works well and has a nice warranty, I paid to have it replaced or repaired for free if anything goes wrong with it in the next two years, there isn’t even a service fee or deductible. So far it is working out very well for us, I finally did get the $79 rebate card back from Lowes, they give you the installation back as a prepaid VISA card. It took about four weeks to get it once I filled out the rebate form and sent it in.
Just an FYI for all you families out there, remember household emergencies do happen. Appliances break down and there needs to be repairs, so it is a good idea to keep a savings to cover these incidentals, or else you will end up having to finance a replacement or be stuck making payments.
