Everyday, we hear people complaining about how much it costs to buy a new refrigerator but few people are ever specific about the actual cost.
Yes, it’s expensive, but how much does a refrigerator cost?
Where do you go to buy a refrigerator?
What are the best brands of refrigerators to buy?
You want to buy a refrigerator that will last you a lifetime, hold everything that you need it to, and still fit within your price range. That can be hard to do, especially if you don’t know where to look.
This article is here to help you get an idea of what you will most likely end up paying, and we’ll hopefully give you a good idea of different ways that you can save your money, or at the very least we’ll give you tips on how to spend your money more wisely so that not a penny is wasted.
First of all, most consumers say that they spend somewhere around $900 for a brand new refrigerator. They are not always name brand or top quality, high capacity refrigerators but they get the job done.
On average, refrigerators can be found at prices anywhere from $400 to $4,000 based on your needs.
If you are looking for a small refrigerator for a single person living in an apartment, you will be looking at around $550 for a decent refrigerator.
If you are looking for a huge refrigerator that will fit enough food to keep a restaurant’s stock cold, then you are at the higher end of the scale, around $10,000.
You can find better deals on these refrigerators of course, and you can buy cheaper brands.
However, in the long run, it can be much more worthwhile to buy a high quality, name brand refrigerator (hopefully one that comes with a lifetime warranty, just in case!) than it is to buy the cheapest one that you can find. It will typically last much longer and pay for itself in just a couple months.
What brands should you look for?
Kitchen Aid, Whirlpool, and LG are the top brands on the market right now, and they also offer the best value. If you don’t like any of those brands, you can do your research and find something cheaper/more effective at filling your needs.
You can save some money by shopping online rather than in-store. Not only will shopping online be more efficient for you, but you can also find better deals.
In fact, if you look on websites like Amazon.com, you will often be able to save hundreds of dollars up front, and you will not have to sacrifice any of the quality of the refrigerator.

If you don’t feel comfortable with shopping online, you will still be able to find great deals in the store, though you might not have access to as much variety as you would like.
Also, if you have problems with not being able to see the refrigerator in person and have an idea of what you’re getting, you can always have it sent to the store that is local to you and drive out to see if for yourself; you will usually still pay the deal price that you find online.
Obviously, a refrigerator is a huge purchase and you don’t want to rush into it without being prepared for it.
Do your research first and have an idea of what you’re getting yourself into and you won’t regret the purchase.
