When shopping for appliances, especially in this grand merry season of Christmas, always make sure you get your money's worth. Do not be fooled by freebies. Make sure you've compared prices beforehand to make sure those freebies weren't actually included in the selling price. On the other hand, make sure to inquire abut freebies too.
See, most manufacturers have actually included the cost of certain things with their products. For example, most TV sets come with free tv stands now. PLasma TVs come with free mounting services.
And make sure you inquire about warranties and compare wattages. Go green when you can. And stick to trusted brands if you know you'll be using that certain appliance a lot.
