The Black Friday refrigerator deals are all over for another year. Buying a new refrigerator is a significant investment - it's one of the most expensive appliances we can buy for our homes. This is why it's so important to know how to get the best deals, to cut $100s or potentially $1000+ off your new kitchen upgrade.

I know that you can't always predict, or have a say in, when you will need to buy a refrigerator, but it does pay to wait until the holidays. From the best French door refrigerators, to the best side-by-side refrigerators, to even the best mini-fridges - I saw some major price drops across the board from a couple of weeks prior to Black Friday through to Cyber Week. Of course, it's always worth knowing how to choose a refrigerator which will always help narrow down the deal search, then after that you're on to a winner.

High-end fridges come with impressive features like adjustable or flip-up shelving, craft ice makers, and smartphone connectivity, and some even have viewing panels that let you see the contents of your fridge without opening. It'd be a shame to miss out on these features due to the price tag, so if you wait until the right time and do the proper research, you could even grab a top-of-the-line fridge at an impressive price. 

For more detailed thoughts, check out our guide on two of the biggest fridge brands, LG vs Whirlpool. Below you'll find links to all your favorite stores to shop during Black Friday, and all year through - plus some advice not to be missed for next year's event.

Black Friday refrigerator deals: buying advice

What is Black Friday?

Black Friday traditionally signifies the start of the holiday shopping season in the US, with almost all retailers - both in the malls and online - slashing prices in the hope of persuading shoppers to buy holiday presents early. Almost everything is up for grabs, with the best Black Friday deals taking in electronics, clothes, toys, home furnishings, cookware, and much more. 

The best Black Friday deals can see 50%, 60%, or even 70% discounted off the hottest items. Last year, Black Friday shoppers spent $7.4 billion online alone, making it the second largest internet shopping day ever, while billions of dollars more would have been splurged in stores across the US. However, Black Friday deals do not stand alone, with Cyber Monday now offering just as many buying opportunities - indeed, it is the $7.9 billion spent online across Cyber Monday 2018 that is the best-selling day ever in terms of online revenue. In some instances, the Cyber Monday deals can be even better than Black Friday, particularly if retailers are keen to shift on any remaining stock. 

When to shop for a Black Friday refrigerator deal?

You'll find the best Black Friday refrigerator deals around the start of the holiday, from beginning of October. Refrigerators are on offer all-year round, but this is when you'll see the most impressive discounts. 

This is because refrigerator manufacturers like LG, Samsung and such release new stock at the beginning of the fall, and use Black Friday as an opportunity to clear old stock. When Black Friday 2024 comes around, expect to see deep discounts on refrigerator models from 2021, '22, and '23.

If you're looking to invest in a new fridge, and have the patience to wait until 2024, you can expect to see something similar. 

Where to shop for a Black Friday refrigerator deal?

When your looking for a Black Friday refrigerator deal, there is never going to be just one store to shop from. There is a site though which will do all the research for you, and put all the refrigerator deals into one place; that's Top Ten Reviews

If you'd prefer to shop around yourself then we can recommend having a look at Amazon for a mini fridge deal, or The Home Depot, Walmart and Best Buy for anything larger. It can also pay to check out the brands direct who often had exclusives and different stock to that listed with the resellers.

How to get the best Black Friday refrigerator deals

Buying a new refrigerator can be challenging, especially with the wide range of features and styles available in the market. When it comes to choosing the best refrigerator deal, capacity is the most important thing to consider. You should determine how much space you need based on your household size and your grocery shopping habits.

As well as capacity, you should also consider the refrigerator style that will best fit your home. French door refrigerators are ideal for larger kitchens and offer a larger capacity, while side-by-side refrigerators offer full freezer and fridge space. Many refrigerators now come with smart tech features, such as app-controlled temperature settings and complete smart home integration, which allow you to connect all your home appliances.

If you're looking to purchase a refrigerator or any other product during the holiday season, searching for the item on multiple websites is the best way to save money (Honey is a great tool for this). Different retailers might offer varying discounts on the same product or start with different base prices, resulting in different prices for the same item across different websites. Checking multiple websites is always a good idea to ensure you get the best deal. You can also create a shopping list of the items you plan to buy during the holiday season, and checking the current prices of those items can help you determine if you're getting a good deal on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

To help you find the best deals we've created a one-stop shop where you can find all the best deals in one place. This will help you to prevent the sales period from getting too overwhelming and allow you to get a taste of the types of discounts and deals available on the big day leading up to it. By following our advice, you'll be able to save money on the products and devices you're interested in buying, not just during the holiday season but also during future sales.
