Mini fridge deals often have discounts that you can not afford to miss. While they are small in size, they bring a huge factor of convenience. If you get one in the sale then you'll find that it is going to be money (very) well spent.

Only the best mini fridges can bring style, extra storage space and a level of privacy to what you want cooled, all while being much more affordable than french door refrigerators — even when not on sale. 

You'll soon figure out whether or not a mini fridge is worth it for yourself, although we certainly think so because of their versatility to chill food, drink and even cosmetics. If you do manage to bag a mini fridge deal in the sales  then you'll only be looking at spending up to $100, so it could be a worthwhile punt — and investment — too.

Stick with Top Ten Reviews to find all the best current sales and deals on mini fridges, as well as expert guidance on how to make sure you're getting the best deal. We've also compiled this list of the 10 best things you can do with a mini fridge, to help you get the most out of your new mini fridge all-year round.

Where to find the best mini fridge deals

From wine coolers, to mini fridge/freezers, to cosmetic fridges, there is plenty of choice available to shop in a smaller size. We've seen a number of our favorite stores such as Amazon and Wayfair have mini fridge deals year-round, and through the holidays.

Below, you can see our A-Z of the stores selling mini fridges (including Amazon) along with a handful of our editor-approved deals from the Big Spring Sale to shop right now. 

When to shop for the best mini fridge deals

It's best to buy any appliance during Black Friday and Cyber Monday as this is when we see the biggest discounts, and the most choice on offer. The same goes for small appliances too, and we saw plenty of Cyber Monday mini fridge deals pop up last year.

So, the best time of year to buy a mini fridge is in the fall. This is because many manufacturers are clearing the way to make space for new stock to land in the spring. It's good to keep watch during any end of year sales and after Christmas sales, too, because that's generally when you'll see the return of some Black Friday and Cyber Monday prices as a last ditch attempt to shift stock. This will also bode well with any New Year celebrations that'll require some additional cool storage. 

Presidents' Day mini fridge deals

Retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart usually make a pretty big deal out of Presidents Day sales, especially on larger appliances, but there are still good deals to be had on smaller items like mini fridges too, so keep your eyes peeled for them. 

Labor Day mini fridge deals

There's potential to find some bargains in the Labor Day sales. We see deals on a range of appliances every year, but there isn't always the greatest choice when it comes to mini fridges. Still, you'll definitely find a selection if you shop around the big retailers.

Amazon Prime Day mini fridge deals

If you're signed up to Prime, it's certainly worth checking out what's on offer when the Prime Day mini fridge deals land. Amazon has one of the best selections of mini fridges, and Prime Day usually provides heavy discounts across the board. So we wouldn't be surprised to see plenty of choices on offer, just like we did last year. 

We also spied that a bunch of anti-prime day deals launched last year (the first time ever) which saw rivalling retailers match or undercut the Amazon Prime Day mini fridge deals we were seeing. Expect to see the same, or similar, in 2024 as competition heats up to offer you the most enticing price possible.

Black Friday mini fridge deals

All appliances, small or large, see big price drops as they compete for the best Black Friday deals. Retailers compete to offer the best prices on Black Friday mini deals, and then some, making it a great time to shop around and grab a mini fridge at potentially its best price all year (or best price ever).

End of year mini fridge deals

The end of the year is a great time to be shopping for a mini fridge deal. Not only will this time of year help you to save top dollar, but it'll also help to provide a storage solution to the end of year (and New Year) celebrations.

What we've seen in general is that mini fridges are discounted in the weeks leading to Black Friday, and some remain at these low prices through the after Christmas sales until January. Some brands and resellers may even decide to offer deeper discounts as they clear stock to make way for newness in early spring.

How to get the best mini fridge deals

As experienced bargain hunters, the Top Ten Reviews team have a lot of advice to help you find the best mini fridge deals, especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

Research mini fridges
There are lots of mini fridges out there, each with their own style and function. Do you need a wine cooler? A cosmetics fridge? A mini fridge/freezer for food? Knowing what you need will help narrow down your decision, so you can be more focused when comparing prices.

Check different retailers
Once you've found the mini fridge you want, remember to look for it across as many of the different websites as you’d expect to find it. This is because not all retailers will discount to the same degree or be beginning from the same starting price — as with everyday, out-of-sale shopping — this can lead to differences between the prices of the same item at various sites, so it is always worth checking. 

Look at CamelCamelCamel and Honey
A highly useful tool for Black Friday and Prime Day, CamelCamelCamel tracks the prices of items sold on Amazon. So, if you're looking to buy from Amazon, you simply input the name of the product you’re looking at (or copy and paste the URL), and you’ll be able to see how the price on offer compares with what it has been before. While it's likely that Black Friday & Cyber Monday will prove the lowest price it has ever been, it doesn’t hurt to check!

Honey is another helpful tool, showing you how much a product is selling for on other sites, with price histories for each online store. It's a great way to find out if you're getting a mini fridge at a particularly low price, or if it's a deal that you can get all-year round.
