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. 

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.

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.

4th of July mini fridge deals

The 4th of July sales on mini fridges is often a good introduction to what we can expect through Prime Day. While Amazon do stock plenty of mini fridges, so do rivalling resellers such as Best Buy and Walmart which can make for fierce price-matching as they compete for your attention.

It would be a good idea to look out for 4th of July mini fridge deals from mid-June. This will give you the chance to get what you want in time for Independence Day. It's unlikely that we'll see discounts get deeper, and those sales will end promptly so add to cart sooner rather than later if shopping at this time of year.

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. 

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.
