I've received several questions about Samsung appliances, particularly about the rebates that are available from state-to-state.
Many of you already know that many states are participating in a rebate when you purchase a qualifying product that reduces consumption of energy by category.
The state governments have made over $300 million in cash rebates available through the Appliance Clunker Rebate program.
To make it easy, Samsung - in partnership with ApplianceRebate.com - has announced a new website that allows you to check Federal, State and Local government rebates that apply when you purchase qualifying Samsung appliances:
And if that wasn't enough, if you ever wondered what your current appliance (okay, I won't call it an outright "clunker" per se, even though others might.... ) is costing you compared to a new model, there are some tools that you can use to calculate an estimate of the amount of energy you use now, and what you could be saving with an energy efficient appliance.
If you're going to buy an appliance, and you've considered Samsung, this is just one more way to really save some money, and do so with the least amount of additional effort researching.
Discussion points and unofficial survey:
1. What was your last appliance purchase?
2. What is (probably) your next appliance purchase?
3. Do rebates and energy savings motivate you to purchase appliances before your current model breaks? If so, what would it take for you to pull the trigger and upgrade?
4. If you're a "I wait until it breaks and then replace it" type of shopper, are the energy savings and rebates causing you to re-consider, or are you standing firm to wait until it breaks and hope that other rebates and sales will still deliver a good deal?
No wrong answers here, and I'm interested in hearing what you think.
And always, thanks for considering Samsung products!
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
