Manufacturers' appliance rebates/sales--occur regularly?
We are vacillating on several different brands. Several have rebates that end on Dec. 31. Should an expiring opportunity like this force us into making a decision right now because these types of savings won't be offered again?
Actually, despite the fact that Viking's reputation on this board is really low, I am maybe considering buying a Viking VGIC range--the AG, open-burner one with the fewest components to go wrong. I can get $700 in rebates, and that significantly brings the price down--from $4,000 to $3,300. Viking has extended their warranty to three years, and every dealer I have talked with (as a part of the discussion of all different brands) has acknowledged that Viking had big problems in the past but is really doing better now.
I know some of you appliance gurus must have the answer to whether or not these rebates are recurring events or truly good opportunities.
