Would you buy a floor model fridge?

Researched a new bottom-freezer fridge. Samsung has a model that they are replacing with a newer version - so the older one has been discounted. Best Buy, ABT etc.

Went to my local Best Buy, ready to purchase and they only had the floor model. This unit is regularly $2,999. National reduction to $1,999.

BB will sell me the floor model for $1550. No scratches or dents.

WWYD?

I would, but only if it has full warranty especially Samsung.

Yes, as xc60 suggests, just confirm that it has the full warranty from Samsung.

Also, as an FYI, I got a ding-and-dent floor model frig. But, they replaced the dented door for me. It is like new, with the full warranty. And I still got the floor model, ding-and-dent price. Sometimes being willing to over look a cosmetic defect can really pay off. They do want to move out these older models.

Also, check to see if the frig is listed on eBay. I just had a place match the ebay discount on a dw, which was lower than the store's listed clearance price. Again, full manufacturer warranty.

It never hurts to ask for additional discounts,especially if they know you are a serious buyer. Don't forget: free delivery, haul away.... Ask for it all.

We did. When a local retailer was going out of business, we bought a floor model bottom-freezer refrigerator at a very substantial discount. The retailer went into Chapter 7 bankruptcy two weeks later, so an extended warranty was not a good idea.

That was the spring of 1995. That refrigerator is still going strong today.

One data point.
