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.

When do you need it? If you would install it immediately, go ahead. I haven't seen my Electrolux range as cheap again as when I bought it. I thought I was about 3 months from installing. Now, 16 months later, I'm about still 2 months from installing (and warranty is over).

On many things, the sales return half a dozen times a year.

Fwiw, we just ordered our appliances tonight to arch sale before end of the year, and the sales guy indicated our warranties would not start until after installation. - they are holding the appliances there until we are ready for them

Thanks much for the tips.
