Trying to help out a family member with a new refrigerator. Where can I find quality for modest $$$?
My sister has fallen on some tough times recently and is finally getting her life back in order. She just recently moved into a remodeled apartment. This place is so much nicer for her and my two nephews and niece but it didn't come with any appliances. The rest of my family has been trying to help out where possible.
The highest priority in my mind is a refrigerator. I did a quick look at Sears, HD, Lowes, Best Buy, HH Gregg, and some local appliance stores but the cheapest I have found is around $1000 for a very basic refrigerator. Is there a source I have overlooked? I though about garage sale but am hesitant as whatever I pickup I'm realistically going to own. Meaning if I buy a used one and it craps out in a few months I'll end up having to deal with repairing/replacing it (not by obligation but by my choice). Also given she is on a budget, a newer model is desirable to minimize utility costs. Any suggestions and insights are appreciated.
