Use code JUNEHD for $10 off bringing it to $168!

Wouldn't a price match from Lowes be better since they will beat it by 10% according to their pricing policy? That makes the bottom line $160.20. Home Depot is reducing the prices for a sale but it's not a % off sale.

Is this a pretty good one to have...will it have space for a fermenter and a soda keg?

Does anyone both with the extended warranties considering the compressor will come on more often?

I'm still seeing the $229 on their website and was told by a lady named Karen (via Lowe's chat), that the $229 price was the "sales price". She did tell me she would match the sale price offered by Home Depot.

I think I'll just get mine at HD. Besides, my Lowe's is out of stock.

Lowe's and most other companies with price matching policies don't typically cover online coupons in the price they'll match.

I don't know if they would have that freezer as part of their hard copy flyer or not - it may just say up to $xxx off on appliances. So you may be right - they would only match...then it comes down to preference because there is no additional savings. But if you have a Chase Freedom card you get 5% bonus on your rewards if you buy it before the end of June.

Is this a good deal for this freezer though - as a fermentation and keezer type storage?


Does anyone get warranties for their freezers? Square Trade will cover it for 3 yrs for $28 compared to $50 from HD for 3 yrs.

I bought mine earlier this morning. It was out of stock, but I still got the sales price. I should get it by Thursday.


Now, got to figure out how to tell the wife as she'll be home that day. :evil grin:

Well I went over to Lowe's this evening and they price matched the $178 from HD and then took off another 10%. So it was $160.20 + tax which gave me a bottom line total of $169.81. Not as cheap as another poster but I'm quite happy with the total. It's expected to be delivered around July 5th or so. They did not have any in stock although their website said they had one locally. Gotta love inventory issues.

This looks like a fantastic thread for keezers. I am starting to look for something and was hoping to get some advice. My plan is to find a chest freezer that can fit one 1/2 barrel keg of "crappy" beer for my wife, and still have room for 2-4 corneys. Does anyone have specific suggestions/brands that they like that would fit the bill? I'm wondering If I just need to make some cardboard cutouts and go look around.

Thanks!
