When you say "appliances" do you mean like stoves, washer/dryers, etc., or do you mean electronics like wide-screens and sound systems?

For electronics I like Best Buy, for appliances I prefer the local "mom and pop" places that generally ahve the same pricing and better service. The other option is Best Buy or Home Depot or Lowe's. I won't buy from Appliance Direct because of their annoying commercials.

You can also check Craigs List, I've seen some almost brand new apliances on there for next to nothing. I bought a brand new (in the box) wine cooler that lists for $1200 for $400 on Craigs List.

For appliances, use craigslist, unless you want stainless, then you'll probably have to buy new.

Buy from the person who owns the appliances, not all the annoying middlemen advertising on there, they usually beat the appliances up before you get them.

I am a renter, so haven't bought large appliances, but you'll see lots of annoying commercials for "Appliances Direct" and "Scratch N Dent World." They seem reasonable.

Appliance Direct is awesome. We've furnished a few places from there and they always have excellent prices.

Also, a lot of the scratch and dent stuff is still under the manufacturer's warranty - you can call them up and they'll ship you replacements for the scratched/dented parts for next to nothing.

appliance direct and the sears outlet for "new" stuff, craigslist for used.

On both, if you have time and are patient, you will get great deals.

That's what I was going to say or Craigslist is a great source. I got my GE frige with water and ice maker from Appliance Direct for $700. It normally would cost $1500.
