When I, way back in May ordered an air conditioner
Small appliances like blenders, microwaves and toaster ovens used to be a little sketchy to buy on the web and yet know all of those plus something as large as Whirlpool appliances like dishwashers and washing machines could potentially be purchased sight unseen. When I buy a major appliance I want to know two things is it a brand I can trust and will it be covered if something goes wrong that is clearly not my fault. Most places on the web where you can buy major appliances now go out of their way to make an easy exchange for damaged or malfunctioning appliances. It is the new commerce on the web. Safer and more effective. This is not some wild west scenario where faceless individuals are shipping a clunky old washer dryer to your home in an insecure cardboard box. These are legit businesses building up clientele on the net with little overhead and appropriately lowered prices.
In these times the less time I spend at the mall the better. I used to enjoy shopping but the efficiency of shopping for everything online has made me feel like there are so much more valuable ways I could be spending my time than trolling around department stores trying to find a great deal on Maytag appliances. With everything I need at my finger tips including major appliances I am having a real problem seeing what the value in shopping outside of my home is. Sure you get to see whatever the washer dryer looks like but does that give you any more insight than a glance over at product reviews from a number of different sources. It is not like I get to take a General Electric dishwasher for a test spin.
