If you are lucky, there is a Sears Appliance Outlet near you. They have "damaged" (usually very minor cosmetic) appliances that are still new and covered by the manufacturer's warranty. I first expected major damage and little discount but found very minor damage (had to have them point out the "dent" on my washer and dryer) and major discount from the cost of new. Selection is heavily weighted towards Kenmore but it is a great way to get high-end appliances at entry level prices.

Ooooh, I LOVE Sears Scratch-n-Dent!! We got our refrigerator from them. It was originally $1200, but it had a huge visible scratch on the side, so it was marked down to $599. Our kitchen is designed so that the fridge slides into a cubby hole. Little more than half price for a fridge with a scratch that will never be seen anyway??!! WooHoo!!
