Coupon deal: Extra $25 off appliance warehouse sale

November 11, 2010

When we price appliances at their lowest prices of the year, hundreds of those already below cost, I call that a pretty good deal.

When we offer our Facebook fans a chance to save another $25 on top of the pretty good deal to be found at our Extreme Warehouse Sale this Saturday and Sunday, I call that impossible to pass up.

Like us on Facebook, and you’ll find our Coupon Giveaway Event on our wall. Our fans who RSVP for that event will get a message tomorrow (Friday) with a link to a $25 coupon to print out and use on an order $500 and up either Saturday or Sunday.

HOW TO: Shop the Warners’ Stellian Warehouse Sale like a pro

November 9, 2010

OK, so it’s now the third time I’ve used this blog, but why reinvent the wheel? These tips remain relevant for the Warners’ Stellian Extreme Warehouse Sale 2010. Measure twice and cut once, people.

Here are some Extreme Warehouse Sale pros, lined up before the doors open.

What is it with us Midwesterners and our deal-bragging? You know: upon receiving a compliment we gloat about the gasp-worthy low price we got it for, unsolicited. Perhaps it’s because we fancy ourselves pro deal hunters.

But our Extreme Warehouse Sale 2010 this Saturday and Sunday is no Macy’s clearance rack. I’m talkin’ big-ticket items at huge discounts: you need to prepare a bit. The savings are so hot, all sales are final.

Luckily for you, I’ve compiled the secrets of the pros — tips that will prepare any appliance rookie for the big league.

Before the sale

Don't be a fool; Use this tool.

Measure your space
Don’t learn the hard way: there is no “standard” in appliance sizes. Use a measuring tape on the available space — not the existing appliance — and write down dimensions to bring to the sale.

Also — and this is HUGE — measure the width of the doorways and staircases the appliance will need to travel through. Some door frames can be removed, but it’s often that someone buys a washer only to find it doesn’t fit down her narrow basement staircase.

Know your fuel type
This might seem obvious if you’re buying a cooking appliance like a range or cooktop (is it flat, coiled or does it have grates? Duh.). But you should double-check whether you have a gas or electric hookup when buying a dryer or oven.

Consider your hinges
For example, some refrigerators on sale will be left hinge only. Wouldn’t it be terrible to find a great deal on a fridge only to get it home and not be able to open it? Also know what side you want the hinges on a front-load washer and any type of dryer, in case there’s an option.

Do some research
We’ll have more than 2,000 appliances available at the start of the sale, so have something in mind to avoid frustration. The best tip? Know what you like and don’t like about your existing model. Check out our website for more ideas on what features are important to you.

Get preapproved
You MUST pay for your purchase at the time of sale, though we certainly have financing options to help you pay. Save time by getting approved online at home. Just make sure to bring in your approval slip with your new account number for our files.

Also, even if you’re financing the purchase, you must pay the sales tax at the time of sale.

The day of the sale

744336_pick-upBring a hauling vehicle
Usually, we offer free delivery on purchases $499 and above, but this sale is anything but usual. Our warehouse is full of products, so we encourage customers to take their purchases with them the day of the sale. We’ll help you load it up and everything.

If you do choose to have it delivered, it’s $75 and you must take delivery within 14 days.

Know your schedule
We’ll arrange for delivery and any installation for built-in appliances (available for additional charges) at the time of sale. We’ll call you the day before the delivery with an AM/PM estimate and our crew can call you before they arrive if you need to meet them at your house.

We do everything we can to keep the warehouse safe and the process efficient for our customers. Help us out!

Pack a stroller
Our warehouse is a warehouse. It’s clean and safe, but it’s also big and crowded and without a play area. Strollers work well to keep small children nearby when you’re shopping the selection.

Print any coupons
Like  Warners’ Stellian on Facebook and RSVP to our Coupon Giveaway event to get a coupon good for $25 off an Extreme sale order $500 and over. We’ll also be giving away coupons on Twitter, so follow us and watch for details. .

After the sale

Receive delivery/install time estimate
You’ll receive a call with an AM/PM estimate the day before your scheduled delivery and/or install.

Apply for rebates
You could qualify for even more savings by rebate. Once you receive your product, you can fill in the serial number (the delivery crew can help you locate this) on your rebate forms and submit them promptly, as they expire.

1139528_communicate_4Don’t waste your investment because you lack product knowledge.

Read your manual
Knowing your new product can help you save time and improve the quality of your cooking and cleaning. Stow it somewhere memorable to refer to for troubleshooting and general operation questions.

Don’t ignore accessories

If you get a dishwasher, buy rinse aid to help dry your dishes. If you buy a smooth-top electric range, you’ll want cooktop cleaner to keep it looking new. The water filter in your fridge will need to be replaced every six to 12 months. And please, for the sake of your breathing, don’t overstuff your vacuum bags!

Visit my blog
I attack the FAQs plaguing our industry. Hard-hitting issues like, Troubleshoot (almost) any dishwasher problems and HOW TO: change a refrigerator water filter. It’s also an easy way to reach me if you need help. Plus, you’ll be the first to know about the next Extreme Sale!

Warners’ Stellian Warehouse Sale Fall 2010

November 8, 2010

It's all hands on deck this week

It’s most wonderful time of the year…Extreme Warehouse Sale time!

(Normally, I wouldn’t use exclamation points in this blog, but it’s pretty much appliance Christmas right now.)

In case you’ve never been, here are five things about the Warners’ Stellian Extreme Warehouse Sale you need to know.

1. Thousands of deals, hundreds of appliances below cost

We PACK the floor of our warehouse with deals — including brands that “never go on sale.” All items come with full factory warranty. Usually we deliver for free with purchases $499 and up, but this isn’t your usual appliance purchase. Delivery is $75 to the metro area, so take your purchase with you for maximum savings (we deliver to other areas for an additional fee). Professional installation is available for built-in items.

2. Next weekend, two days only
Saturday, Nov. 13 from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 14 from 10 to 5

3. It’s called a warehouse sale for a reason
Because that’s the ONLY place you’ll find these deals:

Warners’ Stellian’s St. Paul Warehouse, approximately 1 mile north of 94 off Dale Street

4. You’re in good company
Each Extreme Warehouse Sale, we get thousands of people through our doors. Last sale, we counted about 3,300 “groups” (we don’t count people individually because people usually make purchases as a family/couple). For our part, we’ll have about 120 staff on hand to help you select the right product, check out, load your purchases into your car, etc.

5. No other sale like it
We prepare half the year for this sale, and it’s been so successful that manufacturers have gotten behind it and helped us offer deals worth getting excited about. The offers are hot because we not only offer closeout appliances, floor models, scratch and dent items and discontinued models, we now make special buys specifically for the sale — some even new, in-the-box.

Bonus: RSVP for our Coupon Giveaway on Facebook (you already “Like” us, right?) for exclusive savings.
