Don’t buy a new washing machine, refrigerator, or air conditioner in California until April 22nd (Earth Day)!
If your washing machine, refrigerator, or air conditioner has bit the dust, or is about to, you should wait to purchase a new one on April 22, 2010 through May 23, 2010.
As we’ve discussed here, here, and here, and tweeted about here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, The US government has set aside $300,000,000 for a rebate program similar to the Cash For Clunkers program last year called Cash For Appliances.
Details for the program in California have been sketchy until yesterday. On its official website Cash4Appliances.org, it was announced that rebates will be available for Californians who purchase a washer, refrigerator, or air conditioner between April 22, 2010 (Earth Day) through May 23, 2010, and recycle their old one through a certified recycler. The rebate applicant must be a California residential consumer and must purchase an eligible appliance that meets the state’s efficiency requirements. The purchased appliance must replace an existing, working appliance.
Rebates are first-come, first-serve and will be processed as received until funds are depleted. Rebate applications must be postmarked by June 25, 2010.
Consumers who take advantage of this program can receive $200 back for a qualified refrigerator, $100 back for a qualified clothes washer, and $50 back for a qualified room air conditioner!
Customers will receive their rebates within four to six weeks if the rebate claim is complete. A complete claim contains the filled out and signed rebate claim form with appliance serial number, certificate of recycled appliance, a copy of utility bill (to verify California residential address), and a copy of the sales receipt.
Additionally, the California Cash For Appliances rebates can be combined with other manufacturer, retailer, or utility company rebates! Like these.
Feder’s Outlet has several qualifying models in stock for pennies on the dollar like this and this, and Feder’s Distributors has most of the qualifying room air conditioners in-stock all the time for already the best prices in the country!
