South West Disaster Relief Kitchen and Laundry Package Rebate

Offer Expires: 3/22/2021 to 4/23/2021 Must be postmarked by: 5/23/2021

Receive up to a $200 rebate with purchase of qualifying Appliances valued $299 or more. Rebate form must be postmarked by 5/23/2021.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Good refrigerator with bottom freezer for size

anne8547 3/4/2021

There are limited options for refrigerators with a bottom freezer in this width. The refrigerator is a good size and good shelving. The freezer is very small and not easy to access drawers. It's a little noisy too.

IceBergMagic 2/13/2021

We love this fridge. It's very spacious, easy to clean and keeps all our food evenly cold. Absolutely in love with the freezer. The ice maker is game changer, no more flimsy ice trays and shortages of ice. You can't beat the price. You get a lot of bang for your buck!

Great Fridge

JJ5000 1/13/2021

I had a similar one a few years before when I lived in my old apartment. Later I sold it and moved to a new apartment, but it had an old style with freezer on top. I finally got this freezer bottom style. It's well lit and roomy inside and I like the shelves are all transparent so I can see anything if falls to inside the shelves, it saves my back and knees. Very happy with my purchase and hope to have this fridge for many years to come.

Missing the bells and whistles

C2It 1/6/2021

We like the fridge overall as it holds a lot for only a 30" compared to our previous one. However I'm disappointed that GE does not provide internal water dispenser for 30" and also has no butter tray on the door which we have been used to for many years. I also find the motor is a bit loud for a brand new fridge.

27Jan 12/4/2020

We are remodeling an old farmhouse and space is limited. Our GE refrigerator not only looks great but fits perfectly. I'd give a 5 star rating but I wish it had more freezer space, and for some reason our refrigerator door needs an extra good push to get it to close.

phd911 10/25/2020

So far we love this refrigerator! It looks fantastic and has lots of room inside. The sliding snack drawer is a great feature for allowing you to alter the space below it for your needs. Reversing the door was also very easy to do. Everything was taped and packaged well to prevent shifting and damage to the unit. Love the compartments and slide out bins in the freezer for organizing foods.
