I purchased a refrigerator, Range, and microwave on Monday from Lowes.

Samsung French Door refrigerator (RF263AEBP) with ice maker without the through the door option and no water dispenser. This thing is huge (25.8 cu. ft.), yet it uses a mere 462 Kwh per year. Our old refrigerator used around 900 Kwh per year. That should save us around $40 per year on our electricity bill. Retail $1499

We decided on the top of the line GE Profile Free standing electric range (PB978DPBB). It has two ovens, an internal meat thermometer, and a griddle feature. Our current 1979 vintage oven is down to just one working burner. Retail $1949

And a GE Profile Microwave. Retail $249

The total retail price would have been around $3724. The cheapest I could find it online was $3319 (with free shipping). I ended up paying around $3240 with tax and free delivery using the Lowes Price match. It was a bit of a hassle, but worth it for the savings. The first time I showed up the clerk didn't want to give me the cheaper price because I didn't have proof. I showed up again on Saturday with proof, but they couldn't order the range, so I had to show up again on Monday.

It will take several weeks for the range to show up since it's a special order, so they are holding the other appliances and will deliver them together.
