Should you buy a washing machine this EOFY sales time?
The end of financial year is a good time to look out for sales in the major appliances space, including for the beloved washing machine. Washers are a long-term investment, so finding a bargain on the higher-end models is always a plus. Typically the higher-end models have increased energy and water efficiency ratings. If your current washer isn’t equipped with all the features you require or isn’t the right capacity, you might like to consider investing in a new one when prices are a little lower. When it comes to sales times, it’s important not to get too carried away, spending money when you don’t really need to. But if you need a new washing machine now, EOFY could be the perfect time to bag a bargain. While you’re here, why not also check out our online ratings, to see how the brands above compare.
