Someone stole our washer and dryer.
Well, sort of. Sherry got a call today from our now-former-best-friend Robert at Lowe’s who, if you recall, had scored us a great deal on some appliances a couple weeks ago. Robert’s news: They accidentally sold our washer and dryer.
Now that that’s out of my system I’ll continue. Apparently, some mastermind at Lowe’s delivered our spankin’ new Whirlpool appliances to a family that had actually bought the floor models at a discount. Lucky family, eh? Since Lowe’s can’t get ours back AND they were the only ones left in stock in Richmond, what do we get stuck with – you guessed it – the floor models.
I’ll admit it’s not the end of the world. We still get them delivered on Monday. We’re still getting the models that fit in our nook. The dishwasher is still coming all sparky new. And they’re giving us the 10% floor model discount off both the washer and dryer, saving us another $125 which brings our total laundry appliance discount to almost $500.
The bad news is that the floor model washer apparently has a scratch on the top (which we’re not sure if we even mind since we talked about putting a counter on top of them anyway). When they come on Monday we’ll see if there’s anything else decidedly “I’ve been touched by hundreds of shoppers” about them. But I think we can live with one scratch, and the added discount is nothing to complain about.
But I’m taking that point back from Lowe’s.
