      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

New Forum: New Appliance Deals

Recommended Posts

Samurai Appliance Repair Man

We're starting to get quite the collection of new appliance deals and offers from various retailers posted in the Kitchen and Laundry forums. To make it easier to find these deals and to keep the focus on repair in the other forums, I created a forum dedicated to just new appliance deals. All deals, all the time! ==> New Appliance Deals

Yes,sadly, appliances don't last as long as they used to...more so, certain brands / models.

Sometimes, after a number of years, it's smarter to replace an appliance rather than repairing.

maybe it should have it's own FORUM (first in the list)

since it's usually a HOT topic (limited time)

rather than buried at the bottom in Classifieds

Sponsorship, not yet. But I may be laying the groundwork for that with with I've done. Check it out: I made a new category in the Izakaya Tavern, "Buying a New or Used Appliance" which includes three forums, the first one of which is, "New Appliance Deals."

Awwite, lemme feel the love, yo! headgear3.gif
