GE Upgrade Your Finish And Save Rebate

Offer Expires: 8/1/2018 to 9/12/2018 Must be postmarked by: 11/12/2018

Enjoy exclusive rebate savings with purchase of qualifying GE appliances. Rebate form must be postmarked by 11/12/2018.

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.

Absolutely Love this GE Refrigerator

8/6/2018

This refrigerator offers so much room. The ice maker is in the door which allows more refrigerator space. Although the ice maker is a bit smaller than others GE offers a second ice maker that is placed in the freezer drawer. Even with the extra ice maker in the freezer there is still enough space for frozen items. It is quite except for when the door/s gets left open. It chimes to let you know. I LOVE this feature It is very sturdy and heavy duty. The color finish is versatile matching any interior wall color cabinet finish and counter top. The slate finish never seems to show finger prints. Purchase this refrigerator and you wont be sorry

Never buy an appliance that only offers a 1 year

5/15/2018

I should have had an alarm go off when this fridge and other GE appliances show a one year warranty. If a company believes in a product it would offer a longer warranty. I purchased my fridge along with a washer and drier for our new home. We only occupy our home part of the year. Needless to say we come home and our fridge water dispenser drips. Now I see in reviews this is common for this model. As everyone knows you pay to have someone come out to diagnose. You pay. Then who knows when parts are in. Then you pay again. Oh and my washer bounces all around when it spins gfd45gsskww that is also less then one month past the yearly warranty. I will never by GE again. They use to be in my opinion the best. Now they are a never buy product. If they read reviews they know the problems. If they cared the problem would be fixed. If they knew their products were good they would offer a longer warranty.

This fridge has all the space you will ever need We just moved and needed to replace the existing fridge. We liked the look and feature of the GE Slate line and this fridge was it. The French door style make the freezer easier to use without having frozen food falling out all the time. The exact temp settings mean we never have to guess what the temp is set for. Overall we love it.

Love my new fridge

5/14/2018

Installed on April 25 2018. Love the amount of room the lighting is amazing. I paid to add the additional ice maker. Really glad I did since the ice maker is not made for large families. I purchased a SLATE color and looks amazing with my cabinets. The shelves moved easily so I was able to put large items on one side. Had an older fridge so it runs much quieter than my old one.

More Space Than Ever

5/5/2018

We love this fridge/freezer more than anything weve ever owned. It has so much space available that I was able to do away with our second fridge in the garage. The filter with our well water makes the most delicious ice and water I can get. Everyone loves the color tone with our white cabinets. The handy alarm that goes off when someone leaves the door open has saved hundreds of dollars in lost products.

Has only been a couple weeks

5/5/2018

It has only been a couple of weeks so far. The fridge has a lot of room and and is operating as expected. Only complaint is water and ice dispenser. The water continues to drip after releasing to stop it and there is no tray beneath to catch it. This to me is a poor design. Also the ice occasionally has a wild ice cube that will come out sideways and miss the cup.

Pros and cons

4/19/2018

I love the slate finish it does not show fingerprints food grime or anything. I have had it 2 months and have wiped it off once but not because it was dirty but because I just felt like it was time to do it. The stainless steel handles however are a different story. I have to constantly wipe them off with stainless steel wipes. Glad its only the handles and doesnt take up too much time. Also I would like it better if it had the adjustable shelf that you can shorten the length of it to give more room for taller items in your fridge besides just in the door. My previous Sears fridge had this feature and I used it all the time. Also the freezer door does not seem to close very smoothly...maybe a little rougher than normal but not extreme.
