REMINDER ENDS FRIDAY: Up to 45% OFF Select Refrigerator Water Filters

Bookmark and Share

We’ve heard from several of you (love it!!!) about the savings you made on your refrigerator water filters through this recent offer. In case you missed it or forgot, we are re-posting this as a reminder that this deal ends this Friday…  

::

Here’s a great deal if that pesky time-to-change-your-water-filter light is blinking on your refrigerator (or about to be):

Once again, we are overdue for replacing the water filters on our refrigerator, so it was nice to discover that through January 31st, Amazon is giving an extra 20% OFF refrigerator filter replacements for select Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Kenmore,  and Maytag refrigerators.  That savings is on top of the current discounted price you’ll see from Amazon, bringing some of the filters to 45% OFF the retail price you would normally pay.

For my purchase, that meant I received from Amazon, 2 Water Filters for more than 35% off the price of the same filters we used to purchase from Sears.  Depending on your filter model, you might save up to 45% off the retail price.

Secret Sauce Buying Tip: Do note, that you won’t see the extra 20% discount subtracted from the selling price until you get to the final “Review Your Order”/Order Summary confirmation page (which is the last page you’ll see after you input your shipping and credit card details) ~ right before you actually approve the order to be placed.  It will look something like this (click picture to make it bigger):

Go here to view all the water filters that qualify for the extra 20% OFF sale.  The extra savings sale does expire January 31, 2014.

Enjoy and Share!    :)
