We need to replace a refrigerator and do know about the star energy rebate. After checking Kmart, Gallows Bay Appliances, Oscars, and the place across from Plaza Extra....they seem overly expensive for a simple no frills refrig.

Has anyone found a reasonably priced refrig here?!! Thanks.

I have replaced several fridges in units in the last year, and you have HIT all the places to buy, except the small PX located at the national Guard facility. You would need to have a military ID with you, or a friend to take you on. Right now, no rebates under energy offer at PX, they have a few and are good deals.

If you dont have ID to get on, email me you number and I will discuss your options.

Note, when you decide on where to buy, factor in the value if you need service, so ask when you looking, do you service what you sell????

Good luck

This is great, I didn't know there was a PX on STX.

Inn - what kind of departments does this one have? It says it's a class 6 on the website, but I have no idea what that means

We have bought appliances from all of the above (except the PX), and you just have to shop what they have at the moment and/or on sale, etc.

Something to consider about the energy rebate...Are they even still offering it? In order to qualify for a rebate you must be replacing an older non-energy star appliance. You have to get a certificate of some sort from the new appliance dealer, then take that and the old appliance to some branch of Waste Management, then to the rebate office in F'sted. (if on STX). Sorry to be a little vague, but it's been a while since we did it (tried to do it).

We bought a stove from Carlos who did not give us the necessary papers (we didn't know to ask). Carlos also offered to take away the old stove for about $20, so we did that. Oops! No old stove to turn in, no proof of how they disposed of it,... no rebate.

We have bought smaller appliances, like window A/C's, and I don't remember having to prove how we disposed of the old ones, or even that we were replacing an old one. So...it may just be larger appliances.

Just do be aware to ask all the questions about how to get the rebate, and sorry to say, the clerks working in some of these stores don't have a clue. Ask the owners of the stores.

Juanita, I got my Energy Star rebate on my fridge 2 years ago without jumping through those hoops. Carlos just gave me the form, I filled it out along and sent in the receipt via mail and my check arrived a few months later.

After rebate my fridge was the EXACT same price as it was at Fry's in Las Vegas for the same model.

Juanita is right(call me,340-201-4537 John as I can advise you how to get possibly get energy rebate for stove already purchased)

I just purchased a fridge 3 weeks ago and will be receiving the rebate.

Carlos gave me the paperwork, and advised I needed to show proof I was replacing. I contacted energy office who advised me of the following:

(1) The old one would be disposed of by a vendor of the ENERGY office, ie Oscar picked up the old one as the energy office coordinated this and Oscar provided documents to Energy office.

(2) I submitted paperwork to energy office , and the energy office stamped it and started the process for rebate.

Class 6 I believe means alcohol is also sold at the PX, ie the have a small section for alcohol, to include CRUZAN RUM.

haha nice. does it have all the other normal sections you'd find at a PX (like a mini wal-mart) do they have groceries at that location? I'm sure well check it out in person in a few months when we're on island.

AAFES/BX/PX REFER TO A CLASS VI to include Alcohol sales for off premise consumption. don't get excited about the PX on STX/STT they are very very small and limited.

I figured they were small, but hopeful enough if they carried large appliances.

I bought a fridge and washing machine last year--I wasn't replacing anything and I still got the rebate. All I did to get the rebate was take my receipt and yellow energy star tag to the office in Frederiksted. I filled out a form, the lady processed it and I got the rebate about 4 months later (which she had told me to expect).

Eric - the PX here is smaller than most stateside gas stations so don't get too excited. It is nice to have it as an option but it's not a place you'd do weekly shopping. There are a couple of isles of non-perishable items & a cooler with drinks. The are a couple isles of general household & automotive stuff and then some larger items plus some electronics. The manager there is great and anything you find on the AAFES website he will order for you (no shipping charges unless it's oversized/weight!). The downside is you wait until there is space in the container for it to ship (once it took 2 weeks & once it was 2 months.) You do need military ID for entry & the special orders.
