Which? Team

Whether you’re redesigning your kitchen or shopping for a new fridge freezer because your old one has broken down, a little research could save you hundreds of pounds.

Your fridge freezer is one appliance that has to be plugged in day and night, so buying wisely will not only save you money initially, but could also cut your energy bills. With new integrated, freestanding and American-style fridge freezers coming on to the market, there's plenty of competition between retailers and some good discounts on offer as they clear stock to make way for newer models.

But how do you spot a genuinely good deal? Not all price cuts are as attractive as they appear. Read on for our round-up of great fridge freezer deals this month – and how to find your own.

Fridge freezer sales in May 2022

We’ve scrutinised popular retailers’ offers to bring you this shortlist of deals. The fridge freezers we’ve selected are all decent models, but they might not be Best Buys. All are available at a reasonable discount, though. 

Don't forget to factor in delivery costs: some of these appliances are very large and might need a two-person delivery.

We'd also suggest checking if the product is in stock before ordering. Some electrical appliance retailers might still be experiencing supply problems or delivery issues. 

You won't see many fridges with an A rating any more, because of the fridge freezer energy label changes that happened in 2021. To get an efficient appliance, we recommend you look for a D class (at least) on the new energy labelling system.

Cheap fridge freezer deals under £600

Samsung RB29FWRNDBC freestanding fridge freezer, £429

Samsung RB29FWRNDBC freestanding fridge freezer
  • We like: Quiet and frost-free 
  • We don't like: Not as well insulated as some fridge freezers

This fridge freezer's fridge compartment is larger than the freezer, so it's likely to suit households that eat more fresh than frozen food. There's also less storage space in the door than you might expect, because the large 4.5-litre water dispenser takes up a lot of room. This means you might struggle to store enough bottles upright. 

There are three drawers in the freezer and it also has some useful extra features, including separate digital thermostats and a fast-freeze function, which adds a boost of cooling power during the freezing process to help ensure your groceries stay as fresh as possible.

We've seen this model on sale for well over £500, but we've spotted it on offer this month for just £429 from the Samsung store on Amazon.

How good is it at keeping food properly chilled? Read our full Samsung RB29FWRNDBC review to find out. 

Buy it now for £429 from the Samsung store on Amazon (temporarily out of stock).

Where to find deals on specific fridge freezer brands

Big high street and online retailers such as Amazon, AO.com, Argos, Currys and John Lewis tend to offer better deals than the manufacturers themselves.

To ensure you choose a model that you’re happy with, read our fridge freezer reviews. That way, you’ll avoid picking up a ‘bargain’ that turns out to be a dud.

Haier fridge freezer deals

If you’ve got your heart set on a multi-door or American fridge freezer, Haier makes a good selection and is widely stocked at stores including AO.com, Currys and John Lewis.

It’s a brand more associated with TVs than refrigeration, but Samsung’s extensive range of fridge freezers is available at high street and online-only stores including Amazon, AO.com, Argos and John Lewis.

Which fridge freezer features are worth paying extra for?

Beyond the basics, there are a few features that are worth paying for:

  • Quick-chill and fast-freeze functions help to lock in the nutrients so your food stays fresher for longer.
  • Adjustable door racks help you to arrange the door storage to make the best use of the space.
