Home appliances are a big investment, and they are often non-negotiable. Take for example a fridge freezer – it is an essential item in your kitchen, but there’s no denying that buying a new one is both costly and time-consuming.
With so much to consider, choosing the right one for your home can be difficult. But there’s nothing to fear as we’re on hand to offer advice. We’d recommend considering the capacity of the model – this is often somewhere between 200l and 600l, with larger products better suited to bigger households.
Similarly, it’s worth bearing in mind how you’d like the ratio between fridge and freezer space to be split – typically, models are 70:30, but there is also the option of 50:50, should you find yourself frequently freezing meals.
Should you be in need of some extra expert tips and tricks, the IndyBest fridge freezer buying guide covers all this and more. As for making sure it’s a less costly endeavour, we’re also here to help.
With a constant eye out for a good deal (including sales on laptops, TVs and mattresses), we’ve rounded up the best discounts and sales on leading fridge freezers. Read on for how you can save money on your next fridge freezer, and prepare to keep food fresher for longer in one of these top models.
How to get the cheapest deals on specific fridge freezer brands
The best places to find a stellar deal on fridge freezers tend to be retailers such as John Lewis & Partners, Currys PC World, AO, Argos and Amazon. These big wigs often offer better discounts than appliance manufacturers themselves.
While flash annual sales such as Amazon Prime Day or the John Lewis & Partners summer sale are great opportunities to find a bargain, some retailers have dedicated online deals pages for year-round savings on fridge freezers – John Lewis & Partners, AO, Very and Amazon all have such sections.

In the fridge, you’ll get to enjoy four adjustable shelves, a wine rack, two large salad crispers and five-door balconies, while the freezer has seven sections with three door balconies. Thanks to its total no frost technology, you’ll never need to manually defrost it either, as it circulates cold hair evenly throughout your fridge to prevent ice crystals from forming.

This large, energy-efficient model from Bosch would be fitting for larger families and busy kitchens. There’s a handy alarm that sounds if the door is left slightly ajar, while food and drink is said to stay fresh thanks to consistent temperatures maintained by the “MultiAirflow system”, which distributes cold air to every level of the fridge. Plus, you wont need to chip away at layers of ice to retrieve your frozen treats, as the “NoFrost” technology stops ice layers from building up.

Featuring a two-door and two-drawer design as well as cooling technology, this Hotpoint fridge is said to help keep your food fresher for longer. With technologies to keep bacteria at bay and fast temperature recovery once the door’s been opened, it also aims to minimise food waste. And thanks to the frost-free technology, you should never have to defrost your appliance again.
Hotpoint FFU3DX1 American-style frost-free fridge freezer: Was £669.99, now £589.99, Very.co.uk
This extra-large, two-door fridge has a capacity of 302l and, like the other products in this round-up, combines a fridge and freezer for extra convenience. With the brand’s signature precision temperature control, cool air is distributed throughout the fridge to create a constant temperature, which the brand says will keep food fresh for longer. It also features a holiday setting that means it will save energy while you’re away.
LG GSL761PZXV freestanding 70/30 American fridge freezer: Was £1,199, now £949, Johnlewis.com
Ideal for large households, this fridge freezer from LG offers a huge 601l of storage space, helping to keep your weekly shop organised and fresh. It of course has a water and ice dispenser and is finished in sleek stainless steel. The brand also claims that it’s frost-free, meaning there will be no need to manually defrost it. It’s an absolute steal right now for £949.
Where we think this fridge freezer excels is the fact the freezer is a pull-out drawer, which makes for much easier storage than your usual door and shelves system. It has an automated ice maker, making it perfect if you frequently host friends and loved ones. It also has a power cool function that lets you rapidly lower the conditions inside. This is also a great pick if you’re looking for something a little narrower than an American-style fridge freezer. What’s more, it comes with five-year warranty, should anything happen to it.
Grundig GKNG1682N 60/40 fridge freezer: Was £499.98, now £379.98, Currys.co.uk
There is £100 to be saved on this fridge freezer, which is ideal for small households. The air flow cooling technology makes sure that cool air is circulated and an even temperature is achieved, keeping food fresher for longer. The no-frost system only adds to its appeal because it means you’re unlikely to experience any build-up of ice.
