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.

Smart Buy, good price

marcosrosset 9/3/2021

We have substituted our 10 year old refrigerator for the Samsung RF18A5101SG/AA. As you may imagine, the upgrade is excellent. The new refrigerator space is optimized and the way the shelves are distributed it fits all our needs. The inside led lights are great and you experience a sensation of brightness, fresh and cleanliness. The fast temperature setting is very good and it gets really cold if you set it in such a way. We were originally concerned with the size of the freezer, but again this is a great surprise. The two drawers are more than enough and offers the depth you would require for most frozen food. We were able to store our frozen pizzas in a very easy and convenient way. Finally it looks really clean and smart and the operation is as quiet as a whisper. We are enjoying it very much and would recommend for anyone looking for a smart buy at a very reasonable price. One negative. We could not get the SmartApp to work with our apple phones. We will keep on trying or maybe wait for an upgrade of the App for IOS.

Stylish & Efficient

chellyp12 8/20/2021

Can you say excited. I have never had a new refrigerator and it is stylish, compact yet roomy. Just can't take my eyes off if it. It looks fabulous in my kitchen and is already saving me money. It was easy to set up a nice start to updating my kitchen. If you leave a door open a bell will ring to let you know. If you need to freeze something quickly you can set the freeze quick mode and just like that your item is frozen. You can use an app to manage. It is so easy to find what you need or stand and view because of the bright interior LED lighting. And the Black Stainless Steel Finish is fingerprint resistance. This is a good purchase. .

Awesome fridge

Ana032592 8/20/2021

The Samsung 17.5 cu. ft. Smart Counter Depth 3-Door French Door Refrigerator in Black Stainless Steel is lovely! I waited so long for it but so worth it. Love that I have so much space for my things, I am able to fit so many items. And the Like the led light on the fridge & freezer! I have the SmartThings app for all my Samsung appliances that I am slowly getting for my house. On the app I am able to add what items I have in refrigerator and dates so it can tell me if it's expire and also if the door is open is left open it beeps & app notifies me! I did have a cooling issues the first 2 weeks I got my fridge, but thankfully I just got it and Samsung sent a technician to replace the computer part in back because it was reaching to motor/ he said it's common with new model Samsung refrigerator and Samsung only requires them to replace it! Hopefully that doesn't happen anymore! That's the only thing I have bad about my refrigerator but I love it so much it cools so good now that it has been fixed. The color of my fridge is amazing and that I have so much space. I do recommend!

Simple and Elegant

munifr 8/20/2021

Another excellent Samsung products. Very elegant and highly functional, simple and stylish design. Easy to install even if you are not professional and works seamlessly with Smart things app with WiFi connectivity that allows full control of this Fridge right on the smart phone or tablet., this allows to use features like power cooling when you need it. Very quiet when it works and I can hardly hear the compressor working, it is also very fast to cool down what's inside it. Few colors to choose from which makes it very easy to fit in any kitchen, it is designed for a small family and does not have a huge space for tons of items which makes it the perfect size for small to medium size kitchens. The chambers inside are well designed and the ice making function is a plus. Highly recommended.

Repeatedly, randomly stops cooling

JoshF 8/14/2021

we just bought this refrigerator and had it delivered 3 weeks ago. since we got it, it has completely stopped cooling in both the fridge and freezer sections. the display will say that the fridge is at 37 degrees and the freezer is at 0 degrees, but everything is melted and warm. after unplugging and resetting, it will start cooling again, but this happens for no reason and with no warning. you just wake up and, surprise! all your food is ruined and your refrigerator has decided to stop refrigerating! this has happened to us 4 times in the last couple weeks.

Sleek and Cool

hyperblastrocks1 8/13/2021

This refrigerator sleek and good looking and won't show the finger prints, I can't say about the 10 year old one it replaced. Easy to setup and to use with the handless doors. The doors open wide and it has plenty of space for everything, Easy to put everything together just side things and use. The door alarm is a great feature, never have the door open again because the smart things app notify my phone. You also get to control the temperature with your phone with the app. The lights are bright and make everything easy to see. I am so glad I got this.

Fridge stopped cooling

Kmcg 7/20/2021

i had the fridge a week when it stopped cooling one day. electricity still running and still conncected to the app, it just stopped cooling. the digital monitor inside read 37 degrees f and the app also read that it was currently 37 degrees f; they also read that the freezer was 0 degrees f. however these were wrong as the fridge and freezer were now warm. after unplugging and re-connecting the fridge, it then reflected the true temps which were 62 degrees f and the device started cooling again. a hundred dollars of groceries spoiled because of this glitch.

Not Cooling

Tina 7/14/2021

i purchased the fridge from best buy on june 22nd, delivered on 24th. the fridge stop cooling 7 days later. it ruin all my food. i reset the fridge. it worked for 4 more days and stopped cooling again. all food ruin again. called samsung this past sunday, july 11th, they set a tech appt for the 15th. in the meantime, i have no way to cool my food. the temp is holding at 34 for the fridge and 0 for freezer, but the inside is a hot box about 70 degrees. i'm so upset with this product. i was trying to match my stove that i purchased from home depot but they did not have a fridge to fit my space so i was told to try best buy. at this point, i'm not satisfied with the product. i want the tech to pick it up and i will try another brand.
