Buying New Appliances?

Then hold off another couple of months if you can.

Texas will offer a mail-in rebate program between April 16 and April 25 for consumers who purchase certain energy efficient household appliances to replace the same type of old appliance that’s functional. This is sort of the appliance version of the 'cash for clunkers' program.
You'll be able to reserve an appliance rebate around April 2, 2010. After the reserved mail-in rebates are awarded, any remaining funds will be rebated to consumers on a first-come, first-served basis. Shoppers will be limited to two rebates per household.
Rebates will range from $185 for a dishwasher to $1,675 for a heat pump. I'd look for appliance retailers to offer some nice sales during this time period as well.

Of course, if your dishwasher breaks down (like mine did) ... you may not be able to wait for the rebate program. Sometimes timing is more important.
