Ariston Carnival Sale

All along I have been eyeing an Electrolux built-in oven. So when I missed their year-end sale a couple of weeks back, I was pretty sad. Their new units at normal retail prices is beyond my budget, so I started shopping around for a Fagor or a Rinnai instead.

Electrolux ovens retail at about RM3,500 and above. Whereas for a Fagor or a Rinnai, you may be able to get a new unit at the range of Rm2,200. With some discounts and bargaining, it is pretty easy to get one at RM1,800 as well. Never did I try even going close to a Ariston.

I saw the notice for Ariston Carnival Sale in the local newspapers and decided not to go at first. But last Saturday, we happen to have an appointment with a kitchen cabinet designer at Kota Damansara and then it striked my mind that Ariston's head office is at the same area as well! I did not have any hope of purchasing anything there or even think there would be any units left of the built-in ovens but I was in for a pleasant surprise!

I managed to spot 2 units of display units being offered at 40% discount! Ariston normally retails at more than Rm4,000 each and with nearly half the price, even a display unit looks exciting to me! Just to try my luck, I started to bargain for a better price and guess what - I ended up with almost a 50% discount and for a BRAND NEW MODEL & BRAND NEW UNIT! Gosh! I was jumping up & down inside my heart but dare not show the salesman lah that I was behaving like a monkey hahahaha.
