Yes, but... since many products' prices change frequently, checking the price history of what you're planning to buy on CamelCamelCamel.com or PriceSpy will tell you whether the savings are real or not. These sites show you whether a price is likely to re-occur.

Is fridge or freezer I like right for my kitchen?
Before you buy in a rush, desperate to score that brilliant deal, check you've got an appliance in the right size and configuration. Always consider the space you have available, too. A side-by-side fridge-freezer may look magnificent in the brochure, but will overwhelm small kitchens. A slender fridge-on-top, freezer-at-the-bottom model is best for compact rooms, and if you don’t freeze much, a tall fridge with a single freezer compartment will suffice.
For those who enjoy their wine, a bottle rack is beneficial, and for those who store enough sauces and condiments to run their own café, extra door storage would be most useful. Consider integrated fridges and freezers, too – these are ideal for both small kitchens and ones you want to look completely streamlined.
It's also worth thinking about its interior capacity. Some, like Doctor Who’s TARDIS, are bigger than they appear on the outside, so be mindful of the litre capacity, as being stuck with a fridge or freezer that’s smaller than you need is an expensive mistake.
Other fridge or freezer features to look out for
If you just want a fridge to store your food in and that's it, then the majority of fridges and freezers will suffice. However, look out for models with a water dispenser, an ice dispenser, and even smart appliances, complete with built-in Wi-Fi and cameras. Don't forget to look out for your new fridge or freezer's energy rating, too.
You should also note the noise output in decibels. If you're looking to store the product in a garage or annexe, it's not as much of a problem, but if yours is an open plan kitchen diner and living space, be sure to go for an fridge or freezer which won't disturb your downtime.
