And I think the appliances made nowadays are more effective along with being efficient. so we definitely you know, the way they're designed like the LED lights instead of incandescent."

    Greg Benigno and his wife don't need a refrigerator or washer now, but they came to look around anyway.

    "It's no difference in look or appeal, obviously the refrigerators now look a lot different than they did 15 years ago," said Sears store manager Mike Willis.

    The program is first come, first serve as each county has a limited amount of money for the rebate program.
