WTF...they are super exepensive on Craigslist, nothing less than $175.00 in my area.
Good point!I was having the same problem, but I waited it out a little longer, and got a STEAL of a deal. Energy star full size, auto defrost standup for $80 on CL. It took some patience. Months of patience, actually. I bought a smaller chest freezer new in the meantime.
Look for "MUST GO TODAY" posts, a lot of times when people are moving and can't take it with them, they're a lot more willing to negotiate price and get what they can for it.
I STRONGLY advise going only auto defrost. Manual is a pain in the butt.
