To help you score the best deal on a refrigerator this Cyber Monday, we’ve combed through dozens from major retailers including Best Buy, Costco, Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Sears.

So far, deep discounts on top-performing models are few and far between.

Last year, in advance of Black Friday, we reviewed 25 fridges discounted across major retailers. This year we've pinpointed only a handful that stand out in our rigorous lab tests.

Below, our picks for the best Cyber Monday refrigerator deals, organized in alphabetical order by fridge configuration. CR members can click each model name to see detailed ratings and reviews.

French-Door Refrigerators

GE French-Door Refrigerator

The 33-inch GE GWE19JSLSS is an affordable French-door that offers superb performance in our temperature tests. In fact, its only real flaw is that it’s a bit of an energy hog. If you can look past that, this fridge won’t disappoint. It comes in a stainless steel finish with an icemaker, spillproof shelves, a built-in water filter, and uniquely adjustable shelves that you can raise and lower without removing food.

LG French-Door Refrigerator

Pining for a French-door but worry about the price? The LG LFCS22520S is a great option. This 30-inch model costs less than many side-by-sides and bottom-freezers. It also performs quite well in our temperature tests and runs very quietly. The stainless steel fridge has an icemaker, half shelves for better organization, spillproof shelves, and digital controls.

Side-by-Side Refrigerators

LG Side-by-Side Refrigerator

The LG LSXS26326S is a CR Best Buy pick thanks to its winning combination of performance and value. It performs very well in all of our lab tests, and according to our exclusive member survey, LG side-by-sides have decent reliability, too. This 36-inch model features dual evaporators (to prevent air and odors from mixing between the fridge and freezer), a through-the-door water/ice dispenser, and a stainless steel finish.

Kenmore Side-by-Side Refrigerator

Looking for a stylish stainless steel side-by-side? This 36-inch model offers strong performance in our temperature tests and is quite energy-efficient. The only downside is that it doesn’t offer many features compared with the competition. Aside from its finish, this fridge’s only notable feature is a through-the-door water/ice dispenser. But if you’re looking only for the basics, it will serve you well.

Top-Freezer Refrigerators

Kenmore Top-Freezer Refrigerator

For a top-tier top-freezer that won’t break the bank, consider the Kenmore 79433, which is currently nearly half off at Sears—a huge markdown. This 33-inch model is very energy-efficient and quiet, but it's more susceptible to hot and cold spots than competing models. Still, this Kenmore is a good deal for the money and features an internal water dispenser, stainless steel finish, spillproof shelves, and digital controls.
