Home Depot Uses LG Appliances To Advertise Deal That Excludes LG Appliances

If you look at all the LG appliances pictured in the Home Depot flier advertising savings for customers who buy multiple appliances, you might be confused by the fine print at the bottom of the image.

Yes, that is definitely an LG washer and dryer (see the PDF on Home Depot’s website), along with an LG refrigerator in the back, but in the fine print below the photo it clearly states, “Offer excludes GE Brands, LG Electronics, Whirlpool, Maytag Electrolux, and Frigidaire brand appliances.”

While this is sort of amusing, it does illustrate the fact that you always need to read the fine print on these sorts of sales, as not only does it exclude the very appliances shown in the ad, but it also eliminates several popular brands.
