As of 2015, microwaves can be purchased online at Home Depot, Best Buy, Sears Outlet and Lowe's. Sears Outlet allows offers to be made for price negotiation.
Sears Outlet is currently the only company that offers like-new and reconditioned/refurbished microwaves online. Pictures are available of all microwaves that are not new, with details of the condition.
Sears Outlet, Lowe's and Home Depot sell microwaves that can be purchased online for shipping, or ordered for pickup in store. Not all items are available for pickup in store, but items can be checked for local availability. Lowe's simplifies the local pickup option by offering a filter that only shows microwaves available at a specific location.
