Football Fans Prefer "Homegating" to Tailgating

September 23, 2015 1:15 am

Now that’s a home field advantage! According to a recent h.h. gregg survey, 70 percent of football fans would rather enjoy the game at home, or “homegate,” than actually attend the game. A quarter of football fans say they homegate at least four times each season.

When homegating, the majority of football fans (57 percent) place funnyman Will Ferrell at the top of their invite wish lists, followed by dear ol’ dad (34 percent), former football player and coach Mike Ditka (24 percent), former coach and ESPN analyst Jon Gruden and former football player and announcer Troy Aikman, according to the survey.

In addition, when asked which pro football legend most resembles their homegate, football fans selected William “The Refrigerator” Perry, because with “The Fridge,” it’s all about food. And the number one upgrade homegaters covet? A new grill.

Appliances: What to Buy and Where to Shop

September 23, 2015 1:15 am

Homeowners have spoken.

A recent J.D. Power study named the top appliance brands and retailers most popular with homeowners, chiefly based on attributes available on their respective websites. With a majority of consumers seeking information online before purchasing, website content, navigation, speed and design all played a vital role in the ranking.

According to the study, the top 10 appliance brands based on website satisfaction are:

1. GE Appliances
2. KitchenAid
3. Amana
4. Kenmore
5. Bosch
6. Maytag
7. Electrolux
8. LG
9. Samsung
10. Frigidaire

The top five appliance retailers based on website satisfaction are:

1. Lowe’s
2. Best Buy
3. The Home Depot
4. Sears
5. h.h. gregg

Per the study, homeowners place high value on product reviews and pricing when it comes to making an appliance purchase. More than half of appliance shoppers who experience a “less complicated” visit on a brand website “definitely will” consider purchasing other products by the brand.
