Countertops, Dishwasher, and Faucet

Granite counters from Costco were a splurge at $3,600 (with installation), but a $200 rebate lessened the blow. Augie saved $450 on the cost of a new subway tile backsplash (just $136 for 20 square feet at Lowe’s) by doing the installation himself, following a step- by-step video on The brushed-nickel faucet, found for $150—30 percent off its $220 retail price—is by Water Ridge. It complements a new Blanco sink and a stainless-steel LG dishwasher, which Emmeline bought with a Home Depot gift card she got by cashing in American Express Membership Rewards points.

What They Saved:
$740 on counter and backsplash
$890 on faucet and dishwasher
