Memorial Day Sales – What To Buy What To Wait On

Sales, Sales, Sales on Memorial Day weekend!

I am sure you have heard some buyer beware stories of when to buy certain things and when not to?  Well, if you are heading out to the mall this weekend, read this first!

You know I am a sale shopper.  I hate to pay full price for anything.  But, just because something is on sale today doesn’t mean it’s going to be the best sale price for that item.   Let’s take this study done by as our example.  They outline for us exactly when we should buy certain products.

Summer Travel – BUY

Online travel sites like Expedia, Priceline, Orbitz and compete to feature their best offers on airfare and hotel deals, cruise deals and car rental coupons for Memorial Day shoppers.

Summer Clothing – BUY

Memorial Day marks the kick-off of the summer clothing retail season, prompting deep discounts from top retailers.

Mattresses – BUY

There is no better time to buy a mattress, or mattress sets, than during Memorial Day sales. (Sleep Number beds are $500 off!  Tell them Sean & Bethany sent you!)

Appliances – BUY and WAIT –

Home improvement stores like Home Depot, Sears and Lowe’s will feature Memorial Day deals with up to 50 percent off refrigerators, ranges, washers and dryers, etc. that rival their Black Friday prices.

Laptops – WAIT

Like TVs, there are always one-off sales for laptops, especially older models. The best time to buy a new laptop is during Back to School sales in July, or on Black Friday when selection and prices on MacBooks, touchscreen laptops and 2-in-1 hybrid tablet/laptops can drop as much as 50 percent.

Patio Furniture and Grills – BUY and WAIT

Spring discounting on patio furniture and grills hit its peak during Memorial Day weekend. Prices go back up in June until summer clearance in the fall when these items are cheapest.

Lawn & Garden Supplies – BUY

May brings sweeping spring sales on lawn and gardening supplies that ramp up as Memorial Day nears.

Power Tools – WAIT

A recent survey reports Father’s Day is the best time to buy tools.

pcHeinz Gravy, Coke-Cola 2 liters & Price Chopper Cranberry Sauce for only $.25!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, these are some hot deals!

Here are some things to remember when planning your Thanksgiving Day shopping list.  The price of a turkey usually drops as the big day approaches.  Today, Butterball turkey’s are just $.99/Pound.  Maybe, as in years passed, we will see a coupon making the price closer to $.50/per pound.  You never know, but keep an eye out.  Even if you are not hosting family and friends this year, put a turkey in the freezer!

The fixings – The sales on Thanksgiving Day meal items are already starting.  Take advantage of the in ad coupons and the bonus coupons for these items.  Case in point, the Cranberry Sauce for only $.25!  It’s ok to buy some things a little early!  Then, save the big trip for the fresh ingredients a few days early.  Last year there were bonus coupons for potatoes too!

As Thanksgiving approaches, look for lower prices!  And no worries, I will help you be posting them too!

Happy shopping!
