Best Time to Buy

Buying a new gadget or gizmo is one of the most exciting things, especially if you’ve been planning for it. Maybe you had a nice tax day refund and you’re looking to get the best deal on a new TV or want to know when TVs go on sale or this year’s model of iPad. Maybe you’re eyeing new office furniture or a set of golf clubs.

Whatever you’re looking to buy, you’re likely looking to get a good deal so you don’t spend all your hard-earned money. We have summed up the best times for you to buy anything. Have a look:


Retail stores love the holiday season. It’s the perfect opportunity to take advantage of their customers’ time off from work. Most stores hold huge sales during holidays like Labor Day or Father’s Day, regardless of the type of product you’re looking for.

The same is true for the days following holidays, especially if you’re looking for things like party supplies or holiday-specific goods. As soon as the holiday is done, these products majorly go on sale.


Buying during the offseason is a great time to save big. Buy products like patio furniture and lawn mowers in the fall or winter clothes in the spring to get the best deals. This is also a good time to buy gym memberships and gift cards.

Stores are more likely to lower the prices on items they need to move as part of their spring cleaning before they get next year’s models during the on-season.

Special Sales

Another good time to get a killer deal is during special events like blowout or liquidation sales. When a company goes out of business, you can bet they're going to discount their merchandise as much as possible so they can still turn a profit.

Department stores are shutting their doors for good now more than ever, and this can be the perfect opportunity for you to snag low prices on products that you would never get anywhere else.

Frozen foods may also go on sale during special circumstances like power loss. This is especially for big box grocery stores like Wal-Mart and Target. They don't want to lose their merchandise, so they often mark it down to get it out the door before it goes bad.

Another special kind of sale is the white sale, when stores steeply discount their bed and bath items. White sales typically take place in January.
