Best Times to Buy in 2018

Want to get the best deal on everything that you buy? It all starts with knowing when to shop. Here’s a month-by-month guide to the biggest bargains. Some sales are timed to the introduction of new models, while others are long-standing traditions, such as January white sales.

Use the month-by-month information below to see when you can typically find the best prices on a variety of products. But keep your eye on your shopping apps, e-mail announcements, and Sunday circulars, too, because there will always be exceptions.

  • JANUARY: Fitness Equipment, TV’s, and Bedding and Linens
  • FEBRUARY: Home Goods, Winter Products and TV’s
  • MARCH: Golf Clubs, Outdoor Furniture and Grills
  • APRIL: Vacuums and Jewelry

Timing is everything, especially for frugal consumers. Knowing when to buy something can make a big difference at the register. Remember, though, that waiting for a sale has trade-offs. Forget about having the latest and greatest, but enjoy the steep discounts to be gained with this month-by-month guide.
