May is a great time to take advantage of deep discounts. If you’re in the market for any of these 7 things make sure you get them at a steal this month.
May is the best month to buy a mattress. If yours is 8 years or older, it’s time to get a new one. There’s a big secret when it comes to buying a mattress too…you don’t have to pay the price listed. That’s right, it’s haggle time. Just as you can talk your way into a better deal on a car, you can sweet talk the sales guy into a true deal on a mattress that is already discounted. Make sure you shop around first before forking out your hard earned dough though.
We all secretly covet a new car. You see ‘the one’ pass you on the highway and wish you were in the driver’s seat. Stop day dreaming and pay attention to the road! Now go buy your own car and let someone else drool over yours. First, make sure you get a good deal. A new ride is even sweeter when you’ve gotten it for a steal. Dealers are trying to clear out this year’s models to make room for the next so now’s the time to shop. How do you know you’re getting a good deal though? As with any big item, it’s all about research.
None wants to pay full price for a vacation. Plan ahead and take advantage of discounts this May. Everything from wedding packages, airline tickets and condo rentals to airfare upgrades and spa treatments are on sale. Booking online will get you the best price. For flights and hotels, Friday and Sunday are the most expensive days so try to avoid them.
With the upcoming vacation season, cameras will be on deep discount. Check out the camera at a retailer then go online and see if you can get a better deal. Some stores price match. The military exchange does and remember, there’s no sales tax.
Planning a big family camping trip this summer? Tents and other outdoor gear will be marked down now. Make sure it fits your family’s needs or is accommodating to the particular plans you have for your vacation. A good deal is great but not if your whole family isn’t going to be comfortable. Don’t forget to use a promo code if you buy online!
Deals on patio furniture are in full swing this month with extreme discounts and coupons. Pay attention to circulars and online deals for special offers on full sets of outdoor furniture. If you’re shopping at Target, note that each store does NOT price match. If you need 6 cushions but one store only has 5, you won’t get the deal on the 6th if you buy it in another Target if it isn’t on sale there.
Now is a great time to purchase running and other athletic shoes. If you told yourself you’d get into running this spring and have yet to do it, here’s a step in the right direction. Kohl’s marks down shoes as far as 80% off and on Wednesdays seniors get an additional 15% off. Surprisingly, most stores mark down shoes on Wednesdays so don’t wait for the crowds on the weekends.
Knowing there are such great deals out there during May, what items are you planning to buy this month?
