Saturday Savings: The Best Time To Buy

Did you know that there is a best time of year to make purchases to get the best price? If you look at the "best" times you will notice a pattern. It is always during the off season when the item you need isn't in demand. For example, right now it is summer and blazing hot. Who wants to guess we could get a huge deal on a winter coat and snowboards?

Air conditioners Best time: winter

Big appliances Best time: September and October

Bicycles and outdoor gear Best time: January

Boats Best time: January, February and March

Cars Best time: September

Cell phones Best time: any time

Computers Best time: July and August

Cookware Best times: April and May; October and November

Furniture Best times: January and July

Gas grills Best time: winter

Jewelry Best time: Avoid the holidays, Valentine's Day and
Mother's Day

Linens and bedding Best time: January

Real estate Best time: spring

Recreational vehicles Best time: fall and winter

Toys Best time: October and November

TVs and home theaters Best time: winter holiday sales and January

Don't forget Hot Tubs in the middle of a very hot summer! :) I bought my car in September, and can attest to the fact that I got a great close-out deal. BTW, The Scribe is back online, and we're hosting the Silly Summer Sunday Sweepstakes again tomorrow. Please come by and Share the Caption Love!

The sales on right now look might appealing but I fear that the best time for me to be things right now is...well not right now!
