Sales often occur around the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, and Presidents’ Day, and may occur at other times.
Here are some suggestions from DealNews.com for what to buy and not buy in February:
Yogurt. National Frozen Yogurt Day is February 6, so look for free treats. TCBY is offering a “buy one, get one free” deal.
TVs. Black Friday is always the best time to buy a TV. But if you missed out in November, February should bring decent savings on TVs around the Super Bowl, which is February 13 this year. Watch for deals during the first two weeks of the month.
Valentine’s Day sales. Sales are already underway. Look for deals, usually around 20 percent off, on jewelry, flowers, and candy.
Presidents’ Day sales. You’re likely to find opportunities to save on electronics, clothing, mattresses, home goods and furniture, and large appliances. You can expect to save up to 68 percent on laptops and desktops during these February sales at stores such as Dell Home, Lenovo, and HP. Retailers like Best Buy and eBay will likely offer Presidents’ Day sales with even bigger discounts. On clothing, expect to save up to 87 percent, and for mattresses, compare prices because some companies may offer $500 off.
Gardening and grilling items. Compare prices. You may find deals on gardening tools, grills, and grilling accessories. However, you likely to see greater savings in the fall.
On what not to buy, wait until later in the year to sign up for a cruise or buy luggage or android phones.
Good luck with your bargain hunting.
