‘Memorial Day’ dilemma - To do or not to do
You can shop for the following items this Memorial Day as you could chance upon one of the best offers in your locality:
1 Electronics and home appliances
As far as HDTV’s are concerned, you may find the best offers during January and February. Still, you could find some of the gadgets and appliances like streaming media players, television accessories, and DVD players at steep discounted rates during the holiday.
2 Spring apparels and swimsuits
You may jump into the Memorial Day shopping bandwagon and hoard up spring apparels as well as swimsuits around this time of the year.
The reason is you’d get a lot better offers for them in the month of August and September. It’s the time when all the stores in the country prepare their stocks for the fall and so, they get into some sort of a hurry to clear out off-season stocks as soon as possible and make room for fresh arrivals.
If you’ve been delaying in buying a new mattress, then May is one of the most suitable times to do that. You’ll be able to fish through a wide range of mattresses, and may even clinch the best bargain ever.
There are discounts on mattresses provided by the major brands such as Amerisleep, Serta iComfort, Beautyrest, Sealy Posturepedic, MacyBed, and Tempur-pedic.
Make sure you buy only if you need these items too badly, as you’ll have to manage your household budget and keep it from breaking as well.
Plug the loophole in your shopping plan and stop!
Memorial Day best buy offers don’t necessarily convert into great savings. Here are some chosen ones that wouldn’t be a good purchase during this festive season:
1 Outdoor summer furnitures
Once the festive season commences, backyard barbeque sale increases. Don’t buy grills during the summers, especially in May. This is because grill prices catapult due to their rise in demands during the spring and summer season.
If you want to buy it, then you may let the warm season go and look for offers during the Labor Day sales instead.
Like any other outdoor, summer furniture, you should keep distance from lawnmowers too since they sell like hot cakes during the summers. People prepare their gardens and lawns in Summer.
If you’re not in dire need of a lawnmower right now, then you could wait to buy it once the demands subside.
Though you may get some of the best deals on electronics during Memorial Day sales, yet it’s always better to wait till June and beyond to buy items like laptops.
Moreover, retailers push for electronics more as Father’s Day lurks around the same time.
