Stores want you to believe that every holiday weekend in the summer will feature some of the deepest discounts of the season, but that isn’t always the case.
However, we know that Memorial Day promotions tend to have the best sales of the spring.
The month of May comes and so does spring weather. You can put that new-found active spirit to good use by hitting the stores or going online for the best buys in May. Read on for what you should be looking for this month.
Refrigerators. Unlike the other major appliances, most manufacturers roll out their new models of refrigerators in the summer. This means that last year’s models get discounted during the spring. Clearance prices on last years models started in April and will be gone by the end of the month.
Spring Cleaning Items and Vacuums. Any house with kids knows about cleaning up and probably needs a reliable vacuum. May is one of the best months to buy one! New models tend to come out in June, which means that retailers need to sell the outgoing models in May. Look for special pricing on lawn and leaf bags, cleaning buckets, mops, brooms and other cleaning supplies.
Patio Furniture. Now is the time to start thinking about patio furniture. Start thinking about it, but don’t purchase unless its at least 25% off regular price. New models and styles are at full price and put on display at the front of the store. Don’t be tempted just yet, but look for the deals. Best time to buy patio furniture is late in the season.
Grills, Charcoal, Lighter Fluid and BBQ Accessories. May is the best month to buy anything related to grilling. Get that new grill you wanted now. Most stores will have free assembly, offer free grill covers or accessories, or even free delivery on deluxe models. You can’t pass this one up.
Be patient for end-of-May Memorial Day deals. You have the whole month to plan for some big savings; with Memorial Day weekend and its reliable three-day opportunity for price breaks, you can score some discounted purchases to round out your spring cleaning tasks and start your summer off right.
In general, you’ll see big discounts during Memorial Day weekend, but you’ll want to keep an eye out for grills, patio, fertilizer, garden annuals, lumber and decking, power tools and weed killers. Also check your local paper and online for specials and discount coupons that will give you extra savings.
And Lowe’s will offer major savings on much of your kick off to summer project needs too, so if there’s a home project you’ve been holding out on, check your local ads for price cuts on paint, garden supplies and landscaping materials. Lowes stores are also likely to offer free delivery on certain purchases like appliances, grills, deck packages and garden tractors.
