With the start of the new year, serious shoppers know they’ve got 12 more months of the best seasonal deals.
There are the obvious sales dates that should be hard-coded into everyone’s calendar app: after-Christmas sales including gift wrap and decorations, the discounts on Halloween candy and costumes beginning Nov. 1 and Black Friday, with its traditional large markdowns on electronics, especially TVs.
In July, Amazon’s Prime Day offers online deals on a huge number of products, including its Kindle and Fire electronics brands.
In February, mattresses are the focus, with a tradition of discounts around Presidents’ Day. The month also offers discounts on chocolate after Valentine’s Day.
The folks at TopCashback.com have compiled a complete list with the best months to catch sales that aren’t always advertised. Cruises, Apple products and even movie tickets all have a sales season.
