Consumer Reports Sales Calendar…
I’m not usually one for reports and data. I did that stuff in high school and college, now it’s time for the fun stuff, right?
Well… ConsumerReports.org just released their Sales Calendar – and well, suddenly I’m into charts/data/calendars (go figure!).
This is what they found –
Sales used to be relatively predictable. A popular 1975 book could say with assurance that luggage went on sale in March and the best month to buy a baby carriage was January or August. But these days, with stores pumping out weekly sales circulars and manufacturers introducing new models as fast as they can get them off the assembly line and onto a containership, all bets would seem to be off.
Or are they? We found that it’s still possible to use the calendar to save money on major purchases. Our researchers combed industry surveys and publications, and consulted our in-house experts to compile the calendar. Consider it a general guide, and keep your eye on those sales circulars anyway because there will always be exceptions. Bear in mind, too, that the best time to save money isn’t always the best for selection. In some cases, your bargain might be a discontinued model without all the latest features.
So what’s up for January, February and March?
I see swimsuits on that January list… and let me tell you , they’re absolutely correct! I was scouring the internet last night looking for swimsuits (just in case it’s warm in Florida next week) and was on Swimwear For All and there were some AMAZING sales in swimwear!
Come on…. think summer with me! 🙂
