The Best Time To Buy: A Month-By-Month Guide To Scoring Big Bargains

There’s a good time and a bad time for everything. And that certainly goes for shopping—whether you’re in the market for new appliances or a fresh wardrobe.

To find out the best times to buy certain items, we asked two pros to open up their bags of secrets: Lisa Lee Freeman, savings expert at the coupon app Flipp; and Trae Bodge, who hass shared her smart shopping tips across the media landscape.

They both have some general advice to keep in mind. “National holidays and seasonal changes typically drive deals on products from clothing to mattresses to appliances,” says Freeman. Bodge adds that winter is an especially great time to save, as the end of the year can bring deals on closeouts and new models.

The secret, of course, is knowing what to buy when. So read on—and mark your calendar now for the year ahead.
