We all want to grab the best possible prices when it comes to shopping. Of course, the very same principle applies to our online shopping habits. You’d buy that gorgeous foreign china set or that mouthwatering flat screen TV but the added shipping charges just seem illogical, right? Like they say, “there’s a time and a place for everything.” So today, I’ll guide you on the best time of the year for online shopping.
Now we all know that certain products are cheaper in specifics months. Generally, November and December have the most potential for sales in the online calendar, followed by January with the “white January sales” and March being the least preferred.
- January, February and March:
January and February are considered the best time of the year to go shopping for clothes! All of the crazy post-holiday sales have some great prices for those of us who want to save whilst shopping. All of the off-season appliances like air-conditioners are also on sale because face it, there’s not much market for a snow cone machine when you’re shivering with cold. Similarly winter clothing, the later you buy it, the better prices you’ll get so February and March are a good time for that. January offers great potential for clearance sales, boats, furniture, wedding supplies, bedding, things that are considered expensive throughout the year, now’s a great time to get your hands on them.
- April, May, June and July:
There’re quite a few noticeable sales throughout the second quarter of the year, especially if you’re contended with buying a slightly older model of product. Most of the Electronics Shows are due in January which means that this part of the year is fruitful for those who want to buy digital cameras, kitchen accessories, vacuum cleaners, power tools or refrigerators. Albeit, the previous models.
- August to December:
August, September, October, November and December have the widest range of products on sales but maybe not the best prices, with an exception of December. But since it’s the magical time of the year when children go back to school, there are a lot of back-to-school sales on the market. Children’s clothing, school supplies, bags, books it’s a great time to buy these products.
Then Christmas sales take over the online shopping world, makeup products, clothes, furniture, home décor items and things of the sort are on the hot item list.
-Black Friday and Cyber Monday: During the Black Friday and the Cyber Monday sales, electronics tend to be the cheapest and there’re some mind numbing discounts so that DEFINITELY is the best time to get your paws on a PS or XBOX.
Discount Codes and Free Delivery Codes—God’s gift to us:
Discount codes, promo codes and free delivery codes work in essentially the same way, they help us save money. So when you’re cleverly buying a desired product at the best time of the year, it’s a good idea to use a discount code or a free delivery code. The discount codes take money off the specified product or your overall order, and the free delivery codes to do exactly what the name suggests, nullify the shipping charges.
Whatever you plan on buying online, it is always smart to keep the market trends and the demand in mind so you don’t end up spending more money than required.
