When to Find the Best Deals from July through December

Back in April I wrote a post about the best time of year to buy to get the best deals on all kinds of products, from DVDs to automobiles. This is the second part of that post which picks up with the second half of the year from July to December.


Computers - July and August, or right after a new model is launched. Buying slightly older technology offers great savings opportunities.
Swimwear - As the swimming season draws to a close in July and August, you'll find the best deals on tanks and bikinis.
Indoor furniture - With the year's second round of new furniture about to hit stores in August, July is a great time to find discounts on current inventory.


Lawn mowers and outdoor furniture - stores start to make room for snow blowers by August.
Dehumidifiers - For the same reason that humidifiers go on sale in February, dehumidifiers go on sale in August.
Computers - see July for details
Swimwear - see July for details


Gas/charcoal grills - Fire up your credit card in September through November, when outdoor cooking heads toward hibernation in most areas of the country.
Automobiles - Most new model years start in September, so that's when dealers are looking to clear their lots of the previous year's inventory. November and December also can be good though selections may be slimmer.
Scrubs, Trees & Perinials - September is when stores want to empty their garden sections, but there's still enough time to get plants established before the first freeze.
Digital Cameras - A second round of new models comes out this time of year, so current inventory is marked down to make room for new models.


Gas/charcoal grills - see September for details
Winter clothing - cold-weather gear goes back on sale when the weather's just starting to turn.


Automobiles - see September for details.
Televisions - TVs are a staple of pre- and post-Christmas sales, so plan to buy during the winter months (coincidentially, the same time you'll want to spend curled up on the couch in front of the flat-screen anyway)
Toys - Another area where you can save just when you need to - in time for the holidays.


Air conditioners - this one's easy - buy during winter when demand is low.
Automobiles - consumers are focused on holiday gifts and demand is lower.
Televisions - see November for details
Toys - see November for details

Good Days to Buy

Tuesdays - DVDs. New releases come out every Tuesday, and many stores offer discounts if you buy a movie on the first day it hits video.
Wednesday mornings - Airline tickets. According to Consumer Reports, that's when airlines try to fill unsold seats on flights for the following week to 10 days.
Holiday weekends- Appliances. This is when stores bring out their big sales. Even smaller holidays like Columbus Day and Presidents Day can be good time to buy, according to SmartMoney.com.
If you know of other best buying times for products to add to my list, I welcome your comments.
