There are a few high priced products on sale this February. If you’ve been considering buying some of them, do so now. However, things like jewelry, smart phones, and luggage should be put off until later.
What to buy this month …
Big-screen TVs. 2014 models have been unveiled now, so sellers aim to move their 2013 inventories. Look for pricing on some 55″ HDTV models to drop to $500 and some 3-D HDTV’s to be under $700.
Boats. In most places around the country, winter is the off season for boating. This makes for boat sales on recreational watercraft. Also, this time of year is popular for boat shows, wherein deals can be found. However, make sure you still have a good place to get your boat serviced locally as many dealers at these shows come from far away.
Home goods. January is the typical “white sales” month for home goods and linens. However, these goods are still discounted up to 80% during Presidents’ Day sales at large department stores on or near February 17.
Mattresses. Presidents’ Day sales also extend to mattresses. Look for price drops of up to 60%!
Tax software Deals on tax software will be around until the April deadlines, but the best price drops will occur in February and March. Case in point: Turbo Tax Basic dropped to $21 from $39 in February.
Winter apparel. Sellers have been discounting winter apparel since after the Holidays up to 70% However, in a bid to move the last bit of 2013 inventory look for sales of 30-60% off of these already marked down prices. The best sales will be at Gap, Aeropostle, Urban Outfitters, Ralph Lauren, Express, Ann Taylor, and American Eagle Outfitters.
Don’t Buy These Just Yet …
Jewelry. Look for discounts after Valentine’s Day. Sales won’t be available before as demand is so great for gifts. The best deals of the year won’t happen until March, with price drops up to 80%.
Luggage. Wait on your luggage buying until Spring. Sellers mark it down after the Holiday travel season is over but the Summer travel season has not started. Price drops from 20-70% will be available.
Smart phones. New models of Smart Phones will debut at the end of February at the Mobile World Congress. Look for price drops on current year models after this. Best deals will be in a few months.
