As September kicks off the countdown to Black Friday savings, it may seem like the only chance for scoring those kind of deals, right now, are in your fantasy drafts. However...perhaps it wasn’t such a bad idea to procrastinate on August’s back-to-school and summer shopping frenzy after all, as some great Labor Day sales and summer clearance events will shine at 50% off (or better), bringing a fat wallet to those who’ve waited!
School’s in session, but so (still) are laptop deals and related tech deals as back-to-school clearance leaves behind some impressive hidden savings. Office Depot, MacMall and a handful of other stores had some of the better September laptop deals last year, and FatWallet’s Tech Week poses additional September savings with increased cash back from Lenovo, Dell and other top tech retailers from 9/23-29. Expect some super deals below $300 on older laptop models, more than adequate for students on a budget. This could also be an opportunistic time to grab a discount on big screen HDTVs (50”-60”) during football season kick-off sales, although selection at low pricing should be limited, and waiting until late November (or for Super Bowl TV deals) will present holiday shoppers with a bigger selection and possibly better savings.
Finding the best selection of discounts always means “start shopping early”. This is especially true for clearance deals on the bigger ticket items for the home, like hot tubs, patio furniture, grills, bicycles and lawn mowers during the big Labor Day sales. The same tactic applies as retailers usher out summer fashion to make way for fall fashion. Online shoppers will grab these bargains quickly, taking full advantage of choice for what remains in inventory and stacking additional increased cash back in Fall Sales following Labor Day on a variety of apparel and shoes (9/3-15). And finally, smart shoppers will start watching holiday travel pricing now, as its best to book it this month.
