What to Buy in September
Labor Day sales feature decent discounts on new fall fashions and outdoorwear, but waiting for later in September can result in the deepest discounts on jackets/hoodies, long sleeve tops, work boots and especially denim clothing with up to half price savings. “Summer clearance sales feature outdoor sports apparel, college and professional teams merchandise, and hiking and hunting apparel with discounts in the range of 20-40% off from popular online stores like REI co-op, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Sierra Trading Post, Cabela’s and others.”
Back-to-school clearance gets better for clothing after labor Day sales. “Waiting until later in September will reward shoppers checking out the annual denim and jeans sales with promos featuring up to half price on new jeans for the kids and adults. Look for deep discounts and site-wide sales online from brands like Levi’s, Lucky, Guess, True Religion and Lee among other popular brands.” Cash in with additional savings shopping through cash back sites like Ebates.com, often increased 2x or more throughout the month.
Lawn Tools and Equipment Clearance ramps up following Labor Day weekend offering the year’s best discounts on push mowers, riding mowers and lawn tools. Expect up to $150 off regular prices on gas-powered and cordless lithium powered push mowers from brands like Kobalt, Greenworks, Black+Decker and Worx. “Shoppers will find similar discounting on 40-Volt Lithium Powered Lawn Tools (trimmers, edgers, hedgers) upwards of 50% off as stores like Lowe’s, Home Depot, Menard’s and Ace look to move summer inventory.”
Football watching season offers reduced prices on 4K TVs, especially for consumers looking to upgrade into entry level UHD models.
