Health and Well Being: January offers a focus of price reduction on items related to new year’s resolutions and new beginnings as consumers look to make a commitment to their bodies and well being with vows to get in shape by exercising and eating better. Sales and discounts on health supplements, vitamins and diet foods, as well as winter foods (coffee, cocoa, soup, chili, etc.) are abundant the entire month. Those seeking to start excursive programs can find signup bonuses on health club memberships and a variety of January sales on exercise equipment and work out apparel.
Bright White Sales: Originally created in the late 1800s to move slow selling bed linen inventory (back then was only available in white), today’s white sales are generated to move inventory on bed and bath linens, as well as a variety of household items. But unlike holiday discounts on these items which are generally mid-level quality, January White Sales bring big discounts on both lower and higher quality sheets, towels and other textile items for the home.
Early Tax Refunds: Early returns filed for the first week of 2014 were up 2.5%, and the big tax software retailers like H&R Block, TaxAct and TurboTax offer their best discounts of the year for this savvy group. Check in on FatWallet.com to stack cash back savings on both desktop and online tax software solutions for both personal and small business tax filings and consult their Finance forum for additional hidden savings via expert tax advice, tax tips and the newest filing tactics.
Bigger, Better, Cheaper: January brings the perfect storm for HDTV deals as prices on higher quality and smart tv technology drop to some of the year’s best savings following CES show (Consumer Electronics Show) as the football playoffs kick in and Super Bowl sales events start to surface mid-month. Consumers will have opportunities to shop for a wide selection of 50-60″ HDTVs in the $500-600 range with plenty of features to effectively upgrade their main viewing unit. These sales include home entertainment package deals allowing a significant savings on an upgrade to both audio and video in one purchase, for better xBox One and PS4 play, and just in time to host Super Bowl XLIX parties.
Wait for These: While the electronics brands debut their latest technology at January’s CES show (Consumer Electronics Show), retailers start to discounts older items in anticipation for this new tech to hit their inventory. However, the majority of these price-reductions won’t happen immediately. Small gadgets and electronics deals on digital cameras, video cameras, wired and wireless audio gadgets and streaming devices and accessories will see bigger price reductions later into winter and early spring. The same is true for laptops, computers and tablets.
