What’s going on sale this month? What items should I buy now, and what should I put off purchasing for a while? How do I know what to buy when?
Answering those questions means I need to fill you in on Seasonal Sales Cycles. If you have been couponing for a while, you have already noticed that particular items seem to be a better deal at certain times of the year. This is because retailers are competing for your dollars. They know what potential customers are looking for throughout the year, and in order to woo you into their place of business, they will offer you the best deals on your greatest needs. It is important to know what to buy when, so that you can save even more money.
What is a Sales Cycle?
The rotation of featured sale prices is called a sales cycle, and knowing how it works will help you with your budgeting and planning. Discounted prices go hand in hand with what retailers consider to be people’s greatest needs during different times of the year. When you know what to buy when, you have a definite advantage in your purchasing power. Below you’ll find links to the posts for each month’s sales cycle, letting you know what’s on sale so you can plan accordingly. Remember, you never want to pay full price for anything!
