You can thank Mom for many of the great deals that can be scored in May with Mother’s Day sales driving many of this month’s discounts. Later in May, the three-day Memorial Day weekend offers another round of discount opportunities.
Kitchen gear. The latest and greatest home gadgets that appeal to busy moms — think pressure cookers, crock pots, coffee makers and toaster ovens — will be among the big sales items this month.
Home and garden. Continuing into May, expect seasonal discounts on plants and garden equipment, mulch, indoor and outdoor paint, tools and home repair supplies as DIYers venture outside to get their homes in shape. Ditto for outdoor grills and patio furniture.
Appliances. Look for sales on appliances during the three-day Memorial Day weekend. But don’t fret if you miss out. Retailers will roll out similar sales on each of the major holiday weekends. If you don’t mind last year’s models, another time to tap into extra savings is when the new models are introduced, which typically happens in January.
Furniture. Watch for deals on furniture around Memorial Day and then again on other major three-day holiday weekends throughout the year — similar to the sales on appliances. In addition, smart shoppers can score furniture deals on last year’s styles as the industry preps for its semi-annual furniture market trade shows in April and October in North Carolina, a major furniture manufacturing hub in the United States.
TV time. Expect sales and discounts on high-definition televisions, blu-ray players, surround sound speakers, and other entertainment equipment over the three-day Memorial Day weekend.
