While you probably feel all "shopped-out" after the holidays, you may be surprised that this time of year is a great time to keep shopping… if you want to save that is. We understand if you couldn’t bear the Boxing Day Sales, but even as we go through January, there are great discounts to be found. Especially in the electronics section.
Unfortunately, this time is not the best a discount on your insurance.
In fact, retailers want to move that old winter merchandise, so many are cutting prices to 75% at this time of the year.
While it may seem frivolous, taking advantage of holiday sales is one of the smartest money moves you can make. Purchases should be planned (no impulse buys), so it’s important to research the products you want by reading online reviews and comparing the sale price to the original price.
You will start to notice a trend of what items go on sale when, and believe it or not the post-Christmas sales are usually even bigger than Black Friday.
If you’re in the market for new electronics that’s a good place to start- these are usually very expensive, but are also likely to be marked down massively. The discounts can be so high that you could even ultimately save money by borrowing from My Canada Payday to take advantage of these deals.
January and February are a great time for Canadians to get out there and find some deals, but keep an eye out for sales after every major holiday.
Once you start recognizing the pattern of sales, you’ll be able to spend some money to save some money. Follow these tips to save some money in the shops this January:
These tips are simple yet effective ways to save money on items that you would be buying anyway. If you can avoid the allure of impulse buys, shopping in the sales is a smart financial move that will save you money later in the year (and for years to come!)
