Valentine’s Day & President’s Day: Two Big Savings Days!

Sometimes, timing really is everything when it comes to landing a deal. This year, Valentine’s Day and President’s Day are back-to-back. A confluence of holidays means big savings for you! Whether you’re celebrating with your sweetheart or best pals, or you’re in the market to replace or upgrade household items, here’s a quick list of the types of things you should be shopping for in February,

Subscriptions: Consider a box subscription for your loved one. There are so many to choose from – whether it’s whisky, shaving, fishing, bespoke clothing for men or makeup, exercise, jewelry, clothing for women, or even a plethora of genderless offerings like artisan products, health and wellness, pet products, or your fave TV shows – subscription boxes nearly have it all except the kitchen sink!

Valentine-specific items: The biggies are the annual flowers and chocolates, but don’t forget self-care products like beauty & bath products, fitness trackers, hair trimmers, or a weighted blanket.
Home Goods: Expect excellent offers on items such as bedding, small appliances, cookware and kitchen gadgets for President’s Day.

Air conditioners: It sounds crazy, since February is pretty chilly, but now is when you can find great deals on air conditioning units.

Furniture: With new inventory hitting showrooms, you can find furniture on sale in February. And remember, at most furniture stores, you can negotiate prices to get a bargain. Furniture has a pretty good markup, giving retailers room to work and still make a profit.

TVs: Check stores for remaining overstock from televisions that didn’t sell before the Super Bowl. You might even score an amazing deal on one that was returned.

Winter Items: Now is the time to load up on winter apparel and sports items for next year, because retailers are trying to make room for spring and summer inventory.

Tax Software: Buying tax software at the last minute isn’t financially savvy because it’s likely going to cost more. However, in February, you can find great discounts on this must-have.
