Get a Jump on Sales This January When the holiday shopping rush ends, there are plenty of people ready to retire their credit cards for a while and take a break from the checkout lines. Still, others look forward to the sales that start the new year, eager to get great deals on many different products and services. There are many deals to be had in the early part of the year. Smart shoppers may want to wait for great deals on a variety of products. Electronics: Although many electronics go on sale for the holiday season, January brings another round of major discounts on electronics, even high-end items not included in holiday sales. New items are unveiled each year at the Consumer Electronics Show in mid-January, and many stores begin to clear out older inventory to make room for the latest offerings in home-theater systems, televisions and the like. These sales are bound to continue into February.
Furniture: New furniture designs are largely unveiled in February, so come the beginning of the year, homeowners and renters can score good prices on clearance inventory. Those looking to start the new year with new designs can generally find good prices early on. Last-Minute Travel: Although the cost of travel – especially trips to warm weather locales – can increase in January, last-minute or fast-acting travel package combinations are often available at low prices. Fitness Gear: Many people make resolutions to get in shape; therefore, gyms, spas and manufacturers of fitness equipment may discount their products to take advantage of the trend after a season of overindulgence. Winter Apparel: Many post-holiday sales focus on clearing out inventory of winter essentials, such as coats, sweaters, hats and gloves. Now may be the time to update your winter wardrobe. Contractors: Many people renovate their homes in the fall right before the holidays. Therefore, contractors and other home renovators may be at a loss for work come January and could possibly discount services to generate new business. New Home: Spring and summer are prime seasons for buying a new home. Few people want to look at homes with yards devoid of flowers and shrubbery, but buying a home in winter may be more financially prudent.
