You can time your purchases and plan your shopping by the day of the week or weekend to get the best deals. From cars, to clothing to food and even entertainment - Financial Expert Vera Gibbons, stopped by with a breakdown.
Travel! Tuesday is good day to buy plane tickets, specifically Tuesday afternoons around 3pm because this is when airlines competing for dollars post their deals/this is when you'll find the newest deals and the cheapest seats. Go to site like farecompare, which tracks prices, right around that time, ready to make your purchase! Tues midday (and into wed am) also good time to buy gas before prices go up as weekend approaches and everyone looking to get away!
Slow day for entertainment so that means bargains--discounts of admission to places like movie theaters, amusement parks, miniature golf courses
Clothes. Good day to shop for outfits at big department stores. This is when they stocks shelves for the weekend and start their big sales great prices and the best selection, too..
Friday-good day for accessories-scarfs, belts can be found at a discount online, but otherwise not a good day for deals/a bust because everyone's out and retailers don't need to incentivize to lure you in.
Sat is good day to buy books and Sunday: best day of the week to buy big appliances: washers/dryers, stoves and fridges, as well as stuff to store in the fridge-groceries -- this is when sales start. Combine the latest round of coupons from your sun paper w weekly groceries store sales to maximize savings
