The Best Time to Buy Anything

I read one of these lists in a magazine recently, but it didn’t explain the reasoning behind its recommendation to… say… wait until August to buy a new cell phone.

The list I found tonight is much better.

Just a few of the items mentioned…

  • Book your hotel stay on a Sunday for the best chance at getting a reduced rate.
  • May is the best time to buy matresses and box springs.
  • January is the best time to buy linens and bedding.

And I can tell you from experience, gym memberships ARE cheaper in June.  Here’s the explanation from the folks at “Go Frugal:”

“New Years’ resolutions have gone out the window by June and gym rats are more interested in outdoor activity than exercising indoors. Membership representatives will leap at the chance to sign up new members, even if it means waiving initiation fees and giving away a free month.
Best time to buy a gym membership: June”
