January is the biggest discount month of the year, but February offers plenty of deals as well
Boats: Even though temps are near the freezing mark, now’s a good time to start looking at boats. This is for a number of reasons; First; it’s boat show season, which means that you can buy used boats at discounted prices while everyone gets excited for the new models. And second; it’s the off season in many parts of the country—not a lot of people take their boats out in the dead of winter—so demand is down, along with prices.
Computer Monitors: Black Friday or Cyber Monday isn’t the only time to grab cheap computer monitors. January and February are inventory clearance time, according to CNET, which means that you’re going to find some nice sales as manufacturers clear the way for other models.
Gas Grills & Air Conditioners: If you live in a colder area, February is a difficult month. Luckily, summer-centric products like grills and air conditioners are quite a bit cheaper, since no one else is really looking to get one. If you’re in the market, now’s a good time to grab.
Wedding Supplies: Everyone is waiting for the spring to plan their wedding—which means it’s much easier to find a venue and negotiate prices this month, before the nice weather arrives. Maybe an indoor wedding is right for you instead.
Winter Coats & Clothing: For obvious reasons, the later you get into winter, the cheaper winter clothing gets. If you can wait until the end of the season, both TIME and Dealnews agree: you can find some great discounts.
Cellphones: Cellphones may not be your ideal Valentine’s Day gift, but lots of digital carriers have some good 2-for-1 sales for you and your sweetie over the holiday.
HDTVs & Home Theaters: Even if you aren’t a sports fan, the pre-Super Bowl sales are definitely worth checking out—that is, if you didn’t get a new TV during the Black Friday rush. New models are coming out later in the spring, which means unless you’re gunning for absolute top of the line equipment, you can find a great TV at a reasonable price.
