What to Buy (and Not to Buy) in June

June 22, 2016 2:27 am

With graduations, weddings and Father’s Day to celebrate, you may find your wallet takes a hit come June. Looking for some relief? Here’s the scoop on bargains—and what can wait—from the shopping mavens at DealNews and NerdWallet.

Carpeting/Flooring – June is typically a slow season for flooring retailers, so be on the lookout for low prices—and don’t be shy about negotiating for installation discounts.

Fishing, Gardening and Hardware Equipment – June historically offers deals on fishing equipment and home-related items, like gardening and hardware tools.

Gym Memberships – Gym memberships tend to fall in June (when many exercise outdoors), so take advantage of discounted rates for the fall.

Laptops – School may be out, but many electronics retailers kick-off back-to-school sales in June. Expect deals at Apple stores, Best Buy and online on Amazon.

Lingerie – June is semi-annual sales month at Victoria’s Secret and other lingerie retailers. Gift yourself or a soon-to-be bride with an affordable set.

Outdoor Gear – In June, many outdoor retail chains offering fitness- and sports-wear and accessories slash prices up to 50 percent.

Swimwear – Expect early-season sales on swimwear in June—or, wait until just after July 4 for real blow-out savings.

Hold off on:

A/C Units – The hotter the summer, the higher the prices. Wait for end-of season discounts if you can.

Bicycles – Prices are highest in early summer. Wait until fall for the best buys.

Grills and Patio Sets – Prices are at a premium once summer starts. Delay buying a grill or patio furniture until August, when retailers reduce stock.
