As holidays come up so does spending, however knowing what days to shop can certainly make a big difference.
Listening to tips from friends and reading I realized there are actually specific days where you can get great bargains.
Online article, "The Cheapest Days to Buy Certain Items" on smartmoney.com, offers some great tips:
Wednesday morning; a time when fares reach their lowest prices.
Thursday; a time where you can find weekly sales and coupons.
Monday; there aren't as many customers compared to the weekends, thus customers have more negotiating power.
Thursday evening; a day of the week when many retail stores stock their shelves to get ready for the weekend, that is including promotions.
Before 10:00 a.m. Thursday; prices increase on Thursdays as commuters get ready for Friday and the weekend.
Sunday or Tuesday; a time where you can find store sales/coupons.
Sunday; speaking to a manager or director of sales are more open to make deals. Calling later in the week you would probably end up speaking to a revenue manager, who would be less willing to make a deal.
Keeping these tips in mind will sure save some green in your wallet.
