What to buy in May
In May, the best three days for shopping for mattresses are President’s Day, Labor Day and Memorial Day.
Lots of stores offer mattresses on discount on these days. Sears, Macy’s and Sleepy’s discount mattresses by 60% or more during the trio of these days. On Overstock too you can find deeply discounted mattresses.
2. Refrigerators and appliances
On Memorial Day there are steep discounts for most major appliances.
In 2018, major brands offered up to 40% discounts on newer refrigerators and on models at Best Buy and other retailers.
Sears offers 25 to 70% discounts on its refrigerator models. It’s also the time you get a slightly older model at steep discount than the newer model that’s disappearing fast off the shelves.
3. Cookware and home appliances
Mother’s Day is rife with deals on kitchen appliances and utensils ranging from pots and pans to knives and grinder jars.
During Mother’s Day retailers jack up jewelry prices. Once that’s gone they are left with excess inventory which they like to unload sometimes offering as much as 70% discount.
What to skip in May?
Swimming suits flood the market starting early spring and with the general air of warmth in sun everyone wants to go skinny dipping and are sold out in large quantities.
It’s better to purchase them in the off-season when retailers have them stocked in surplus and want to off load them.
Last year in June Victoria’s Secret discounted 60% on the bulk of its available styles. Thus May isn’t the best time for swimwear and lingerie. Wait a little longer.

2. Electronic gadgets
Black Fridays are known for the heavy discounts on electronic gadgets, on laptops, consoles and similar items.
They’re at their lowest at that time in the year.
Yes it’s a long wait until November but the deals are also much sweeter.
3. Summer apparel
May isn’t the best time to shop for summer clothes. This apparel are steeply priced because everyone needs them at that point in time. It’s better to be patient and hold out until August to shop for summer apparel as then no one wants them and you might snag deeply discounted items at 80% their fair value.
