Don’t Sleep on These Sales During Tax Refund Season!

We are fully in the midst of tax refund season, although if you haven’t filed your 2018 taxes yet, don’t worry. You still have time. The deadline to file is April 15 in every state except in Maine and Massachusetts, where the deadline is April 17.

If you’ve been holding out on filing, we have information to motivate you. You can save some serious cash by shopping major sales happening this spring for items you planned to purchase anyway. Retailers know you have a little more to spend during tax season, so to get you in their doors, they offer some of the best discounts this time of year.

Black Friday always reigns supreme, but late Fall isn’t the only time you can get huge discounts on the things you want or need. Check out these upcoming Spring sales:

Spring Black Friday – Yep, there’s such a thing as Spring Black Friday and it’s going to be here before you know it! Typically, stores run Spring Black Friday deals at the end of March, sometimes through April. This is when retailers offer big discounts on home appliances and garden items like grills, patio furniture, and materials for DIY projects like decks and fences.

Easter – This year, Easter falls on April 21, and retailers often promote sales leading up to that day. Of course, toys and candy are popular at Easter time, but this is also a great time to find deals on clothing for the family as well as spring home decor items. Electronics are also a popular choice for the kids’ baskets, so expect to see good deals on those as well.

Mother’s Day – Before Mother’s Day arrives on May 12, pretty good promotions for popular gift items like jewelry, gift sets, perfume, chocolates, and flowers begin. This is a good time to stock up on gifts for the rest of the year, just probably not the chocolate or flowers.

Memorial Day – This one is a biggie. Many furniture, appliance, and mattress retailers offer large discounts over the long Memorial Day weekend, which runs May 25-27 this year. If you’re planning a big home purchase, waiting for Memorial Day weekend sales can save you a bunch of money! Also, most retailers will be discounting electronics, so if you’ve been eyeing a new television, video game system, or smart home item (for example), this is a good time to scoop it up!
