If you're going to say goodbye to summer, at least
you can say hello to some bargains. And there are
some great deals over the Labor Day weekend.
One of the first may be the fuel it takes to go shopping
the weekend. AAA says the current price of gas is
$3.44 on average, 15 cents less than it was at this
time last year, although that's not quite the cast
here in Spokane.
But, lower prices could be why AAA projects nearly
35 million Americans will travel this weekend, the
most since 2008.
So, what deals are on the table?
Kiplinger.com says, look for those larger appliances
in your home. Discounts can be up to 45% on major
appliances, with chances to save the most by purchasing
online and using coupon codes.
Next, think about what you'll miss when winter arrives,
and chances are you'll find opportunities for sales.
Bicycles go on sale this time of year, along with
camping gear and patio furniture.
Kiplinger says last year, Lowes, Target and Walmart
took up to 75% off patio furniture over Labor Day.
It says discounts look to be in the same range this
And it's time to think about how to make long winter
nights a bit easier to bear. Mattresses go on sale
this weekend with discounts up to 60% from Sears.
Kiplinger says Macy's is making mattresses cheaper
But, not every deal is going to be great this weekend.
