Happy February everyone, and happy Groundhog Day, too! With Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day also coming up, there’s plenty to look forward to this month. And it only gets better when you consider just how many great deals you can take advantage of throughout February! Today I’ll be sharing 11 items that are often discounted in February. If you’ve been planning on buying any of these items, keep your eyes peeled for these deals! :-)
Curious about what deals you can score in March, April, or even August? I’ve got you covered all year! Check in around the beginning of each month in 2018, because I’ll be sharing a post like this one letting you know what deals to look out for that month!
February Is The Best Month To Buy…
Furniture manufacturers release their new designs every spring, which means retailers need to clear out last year’s designs early in the year. That’s good news for you, because it means you can find great deals on last year’s models during the month of February!
2. Lobster & Steak
Grocery stores stock up on more expensive types of meat and seafood in early February in preparation for Valentine’s Day. But after Valentine’s Day, stores often discount their leftover stock of these items. So if you head to the grocery store on February 15th, you’re likely to score a great deal on steaks, lobsters, and more! You can whip up a fancy “surf ’n turf” meal for an unusually reasonable price. :-)
Most people think about buying a humidifier earlier in the winter, so you will see them start to go on sale in February. But you can take advantage of sale prices on a humidifier now, and still have plenty of wintertime left to experience the benefits! I recently bought one for my living room, and now I can’t imagine living through the winter without it!
Some manufacturers and wireless carriers offer buy-one-get-one deals on smartphones during February. These deals are aimed at sweethearts for Valentine’s Day, but anyone can (and should) take advantage of them, especially if you’ve been needing a replacement!
After Valentine’s Day, you’ll be able to find steep discounts on chocolates in almost any grocery store. Stock up on all your favorites!
Okay, so you might not find huge discounts on perfume and cologne themselves. However, you can often take advantage of great free gifts with the purchase of perfume or cologne during the month of February! Some of the free gifts I’ve come across while browsing include tote and duffel bags, makeup palettes, travel-size cosmetics, and more.
7. Canned Food
Did you know that February is National Canned Food Month? You can celebrate by snagging great deals on canned, dried, and bulk foods this month at many grocery stores. Stock up on all your favorites, like beans, tomatoes, corn, and more. (It’s also a great time to buy a few extras to donate to your local food bank!)
8. Tax Software
You’ll find the best discounts on tax software during February. Take advantage of these sales and get your taxes done ahead of time!
9. Clothes & Linens
February 19th is Presidents’ Day, and that means Presidents’ Day Sales! Keep an eye out for sales and discounts on clothes, linens, home goods, and even laptops.
10. Ski Trips
During February, look for special discounts on ski trip vacation packages to Utah and Colorado. The busy season for ski trips is usually around the holidays, so companies start to offer sales and discounts on trips once the hubbub dies down. And ski season often lasts well into April, so there should still be plenty of snow left to enjoy!
11. Broadway Tickets
If you’ve been dreaming about a trip to NYC to see a Broadway show, February can be a great time to do it! Broadway tickets are often less expensive during the spring, and you’ll enjoy less chaotic travel and shorter wait lines.
