BEST DAY TO SHOP FOR GREATEST SAVINGS
You may prefer to shop on Sundays because it fits your schedule best or you choose Tuesday afternoons because it's less crowded. Maybe it's time to rethink your strategy and instead shop on the day that offers the best deals. What day is that? It depends on what you're buying. SmartMoney figured out the best days for the deepest discounts. That means that prices for the exact same item in the exact same store could be lower on Sunday than it is on Wednesday. Here is SmartMoney's advice on what to buy on which days:
Appliances: Prices for washers, dryers, ovens and refrigerators are about 1 percent to 2 percent cheaper on Sundays, which works out to about $10 saved on a mid-range model.
Groceries: While most grocery stores publish their weekly sales circular on Wednesdays, Sunday is the best day to shop. Clip coupons from Sunday's newspaper for more savings.
Personal Care Items: You'll find the best deals on toothpaste and deodorant at the drugstore chains on Sundays. You must go early to get the best deals.
Skirts and Dresses: Skirts sell, on average, for 77 percent off the retail price, while dresses are discounted, on average, 54 percent.
Cars: Cars are cheapest on Mondays as dealerships are more willing to negotiate. This holds true whether weekend sales were lackluster and they want to makeup for that or whether weekend sales were robust and they want to continue it.
Electronics: Computers, televisions, digital cameras and even video games are between 2 percent and 4 percent cheaper on Mondays.
Airfares: Since most domestic fares are posted on Monday evening, there is a scramble Tuesday morning to match prices. The number of cheap seats peaks at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
Clothing: Both brick-and-mortar stores and online retailers tend to begin their weekend sales on Thursday. You'll find the best deals and the most in-stock items. However, there are exceptions. See Monday.
Books: Books are 11 percent cheaper on Saturdays; they are priced at their highest on Fridays.
If parents out there are wondering what what your son or daughter really wants for Christmas this year, then look no further than the list below. According to a Nielson survey of American kids ages 6 – 12, here are the top 25 items that kids say they want the most.
Along with the list of top 25 items kids want the most, I’ve provide easy links to Amazon just in case you were looking to pick up some of these items for your kids, or if you simply wanted to price them out.
#1: iPad (see current pricing) – 50% of the kids surveyed say they want an iPad for Christmas, which is up from 44% last year. And as you can see below at #4, the iPad Mini has already made it’s way into the top 5 most wanted items by kids for Christmas (impressive).
#2: Nintendo Wii U (see current pricing) - 39 percent of kids aged 6 – 12 say they want the Ninetendo Wii U. Which ironically enough, is a mobile gaming device driven by apps (or games).
#3: iPod Touch (see current pricing) - coming in at 36% is the iPod Touch. For those of you who don’t know, the iPod Touch now a days is basically the iPhone without the phone part. In fact, as I’ve upgraded to new iPhone’s, I’ve passed down the old iPhone to my kids which without the cell phone service is basically an iPod Touch.
#4: iPad Mini (see current pricing) - Also coming in at 36% on the survey is the iPad Mini. Now I can imagine that for a kid aged 6 – 12, an iPad Mini is nothing short of the ultimate gaming tablet. Small enough to carry around easily, yet complete access to Apple’s app store. And amazingly enough, the iPad Mini is less than 2 months old – announced on October 23rd and released on November 2nd in all major Apple markets.
#5: iPhone (see current pricing) - coming in at 33% is none other than the iPhone. Oh yes, what would a most desired list be without the presence of the iPhone. Again, the theme continues here for the top 5 most desired list for kids ages 6 – 12 in mobile, gaming, apps, etc… I would venture to say that the iPhone demand is coming from kids at the upper end of the age bracket, like ages 10 – 12, where they would be more interested in utilizing the calling features of the phone to talk with friends. I can’t say that for sure… just a hunch.
So those are the top 5 items on the list of the kids’ most wanted items. Here’s the rest of the list, sorted by most popular items:
#6: Computers (view products & pricing)
