Shop Smart With June's Best Deals

3 Minute Read

Shopping is an art form.

The most sophisticated shoppers know when and where the good deals are available. It’s not just about getting all the coupon sections of newspapers and subscribing to all the discount emails—though that always helps. It’s also about simply knowing the type of things that go on sale during each given month.

If you’d like a little kick-start in the right direction, we’re here to help. So what should you look out for in June?

Local experts you can trust.

Find an ELP

Everything Dad.

Father’s Day is June 16 this year. You didn’t forget, did you? Well, you still have a little time, and retailers are more than willing to help you find something for a pretty good deal. Tools, golf clubs, even fishing licenses might be on sale for you in early June, depending on where you live. Don’t forget about old dad!

Gym Memberships.

Everybody’s heading out on vacation and taking their kids all over town during the summer. That means gyms are looking for new customers and are cutting prices to draw them in. Instead of waiting until the beginning of next year, when everyone and their brother is signing up, go ahead and get your membership now. There’s never a better time to get in shape!

Doughnuts.

Now that you’re burning calories with your discounted gym membership, a doughnut or two can’t hurt. June 7 is National Doughnut Day. That means all your favorite doughnut shops will offer freebies, and you can enjoy the deliciousness that is the glazed doughnut.

Cruises.

We don’t know if you’ve heard, but cruise ships have had a rough go of it lately. They’re a little like Lord of the Flies for grown ups. But because of all the bad PR, you know cruise vacations can be had for a discount. And in reality, with thousands of cruises a year, the chances you’ll have a nightmare experience is extremely slim. You’re much more likely to have a great vacation, especially if you find a great deal.  

Paint.

Summer means it’s painting season. What’s your flavor? Off white? A hint of red? A touch of sky blue? Look for paint sales because they should be easy to find this time of year.

Fruits and Veggies.

Corn, peaches, strawberries, tomatoes … all sorts of fruits and vegetables are on sale this time of year. After you get that free doughnut on National Doughnut Day, go ahead and stop by the grocery store or the farmer’s market and load up on fresh fruit. You’ll feel better—plus, with all those extra fruits and veggies, you’ll be sure to get a decent deal.
