Products that are profitable to buy in May, and things whose acquisition is better to postpone
Portal analysts Offers made a list of the most profitable purchases in May, as well as recommendations on which purchases should be postponed for the future.
In May, Americans celebrate two holidays - Mother's Day (May 9) and Memorial Day (May 31), in honor of which stores offer big discounts on a wide variety of goods.
Perhaps you were planning to buy furniture, a new refrigerator or clothes - this discount guide will help make shopping enjoyable and profitable.
Under the conditions of quarantine, buyers began to actively master online purchases. Stores publish their assortment on the Internet, offer a “we collected - you took” service, or give out goods through a window in order to observe social distancing.
What to buy in May 2021
Typically, the ideal time to buy a mattress is three-day holiday weekends: Presidents Day, Labor Day and, of course, Memorial Day. In 2019, Sears, Macy's, Sleepy and other popular brands offered great Memorial Day discounts - up to 60% off. You should also pay attention to discounts and promotions on mattresses in the sections overstock.
2. Refrigerators and other household appliances
For Memorial Day, shops always offer great discounts on household appliances. In addition, May is the time when stores begin to cut prices for refrigerators from the previous year to make room for newer models. In 2019, we saw discounts of up to 40% on refrigerators and up to 30% off other home appliances at Best Buy, Lowe, Sears, and other major retailers.
3. Dishes and other household goods
The maximum discounts on household goods are expected precisely in May, during the celebration of graduation (in whatever form they are held this year) and Mother's Day. Stay tuned for updates to promotions in order to profitably purchase small household appliances and kitchen utensils. Bed Bath & Beyond, JCPenney and Kohl's are offering up to 30% off on these days.
4. Spring and demi-season clothing
Clothing sales reach their peak in May, when sellers try to get rid of goods from the old collection and bring in new ones. Look for discounts up to 90% at Macy's, Kohl's and Nordstrom stores.
5. Jewelry and bijouterie
After the celebration of Mother's Day, the demand for jewelry will begin to fall rapidly, and sellers will offer discounts of up to 70%. Look for the best deals at Zales, Sears and Macy's.
6. Sportswear and shoes
Winter clothing takes up a lot of space in store warehouses, so sellers will actively sell it before the start of sales of the summer collection. We also advise you to pay attention to sports shoes for the whole family - models of the past seasons will please you with excellent discounts. You can find great deals at Dick's Sporting Goods and Academy Sports + Outdoors stores.
7. Products on the Star Wars saga
Due to the similarity of sound May the fourth и May the force May 4 is called "Star Wars" day.
In a 2005 interview, George Lucas was asked to recite a famous quote from the film. Lucas's words May the force be with you ("May the force be with you") was translated into German by the simultaneous translator as Am 4. Mai sind wir bei Ihnen ("We will be with you on May 4th"). The interview was shown on TV Total on May 18, 2005 along with the translated phrase. Film fans liked this pun very much and every year more and more people learned about this “memorable date”.
On this day, companies such as Lego, Target and Amazon offer special discounts on Star Wars brand products every year. Many stores are launching one-day promotions, but sometimes you can buy branded goods for a profit during the whole month.
What not to buy in May 2021
1. Summer clothes
You will find the best prices for summer clothes in the second half of summer. Preparing for the implementation of the new collection, sellers will rush to sell the old one. In August, discounts can reach 80%, although the choice will not be so wide. Many sales will be driven by the start of the school year.
2. Swimwear and beachwear
While retailers like Target sell swimwear all year round, they usually actively replenish their racks in early spring. When it gets warmer in May, you will probably want to buy yourself a new one. But if your swimsuit last year can be worn for another season, then return to the store in September. It is then that the active sale of this product will begin.
3. Computers and electronics
In July, popular brands like Apple begin offering discounts for the upcoming start of the school year. But take your time and wait until August to get your hands on a laptop at the best price. And if you wait until November, you can get the coveted electronics as profitable as possible on Black Friday.
4. Grill and garden products
Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day are America's favorite holidays when every family wants to make grilled snacks. If you are not in a hurry to buy garden furniture and a new grill, you can buy them profitably after Labor Day. Then the discounts can reach 40-50%.
