Everyone wants to get the best deal on what they are buying. You don’t want to buy something and then find is cheaper a week later. With the help of the Internet you can search for coupons and use search engines that are made specifically to compare the prices of products. However there are some things that are cheaper depending on the day of the week you shop for them.
If you are shopping for a new car go see the dealer on Monday. Most dealerships make most of their deal on the weekend, so by going on Monday they are desperate to make a deal because the weekend seems so far away. Also with so many less people shopping for a new car you will have more time to negotiate and the dealer will feel like they have less chances to make a deal.
The best time to shop for clothing is Thursday evening. This is when most stores restock their shelves for the busy weekend traffic. This is also when many store start weekend promotions and sales.
Shopping for airplane tickets, you will be most successful on Wednesday morning. Most flights and prices are released on the weekends. Then other airlines discount their fares to beat others, who then in turn lower theirs to stay in the game. Flight prices get the lowest on Wednesday mornings.
Fill up your car with gas on Thursday before 10 AM. Prices usually rise on Thursdays because station owners know people drive more and use more gas on the weekends. They up their prices on Thursdays to get the people who are filling their tank because traveling on Friday.
The best time for department store shopping is on Saturday evening. This is because the new sale week starts on Sunday and large department stores have a lot of merchandise to mark down before then. They usually start doing this on Saturday evening before the store closes to prepare and save time the next morning.
Your best bet to get all the deals on groceries is to shop on Sunday. Most store sales run from Wednesday to Tuesday, so you can combine the coupons that come with Sunday’s paper and then use those along with the sale items. If you don’t need something but want to get it at the sale price, go on Tuesday when there is a chance it might be sold out. Then you can get a rain check and buy the item later when you need it.
After you have your flight secured, you’re going to need a hotel room. Call the hotel on a Sunday. This is because the revenue manager, the one who monitors profits, has Sundays off. Ask to speak to the manager when trying to get a discount on your room. You will be successful because they would rather have the roomed filled at a cheaper rate than have it be empty.
