WASHINGTON — Save some money this summer by getting the most bang for your buck with July purchases.
There are many item consumers should and should not buy in the month of July, says TheStreet’s Personal Finance Editor Ross Kenneth Urken.
Here are some of his suggestions for July purchases.
Many retailers mark down their summer clothes 30 percent to 40 percent in July.
“Even though the kids are thinking the school year is far away, parents are starting to think about getting prepared,” Urken says.
“If you’ve been thinking about getting a new leather couch, you’re going to find about 30 percent off,” Urken says.
“You don’t want to kill yourself sweating it out in the heat, but if you want to be a smarter consumer and you’re thinking your air conditioner is on its last leg, wait until the end of August or really after Labor Day for a cheaper air conditioner,” Urken suggests.
