Best Deals in January 2020 (and What to Avoid!)

posted in: Monthly Deals | 0

Now that the holidays are over, you might need a break from shopping. Buuuuuut, just in case you still have a touch of the shopping bug or you have an item or two to return, you will find great deals in select categories as retailers attempt to clear space for spring merchandise. The strongest categories will be on bedding and bath during annual White Sales, furniture, TVs (pre-Superbowl) and anything in the “New Year/New You” category.  Deal activity usually peaks around mid-January during Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, so stay sharp.

Here are some of the best deals in January (and which categories to avoid!):

What Not to Buy in January

Toys

Toy deals were hot last month, but you probably won’t see many worthwhile toy deals this month, unless they are holiday-specific items on clearance. The good news is your little ones are probably set for a while with all of their holiday gifts.

Mattresses

Great deals on mattresses occur in February, during President’s Day sales. If February is too soon for your budget, mattress deals will likely return in May, over Memorial Day weekend, and in September, over Labor Day weekend.
