Go snag some March deals
Void of any major holidays, March isn’t known for its sales the way other months are—we’re looking at you, Easter and Memorial Day sales! But who couldn’t use a little retail therapy right now, as we hit the one-year anniversary of COVID-19 entering our lives? If you know what to look for, you can score some pretty huge deals this month—or any time of year if you know the best cheap buys by the month.
Note: Prices listed were accurate as of press time; pricing fluctuations may occur.
Televisions: Samsung 75″ Class 7 Series LED 4k Smart Tizen TV
Missed your chance to score a post-Christmas TV deal? It’s not too late. March is actually the second-best month of the year to buy a new TV (November is the first), says Julie Ramhold, consumer analyst with DealNews.com. “The reason we tend to see so many TV deals in March is that manufacturers are getting ready to release new models, so retailers are trying to clear out old stock,” Ramhold says. “It also could have to do with the fact that March isn’t exactly known for deals—it’s kind of lacking in that department, so some stores will offer deals just to boost sales during a slow time.” While prices won’t be as great as those around Black Friday, you can still expect to see name-brand 50-inch sets from $300 at stores like Best Buy. But keep an eye out at Dell, as well, because it often bundles gift cards with its TV deals, which makes the sets even more appealing, Ramhold says. One to keep an eye on is the Samsung 75″ Class 7 Series LED 4k Smart Tizen TV that’s currently marked down by $50. Consider picking up a universal remote that pairs with over 650,000 devices to go with your new TV.
Home improvement: Lovesac Sactionals
Starting at $2,470.00
We’ve all been spending quite a lot of time at home, so if you’ve been dreaming of a remodel, this is the time to do it. Home Depot and Lowes have major sales every March on their Home Improvement essentials. And you’ll need to decorate your remodeled home: Lovesac is offering up to 20 percent off its Sactionals with free shipping. Be sure to learn how to clean a microfiber couch—especially if you have pets or kids.
Luggage: Samsonite Voltage DLX Carry-On Spinner
We see more deals on luggage during March than in February, April, or May, so it’s a good time to refresh your luggage even if you aren’t planning a trip anytime soon, Ramhold suggests. Research signs of a well-made piece of luggage, then start shopping. Samsonite currently has a 50 percent off sale on its website; we’re eyeing this brightly colored Voltage DLX Carry-On Spinner with a built-in USB port.
St. Patrick’s Day Sales: Refurbished Dell Precision 3420 SFF
Not many retailers will opt to brand a sale around this holiday, but there should still be a handful to check out. Even before St. Patrick’s Day, the Dell Refurbished Store is currently offering 50 percent off select items, including this refurbished Dell Precision 3420 SFF (use code: 50PREC3420 at check out). “Plus, last year Vudu took 50 percent off select downloads, and DiscountMags offered one-year subscriptions for as little as $5.00,” Ramhold says.
Winter sports gear: Giro Adult Verge Zoom Snow Goggles
The winter sports season is wrapping up, so look for deals at your favorite outdoor store as they try to clear shelves to prepare for the warm weather products. “Last March, Dick’s Sporting Goods knocked an extra $20 off select $100 orders,” Ramhold says. These Giro Adult Verge Zoom Snow Goggles were marked down by 25 percent at press time. “Backcountry has also heavily discounted specific brands—some by up to 60 percent—so it can be a good time to shop for winter gear from bands like The North Face and Patagonia.” Follow these tips to save even more money when shopping online.
Exercise bikes: Bowflex C7 Indoor Cycling Bike
As we head into spring, sales for exercise bikes top out since many people will start to splurge on traditional bikes. Don’t expect to see the Peloton giving away their bikes, but lesser-known bikes such as the Bowflex C7 Indoor Cycling Bike are already on sale. March is the peak month for this sale, though many will also be on sale in April—just be sure to nab one before May, when the sales will be over. Expect to see prices that are up to 40 percent off in March.
Mattresses: Nectar Sleep Mattress
Starting at $499.99
Mattresses—especially floor samples—are a great item to snap up at a discount this month, as new mattress models arrive in the store soon. So if you missed your chance during the big President’s Day sales, don’t fret. Another bonus: the stores will be more likely to let those floor samples go now, says Kimberly Palmer, personal finance expert at NerdWallet. Currently, Nectar Sleep is including $400 of accessories (mattress protector, sheet set, and pillows) for free with every mattress purchased. Here’s how to buy a mattress.
Tax software: TurboTax will be marked down
This month, as the countdown to T-day continues (April 15), so too do the sales—and they’re targeting all the last-minute filers. Palmer suggests you shop around for the best deals since retailers including Best Buy, Dell, and Staples already had sales on the tax-prep products.
Ski supplies: The North Face Clementine Triclimate Jacket
What’s left of the unorthodox, socially distanced ski season is winding down, so everything from ski jackets to skis to accessories will be discounted at outdoor supply stores this month. The North Face Clementine Triclimate Jacket is already marked down by more than $100 and is expected to go even lower in the upcoming weeks.
Grills: Webber Spirit E-315 Propane Gas Grill
The weather is heating up, which means grilling season is nearly here. While it’s not on sale yet, the experts at Nerd Wallet say that March is the best time to invest in a new grill, before the prices jump up for the season. If you don’t purchase your grill now, we’d recommend waiting until late July or even August to get these prices again.
Pie: Famous Key West Key Lime Pie
March 14, it’s National Pi Day; while math enthusiasts will be celebrating with some fun equations, the rest of us should pop on masks and race to the supermarket for some great deals on actual pies. Many supermarkets and bakeries will be selling those lovely pies for just $3.14 (or they’re taking $3.14 off the price of their pies) to honor National Pi Day. Last year, Goldbelly had 40 percent off their pies for most of the month through the 14th (we’re eyeing the Famous Key West Key Lime Pie), while Uber Eats offered $3.14 off, and Whole Foods was selling their large bakery pies, like the French apple tart for $3.14 off. We’ve never loved math so much. Find out even more ways to celebrate Pi Day.
Party supplies: Party City St. Patrick’s Day decor
$5.00 for five
Got a small, socially-distanced, outdoor party coming up soon? Head to Party City to stock up on all the shamrock-themed decor for less, including this3D Mini Green St. Patrick’s Day Tinsel Shamrock. In the days leading up to the holiday, you can expect to see even bigger deals. And if you want to stock up for next year, the best clearance deals are always on March 18, right after the holiday is over. You can even find great deals in other categories if you know how to shop smart.
