If you are in need of tools, clothing or outdoor items, you are in luck.
The deal-hunting website FatWallet.com says shoppers can expect to save big on a host of items this month, including power tools, camping gear, yard items, and women’s summer apparel.
Several retailers hold semi-annual sales during the month of June, offering deep discounts on a host of items, especially women’s products.
Here are FatWallet.com‘s recommendations on what to buy this month:
Dishware and cookware deals just happen to coincide with wedding gift registries, especially “everyday” china and high quality pots and pans sets. Some of these items can be found for up to 50 percent off at Macy’s, Wayfair, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Mikasa and other department stores during the month of June, FatWallet says.
June Semi-annual Sales can offer some of the best savings of the year on a variety of summer items for women, typically 40 percent off or more, according to the website. Stand outs include sales from Victoria’s Secret, Saks 5th Avenue, Lane Bryant and Bath & Body Works, FatWallet said.
Local Deals from sites like Groupon and Living Social can offer significant savings to a variety of summer activities. Whether traveling, staycationing or gifting, local summer savings on average of 50 percent can be had on festivals, skydiving, boat rides, spas, and food at local restaurants and bars, according to the website.
Early 4th of July Sales, which will kick off in the last week in June offer heavy discounting on patio accessories, party decorations, outdoor sports toys and gear, air conditioners, fans and fitness equipment clearance. Hit the big box stores for the best prices, FatWallet recommends.
FatWallet said you can also find deals on a host of Father’s Day items. Expect discounts on these items:
Tools, especially power tools, cordless tool kits, tool storage and automotive tools.
Home improvement project needs are featured sale items all month. For Home owners that want to beat the heat, stores like Home Depot, Lowe’s and Sears bring their best prices of the year on paints and stains, building materials, hardware, fixtures and tools needed to complete jobs in time to enjoy summer, FatWallet said.
Summer sports and outdoors items see price drops in June, including deep discounting on gear for camping, fishing and golfing at Bass Pro shop, Cabela’s, and Golfsmith. Also, look for weekend sales on yard and pool games and toys at big box and specialty stores.
Men’s clothing will be on sale these first 2 weeks in June, especially summer apparel used for outdoor activities and sports. Stores like REI, Backcountry, LLBean, Patagonia and Duluth Trading have timely deals on quality shirts, shorts and shoes for guys, and gals, who spend their free-time outside, FatWallet said.
Here is the fine print: Dunkin is offering “guests a free classic donut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of any beverage. The offer is good all day on June 3 at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide,” according to the company’s website.
National Donut Day was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I. The holiday is traditionally celebrated on the first Friday of June.
