Whereas some items can be bought for a discounted price in September, others are still pricey and worth waiting for.
Kiplinger’s list of the best and worst September buys revealed that it’s worth spending on bicycles and grills, but it’s worth waiting a month or two before buying a new car. Here are the items you shouldn’t buy in September if you’re looking for a good deal.
- Appliances: Some appliances can actually be found for a pretty good deal in September and October, but you should hold out if you’re looking for a better deal. The number of deals that department stores offer for appliances is doubled in November so it’s worth waiting a couple of months before getting that new oven.
- Cars: September marks the beginning of the car season, but the previous year’s models don’t drop as much in price this month as they do in December. The dealers’ monthly and annual sales goals will force them to drop the price in some cars, thus giving the customer more negotiating power.
