The Best & Worst Buys of July 2024

Plus, Everything You NEED to Know about Amazon Prime Day 2024!

Welcome to the biggest month of savings we’ll see until November!

The focus of this week’s newsletter is to help you make the most of what Walmart calls their “biggest sale ever” that starts today, what to expect for Amazon Prime Day next week and some purchases you might want to avoid.

What’s included this week:

👍🏼 5 Great Buys In July

 Kitchen Products and Vacuums: Pick your favorite store and whether you need a multi-cooker, air fryer, floor cleaner or a robo vac, July yields the strongest savings of the year.

 Apple Products: Between Prime Day, Walmart’s Special Sale (happening today) and back to school promotions, Apple deals on newer generation items are sometimes stronger in July than they are during Black Friday.

You will often see amazing deals on the latest MacBooks at Costco in July

 Major Appliances: Big box stores like Lowe’s, Home Depot and Best Buy will continue their Independence Day deals well beyond July 4th with other retailers launching “Christmas In July” type appliance saving events.

 Summer Clothing and Bathing Suits: By this point, almost anything you’d need to enjoy the summer is on clearance or up to 40% off.

 Televisions: Other than the holiday quarter, television deals are the strongest in July on specific entry and mid-level models from Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy, specifically during the second two weeks of July.

👎🏼 3 Purchases To Skip In July

 Lawn Mowers: Manufacturers and retailers have a very short window where this product is in demand, so expect to pay close to full price in July. The discounts generally don’t begin until Labor Day.

 Flip-Flops and Sandals: Other than what I’ve seen offered at Sam’s Club, Costco and Aldi, most of the summer shoe deals are not widely accessible until August.

 Sunglasses: With the exception of some slight discounts on no-name brands and around 30% off on Prime Day for some very expensive Oakley and Ray-Ban sunglasses, your next best time to buy is October.
