May?!? How on earth did that happen? Here are a few of the bargains and deals I expect to see this May:
May 4th is Star Wars Day, so expect to see several Star Wars-themed deals at clothing stores, shoe stores, and toys stores online. Last year Amazon offered up to 60% off Star Wars items as a Deal of the Day. Target and Walmart also participated.
Watch for Cinco de Mayo deals. Crazy 8, for instance, had $5 tees, tanks shorts and more last year on May 5. 6pm.com had $25 dollar shoe deals.
Walgreens photo gave customers a free 8×10 enlargement just before Mothers Day last year.
Kohls usually runs a Friends and Family sale during the first or second week of the month with an extra 20% off coupon.
Watch for Old Navy to run their Baby and Kids sale during the first or second week of the month. Expect up to 50% off kids’ items and 30% off items for grown ups.
Fathers’ Day deals should start up mid-month. Look to save up to 40% on photo gifts like photo mugs beginning just after Mother’s Day.
Keep an eye on 6pm.com for great deals on kids’ shoes starting around the middle of the month.
I’m hoping we’ll see the same Fisher-Price and Mattel Deals of the Day at Amazon that we saw last year at mid-month.
Watch for kid shoe deals at Amazon, too. Last year just after week one we saw a coupon for 20% off.
REI’s Anniversary Sale should start just after mid-month, too. Look for deals on bikes, gear and more.
Look for Memorial Day sales to start around the 18th at stores like Carters, Oshkosh, Disney Store, Stride Rite and Crazy8. You’ll find up to 50% off swimwear, up to 50% off sandals, great deals on shorts and tees and more.
Old Navy offered 50% off all swimwear around May 20 last year.
Yard sales are in full swing! They’ll start winding down in May in warmer areas. You folks from cooler climes will enjoy them well into June. More about how to score big at yard sales here. You can use Yard Sale Treasure Map to find sales near you.
This month should see the return of $1 kids’ movies at various local theaters. The programs should last throughout the summer. I’ll update you when I have more info.
Note: BC Predicts information is based on previous years’ sales. Stores and brands don’t always repeat their sales, but they very often do.
