May?!? How on earth did that happen? Here are a few of the bargains and deals I expect to see this May:
Pottery Barn Kids started the month off with a warehouse clearance sale last year with up to 60% off bedding, rockers, Anywhere Chairs, and more
Watch for Cinco de Mayo deals. Crazy 8, for instance, had $5 tees, tanks shorts and more last year on May 5.
Walgreens photo gave customers a free 8×10 enlargement just before Mothers Day last year.
Kohls usually runs a Friends and Family sale around the second week of the month with an extra 20% off coupon.
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.
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 a $50 kids’ shoe order.
Lands End ran a Friends and Family sale just after mid-month last year with 25% off.
Old Navy’s baby sale should begin some time between the 10th and 15th.
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 24 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.
