4 Great Hints – What to Buy in October

Very few things can rival the change in seasons from summer to fall.  And that includes the change in DEAL seasons, too!  It’s officially fall, and the unofficial kickoff to the holiday season. Start your shopping engines, because this is what to buy in October.

  • Jeans:  Surprised by this?  Jeans hit the retailers in August and September, which means that by October, they are on sale and ready for discounts!

Where to shop: Old Navy, Kohl’s, JCPenney, Gap

  • Outdoor Furniture:  Off and on throughout the year, we see patio furniture go on sale, then skyrocket in price, then go on sale again.  This is one of the last times during the year to grab it at discounted prices, before we see it drop again around May. Score grills, chairs, umbrellas, fire pits and more on sale, as people start moving inside to hang out.

Where to shop: Home Depot, Wayfair, Walmart

  • Air Conditioners: It’s off-season, which means sales sales, sales!  The discounts on air conditioners and window units drop drastically during October. Plus, it’s much easier to get an HVAC tech out to your home to install one!

Where to shop: Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walmart

  • Camping Gear: It’s camping season, and retailers have been holding onto camping gear for a few months now.  Since you’re more likely to hit the hiking trails this month (unlikely snow & unlikely heat wave), retailers are ready for you with big discounts.

Where to shop: Bass Pro Shop, Cabela’s, Walmart
