What to buy in January
Here’s what to buy to save big in January.
Even though April 15th may seem like a long time away, it will be here before you know it. Buy your tax software now. There are offers for early risers. Set some money aside now if you are considering hiring a pro.
A high-end television
Watch the Super Bowl on KY3, with a brand new TV. If you want a high-end TV with bells and whistles, now is the time to buy. You’ll always find discounts the week after the big game, but the selection might not be that great.
Plan Presidents’ Day sales in advance
These sales begin next month. This will be the best time of year to buy major appliances like refrigerators, washers and dryers. The same goes for mattresses.
You won’t see such low prices on workout gear until June. Also consider buying used. It might help you decide if a treadmill is a better workout companion or a place to dry clothes.
The Horizon 7.0 AT Treadmill is a best buy from Consumer Reports and $ 999 from Horizon Fitness. CR says some high-end ellipticals can cost over $ 2,500, but you can get a good machine for less than half that price.
The Schwinn 470 elliptical retails for $ 999 at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy.
If you are thinking of purchasing a fitness tracker to help you reach your New Year’s resolutions, there are plenty of options to suit all needs and budgets. Some have fancy features like sleep tracking, while others are much simpler and stripped-down and will count your steps and give you just the right amount of other data.
The Garmin Forerunner 35 fitness tracker is another CR Best Buy. It costs $ 120 at Walmart, passes most CR tests, and has a claimed nine-day battery life.
Ways to save on a gym membership
Request a free trial offer. Request a free lesson. Ask if you can bring a friend. Ask About Discount — Military, Teacher, Student or Senior Discount. Check with your insurance or your employer. Agreements could mean free membership.
Do not rush. Take your time. Read the fine print. Historically, you’ll save the most if you sign up in the last week of January. Gyms want to hit quotas, and you could be successful with a little negotiation.
Also, order those Valentine’s Day roses now. Or you’ll pay top dollar in a few weeks.
