What to Buy In July

Do you know what to buy in July? Do you know what you definitely should NOT buy in July?

One thing I’ve noticed over the past 6 years of deal blogging is that sales are typically cyclical.

This goes for food, clothing, furniture, vehicles and almost everything.

You can see my full list of yearly sales cycles here, but here’s a list of what you should/shouldn’t buy in July.

Air Fair – Sometimes you can find good deals on air fare in July. Seems strange, but flights need to be filled and everyone is traveling! .

Laptops – Some back to school laptop sales start in July much to every teacher’s dismay.

PC Games – Many PC games go on sale during the month of July.

Air Conditioners – “On average, air conditioner deals we saw last July were 16% cheaper than deals we saw in June, and 14% cheaper than deals we saw in August. ” – Deal News
