BEST DAYS OF THE WEEK TO MAKE PURCHASES

6 1
What's the best day to shop? That depends on what you want to buy. Here's a day by day break down on the best day to shop to get the most for your money.  MONDAYS: CARS: Dealerships are more open to negotiating on Mondays when the pressure is high to recover from lackluster weekend traffic. ELECRONICS: Gadgets like computers, TVs, digital cameras and even video games run 2% to 4% cheaper on Mondays .Manufacturers like Dell and Sony tend to introduce discounts on Mondays and retailers are quick to pass these on. DRESS PANTS & SUNGLASSES: On average dress pants (and Men's Apparel) are 48% less and sunglasses run about 55% less on Mondays.   TUESDAYS: AIRFARE:Most airlines post domestic fare sales on Monday evening,sales normally last 3 days so you can usually get those deals through Thursday. WEDNESDAY: GAS: Fill up between Wednesday and Thursday to beat the weekend price hikes. JEWELERY: Supposedly women tend to shop in the middle of the week, so online jewelry prices start dropping on Wednesdays and sales on accessories continue on Thursday. SHOES & KIDS CLOTHING: On average children's clothes run 40% less and shoes 38% less. THURSDAYS: HANDBAGS: In general they tend to run about 36% less online. FRIDAYS: Not many discounts on Fridays with the exception of accessories such as belts,scarves & jewelery,which tend to be on average 42% less. SATURDAYS: BOOKS: No clear reason found,but books tend to run 11% less. INTIMATES & OUTERWEAR: Intimates average 37% cheaper and Outerwear runs about 51% less on this day. SUNDAYS: GROCERIES & DRUGSTORE ITEMS: New coupons combined with special pricing in newspaper inserts may mean great deals on food, toothpaste, and more basics. SWIMSUITS: online swimsuits tend to run about 52% less on Sundays.

If it makes you feel any better, it does that when I've submitted questions/pages as well.

Cool that's some good info. I think The video games run cheaper on mondays because Tuesdays are, for some reason, when new video games are released.
