Transcript for Labor Day weekend discounts
Back now with labor day discounts. The holiday weekend promises big savings but will you get more bank for your buck if you buy now or wait until later? Life-style expert Anna de Souza is here to lead us in buy or wait. Anna, good morning to you. Let's start with outdoor gear and recreation. What's your guess, guys? I'm going to say wait. I'm going to say buy. Anna, what's the call? All right, the call is to buy. Get those grills, that patio furniture, that summer swimwear. Swimsuits. These were all panic buys in the beginning of the summer, but now these retailers are trying to make way for fresh fall and winter merchandise, so if you're willing to sit on these items until next summer, it might be so some deals to think about, back country has 50% off sitewide, and they're offering really great discounts on outdoor clothing like this north face pullover for $82. 70% off clearance items over at rei. They even have 40% off a two-person tent from eureka, and finally if you're looking for a grill, you might want to check out Lowe's. They have deals starting at $45. That's pretty good. So autumn almost here. Let's talk about fall clothing. We're talking fall clothing, not the summer sale stuff? Right? Fall, I'm going to say wait. Wait. Oh, yes. Oh, good. You should absolutely wait. This fall merchandise is just hitting stores in August. So if you're willing to give it a little bit of breathing room like a month or two before you pick up the back to school or back to work wear, you're going to be able to save a bundle. In 2020 these retailers are really struggling. They're pushing out more coupon codes than ever before, so take advantage of it. So if you can't wait for the scarf or you can't wait for fall boots, you might still be able to get a great deal because these retailers are desperate to transition mall Goers into click and ship buyers so they're offering really great deals even still. And, of course, everybody loves a discount on mattresses and bedding, which can be incredibly expensive. What do you guys think, buy or wait? Buy? I don't know. I'm going to say wait. Well, the answer is buy, but you may bring your paddles. You may think that it's memorial day that you want to pick up mattresses but actually labor day has some excellent deals, and these retailers are desperate to get you in, they're throwing in a bunch of freebies like free pillows, springs, mattress toppers, but don't just think the big national retailers, think the small specialty ones as well. Allswell is offering 20% off, Tempur-Pedic up to $500 off and of course you're going to need bedding, so a great place to start is bed, bath & beyond, 30% off, and Macy's has 65% off deals on quilts and bedspreads too. Let's talk tech. A lot of people looking to upgrade. Guys, are you a buy or a wait? I'll say wait. I'll say wait too. And what's the right answer, Anna? You do want to wait for black Friday. It's the best time to shop for electronics and gadgets and, you know, thinking about, you know, Black Friday and how it's going to look this year, these sales are going to move online to minimize large crowds, of course, so wait for them or if you're willing, wait all the way through the end of the holidays. These stores are going to be filtering through returns and replenishing their stock, so there might be a really great chance you might be able to get a great deal after the holidays too. Great job. Thank you very much. I'm very sorry that whit made the inappropriate joke. I'll have a word with him on the commercial break. In the meantime -- You won't be the only one.
