Washers and Dryers
Major appliance trade shows and events such as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) normally take place in January and February. These trade shows often feature new washing machine models and technologies which will begin to hit stores near March. Our analysis of the data suggests that this is the best time to purchase older models that are being cleared off the floor to make room for new merchandise.
New furniture is released biannually every spring and fall; March marks the absolute end of winter when retailers look to make room for new spring furniture stock by liquidating last year's styles.
March marks the end of Q1, which means dealers and salespeople have quotas to meet. Despite COVID straining the new and used truck supply in recent years, you can still take advantage of this sales quota trend from both new truck dealerships and used car lots.
Manufacturers start rolling out their new refrigerator models during spring, which means retailers use Q1 to sell last year’s models, making room for new inventory. You can find particularly low prices towards the end of Q1 (read: March) as the remaining stock must be sold.
March marks the start of spring: the time manufacturers release new mattress models. This means more options in the store and great deals on last year's models. (After all, who cares if your mattress is this year's model or last year's?)
March brings us closer to the tail end of "Wave Season", the largest cruise discount period of the year. This is when cruise companies run lots of promotions in preparation for people booking spring and summer cruises.
Mid-march marks the beginning of spring, which is when manufacturers start shipping their latest models to retailers ahead of the new growing season. By March, vendors are already fully stocked with their new supplies. This means that older models on the floor will be more likely to see steep discounts or liquidations. Some manufacturers offer seasonal discounts on new models too to capture your attention.
March marks the end of Q1, which means dealers and salespeople have quotas to meet. Despite COVID straining the new and used car supply in recent years, you can still take advantage of this sales quota trend from both new car dealerships and used car lots.
March officially marks the end of winter. Retailers, especially big-box stores, want to clear out their snowblower inventory before spring rolls around so they won't need to store it for another 7 months, after which new models will be rolling out anyways. This makes March the absolute best time of the year to buy snow blowers.
