What are the Best and Worst Things to Buy in June?

What to Buy in June

Movie Tickets
School’s out and movie theaters want to help! You’ll find $1 movie tickets in June to help kids beat the heat and offer families a fun, economical outing.

Outdoor Gear
In a shift from the typical sale pattern, you can pick up outdoor gear for a great price just when you need it! June is a great time to stock up on fishing, hiking, and camping gear.

Gym Membership & Equipment
Everyone’s forgotten their New Year’s resolution and the weather outside is calling their name. If you shop around and get quotes, you might be able to get an even better deal on those exercise classes or a gym membership. You’ll also find activewear on sale this month!

June marks the start of wedding season! You’ll find the most popular wedding gifts on sale this month, namely dishware and cookware. Take advantage of these sales and replace old dishes or stock up on pots, pans, and glassware.

Prices are the lowest right after students sell their copies back in June. If you know the materials needed for next semester, you could save big.

Thrift Items
Everyone has done their spring cleaning, so now is the time to get some great deals

Whether or not the tools are for Father’s Day, some pretty great deals happen just before mid-June.

Tropical Travel
You may think winter is the best time to buy that summer vacation, but some tropical destinations offer cheaper rates during the start of Hurricane season (luckily, storms are more likely to appear later in the season).


What not to Buy in June

We know you think there’s no better time to splurge on that high-end grill you’ve been drooling over all spring, but if you hold out on your purchase until August or September, you might be able to buy that grill for half the price!

Summer is a notoriously bad time to pick up a new TV. You won’t find much in the way of TV deals or sales this month, and you’ll be stuck paying full price—or more. It’s best to wait until fall when TV prices start dropping.

Laptops & School Supplies
If you’re in the market for a new laptop, it’s best to wait until back-to-school sales start in July and August. Laptops will be marked down, along with all the school supplies needed before September.

Try shopping around before you fill up on gas. This is where using your Carolinas Telco FCU Visa® 2% Cash Back credit card can help you save.

Seasonal Apparel
New summer clothing likely won’t see a discount until next month and hit clearance until August. Try shopping spring clearance or stocking up on coupons before you make the trip.

Designer Clothing
You’ll be wise to wait another month before giving your wardrobe an overhaul. Toward the end of July, you’ll be able to nab some sweet deals on name brands from high-end retailers.
