AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Presidents Day has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the deals are done. Pointing the way toward savings is RetailMeNot shopping and trends expert Sara Skirboll. "Retailers use the change of seasons as a way to encourage consumers to shop—and ultimately save," Skirboll says. "This year is no different, which is great news for those looking to swap out their fragrances, upgrade their accessories and book a vacation."
Shoppers can also plan ahead for next winter. "What I love about March sales is that families can save on items for the whole year," Skirboll says, "not just for spring."
Save Now, Benefit Later
March is the month to prep for next winter and snag cold-weather apparel and sporting equipment. As spring approaches, retailers are motivated to get larger-size winter gear and apparel into shoppers' hands, so look for savings on skis, snowboards and outdoor accessories. Not an outdoorsman? Sweaters, outerwear and boots will also see deep discounts. Deals will start to thin out by April, so don't waste any time!
Pack up the Savings
Most of the country is still experiencing winter, so naturally travelers are dreaming of warm-weather getaways. With this in mind, stores will be discounting luggage, travel bags and smart suitcases. Looking to update your travel gear? Try retailers like:
Savvy Spring Breakers
With luggage at the ready, it's time to book that travel package. Vacationers can save with a variety of travel deals, which include flights, hotels, cruises and even train tickets. Those who love the high seas should book soon, though, as March is the end of what the travel industry calls "Wave Season," when many cruise lines offer discounts. Regardless of the preferred destination or mode of transportation, would-be tourists can look at Hotels.com, Hotwire and others for the best savings.
Warm-weather styles are starting to roll out, along with the accessories to match. Shoppers can snag designer sunglasses, purses, watches and more for a steal. Don't be discouraged by the "last year" language—some styles are timeless, and saving money is always on-trend!
Smells Like Springtime
If Valentine's Day brought you chocolate and flowers but not a new fragrance, now is the time to get spritzy with your shopping. New spring scents and collections will be out soon, and retailers need to make room for all the new inventory. Now is the time for shoppers to score a deal and get fresh as a daisy.
