Best deals in September

Who wants a new car? If the answer is you, this is your month. Lots of great deals can be had in September – from bicycles to shoes to outdoor furniture – but car sales may be the best.

The kids are back in school and the summer sales are over. September is a month when savvy shoppers can take advantage of lingering back to school sales and if you’re the kind of person who looks for Christmas bargains early – or if you’re ready to treat yourself - this is the month for you.

1. New (and used) cars

Your local dealer has cars to get off the lot this month. Now is your time to strike. The basics of smart car buying apply: Know what you’re looking for, do your research. Armed with the proper information, you’ll get the right car at the right price.

“The introduction, excitement, and new technology of the new models bring a lot of attention to the brands. Dealerships need to make room for these cars. The manufacturer will offer more rebates and lower finance rates,” said Tim Foley, Audi Sales Manager at Mattie Audi.

Foley says car buyers need not expect a bait and switch or any other shenanigans at the dealership.

“A consumer who has done his or her research can tell the dealer they know what invoice is and the rebates that they qualify for. Tell the dealer what you want for your trade, but be realistic.” Not only do dealerships need to move new cars, but there’s plenty of action in the used market as well.

“It’s actually the best time to buy a used car. The dealer knows that in December and January is when the Kelly Blue Book, Edmonds, and NADA mark the used car values down the most. It’s in the dealership’s best interest to have as few used cars on the lot as possible when that time comes.”

Shoes
2. Shoes

September boasts a ton of good bargains to help round out your fall shoe ensemble. If you’re willing to shop online, these deals can be pretty significant.

For instance, you can save $10 off Crocs if you use the code FALL10; or get free shipping on your entire purchase with the code SHIPCROCS.

Over at Famous Footwear expect by one get one deals of 50% off with an additional 15 % with the code BTS15D.




Outdoor Furniture
3. Outdoor furniture

No one is thinking about outdoor furniture when the weather turns cold, that’s why this is your time to pounce on some great deals on furniture and even barbecue grills.

Also, expect floor models of said products to be slashed as retailers make room for new holiday displays. These deals can be found online as well. For instance, Max Furniture has some staggering deals for high-end outdoor furniture to the tune of 50% off on some items. There are many to choose from, including their 6pc Alanna Outdoor Wicker Resin Seating Set. They say the regular price is $7,695. They dropped that down to $3,895 and then cut it to $2,595 in time for the September sale season.





Car accessories
4. Car accessories

Look to the big box stores for good deals on everything from floor mats to break pads this month. Sears is offering $40 off online orders of $400 or more with promo code AUTO40. They also have a ton of car accessories on sale.

The Thule Evolution 1600 Car Top Carrier, regularly $429.99, is on sale for $386.99. That’s a savings of $43. You’ll find similar deals online at other retailers as well as on the shelves of your local automotive goods store this month.




Bikes
5. Bicycles

New bike models are on their way. And while bikes are modern marvels, the basic technology hasn’t changed in a long time. If you don’t need the newest models – and most of us don’t – you can find great deals this month.

“September is a great time of year to buy a bike for several reasons. First of all it is the end of the current model year and the beginning of the next so it’s a good chance to get yourself the latest and greatest before anyone else,” said Jack Madden, owner of Legend Bicycle in Providence, RI. “If you are in the market for a reliable, well-built bicycle, a specialty bicycle store is the only way to go. Look for a store that assembles their new bikes on-site and one that has a service area. Usually there is a service plan that is included in the sale of any new bicycle. Avoid stores that do not offer this follow-up service.”

Before you walk into the store, think about what kind of riding you want to do. Are you a college student looking to get around town? Do you want a bike for fitness? On road? Off road? “The best bike shop for you will carry a selection of bikes and accessories for your type of riding. Look for a store that is in or near your neighborhood so that you can ride there if you need to. It’s a great way to shop locally because the benefits go both ways.”

At one point, Jenner even turned the tables on Ripa, asking when she first identified as a female. “Just think about that,” she said, pointing her manicured finger at Ripa. “When did you know you were a girl?” Jenner then made Leguizamo her target, asking him how he enjoyed dressing in drag in the 1995 comedy, “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything!

    • Fox News anchor accuses White House of 'trying to cover up Michael Flynn scandal'

      A Fox News anchor has accused the White House of behaving in a way consistent with a “cover-up” over the actions of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Although the network is frequently accused of being a cheerleader for President Donald Trump, host Shepard Smith did not hold back in his comments, made after the House Oversight Committee said Mr Flynn appeared to have broken the law in receiving payments from Russian organisations and the Turkish Government. Mr Flynn resigned in February after it emerged he had misled Vice President Mike Pence over conversations he had with a Russian ambassador.
