Now’s a good time to buy many fruits, vacuum cleaners and refrigerators, we learned from a recent edition of "Clark Howard" on the Headline News cable channel.
Cost of many fruits plummets in May because it’s their bloom time. Well, not here, but somewhere.
So good deals can be found this month at the grocery store for blueberries, strawberries, pineapples, cantaloupes, cherries and some other seasonal produce. What makes these deals even sweeter is the fruits also are at their tastiest now.
OK, so we understand fruit in season is abundant and cheaper. But why is now a good time to buy vacuum cleaners and refrigerators?
We also learned from that consumer program that a lot of vacuum cleaners are made by Japanese companies who end their fiscal year March 31. That’s when they roll out their new models and old ones get discounted. So look for these clearance sales to get a good deal on perfectly good, band new vaccuums.
The same’s true with refrigerators this time of year. New models are being moved in, so prices on last year’s models are slashed to clear out last year’s stock.
