Most shoppers spent the month of December frantically purchasing gifts for loved ones and then had January to make returns and take advantage of after-Christmas sales. So come February, the last thing anyone wants to do is shop.

But instead of running from retail, you should take a second to rethink your shopping hiatus because there are specific retail categories that offer tremendous savings all month long. With Valentine’s Day, the biggest NFL game of the year and the Olympics taking place in February, it’s a good month to consider buying a few specific things like home upgrades, big-screen televisions and, if you’re in the market, even dating services.

Farewell, Winter Clothing

Spring Apparel

As we start to bid farewell to the winter season, sales begin to warm up for all things spring. Retailers will roll out new apparel and get shoppers ready for the warmer weather. The three-day Presidents Day weekend is a great opportunity to get out of town, but it’s also an excellent time to shop. This holiday brings significant discounts because stores want to clear shelves and make space for new inventory.

Home Upgrades

Home Goods

Presidents Day can also offer savings on home goods of all kinds. Sales for different types of bedding continue into this month as well as deals and steals for bath items, furniture, bakeware, small kitchen gadgets, cookware and appliances. It’s prime time for shoppers to get their homes in tip-top shape with new items before they tackle spring cleaning in the coming months.

Support the Red, White and Blue

Fan Gear

Although the biggest football game of the year might be over, the deals on sports apparel definitely aren’t. Major savings are available on all types of licensed team gear, whether your team made the Super Bowl or not. And for the other type of patriot (those who support Team USA), Olympics gear is on sale now as well.

Tune Into Television Deals

Big Screen TV's
Attention, sports fans: Deals on electronics are not strictly reserved for Black Friday! The Winter Olympics are running all month long, and TV manufacturers use that big-time event to highlight big savings on big-screen television sets. Another reason for the markdowns is that new models will be released in March and April.

Swipe Right for Savings

Dating Services

Between family, friends, work and all the other things called “life,” it can be hard to find—and keep—a partner. Online dating sites and apps can help, especially since the peak of dating season is just around the corner. As users on all platforms scramble to find a match, dating sites can offer up to 75% off enrollment fees to encourage those looking for love. As technology seems to gain a presence in every area of life, online dating is now among the most popular ways for couples to meet.
