August is here and that means summer is winding down. Another year of school is about to start and soon the leaves will begin falling off the trees.
You might be asking what deals this month has to offer. The experts at Slickdeals are here to help.
Read on for more about the best things to buy this month:
You might as well call August “back-to-school” month and, as such, expect deals on all the stuff you’ll need from general school supplies to shoes, laptops, and (dorm room/college) furniture. Make sure to bookmark the Slickdeals Back-to-School Deals page to check for the best deals when you’re ready to shop.
If you’re shopping for a new laptop, Apple via its Apple Education Store is offering a deal on a 2019 Macbook and Beats Studio3 Headphones starting at $999. If you prefer a PC, check out Dell’s Back to School Sale with all refurbished laptops priced under $299.
For the basics, visit Office Depot OfficeMax for deals like 70-page spiral notebooks for 25 cents and stop by Target for Crayola 10-count Broadline Markers for 99 cents. Also, Amazon has an ongoing offer for six months free Prime Membership for students, so take advantage if you haven’t yet.
New clothes for the new school year may also be in order. Bloomingdales is offering up to 50% off select clearance items during their Summer Break Sale. Nordstrom is having their annual Anniversary Sale running through August 4.
The end of the summer brings discounts on summer-related goods. Moosejaw’s Summer Sale features summer clearance clothing, footwear and gear for up to 40% off. Playstation is also having their Summer Sale so, check out the list of price drops on games to see if there’s anything you want.
Early Labor Day deals are another way to save this month. We anticipate Macy’s will offer an extra 20% off during its Labor Day Sale. Also, expect deals on appliances from Lowe’s and Home Depot during their Labor Day Sales.
