Summer is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to stock up on some must-have deals before they go away. With the start of a new season, stores are looking to clear out their inventory to make way for new items — but which items should we keep an eye out for? We have the inside scoop! Check out our guide on the best items to buy in June, and items you might want to hold off buying until later.
Swimwear and Lingerie — Buy Now
Although this summer might look a little different, the sun will be shining so we should take advantage and catch a few rays from our backyards, balconies, and parks (while following physical distancing guidelines of course). Luckily Victoria's Secret brought back their swimwear line, and what better time to splurge than during their Semi-Annual Sale that kicks off in June?
The best part? Target and other retailers tend to follow suit, making this the perfect time to put together your ideal beach outfit and take your online shopping addiction to a new level. Throw in some cute bras and panties while you’re at it. Treat yourself!
Father’s Day Gifts — Buy Now
We can’t forget that June is the month we remind Dad how much he means to us. Father’s Day falls on June 21 this year so make sure you are prepared to shower your old man with the gifts he deserves. From power tools to sporting goods, you should have no problem finding great deals at his favorite stores like Dick’s Sporting Goods, Academy Sports + Outdoors, or Home Depot. Get the man the power drill he’s been dreaming of, you won’t regret it.
Spring Apparel — Buy Now
We know what you’re thinking...you’re ready to leave chilly days behind and bask in the summer heat. Why would you even bother shopping for spring apparel? Two words: clearance sales. Stores want to make way for their new summer collections, and in order to do that, spring apparel goes on sale.
As a savvy shopper, you’ll know that staple items like pants and hoodies are needed year-round, so you might as well get them at a reduced price. Not only that, but spring apparel can be great for a night out or if you’re going to an air-conditioned place where it might get chilly.
Gym Clothes & Equipment — Buy Now
With the majority of gyms closed during these difficult times, home fitness has become the next best thing. This can be a bit of an adjustment for those gym rats out there, but what better way to get yourself motivated than treating yourself to some new gear. Check out the latest activewear and footwear deals at great stores like Target and Old Navy by using the Flipp App, and start your at-home fitness journey today!
Frozen Treats — Buy Now
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Summer marks the start of the constant need to consume the best frozen snacks. Our local grocers have our backs on this one, so you'll start to notice special promotions on your frozen favorites. Stock up this month so you can have the best treats on the street for the rest of the summer.
Grills — Buy Later
Nice weather means an obvious need to fire up that grill and make the perfect BBQ dinner. With grilling on everyone’s mind, naturally, you may want to treat yourself to a brand new grill, but this is something that you won’t want to do in June. You’re not the only one with this idea and retailers know this.
Higher demand for a product means higher prices, because they know you’ll pay anything to get those perfect grill marks. But stay strong and make do with what you’ve got. The longer you can hold out on replacing your grill, the cheaper it will be. We promise that waiting will make that first bite of your juicy burger fresh off your new grill that much better.
Summer Clothing — Buy Later
We all want our hot girl - or guy- summer, but trust us when we say work with what you’ve got, unless you want to break the bank. The hottest summer looks are released around June, meaning the word “sale” is not something you should expect to see.
We know it can be hard, but persevere and don’t buy those shoes yet. The shirt you’ve been eyeing will go on sale later in the season, probably around August, so save some money and show your existing wardrobe some love.
Now that you know what to shop and what to skip, we hope you’re ready to enjoy the summer. Don’t forget to use the Flipp app to get Dad that perfect gift and to find even more savings at stores near you.
