Spruce Up Your Home, But Not Your Wardrobe — What to Buy in September

Spruce Up Your Home, But Not Your Wardrobe — What to Buy in September

August 31, 2020

School is in session and fall is just around the corner, so get cozy while we reveal this month’s coolest deals and let you know which items on your wish list are worth buying now, and which ones are going to stay there a little bit longer.

What to buy in September

Buy Now — iPhones

If you’re someone who doesn’t need the latest and greatest iPhone, then September is a great month for you to buy one. September is typically the month when Apple releases yet another series of new products, usually including the newest iPhone. What does this mean? It means that the “older” models of the iPhone typically go on sale as retailers make room for the shiny, new version. We’ve seen savings of up to $100 in the past years, so make sure you check stores like Walmart and Target to find the best prices on your next iPhone.

Buy Now — Mattresses

Last month we told you that Labor Day brings great sales on mattresses, and guess what? The sales are finally here! With Labor Day approaching, make sure you are keeping your eyes open for the mattress that is just right for you. Your local mattress stores will surely have awesome sales to help you get that perfect night’s sleep you’ve been dreaming of.

Buy Now — Appliances

Manufacturers release new models of popular appliances in September and October, meaning that retailers are eager to clear out their stock of products. You’ll find discounts of up to 40% on items like washing machines and dryers, ovens, and dishwashers, so take advantage of these deals now. Stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s are the way to go.

Buy Now — Bicycles

The start of fall means that cycling season is almost over. With new models of bikes being released in September, sporting goods stores and big box stores like Walmart are clearing space to showcase their new collection. It’s not all sad news though. Huge clearance sales on last season's stock means you can get yourself a brand new bike at an affordable price. There are still enough sunny days for you to break in your new ride, so waste no time and shop for bikes now!

What to Buy Later

Buy Later — Halloween Merchandise

If you’re a hard core Halloween enthusiast, then finding the right costume is no joke. September marks the time where retailers stock their shelves with fall merchandise, which includes Halloween costumes and decorations. We encourage you to get the ideas flowing, and to use the Flipp app to create your shopping list, but fight the temptation to buy Halloween items now. In October, you’ll find Halloween sales at big box stores like Target and pop-up shops like Spirit Halloween. If you wait just a bit longer, you’ll be spooked by how much you can save.

Buy Later — Electronics

We always want to buy the latest tech gadgets, but there are few times in a year where you can get a good deal on electronics. September is no different. With Black Friday only a few months away, our advice to you is to wait! We often see electronics heavily discounted for Black Friday sales, so write your Black Friday wish list and do your research, but don’t reach into your wallet just yet.

Buy Later — Fall Apparel

We all want to treat ourselves to some new clothes for sweater weather and fall photoshoots, but your 2019 items should do the trick for now. Fall apparel is always pricier at the beginning of the season when it’s in highest demand. We recommend waiting for Black Friday and holiday sales to find the best deals!

Now that you know what to buy and what to skip, you’re ready to find awesome deals all month long. Don’t forget to enjoy some coffee on September 29th for National Coffee Day, and remember to use the Flipp app to find even more great deals at your favorite stores.
