It may be the shortest month of the year, but that doesn’t mean anything when it comes to grabbing a deal. Here are some of the best buys of the month of February:


The Consumer Electronics show and Photo Marketing Association convention happen in February, and with these events come new camera models in stores. So in February, you’re likely to be able to score a deep discount on last year’s perfectly good models.

Prom Dresses

Prom dresses start arriving in stores before spring hits, so if you shop early, you’ll be able to take advantage of a large selection of styles and prices.

Winter Coat

The longer you wait to buy a winter coat, the better the prices will be. As stores look to make room for spring inventory in February, you could score a killer deal on a winter coat to use for the rest of this winter and then again next winter.


Valentine’s Day may seem like a weird time to take advantage of cell phone deals, but around this holiday, you’ll see a lot of “buy one, get one free” sales to go along with the theme of the holiday. So if you and a spouse, friend or family member are looking for new phones, February may be a great time to buy.


Retailers are trying to make room for new spring inventory in February, so you should keep an eye out for “as-is” floor samples in good condition right around President’s Day. You should find major markdowns this way.
