Cool ideas to save money in September

Even when summer ends and fall begins, you can still get great deals during the month of September. September is between summer and the coolest month of October prior to the holidays. These first months of fall provide abundant opportunities to save money. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to save. Here’s your September shopping guide.

Labor Day Sales

Many retail companies price items to sell over the long weekend. Look for discounts on clothes, mattresses and appliances. It is also a perfect time to buy an HD TV.

End of summer sale

Many retailers will list their hot weather items for sale. Anything from grills, lawn mowers, plants, patio furniture, and garden tools. So stock up on the summer items you need now at rock-bottom prices.


September is the perfect time to buy a new vehicle. Most of the newer models hit the market, while the older models are available at considerable discounts. Car dealerships will also try to meet their third quarter goals. Buyers can use this to their advantage and negotiate a bit more towards the end of the month. Whether you’re shopping for a new or used car credit union, you have loan options to fit your budget. Most credit unions will go beyond low rates and offer Guaranteed Auto Protection and Mechanical Breakdown Protection.


It is a perfect time to visit the local farmers market. Did you know that in many areas September is the last month that farmers can sell fresh produce to reduce their prices as much as possible?

New iPhone

The iPhone 7s is expected to launch in September. This means lower prices on older models, like the iPhone 6. You can find many used iPhones for sale when Apple users decide to upgrade their current phone. This is an ideal time to purchase a new mobile phone.


Christmas and Valentine’s Day are the most popular months for jewelry retailers. That’s why fall is the best time to buy jewelry from last season at a decent discount.


In many areas of the country you can turn off your air conditioning and open those windows. If you’re like me, I prefer the outdoors. And, in September, the outside air is still not cold, so you can save on your electricity bill.


September is a perfect time to travel. Anytime between Labor Day and the holiday season there are fewer crowds and there are numerous discounts and travel packages. After the kids go back to school, hotels are less crowded and cruises are cheaper until Thanksgiving. September is known as hurricane season in the Caribbean, but there are many areas that rarely receive storms. Do some research and check out discounted packages at all-inclusive resorts.

Free coffee

And I think I saved the best for last. September 29 is National Coffee Day and that means a free cup of coffee and coupons. You can check the internet for a list of your favorite retailers that will offer free java cups!

Enjoy the remaining canine days of the summer and be sure to take advantage of those September deals.
