Days to Save: Knowing When to Shop at Your Favorite Stores

Posted on 10/16/2014

Here's a way to save big at your favorite stores that doesn't involve clipping coupons or downloading apps. It just requires having really good timing. That's right-- knowing the best days to save can be key in spending less.

It's a great idea to start your week at CVS. New sales start on Sundays, but markdowns typically happen on Mondays. That means there should still be inventory on this week's hottest sales and you'll also have the best shot at scoring clearance deals.

Do you love to troll the end caps at Target for clearance deals? Well according to Target pros, markdowns happen almost every day of the week in various departments. Tuesday is a great day to score new clearance items though because that's when associates tackle domestics, women's clothing pets and grocery items.

Love the magic of Macy's? You'll love it even more on Wednesdays before their famous One-Day Sales. That's when experts say you can score the best selection at the best price. Keep an eye on the sales page at for deals you can stack.

As the holidays approach pretty much anyone with kids will be in the market for toys. According to experts Thursday is the best day to hit Toys R Us. Why? That's the day they cut prices. So if you want the best selection on clearance merchandise, head to Toys R Us on Thursday for marked down games and toys. Same goes for Babies R Us.

Friday can be a great day for buying clothes online. That's because retailers like Gap, American Eagle and Victoria's Secret issue brand new coupon codes in an effort to rake in weekend sales.

If you're a fan of Kohl's there are two days a month when the deals are the biggest: the second and fourth Saturday. The store makes price cuts on those Saturdays, plus you can combine those sales with coupons to save even more.
