Best sales for the month of June

Posted May 28, 2014


As we all know, many sales for food and retail items are seasonal. Here are some of the products that typically offer the best buys during the month of June.

Retail Deals in June

According to RetailMeNot.com, June is the best time to save on the following retail items:


Dishes and Home Décor – These go on sale in the month that’s come to be associated with nuptials. (Fun fact: 17% of U.S. weddings take place in June.)

Gym Memberships/Equipment – Look good on the dance floor and prep in advance!

- Take advantage of the gym coupons or “fitness equipment” coupons at RetailMeNot. Look spiffy by getting coupons for a site called Rent The Runway, which rents designer dresses and gowns. Through the end of June you can get a coupon for $25 off your first rental, which will let you wow ’em on the dance floor.

- Guys: You can get discounts on your monkey suits, too. Check out the tuxedo category at Retail Me Not for deals like $40 off a tux rental at Men’s Wearhouse.

- Sportsman’s Guide has up to 75% off fitness and exercise equipment.

- Sports Authority is promoting the lowest prices of the season on treadmills and ellipticals – “a good variety of equipment for up to 50% off,” says Joe Smyth of RetailMeNot. The store also offers free delivery on orders of $999.99 or more (after discounts).

Tools - Tool sales are associated with the other big June event: Father’s Day.

- Sears is currently offering $15 off a $75 tool order.

- Starting June 2nd, Home Depot will have a “tools, not ties” sale with Ryobi power tools for $99 – and you can also get free shipping in the contiguous 48 states.

I also recommend hitting the clearance racks for winter and spring clothes now when they are 50 - 75% off or more.

Food Deals in June

June is the time to stock up on everything picnic related including ketchup, mustard, pickles, hot dogs, paper plates and more. During May, June and July, you'll find plenty of coupons to match with sales for these types of products.  If you stock up now, you'll have enough condiments to hold you for the next couple months so you don't get in a pickle by running out!

As Steph pointed out in the comments section, summer is also the best time to get great produce prices.  If you grow your own produce, the prices are even better!

Is there anything else you find is a great deal this time of year?

    Magnum! Magnum! LOL ;)

    Thanks for the helpful list! It's great to know when to get the best price on everything.

    Last year around June there were good deals on ice cream (Magnum, anyone?) and frozen popsicles...I'm still finding the red, white, and blue bomb pops tucked in nooks & crannies in the freezer LOL!! Agree with Steph on the produce, the Farmer's Market is my friend :) Late June and right after 4th of July are good times to check out clothing and places that have bi-annual clearance such as Bath & Body works

    There are great sales on produce also b/c it's in season in the summer. :) I buy as much as I can & freeze it to eat through the winter when produce prices are higher.
