  • 1. Beauty and Skincare

    Since new fragrances are released for the spring and summer, and many people change up their skincare routine to suit the season, spring is a common time for beauty retailers to host sales. Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale, which includes a new selection of the retailer’s top products on sale for 50% off each day runs up until April 2. However, that’s not the only sale taking place on beauty and skincare essentials. Sephora will be kicking off its Spring Beauty Sale at the start of April.

  • 2. Car Maintenance Deals

    Did you know April is National Car Care Month? That means it’s time to show your vehicle some love and care after the long, bitterly cold months of winter. Take advantage of deals on new tires, auto parts, tuneups, and more.

    North Carolina Drivers Ranked 5th Best In America

    A new study ranks North Carolina Drivers 5th best in America. Yes, you did read that correctly, yes I had to read it twice too. The data isn't based on traffic statistics and violations, not things like whether people know that when a traffic light is out to treat it like a four-way stop.

  • 3. Last-Minute tax-prep software

    Taxes are coming up faster than you think. April 18 is tax day in the U.S. Tax-prep companies are competing over the stragglers, which equates to deals on tax software and even in-person services. Plus, restaurants and businesses offer deals for those looking to spend their refunds or are feeling the pain of owing the IRS.

    Can I deduct this from my taxes? I always ask myself. I'm sure this thought has crossed your mind too since money is tight for many of us. Many taxpayers have come up with a lot of zany arguments to justify their federal tax breaks.

  • 4. Spring Clothing

    If you’ve been tempted to buy spring apparel but you’re waiting for the sales, we’ve got good news, April is a great time to start adding spring clothing to your cart. We’re not at spring clearance level yet, of course, but you will find plenty of storewide sales during this month – and, unlike the clearance season, most sizes are still available.

  • 5. Outdoor Furniture and Gardening Gear Sales

    April is also National Lawn and Garden Month, and with the weather warming up, retailers know consumers can’t wait to head outside. Hence, plenty of sales on everything you need to enjoy the great outdoors, from gardening supplies to patio furniture. Expect to find gardening deals and patio furniture sales from Home Depot, Lowe’s, Overstock, Wayfair, and more.


  • 6. Easter Clothing and Decor

    Easter Sunday falls on April 17 this year, however, we’re already starting to see Easter sales kick-off. In the first half of the month, we expect these sales to grow, with more children’s on-theme apparel and pajamas marked down and gifts that tie into the Easter holiday. A few standout shopping destinations include Amazon, Hanna Andersson, Macy’s, Michaels, Target, and Walmart. In the second half of the month, after Easter, we will see prices plummet up to 80% on Easter chocolates and candies, but also Easter home decor. Check out Godiva and Lindt for the tasty treats and Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma for home decor and dining ware.

  • 7. Energy-Efficient Appliance

    Normally, we’d suggest waiting until Memorial Day weekend to shop for home appliances. But with Earth Day on April 22, be on the lookout for retailers lowering prices on energy-efficient models. Best Buy has held Earth Day sales in the past. Amazon is also known to discount items in its Warehouse Deals section (which sells used and refurbished products) in honor of Earth Day. Earth Day sales are typically announced a week before the holiday, so stay tuned.

  • 8. Home Improvement Sales

    Whether it’s blooming botanicals or hatching birds, spring is universal for rebirth and new beginnings. And nothing says “new beginnings” like refreshing your home with a fresh coat of paint or new furniture and decor. Retailers like Home Depot and Lowe’s are often your best destination for home renovation and revamp essentials. Lowe’s will be kicking off its Spring Fest sale on April 7, which runs through the entire month. Overstock is also known for running sales around this time period, as is Wayfair with its Way Day sale.
