Stop paying full price: Here are the best days of the week to buy everything on sale

April 7, 2017

Feel too busy during the work week to run errands? Know that a little planning ahead — and skipping happy hour for a targeted post-work shopping spree — can actually save you tons of cash.

That’s because weekend shoppers actually miss out on sales and discounts for many items, including booze, ice cream, produce, cleaning products, beauty supplies and other stuff. Analyzing years of retail trends, shopping app Ibotta found that none of those surveyed products were less expensive if purchased on a Saturday or Sunday.

Blame weekend competition from other consumers, said Bryan Leach, Ibotta’s CEO: “Saturday and Sunday were the worst or most expensive days to shop for most products, but had the highest traffic,” he said in a phone interview.
