Which items should you buy in June, and which sales should you keep waiting for? Take a look at this list from dealnews.com of good and bad June buys to help you find this month’s best deals.
Lingerie (best) -- June is the month of Victoria's Secret's famed Semi-Annual Sale. Other lingerie deals in June include Frederick's of Hollywood, Maidenform, Freshpair and Bare Necessities.
Apple purchases (worst) -- Apple is holding its annual developers conference in June, and while CEO Tim Cook hasn't hinted at any new hardware, you may want to hold off on that new iPod just to be sure.
Caribbean vacation (best) -- While June is technically the start of the Caribbean's hurricane season, most storms don't form until later in the season, meaning you can score some great last-minute deals on vacations there this month.
Beef (worst) -- Grilling season is here, but beef prices have hit an all-time high thanks to years of drought that have thinned cattle herds. Now might be the time to try some new chicken recipes -- or maybe even veggie burgers.
TVs (best) -- Prices on 55-inch 3D LCD HDTVs hit new lows in June for the second consecutive month. If you don't have that much room, off-brand 46-inch HDTVs are at an all-time low of $329, while brand-name 46-inch models have been holding steady at $500 for the past two months.
Grills (worst) -- There aren't many deals to be had on grills in June, but you could save as much as $200 or more on a mid- to high-end grill if you wait until July.
Doughnuts (best) -- June 7 is National Doughnut Day, and bakeries will be doling out freebies all that day. Krispy Kreme, Dunkin' Donuts and Tim Horton's all offered a free doughnut on National Doughnut Day last year.
Laptops (best) -- School may be the farthest thing from anyone's mind in June, but it's typically the start of back-to-school laptop sales, which frequently bundle a mainstream laptop with a printer, gaming console or gift card.
Movie theater purchases (best) -- Because it's summer blockbuster season, look for freebies when you purchase movie tickets online, like a discounted second ticket or a download with your order. Also be on the lookout for free preview screenings.
Tools (best) -- Tool sales abound in June as families look for the perfect gift for dad on Father's Day.
