Insights & Deals:
According to the National Restaurant Association Super Bowl Sunday is the busiest day of the year for pizza, which means that pizza shops are going to be slashing prices. If you’re paying full price for pizza, you’ve already lost the game! If you go to RetailMeNot.com right now you’ll find 25% off regular menu-priced orders from Papa John's and Domino's has a great deal for Super Bowl 51! They’re offering Large 3-topping pizzas for $7.99 when you carry-out!
Hosting a party requires a decent-sized television, or if you’re lucky, more than one television to broadcast the big game. The good news here is that electronics deals aren’t just reserved for Black Friday, which is an all too distant memory away. According to Nielsen, over 111 million Americans watched the Super Bowl last year and I can assure you, it was most likely not on their iPads. Check out Best Buy who has a deal for $130 off a 50 inch Smart HDTV.
Plenty of us wish we could be a part of the action in Houston in two weeks, but alas, tickets are a few thousand dollars out of reach. So, if you’re not apart of the 24% of football fans who plan to purchase tickets to the big game, I have another idea that puts us closer to the action: video games. And the best part is that they are notoriously discounted this time of year. Madden ‘17 is available for all Playstation and XBOX gaming systems. You can pick this up at Target and right now they have a deal for $5 off $50 plus free shipping.
January is a great month for spectacular savings on sports apparel. Let football fans know what team you’re representing by getting decked out in your team’s colors. Champs is offering 15% off your purchase of $75 or more.
Take yourself on a cruise! You will get a really great deal right now because everyone's at home watching the game. Travelocity is offering reduced rates on select cruises and up to $1000 onboard credit!
Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Fortunately, January sees numerous discounts on diamonds and pearls from retailers like Szul and WinPearl. And lots of those department store end-of-year sales will include jewelry and accessories. Also, keep an eye out for Valentine's Day flower sales from 1-800-Flowers and Teleflora to start just before the end of the month, as well as chocolate sales from Harry & David and Godiva. These sales will cut 20% to 25% sitewide, or will offer free shipping (or both).
