Remember, while many stores may say you're getting "the best deals of the summer!", be cautious when purchasing. Some items may have dropped from last week's price, but may still be well above last month's price. Always price compare with other stores to ensure you're truly getting a great deal.

If you're looking to make a purchase, it never hurts to think of any big events coming up. Holidays and special events (like the Superbowl) usually have sales that go along with it. Although you do have to be wary, as the sales may be mostly hype, (if you price check and research) you really can find some great bargains for any event.
