What to buy in March: Travel deals, luggage, frozen food, electronics and more

Looking to score a great deal in March? Here are some of the best buys on offer this month.

Travel

Spring is the perfect time of year to go on an international or domestic getaway since it falls right between the busy holiday and summer travel seasons. Many airlines and hotels offer special packages and deals to entice people to get out of town. Travelers can potentially save between 15 percent to 40 percent on sites such as Expedia, Trivago and Kayak.

Expedia:Travelers who book trips to Negril, Jamaica, San Diego and Hawaii can enjoy big savings on select package deals.

Trivago: March is a great time to score select hotel deals with Trivago if you visit cities such as Vancouver, British Columbia; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Seattle and Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Kayak: Want to go on an overseas trip? Kayak data shows that you can score a good deal to Milan, London and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, this month.

Luggage

If you’re looking to travel in style, March is a smart time to upgrade your luggage. Many brands need to get rid of old inventory to make room for newer styles that are often released in May. You can get up to 50 percent off at J.C. Penney and Macy’s on brands such a Samsonite, Columbia, and Travelpro.

Electronics

The best deals on TVs and other electronics tend to emerge around Black Friday and the Super Bowl, but you may be able to stock up on a discounted TV in March if you shop wisely. Cameras and small personal electronics also tend to go on sale in March since newer models are released at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. You can get up to $300 off cameras, up to $100 off tablets and up to $300 off TVs at stores such as Sears, Best Buy, Amazon and Wal-Mart.

Jewelry

Since many retailers offer discounts on jewelry around Valentine’s Day, March is the right time of year to take advantage of any overstock. Stores such as Kay Jewelers, Zales, Sears, Macy’s and Blue Nile will be offering up to 75 percent off fine jewelry, diamonds, bridal jewelry and fashion watches.

March is National Frozen Food Month and to celebrate, a variety of manufacturers will be putting their frozen foods on sale. This is an optimal time to stock up on favorites such as pizza, veggies, fruit and poultry — or even just to experiment with new frozen food brands.
