Timing Military Discounts For Mothers Day

Timing Military Discounts For Mothers Day

Our friends at Decide.com have put together a guide on best time of the year to buy Mother’s Day gifts. To our surprise, the best time to purchase most Mother’s Day gifts is right before Mother’s Day. Decide.com looked at four major purchase categories:

Jewelry
Designer Handbags
Designer Wallets
Flowers

Jewelry

In the case of jewelry, the Decide.com price chart shows that the last week of April and the first week of May is the best time purchase jewelry. If one were looking for discounts based upon timing alone, one can expect to save on average 25%. If you combine timing with an everyday military discount of 10%, you are looking at a savings of roughly 33% off the base price.

Here is a list of national chain stores that have military and veteran discounts on jewelry:
Kroger Family Of Jewelers [Smith’s, Kroger, Fred Meyer, Dillons]- 10% off
Zales - 10%
Kay Jewelers -up to 25% off

You can find more in depth purchase price analysis from Decide.com.



Designer Handbags

Pricing on designer handbags range from $100 to $300 and similar to jewelry, Decide.com’s analysis states the best time to purchase these handbags is two to three weeks prior to Mother’s Day. Users can expect seasonal savings of 25% and save an average of $40. Timing these discounts with military discounts is crucial and leveraging a site like eBags.com, where military and veterans can save 30% everyday will give you an average of savings of 52%.

Smart shoppers that wait can expect to save an average of 25% of the average retail prices between $50 and $200 and the average dollar savings is $40.00. Macy’s is the only store on this list to have a military discount program. You can learn about the Macy's military discount program here.

Flowers

Flowers is the one category Decide.com reports where prices actually increase prior to Mother’s day, then drop. Waiting two weeks after Mother's Day will save an average of 25%, but may cause a lifetime of regret. MVDC does not want to cause any family strife and we highly recommend you do not wait. For those that heed our advice, MVDC has two flower partners with military and veterans discounts for Mother’s Day:
