Deal Diva: January discounts to get 2019 started off right

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - You might be experiencing a shopping hangover from last month, but January has great deals to offer to jump start your 2019.

If you are trying to stick to those new year resolutions and live a healthier lifestyle, there are bargains geared toward helping you achieve your goals.

Lots of gyms will offer great rates and discounts for annual memberships. Look for gyms to waive extra fees. You consumers can save anywhere from $10 to $100 on an annual membership.

Just be sure to read the fine print in your contract.

If working out at home is more your thing, look for bargains on fitness equipment. Treadmills, ellipticals, and even digital scales are typically on sale right now.

Want to give the bedroom or bathroom a new look for the new year? Bedding and towels are deeply discounted this month. These so-called “White Sales” show up in January and retail blog site Deal News says traditionally you’ll see big discounts on basic bedding, bath and home needs.

Also, shoppers can look for discounts on winter clothing and winter weather sports gear. Several retailers are clearing out to get ready for the spring inventory.

It is also a great time to find deals on winter coats, popular winter clothing brands, and winter boots.

Lastly, if you didn’t travel during the holidays, start the year off with a getaway.

January is said to be the travel industry’s off-season, so it could be a good time to visit a big city.

Finally, if you didn’t get the TV of your dreams during Black Friday or after Christmas, try your luck next month. Many retailers will mark big screens on sale, just in time for the Super Bowl.
