    Any time during the winter is a smart time to buy an air conditioner, because the demand for them is very low, and the prices are too.  FreeShipping.org also says that February is the best time to have your existing air conditioners serviced. Photo Credit: CarbonNYC

    While everyone else is rushing out to buy roses for their Valentine’s Day dates, maybe you should get tulips instead. GetRichSlowly reports that tulips are generally cheapest in February.

    The travel industry tends to bottom out in February, between the big holiday rush at the beginning of the year and spring break in March and April. So, according to AOL Shopping, that makes this month the perfect time to find discounted luggage. Photo Credit: sun dazed

    As long as we’re being romantic, let’s talk weddings. According to Freeshipping.org, the cheapest time to have a wedding is between November and February, since most people prefer to have their special day in the warmer months.

    January and February are the two best months to find bargain priced digital cameras. According to Yahoo Finance, “With the Consumer Electronics Show and Photo Marketing Association convention at this time of year, new camera models start arriving at retailers. That means deep discounts on last year's perfectly good merchandise.” Photo Credit: BestBuy.com
