Best days of the week to make certain purchases

Best days of the week for certain purchases

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT/WXIX) - Getting into the habit of making certain purchases on certain days will save you money.

The biggest purchase most people will ever make is a house.

Research from housing data site Realtytrac finds the best day to buy a house is on Monday.

People who close on Mondays save an average of 2.3% on their homes.

So why is this? Well, analysts say sellers are less likely to get the best offers early in the week and that makes them more open to the offers they do get.

From homes to wine, now. Data from savings app Ibotta finds that buying wine on Tuesdays will save you about 6% compared to other days.

And if you’re buying beer, picking it up on a Monday means you’ll pay about 9% less than if you buy it on a Saturday.

When it comes to airfare, traveling on Tuesdays or Wednesdays mean you’ll pay, on average, $73 less for that plane ticket, compared to flying on Sundays, which are the most expensive travel day.

If that trip is to Disneyworld or Disneyland, try to visit during the week.

A one-day ticket to the Magic Kingdom will cost you $125 on a weekday, but $139 on the weekend.

The park is also usually less crowded Tuesday through Thursday, too.
