Celebrate the age-old art of hunting for a good deal with National Bargain Hunting Week, which is observed annually in the second week in August, from August 14 to 20 this year. We love the hunt and the final deals, whether we are searching for kitschy finds at a yard sale, or browsing the clearance rack at the local department store. While sales and discounts are ever-popular, the awareness about this event is relatively small.


  1. Get shopping-Patronize local stores first, then try and discover new places to bargain hunt at. You can even splurge a little and step into those stores that you never thought would offer bargains. Check out daily deal platforms like Groupon, OverStock, LivingSocial, and 1Sale for some good bargains and deals.
  2. Plan a shopping party with friends.- Instead of simply going on a bargain hunt, make a group event out of it. Get some friends together and hit local stores and new places you have yet to discover.
  3. Go hunting for someone else.- Make some time to search for good deals for an elderly folk’s home, or take a senior citizen out shopping. Buy the neighborhood kids the inflatable pool they have always wanted, or even find fun curios for your office colleagues.
  4. Turn National Bargain Hunting Week into a gift-a-palooza for your loved ones.
