The Best and Worst Things to Buy in July 2017

The summer is sizzling, but some of your hottest deals this month will benefit you most when the weather simmers down.

What not to buy in July

Amazon Prime Day junk items

Though it wasn’t as much of a problem last year, some Prime Day deals were on strange items like krill oil pills, furniture-moving slings or this $1,000 investment. So while there will be some great deals, we urge shoppers to avoid impulse buys on such filler items.


Sorry, you may think this obvious, but just in case you didn’t know: It’s not a good time to buy a grill! You probably want one for your summer festivities, but so does everyone else, which is why stores will offer minor discounts at best. Wait another month for prices that will be 40 percent lower.
