Money Tip: May Is the Month to Find Deals on Fitness Gear

If discounts are your thing, you'll welcome a 30 to 60 percent break on fitness gear like clothes and apparel. The time to hop on those discounts? Now! According to Dan Butler, VP of retail operations for the National Retail Federation, May is the month that retailers begin offering discounts on athletic apparel to empty their inventories before the end of the Summer.

In the May issue of Real Simple, Butler reveals discounts on fitness gear also come around whenever there's a natural disaster and explained, "Some people will wear out their shoes during storm cleanup, and those unaffected invest in more durable pairs in the event that destructive weather hits in their zip code."

Will you be taking advantage of the May fitness gear sales?

This is great to know, but I have to admit that I didn't really follow Butler's point about natural disasters. I would think that the increase in demand following a natural disaster would actually push prices up higher rather than making it a good time to get a deal on things like new sneakers. Plus, sneakers aside, I don't think many people are going out and buying new hand weights or treadmills during a disaster.
