Chances are you're not thinking about air conditioners as the temps start to fall, but you should if you want to get a good deal.   The stores don't want to take up valuable storage space, so they'd rather get rid of their air conditioners,  which means deep discounts for you.  Buy one now and you'll be glad next summer.

October is a good month to buy a gas grill, patio furniture or other summer outdoor gear.  The stores want summer merchandise gone, so they're gonna discount these items to get rid of them.

With the newer models arriving, you'll get a better appliance deal if you don't mind buying an older model.
