Do you plan your online shopping based around the day of the week? You should!

You may already know about finding great deals based on the time of year or month, but even the day of the week can affect the price you’ll pay. For example, did you know Wednesday at 1 a.m. is the best time to purchase airline tickets? The travel industry isn’t the only one. In fact, many retailers will wait until certain days to release their discounts.

Curious about what days of the week are best for shopping at your favorite online stores? Rather Be Shopping recently posted a guide on when and where to shop online and score the best deals. Here are a few of the retailer sites to check out:
