Tips for more Savings during Tax Free Shopping days

  • Keep an eye out for “Early Bird” shopping hours and special deals that can add to your savings during tax free weekend (many coupons are not allowed during these days).
  • Dollar limits usually apply to each item you buy, as opposed to your entire purchase having to fall under a certain amount. Know the rules & be prepared before you shop.
  • Layaway items may be tax-free if paid off before the holiday ends, or if put in layaway during the holiday. The rules on layaways, rain checks and special orders vary state by state. Know the conditions beforehand to save the most money.
  • Check neighboring states. Planning a trip to visit the grandparents out of state? Live near the border of another state? See if those states offer sales tax holidays.
