  • Shopping at TK Maxx is a bit like a trip to Ikea. It’s a good idea on principle, and you enter with that hopeful glow of one ready to bag a bargain. But you quickly deflate after sifting through racks and racks of discounts, to ultimately leave empty-handed because it’s just easier to give up.

    Luckily new stats are about to make navigating those discounts a lot easier. According to Thinknum, which analysed TK Maxx discounts over the past couples of years, the retailer’s discounts peak at the beginning of every month.

    But if you’re after a huge saving, then you won’t be surprised to hear that the biggest discounts come in January, which is of course prime sale season.

    During those times, discounts can go as high as 52%.

    Other good times to shop are July and August, presumably due to the summer sales and shifting of old stock in time for the new season.

    So if you’re planning a trip to the discount store anytime soon, know that next week is probably a good time.

    Now it’s worth noting that the research was done in America, however there’s no reason it wouldn’t be a similar pattern here in the UK. Happy bargain hunting.
