Slickdeals Community Review & Preview Report: Top Online Deals and Coupons

Outdoor Deals Dominate April, May Eventful With Summer Movies and Holidays

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2013) - With the end of April 2013 just around the corner, we took a look at the best deals of this month and make predictions for the top bargains and coupons for May 2013.

April 2013 Review

  • Home and Garden: April was big for home improvement projects, and we saw many of our top deals on tools and gardening supplies. Many of our users jumped on Home Depot's $5 off $50 and $10 off $100 coupons this month and Sears and Lowes were regular destinations for gardening deals like a 3-piece nozzle set for $8, a 100-ft hose for $20, and premium mulch for $2.
  • Auto: Last month, we predicted car deals to be hot in April, and we were right: Advance Auto Parts featured several coupons in April, the best of which was a $50 off $100 promo. Deals on GPS navigation systems like a $70 Garmin Nuvi from TigerDirect.com were also a hit.
  • Electronics: Tech deals trended well in April after a sluggish month in March. In particular, TV deals were hot this month as we saw back-to-back bargains from Dell: a Samsung 55" TV + $400 gift card for $998 and a Samsung 50" TV + $200 gift card for $748. Our members continued to take advantage of Rakuten's $10, $15, and $20 off $50 coupons for cheap deals on tech goodies.
  • Android App: The biggest buzz in April was the release of the official Slickdeals App for Android! Android users can download the free app and take advantage of features like Deal Alerts and Frontpage Deal push notifications.

May 2013 Preview

  • Movies: May marks the start of another blockbuster summer with movies like Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness and Fast and Furious 6. To save some cash, Visa Signature card holders can take advantage of Fandango's buy one get one free movie tickets every Friday of the summer.
  • Mother's Day: April showers brings May flowers, so don't forget Mom on this all important holiday happening on May 12. Jewelry retailers are already offering sitewide discounts as well as super low prices on beautiful items Mom will love. If Mom loves flowers, make sure you order early to get them to their destination on time and save on shipping costs. Personalized gifts are also popular gift ideas, so expect great deals from arts and crafts merchants. Apparel is always a hit with Moms of all ages and we anticipate huge sitewide discounts from LOFT, Macy's, and Kohl's.
  • Memorial Day: Memorial Day kicks off the summer grilling season and retailers like Sears, Lowe's, and Home Depot should have huge sales on grills and patio furniture the entire month of May. No BBQ is complete without food and drinks, so we foresee food and wine retailers to gear up for this busy season.
  • Travel: For those planning a long weekend getaway, Travelocity, Hotels.com, Budget, and Cheap Caribbean will offer special discounts to help you save on flights, hotels, and even all-inclusive vacations.
