8 Things on Deep Discount in April

Written by |

Spring is finally here and the deals are sprouting up in abundance. Whether you’re looking to capitalize on some end-of-season winter clearance items or get a great price on the things you need to help you enjoy the warmer weather to come, this is the month for you!

Here Are the Best April Deals

Lawn and Gardening Supplies

Black Friday in April?! That’s right: This is the month when The Home Depot and Lowe’s Home Improvement usually herald the arrival of spring with their Spring Black Friday events.

You’ll find savings on landscaping products, planters, potting soil, outdoor tools and more. Lowe’s started previewing Spring Fest deals on March 22. The sale formally gets underway on April 4 and runs all month long through May 1. Meanwhile, we expect The Home Depot’s Spring Kickoff sale to begin in early to mid-April, but early deals are already out now. We’ll have both store events all covered for you over at ClarkDeals.com.

Snow Blower Deals

For every yin in the savings world, there must be a yang, and as spring comes in, winter goes out. That’s why this is a great month for end-of-season clearance deals on winter merchandise.

As just one example, you’ll find snow blowers and shovels on deep discount over at Snow Joe (while supplies last).


April has a few notable food holidays that usually offer up the opportunity to get some discounted or free food.

For example, this month you can look forward to National Burrito Day (April 4) and National Pretzel Day (April 26).

Car Maintenance Supplies

With spring break season upon us, you might be thinking about hitting the open road to take a trip. April marks National Car Care Month, according to the Car Care Council.

Be on the lookout for sales on car parts and accessories from major automotive supply stores including AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, O’Reilly Auto Parts and others.

Easter Clearance Merchandise

After the Sunday, March 31, holiday passes, the deals on clearance Easter candy and decor begin. Particularly when it comes to the latter, it’s easy to snatch up the deals later this month and then have a whole new slate of decorations to roll out next Easter. Be sure to (s)hop early for the best selection!


Designer Sunglasses

Protecting your eyes is on everyone’s mind this month. That’s thanks to the solar eclipse that will be happening on April 8. It’s going to be the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States until 2044, so you don’t want to miss this one!

Fortunately, you can grab a free pair of solar eclipse glasses for safe viewing from Warby Parker starting April 1. We’ve got details here. And if a Warby Parker location is not in your vicinity, our team over at ClarkDeals.com has spied a few deals on solar eclipse glasses at Amazon to get you ready for the big celestial occasion, but they tend to go fast. Be sure to check the expected shipping date to ensure they arrive in time!

Meanwhile, April tends to be a big month for savings on designer eyewear in general. Historically, we’ve seen sales at websites including Woot, eBay and Meh throughout the month. So designer sunglasses season is definitely upon us. Be sure to keep an “eye” out for some cool shades!

And when it comes to fashionable and budget-friendly shades, you may want to consider Shady Rays. If you lose or break a pair, Shady Rays offers a lost/broken replacement plan that will get you into a brand new pair for a nominal processing fee starting at $11.89!

National Park Admission

Mark your calendars: The National Park Service is offering free admission to sites that normally charge an entrance fee on April 20.

That particular day marks the first day of National Park Week. While many national parks are free every day, more than 100 of them regularly charge fees between $3 and $30.

The fee waiver includes entrance fees, commercial tour fees and transportation entrance fees. Find more details here.

Earth Day Promotions

Earth Day is on April 22. While you might not automatically associate the day with saving money, there is some precedent for that idea.

In years past, we’ve seen some of the big box office supply stores such as Office Depot offer free paper shredding around the holiday. Staples has previously offered a coupon to save $10 on a purchase of $30+ if you brought in select electronics for recycling.

To top it all off, energy companies will typically offer subsidized smart thermostats this month as well. It’s too early to tell yet if these promotions will be duplicated this year, but it’s wise to put the possibility in your mind.


Meanwhile, you can also go green and save green any time of the year by buying refurbished electronics and other goods. Amazon Renewed, Gazelle and eBay Refurbished are a couple of great places to do this.

And let’s not forget to give some savings love to used threads! Lululemon lets you trade in used gear for a merchandise credit, while big brands like REI, Vera Bradley and Levi’s have specially dedicated sections for gently used clothing and gear. Of course, ThredUp is a major player in the online sale of used clothing, too. Also, you might want to peruse this list of items you can buy and reuse!

Final Thoughts

Like the aperture of a camera opening up, April brings spring blossoms to life all around us. And fortunately for deal diggers, the savings also come back to life in a very real way.

So even though this month gets started with April Fools’ Day, this is a month for serious money saving!
