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 Spring Fest Sale has already begun as of March 30, and the sale lasts through April 12. We expect The Home Depot’s Spring Black Friday sale to begin the first week of 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 7) and National Pretzel Day (April 26).

Meanwhile, doing some Easter prep for a family meal at your home this year? Be sure to check out our list of restaurants that offer family meals for takeout or delivery to help you along!

You’ll never miss another free food opportunity no matter what month you’re in when you sign up for the ClarkDeals.com newsletter.

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, April 9, 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

Looking cool and protecting your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun are two things that go hand in hand as the warmer weather starts. Historically, we’ve seen sales on designer sunglasses at websites including Woot, eBay and Meh during the month of April.

Looking back to April 2021, we saw discounts on Costa Del Mar sunglasses, in addition to Oakley and Ray-Bans from $48 at the tail end of March 2022. These were available at Amazon’s discount site, Woot. 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 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 $9.89!

National Park Admission

Mark your calendars: The National Park Service is offering free admission to sites that normally charge an entrance fee on April 22.

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 also 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 and Gazelle 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 and Vera Bradley 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 off with April Fools’ Day, this is actually a month for serious money saving!
