COPY-When it comes to good deals, timing is everything

(CNN) - The Super Bowl is just a few days away and you might be tempted to run out and buy a brand new TV.

A word of caution - Don't.

Every product has a season and timing is everything, especially when it comes to shopping.

According to lifehacker.com, you'll have to wait until spring to get the best price on a new TV.

"April is actually a great time to buy a new TV, especially if you don't need the latest and greatest," said Adam Pash with lifehacker.com. "You can get really good discounts on last year's models."

April is also the cheapest time to book and take a cruise.

In the summer, look for sales on appliances and furniture, especially over holiday weekends. Wine is also cheaper in late summer, before the harvest. Prices pick up in the fall.

Late fall is the best time to buy anything wedding related, especially dresses, because fewer people get married in the winter months.

There are some great deals to be had right now, like gas grills, air conditioners and off-season sporting items like bikes.

Prices usually go up as the weather gets warmer, so planning ahead and buying now could save you money.
