Atlanta: October 5 through the 7th is a good time to buy an array of home improvement products.. Because you won't be charged sales tax on them.
Here are three ways to save even more:
1.) Shop at stores that already have energy star items on sale. Both Home Depot, Lowe's, Sears and Frye have many items marked down for the weekend.
2.) Also, see what rebates you qualify for. www.energystar.gov has a list of things you can buy to get a rebate, everything from refrigerators to light bulbs. You also may qualify for a rebate if you recycle your old appliances.
3.) Save your receipts for a tax credit. While a lot of the Energy Star Tax credits from last year have expired, wind turbines, solar energy systems and geothermal heat pumps still qualify
And Lastly, when your shopping use a bar code scanner on your smart phone if you have one to compare prices.
