Scambook, the Internet’s leading consumer advisory platform, is letting consumers in on a little online bargain shopping secret that some days of the week yield better deals than others.

“Depending on the item, consumers can save even more money on their online purchases by purchasing different items on different days. Many consumers are unaware that such a trend occurs for online bargain shopping and we want to educate them to help save money,” says Scambook’s Director of Marketing Kase Chong.

The online website ShopItToMe.com devoted to helping consumers save money while shopping online, has researched over a hundred retail sites to determine which categories receive the largest discounts and when. Based on data collected between June 2009 and June 2010, they were able to make the following conclusions:

Monday: Monday’s, the day that kicks off the workweek, offers about 48% off dress pants and to hide those sleepy eyes an average 55% off sunglasses.

Tuesday: Whether guys are looking for a new outfit, or friends and family are shopping for a present, all men’s clothing have an average discount of 42% across the web.

Wednesday: To get you over the hump, give in to that shoe obsession as footwear falls around 38% off on online sites. Kids’ clothing as well hit a 40% discount, making it the perfect time to get them that weekend outfit.

Thursday: With some considering Thursday the start to the weekend, a new handbag is in order and can be purchased with an average 36% discount throughout the web.

Friday: Officially the weekend, women can buy accessories to add those finishing touches on an outfit for an average 42% off. Bracelets, necklaces, and earrings are all marked down online.

Saturday: While everyone has time to shop those less common items seem to be getting the largest discounts with intimates 37% off and jackets and outerwear 51% off on the Internet.

Sunday: The day of relaxation offers close to 52% off online swimwear, perfect to arrive by the next weekend outing.
