EL SEGUNDO, CA (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
The first official first day of summer 2013 is drawing near and will fall on Friday, June 21st, this year. Consumer spending has been warming up this spring, and in May reached an average of $90 per day, the highest point since October 2008, according to a Gallup Poll. While a rise in spending may be a great sign for the economy, it also means smaller balances in consumers’ bank accounts. To help shoppers spend a little without breaking their budget, GoBankingRates.com has collected the best first day of summer deals and giveaways in its newest guide.
“Before heading out this Friday to enjoy some fun in the sun, first take a look at some of the ways that you can spare your bank account with first day of summer discounts and freebies,” suggests Stacey Bumpus, expert contributor to GoBankingRates.com.
