1. Buy an old iPhone

This will save you hundreds of dollars. It's simple supply and demand.
The new iPhone 11 should be on store shelves later this month. Now's a great time to buy a used or older model iPhone. If you buy used phones online, beware of scammers. Meet in person for the transaction.

2. Buy a bike

Hit the pavement with a new bike. New-model bicycles are released every September, so this is a good month to find deals on older models.
Stores need to make room for the new inventory.

3. Cheap flights

Fly on the cheap with one-way deals. Look for one-way nationwide fares to fall as low as $19 from airlines like Frontier and JetBlue. Meanwhile, Alaska Airlines, Southwest, and United will have 1-way tickets between $40 and $44. There are deep discounts this time of year, because it's shoulder season and it's hurricane season. Always consider flight insurance.

4. Cheap coffee

Your cup of Joe is a little cheaper in September thanks to National Coffee Day on September 29. That's a Sunday by the way. Many stores and restaurants will have deals on that Sunday and leading up to the big day.

5. Cheap pizza

September 4, is National Cheese Pizza Day!
September 20, is National Pepperoni Day!

Get prepared. Many pizza places want you to use a promocode so you can save big.
