 Smart Shopping Tips for South Carolina’s Tax Free Weekend

2015 Tax Free WeekendPracticing good common sense will help you save even more more during tax free weekend. For example, compare prices at several different stores and use coupons whenever possible.

In addition, be careful not to overspend just because the tax free weekend is going on in your area. The regular (base) sales tax rate in South Carolina is 6%, so that’s how much money you’d be saving—along with your local sales tax, if applicable. By shopping around, and also using coupons, you might find that the items you’re looking for are less expensive either before the tax free weekend or after it takes place. So be smart and do your “homework” before spending any hard-earned money.

Keep in mind that big outlet centers draw a lot of shopper during tax free weekend, but local stores may actually offer you better deals. So don’t overlook the stores nearest you when planning your back-to-school shopping.
