Top Spring Sales for 2017

As Americans spring forward into longer daylight hours, retailers are hoping to increase foot and website traffic with sales on everything from apparel to home goods to travel services. While spring break is a big driver for deals on swimwear and travel-booking sites, St. Patrick's Day and Easter also influence retail promotions as consumers seek out savings on these events. According to the National Retail Federation, Easter was the fifth-highest holiday for consumer spending in 2015, and St. Patrick's Day is expected to break records this year with up to $5.3 billion in estimated sales.

Celebrate the return of spring with these top deals.
