This week in deals: Lunar New Year deals that will keep you prosperous


Gung how fat choy (恭禧發財)! The Chinese New Year was this past Sunday. Many people in parts of Asia and across the world celebrate the first day of the lunar calendar. I grew up celebrating the Chinese New Year by eating duk guk, a traditional Korean dish with rice cakes and broth (every country has their own traditions and rituals). I was told it would bring me good fortune and an additional year of life.

We would wear our hanbok (traditional costumes), wished our elders a Happy New Year and sebae (bow to them). They would wish us good health, prosperity and happiness. After, we would get sebae don (pocket money, also known as "lucky money" for the Chinese). 

At that early age, I would take the money which would come out to be around $300 and budget for things that I needed the entire year. It was my first peak into saving money, budgeting and finding ways to buy things for less than retail price and get more for my money.

With your budget in mind for the Lunar New Year, we have 5 of the best deals on our site for you:
