The Best Deals in November
Posted on Monday, November 13th, 2017 at 7:00 am
November marks the beginning of the most expensive time of the year. It is when people start spending money on gifts for loved ones and holiday travel expenses. Fortunately, November is also a month that includes some of the best deals of the year. You can save some money if you shop smart.
Old models of iPhone
Every time Apple launches a brand new version of the iPhone, there will be people who are willing to line up in order to buy it on the day it comes out.
If you need a new smartphone, but don’t feel the need to get the newest, hottest, version – there is an opportunity to save money. Buy an older model of the iPhone that is newer than the one you already have. This allows you to upgrade a very old iPhone model for one that is newer without paying full price for it.
Video Games and Consoles
Many types of electronics drop in price during November. Stores like GameStop, Walmart, Target, and Best Buy are likely to have older models of video game consoles on sale. The consoles are often sold in “bundles” that include some of the video games that fit in the console. In addition, video games that are not part of the bundle may be on sale as well.
Brand new models for refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, and other appliances come out in September and October. Stores need to get rid of the older models in order to make space for the new ones. Do some price comparisons, and you might be able to replace an old, malfunctioning, appliance with a brand new one at a nicely discounted price.
Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday Sales
The way to get the best deals on the largest sales of the entire year is to plan ahead. Find out which stores will be open on Thanksgiving. Identify what products are the most important for you to purchase this year, and choose a store that is likely to sell it. Create a list of things you want to buy during those sales. The list is useful to keep you focused in the chaos of these frantic sales.
Does someone in your family need a new bicycle? Is your child old enough for their very first bicycle? Purchase a bicycle in November. It will be at the lowest price of the year. This is especially true for states that experience winter weather. You can’t ride a bicycle through the snow. Demand for bicycles goes down – and so does the price.
