There are sales on many items this October, such as warm-weather apparel and related items. But hold off on holiday shopping a bit longer because many things won’t be on sale until Black Friday in November.
Like Camping? Outdoor retailers like Cabelas and REI will reduce prices up to 70% on warm weather stuff in their end of season promotional sales this month. Find pop-up chairs, mesh tents, and open air covers and much more at steep discounts.
Grills. Still on sale are those last grills not sold in September sales. But retailers will need to move them before winter so you can get up to 50% on select models. This is great for our neighbors here at Brunswick Plantation because our mild climate allows outdoor cooking and living year round.
Halloween items. Of course the best deals are after Halloween is over…think 50-90% off decorations and costumes. But deals of 30-50% off can be found the week before at places like BuyCostumes.com, Target, Carter’s and Meijer.
Travel. Fall is known as shoulder season….the time between summer and the holidays. Since less people travel during this time deals in October and early November can be found on flights to many places in the U.S., Europe, and the Carribean. Look for big discounts on combo air fare and stay packages as well.
Don’t Buy These Just Yet…
Cars. People still say and think fall is the best time to buy a new car. This used to be true as new models were rolled out and the previous year’s put on sale. However, many manufacturers roll out new models year round today. But what is still true is that the dealers will have big sales in December trying to make their yearly numbers better as their fiscal year ends.
HDTVs and laptops. Similarly, the best deals won’t happen until Black Friday up to Christmas.
Video games. Retailers are wise to the great demand for video games as holiday gifts, so don’t look for any deals now. There will be some last minute deals but of course the best deals are after the holidays.
