November and December are typically the best months for bargain shopping. November has the bargain-shopping trio of Thanksgiving Day/Black Friday/Cyber Monday lined up, all full of great deals from manufacturers and retailers. December’s routine includes pre-holiday price cutting and post-holiday price-slashing. And few items are better priced this month and next than electronics. Even in tough economic times when money concerns are plaguing everyone, consumers are poised to come out on top when purchasing gadgets. But what should you buy?
Retailers want to move products, perhaps even more so this year than most. So shoppers can expect discounts on cameras, camcorders, HDTVs, laptops, gaming consoles—all that fun stuff. Luckily, bargains won’t only be on the big-ticket items. Electronics accessories like camera cases or laptop bags will be discounted too.
Of all the electronic products you can buy now, some of the best deals you can get are on laptops and desktops. Similar to car dealerships that have blow-out end-of-year sales to make room for new models, PC manufacturers need to rid shelves of old inventory to make way for the new. Unlike car dealerships, where it happens once a year, PC companies cycle through new inventory several times a year. Not surprisingly though, the end of the year is their biggest push.
New systems are typically announced in September and October. The good news here is that the cool laptop you saw in August is now most likely discounted as a new model takes its place. Better news, average computer users like us who download photos and music, chat on e-mail and search the Web don’t need the newest and latest laptop or desktop, it’s overkill and the previous generation model will suit our computing needs just fine.
Remember, to get the very best electronics deal you need to comparison shop and stay on top of the weekly circulars. Discount deals fluctuate from day to day, store to store; and you don’t want to spend one cent more than you have to.
