6 On Your Side: Consumer Confidence, What to Buy November 2022
(ABC 6 News) – If you’re shocked by price tags on nearly everything recently, you’re not alone.
But, with the early holiday shopping season already underway, there is some good news: November is traditionally the best month to find big discounts on many products!
From TVs to vacuum cleaners to coffee makers, there are deals across the board this month, just in time for the holiday-shopping madness.
Consumer Reports tracks the prices of many of its top-tested products all year long, so it knows exactly when they go on deep discount.
Here are the top products to look out for in this month’s Best Time to Buy.
“Most tech products are going to be at their deepest discounts on Thanksgiving, but if you’re looking for a TV, wait until Black Friday when they’ll see their biggest deals. Keep in mind that sale prices will be fluctuating all month long, so if you see a good deal, grab it,” says CR Shopping Editor Samantha Gordon.
The Samsung O-LED 4K UHD TV is CR’s top-rated 65-inch TV and is currently on sale for $1997.99 at Abt Electronics and Amazon. CR says this smart TV is one of the best it’s ever tested.
Next, surprise a coffee-lover with a better coffee-house-style brew. The Ninja Specialty Coffee Maker is a CR-recommended model and is currently $169.99 at Amazon and Best Buy.
Even if it’s cold outside, you can heat things up with a wood-fired outdoor pizza oven! The Gyber Fremont 29-inch wood-fired pizza oven is now on sale for $254 at Lowe’s. CR says this wood-pellet heated outdoor pizza oven holds a slightly larger pizza of about 13 inches than the other wood-fired options.
If certain types of earbuds are breaking the budget this year, CR says you can find others offering great sound quality for a fraction of the price. The Audio-Technica Wireless Earbuds are a CR ‘Best Buy’ and are currently $79 at Amazon.
Finally, if you plan on hosting for the holidays, save big now on keeping your home clean. The Eufy 11S vacuum cleaner is a CR ‘Best Buy’ and is now $149.99 at Amazon. CR says this affordable robovac was great at navigating its specially designed test area, and the Eufy is also one of the quieter models it’s tested.
Consumer Reports also says to keep an eye out for deals on laptops and computers, air fryers, smartwatches, smart speakers, mattresses, and more. November is a good time to make a big dent on your shopping list, something for someone else, and maybe yourself, too.
