(ABC 6 NEWS) – With Fall in full swing, there are some good deals out there.

Fall has just made its way here, but it’s not too early to start thinking about Holiday shopping as retailers begin to roll out blockbuster sales events this month.

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 top products to look out for in this month’s Best Time to Buy.

With two multi-day sitewide sales this month, Target Deal Days and Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale, you’ll be able to find deals that come close to what we expect for Black Friday on giftable items like tech devices, kitchen appliances, fitness equipment, apparel, toys, and so much more,” Samantha Gordon, Consumer Reports Shopping editor said.

CR says the long weekend around Indigenous Peoples’ Day, also called Columbus Day, is typically a good time to find deals on mattresses and large appliances.

The Casper Original Mattress is a CR ‘Best Buy,’ and a Queen-sized is now $1,165 at Amazon.
Next, upgrade your kitchen with a brand new smoothtop range.

And now that Apple recently released its new iPhone, October is a great month to find lowered prices on top-rated previous models.

This Apple iPhone SE is a CR ‘Best Buy’ and is $429 at Amazon. CR says this is the best iPhone under $500 it has tested.

And finally, keep the climate under control in your home with a new thermostat.
