If you’re a bargain hunter, there’s no doubt you love November thanks to Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. As holiday shopping kicks off, here are your best bets for big savings through the month of November.

Electronics and video games

Black Friday is all about the upcoming gift-giving holidays. Computers, tablets, headphones, smartwatches, digital cameras, activity trackers, and video game consoles are high on everyone’s wish lists. For the best deals, look for refurbs or last-generation models. You’ll also find bundled gifts such as Xbox and PlayStation consoles packaged with hot games, or cameras that come with extra accessories.

Small appliances

Black Friday is ideal to purchase gifts for the home. Coffeemakers, blenders, waffle makers, cookware, and other kitchen gadgets are popular as people prepare to host holiday feasts or shop for presents. Vacuum deals are rampant this time of year, too!

Frozen pies

Look for post-Thanksgiving sales on pumpkin and apple pies in the freezer case.


Hurry — the short season ends in November and they make beautiful holiday table decorations in addition to being a delicious treat.

Food storage

With Thanksgiving feasts come leftovers, and that’s why food storage like foil, plastic wrap and plastic containers will be on sale.

Honeycrisp apples

These super-popular and pricey apples get cheaper in November and even into December when crops are harvested.
