In the market for a new TV? You might want to wait until December -- or at least the last week in November -- to snag a better price, says Sharon Banfield, director of public relations for PriceGrabber.com.
Expect better deals: After the holiday shopping season begins, Banfield says. "You can get some fantastic buys -- between 20 (percent) to 25 percent," she says. But, as with most things tech, "If you're getting the latest and greatest of everything, you're not going to get the biggest discount."
What is a bargain now: If you don't want to wait for a holiday sale on a TV, you might find great deals on last year's models, Banfield says.
Or, if you're getting ready for holiday guests, it's good time to get a deal on new furniture. Many retailers offer markdowns of 20 percent to 30 percent off in November, says Daniel Butler, vice president of retail operations for the National Retail Federation.
Need extra dinnerware, barware, cookware or table linens for the holiday feast? You're in luck, Banfield says. While deals will vary, she says, look for discounts of about 20 percent in November.
